Need Help With Breakfast!
0

34 posts in this topic

I desparately need some ideas. Being gluten free, dairy and egg free, what can I have for breakfast that is high in protein? gluten-free cereals just don't cut it...I've been eating a great protein bar but just realized I shouldn't eat it because it has oats.

What do you eat for breakfast? Please help!

Thanks!

Chicken, steak, pork are all good sources of protein. Nuts are also good.

Sometimes I eat cereal or hot cereal like cream of buckwheat or Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty. Then I will have some Hormel sliced ham or turkey. I usually microwave it for 15 seconds to warm it up.

You can eat anything for breakfast really. But leftover pasta or pork chops don't appeal to me.

Toast with peanut butter, sunflower seed butter or almond butter. PB&J sandwich. gluten-free waffles or pancakes with a nut butter.

Have you ever tried quinoa? It's a wonderful grain, the only grain that is considered a complete protein! Usually, the only way to get a complete protein is to eat meat or to pair non-meat items like brown rice and beans. "Complete Protein" just means it contains all the essential amino acids that your body needs. It also has carbs, fibre, and healthy fats. You cook it much like rice, the ratio of water is 2:1 (2 cups water to 1 cup quinoa), it has a nice texture, and you can add anything to it, really. For breakfast, I would add some berries (frozen or fresh), or raisins and apple, some cinnamon, honey, and almond milk would make it nice and creamy, if you can find one without soy (I haven't yet, so if you have, let me know :P).

Not everyone can eat steak or chicken for breakfast, so this is a nice alternative that is still meeting your dietary needs, yet is still kinda "breakfast-y" ;)

I don't have the dairy/eggs issue, but for breakfast I eat my own home made brown rice hot cereal.

Once a month, I toast brown rice in the oven on a jelly roll sheet. Then I run it through the coffee grinder (after I clean it out of course, I like coffee in the morning, just not IN my cereal). Then, each morning I mix 1/4 cup ground brown rice w/ 1 & 1/2 cups liquid (I use half milk half water, just because I like it) and nuke it at half power for 10 minutes. Mix a little gluten free vanilla, a teaspoon of sugar and I'm set. Two pounds of rice last me a whole month.

It has taken me awhile to adapted to a different way of eating and breakfast :blink: but now it is pretty normal for me to eat one of these for breakfast::

ground pork patty with a side of fruit

lamb stir-fry

ground lamb gravy with rice

lamb chop :D with a side of fried sweet potatoes

ground turkey and rice patty ( ground turkey,red onion,cooked rice mixed together and fried)

Silk Pure Almond milk in the refrigerated case states on the carton it is soy-free and I haven't had any allergic reaction to it. Seems strange that Silk would be soy-free, but no eczema from it for me (my first soy symptom), so you might want to give it a try.

Some great ideas here! I just wanted to add that you aren't alone!! I am in the same boat you are. But I AM able to do some oats, so oatmeal is good for me. I also gave up on the idea that breakfast food was the only foods I could eat in the mornings. Many days, leftovers from last night's supper is my breakfast!! Who says it can only be eaten later in the day?

Sear some unpeeled potatoes, add thick chunks of gluten-free chorizo and season with a touch of smoked paprika and S and P, and throw the whole pan into the oven to roast. Sprinkle with scallions or ramps. I know that you cannot unfortunately have dairy ( :angry: ) but for those who can you can sprinkle with some old cheddar, manchego, whatever.

This might work for you: a gluten free, eggless pancake or flatbread made of a buckwheat blend.

Buckwheat Pan- Flatcake

1 heaping tablespoon of ground up toasted buckwheat (kasha) kernels (use coffeegrinder or kitchen mortar. can also use gluten-free buckwheat flour. kasha tastes better)

1 heaping tablespoon of gluten free chickpea (garbanzo) flour

1 heaping tablespoon of potato starch

pinch of cream of tartar

pinch of salt

good sized pinch (about a quarter teasp.) of baking soda

spice to taste, optional. (cumin, cinnamon, cloves, curry, anise seed, caraway, grated orange peel - can be very versatile)

sweetener to taste, optional. I use a tiny glop of molasses and agave

pure apple cider vinegar, about a half teaspoon

olive oil, about a teaspoon

water, small amount

olive oil (or other) for frying in skillet. preheat oil in pan, carefully.

In a bowl, put the oil, vinegar, agave/molasses if using, and a tablespoon or two of water, and mix. Add the buckwheat first, and stir to soften, while you are measuring out the other ingredients. Then add them. Add enough water to make a thick pancake consistency, and stir well til blended. Pour batter into heated oiled pan. Cook until bottom is done, edges are drying, and bubbles are coming up thru, then flip and finish cooking.

The beauty of this is that, depending on how it is flavored and sweetened, or not, it can be used as a sandwich bread when cut in half, or as a pancake base, as gluten-free nan with Indian curry, or topped with anything. One of these topped with sliced banana is very filling for breakfast, for example. You could also add additional protein, such as a dairy free cheese or some nut butter. Hummus dip would also be good, as well as a bean/meat chile. :)

Apples or celery with peanut butter or another nut butter.

Any nuts. Anything with beans or rice.

You may try to find a protein shake mix that's gluten free (I don't know of any off the top of my head).

Silk Pure Almond milk in the refrigerated case states on the carton it is soy-free and I haven't had any allergic reaction to it. Seems strange that Silk would be soy-free, but no eczema from it for me (my first soy symptom), so you might want to give it a try.

I want to add that Blue Diamond just revamped their almond milk too--and there is no soy in it. Look for them in the dairy section with the new label saying "NOW SOY FREE!!" Do NOT buy the ones on the shelf--they are the old formula and have soy lecithin in it.

I eat all these sorts of things for breakfast. Yesterday I had salmon and this morning it was sampling of my crockpotted roast.

Gosh, some of this sounds good (but it's 5 PM as I read this ;) , and I wish I could eat like this in the morning. Maybe I am still too raw in the tummy for meats and such for breakfast. I have a hard time working up an appetite for "dinner" at breakfast. LOL

I assume you guys have healed and don't have burning stomachs ....all I can choke down is homemade gluten-free bread with a bit of ghee or some brown rice cereal with rice milk....maybe I will be able to eat things like chorizo and eggs and cheese once again...I still have a problem with fried anything!....sigh...ah well, you have given me some good ideas for down the road...good post!!

OOOooo YAY!!! Yes, Blue Diamond is the one I have, and am not drinking because it has soy lecithin...I got it off the shelf. I'll have to keep an eye out in the dairy section, Thanks!

Hemp protein powder (the only kind of protein powder that I tolerate), frozen raspberries and a bit of stevia powder to sweeten it. I blend it into a smoothie. Some mornings, I'll have a bit of leftover chicken breast if I'm still hungry after my smoothie.

I do the hemp protein powder (TJ's) in my smoothie too. I buy a bag of frozen mango slices from TJ's and do some of that, pop in some 24-hour yogurt, some almond/hemp milk and some berries (fresh or frozen) along with my probiotic powder, sometimes half a banana, and zappo, great breakfast! (I have my U.S. breakfasts and my NZ breakfasts :P )

If you eat dairy-free cheese, try ham on corn tortillas w/dairy free cheese. Corn tortilla roll ups with ham or hummus or some mushrooms or olives (or a combination) are good.

Gluten-free/egg-free bagels (like Udi's) are good w/margarine, jam & some nice hot tea to start off the day. Add an apple (fiber), a banana (potassium) or strawberries (vitamin C) as a nice side. Or soy yoghurt.

Cream of rice or cream of buckwheat or gluten-free oats (glutenfreeda carries single serving packets now) are all excellent with soy, rice or almond milk.

For a quick, if not necessarily heart-healthy grab & go, get some microwavable potato cakes (check if they're gluten-free, Ore-Ida's are the most consistently gluten-free I've found), a couple slices of pre-cooked canadian bacon (for more heart healthy, get low-salt, low fat ham) and a couple corn tortilla's. Microwave the potato cake and the bacon. Cut potato cake in half, put bacon on a tortilla, put half a potato cake in the middle, wrap it up. Do the same with the other. If you prefer the tortilla warm (corn tortillas don't have to be heated, but they keep their shape better if they are), throw them into the microwave for about 10 seconds. Wrap them in a paper towel. Grab an apple or a small box of raisins (for fiber). Grab your tea or coffee and go.

If you are near one, Trader Joe's carries brown rice tortillas which are excellent as sandwich wraps, but they require heating. Lunchmeat, lettuce, mayo and mustard in the middle of these make an excellent meal. Word of warning, they must be eaten right away -- the tortilla will slowly turn too hard to chew as they cool. So if you want to take them for lunch, you'll have to assemble them at work *after* microwaving the tortilla and then eat straight away.

Hi there,

Some simple breakfasts I've been living on for the last few months. I also can't tolerate the gluten-free cereals, they're either too contaminated, or they contain some grain that doesn't agree with me.

Cooked brown or white rice, and mixed with your own "granola" mix. eg. Shredded coconut, sultanas or raisins, and nuts. You can add a non-dairy liquid of your choice, but I just add some butter/ghee, sometimes I have it plain and it tastes great with the coconut flavour. Probably be really nice with some coconut milk.

If you can tolerate corn - get some gluten-free corn meal or polenta (Careful you get a gluten-free mix, apparently it sometimes isn't?). In a plastic bowl I mix 2 spoonfuls of meal with a cup of water, and cook it in a microwave for 2 minutes (3 minutes for polenta), stirring a few times while cooking. Mix with the "granola" mix above, or have it plain with a dusting of cinnamon. I usually have milk with this, but you could use a bit of ghee, coconut milk or rice milk. Turns into a really nice porridge :)

You can make Sorghum porridge in the same way (Unfortunately I haven't found a source that's completely gluten-free :/ ). You can also try cooking Quinoa, Millet or Buckwheat.

I have the same issues. No dairy, gluten, eggs unless mixed in something. I have been eating 1/2 a Udi bagel with dairy free margarine with some thick slices of tomato. First I toast the bagel then add the margarine and tomato, salt and pepper and put it under the toaster broiler. Yummy. I can't do peanut butter but almond butter seems ok. I do have a mixture of rice cereal (by Erewhon) and fruity pebbles.

Breakfast is also my hardest meal to come up with. I definitely couldn't do any kind of meat in the morning. I actually have a hard time with beef at anytime. I have grilled a piece of deli ham and had it on a toasted bagel - but that would be a late breakfast. I have had some smoked salmon or sardines on toast. Sometimes just some strawberries and grapes with So Delicious vanilla or plain yogurt is ok.

Is the dairy free because of lactose-intolerance?

I ask because some lactose-intolerant people do well with Greek Yogurt...I think some of the bacterias in yogurt make it easier to digest.

As for my breakfasts, I usually do either gluten free cereal or string cheese and fruit. Occasionally spoonfuls of peanut butter if I need a protein boost.

    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      About 30% of people have a gene for Celiac.  They don't all have it because only about 1% of the population has Celiac.   It is quite possible she has something else that is causing her trouble.  Sometimes eliminating gluten helps that problem, like FODMAPS.   If it were me, I would keep her strictly gluten-free for a year or so.  See if anything develops.  Then I would try her back on small doses of gluten.  If it is something like FODMAPS, she may be able to tolerate some gluten after a while.  I would do that for 3 months .  If she is having issues I would then get her tested with a full Celiac panel and, if positive, an endoscopy.  Even if the panel is negative, if she is having issues, I would pursue more testing, ends, colonoscopy, etc. For schools to take a gluten-free or any special diet seriously, you will need a doctors note.  I am assuming US might be different in other countries.
    • No actual diagnosis/genetic results.
      Hi- new here but have been reading a lot of posts (Long post, last two paragraphs have actual question)  my four year old daughter probably has celiac but I don't know if I'll ever get a definitive diagnosis at this point.    Backstory: growth Delays, GI issues and a few other symptoms as a baby/young toddler. Did not have blood work done but went straight to biopsy which was negative. Always still had suspicions that gluten bothered her.    Started developing more symptoms around 3, by 3.5 they were pretty bad and her dr recommend eliminating gluten. (Blood in stool, rashes, low grade fever, joint pain, stomach pain and bloating, behavior issues) Everything cleared up quickly! Yay. Still had occasional gluten because I was under the impression it was "just an intolerance" and her symptoms kept up/got worse with each exposure. (Developed vomitting as most recent symptom) So I wanted to know if it was celiac. Can't do blood or biopsy since she's been mostly off gluten for months by this time.  I really was hoping to have a concrete answer and diagnosis, So we did genetic testing recently. It came back positive for half of DQ2 (beta subunit). Her dr isn't giving her official diagnosis but says "she is at a fairly low risk" but with her symptoms doesn't that mean she has developed it??!   Either way he says to keep her off gluten but I don't understand why he won't diagnose? Right now I am just telling people (besides family) that she has it because it's too hard to explain it all but do you think an actual diagnosis would be beneficial in any way? Should I push the issue with her dr? 
    • Awaiting Biopsy Results
      Thanks for the advice and encouragement, Gemini. I appreciate having additional insight into my situation. Celiac being the cause of my health issues makes more and more sense the more I learn about it, and eliminating gluten sounds more and more like the right choice for me.
    • Did Jennifer Esposito Leave Town Amid $43 Million Gluten-Free Bakery Lawsuit?
      The topic of this forum is "Celiac Disease - Publications & Publicity," so certainly it fits in here, and in fact, this topic is designed specifically to handle any media coverage that relates to celiac disease and/or the gluten-free diet.

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
