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.

Started on this journey w/ my 9 yr old son after a bout w/ the flu in the fall of 2009.
2 neg celiac blood tests, mine was also neg. No endo done. Son had x-ray, showing severe constipation. Son has latex allergy. KP for both of us.
Long family history of bowel problems, auto-immune and all sorts of cancers. My G-mother informed me that she was put on a gluten free diet after she had my mom (1950's), of course she stopped when she felt better. She has had problems ever since I can remember.
So here we are! I do have my son's Dr to thank for even bringing up celiac! Thank You Dr.B!
My adult daughter also has been helped by eating gluten-free.

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.

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).
