Need Help With Breakfast!

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.

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.

      You sure did nail it! I was too worried it was MS or Lupus or Celiac to be able to really give that option a chance. If anything my guess was low b12. The only obvious things in my diet are Vitamin water and protein bars. If you look at food it's in practically everything in pretty high doses. Going gluten-free uncovered this or made it start. MTHFR gene maybe? Magnesium too low? I haven't taken my multi & am looking up everything I'm eating. Still having the twitches but not near as much in my calves and feet. My arch pain is gone & energy is up a bit. Still twitching though and had some arm and shoulder pain overnight. I read it can be 6 months or longer for nerves to heal.
    • How the gluten-free diet can cause new heartburn / GERD: sodium acid pyrophosphate
      I never really had much heartburn before my diagnosis of Celiac and consequent dietary changes. But since then, I have discovered Udis, Van's, Canyon Bakehouse, and many other gluten-free brands. About a year ago I began eating 2 waffles every day, 7 days a week with my breakfast. The waffles I was eating were Nature's Path and Van's, both which use very high amounts of sodium acid pyrophosphate. The waffles are mostly air and carbs. Within a few weeks I began to develop recurrent, very painful heartburn that would popup constantly. My tolerance for acidic foods declined--whereas previously it would take much more acidic foods to cause heartburn, now any amount, no matter how small, would cause heartburn. And it kept getting worse with each month to the point that I began to worry about my health. I developed GERD that wouldn't go away for 24 hours after eating an offending food. The offending foods list kept growing bigger and bigger to the point that almost anything would cause heartburn and some degree of GERD. So I eliminated almost all foods containing sodium acid pyrophosphate and the heartburn and GERD stopped. I can eat tomato-based foods again with either no discomfort or 5% of the discomfort I used to experience, and I can eat foods on the offending food list again with no heartburn at all. Despite searching the internet for hours for an answer to what was causing my heartburn and GERD, I found nothing definitive and had to figure it out on my own. Did you know there is absolutely nothing at all anywhere on the internet connecting sodium acid pyrophosphate with hearburn? To my knowledge this will be the first ever post on the topic on the entire internet. Either that, or both Google and DuckDuckGo are suppressing the information. Also, did you know that sodium acid pyrophosphate is an ingredient found in almost all aluminum-free baking powder? That's what I get for trying to eliminate aluminum! I am making the switch to single-action aluminum-free baking powder soon--single-action doesn't have this ingredient, but it's less convenient to use unfortunately. I'm interested to hear if it causes anyone else heartburn as well. I'm glad to be heartburn-free and comfortable for the first time in a year.
    • Do this, scientists! (experiment to confirm/deny the existence of "leaky gut")
      Leaky gut is a condition that we have little knowledge of.  The symptoms this condition could cause are not agreed upon. Some health practitioners say it could cause "wide range of long term conditions [1], like chronic fatigue syndrome and Multiple Sclerosis. The possible cause list NHS gives is much more accurate: inflammatory bowel diseases – such as Crohn's disease infections of the intestines – such as salmonella, norovirus andgiardiasis  coeliac disease  chemotherapy medicines chronic kidney disease   radiotherapy to the abdomen (tummy) immunosuppressants (medicines that weaken the immune system) HIV/AIDS  cystic fibrosis   type 1 diabetes sepsis complicated surgery As you can see, the list includes a lot gastrointestinal conditions. Gut becomes "leaky", letting too big particles into blood system, and possibly these particles act as poison (because they are not  supposed to be in the blood, thus the possible bad effects). Now, to confirm this disease, I was amazed that this test hadn't been done before:
      Feed the supposed "leaky gut" patients (e.g. celiacs with damaged bowel) with IV fluids. Because these fluids go directly into the blood stream, and the particles are "elemental" (glucose, vitamins, amino acids... all supposed to be in the blood stream anyway), they shouldn't cause any symptoms. If they notice improvement, the problem is in the digestive system (I'm also including stomach). If not, such condition as "leaky gut" doesn't exist. Rather the problem is how the body reacts to the "elemental" particles. E.g the most common explanation would be diabetes (the IV fluids just caused elevated glucose levels), that also should be tested. Also the "candida theory", because its proponents say the candida is in the WHOLE body, including the blood stream. To eliminate this, patients should take anticandida meds, then again go on IV fluids, and if they NOW get better, it was candida. If not candida, and not diabetes, nor allergies, we have a new condition we aren't even aware of (body reacting to elementary particles with no obvious reason). However, if the patients DO get better, the problem IS in the gut. Now, it could be celiac disease, and the improvement could have been due to eliminating gluten from the diet (because IV doesn't contain gluten). The question remains that did the bowel actually leak any particles? (not just gluten causing autoimmune reactions and malnutrition, and explaining all the  300 symptoms).  Or the patients just get better due to NOW acquiring all the necessary nutrients.  To eliminate these possibilities, they should feed the patients with gluten-free food (or even better, with elemental diet, because it could also be lack of digestive enzymes or something else). If they get worse, the problem is STILL in the gut, and thus the "leaky gut" exists. If not, "leaky gut" is probably a non-existent condition.
    • So Hershey's Miniatures Aren't Gluten Free?
      I am really ill just now - 20 minutes after eating 2 Hersheys Milk Chocolate Miniatures - checked on the Hersheys site and the milk choc. minis are NOT included on their list of gluten-free products -and no, I am not sensitive to dairy, so that's not it.  NO MORE for me... it is not the "end to a perfect day" but it isn't fun.
    • Candida test
      I noticed after I posted this that there are some topics about this posted before.  There is a search function above.  But, if anyone has anything new to post that would be appreciated.
