I thought I'd just go ahead and go for it, though probably the topic has been started a million times.

What does everyone eat for breakfast?

I am getting concerned that my morning meal might just have too much sugar. I eat lots of fruit, have a pancake and some tea. Of course I have syrup on that pancake. Oh, and often I have chicken sausage, a small amount.

Just curious what everyone else chows down on. Important for me is to feel full. When I read, pre-celiac disease diagnosis days, about people's breakfasts, I couldn't believe how paltry they sounded.

Someone recently told me a Russian saying: eat breakfast for yourself; share lunch with a friend; give dinner to your enemy.

Thanks everyone!

My breakfast of choice is Rice Chex and a banana, but I've always been a cereal girl!

I used to be a big cereal eater for breakfast. When I first went gluten-free (only a month ago) I was STARVING in the mornings. I read a lot (mainly on this site) about how you feel more hungry at first, and also about how wheat affects your body with cravings, and I've tried to keep that in mind when I'm hungry! And, as time has passed, my usual morning hunger patterns have changed to be less intense.

Fruit & a protein - bananas and raw nuts like pecans and cashews, apples & peanut butter, raw pumpkin seeds, pineapple & cheese, yogurt & gluten-free granolas, raisins, dried apricots, craisins. Some people stop dairy for about 6 months, but I haven't had any problem with it.

There's also veggies, like raw baby carrots, sugar snap peas, other leftover cooked veggies, leftover meats, gluten-free deli ham & turkey.

If you are an egg eater, I know that is a good thing to eat.

Coffee w/milk, good quality juices with added calcium & Vit D, water

By the time I get finished munching on all that stuff, it's nearly time for lunch! :rolleyes:

Cream of buckwheat cereal with a generous amount of cinnamon is one of my favorites. A single serving is even often too much but my little dog will scarf up whatever is left over. Scrambled eggs, a couple slices of toast and some fruit or if I am in a hurry peanut butter toast are my among staples. If I have left over pizza from the night before that is for sure what I have the next morning.

Protein is supposed to curb hunger/make you feel full. When I was trying to lose weight, I made sure to eat some protein with every meal so that I wouldn't have the munchies all day, and it seems to work.

I found a few vegan, gluten-free protein powders too that I am going to try when I cut gluten. I put protein powder, rice milk, bananas and frozen berries in a smoothie. I also put in soy yogurt or coconut yogurt because I'm vegan, but if you eat dairy, you could just use regular yogurt. Or you could do peanut butter smoothies if you're allowed to eat peanuts. That's extra protein.

Can you eat potatoes? Fried potatoes (hash browns, cottage fries, whatever) are filling. And yummy! ;)

May I ask what brand of cream of buckwheat cereal you buy? Is it a hot cereal (I like hot cereals). I used to eat McCan's oatmeal, pre-diagnosis of course, and it was DEEE licous. (Anything approximating that would be good.)

Yes, I can eat potatoes! And that is a very good suggestion. I could either cut up a bunch to have them ready each morning, or I could go ahead and cook them ahead of time and just re-heat. Along w/ the sausage and eggs, I believe that would constitute a filling breakfast.

Thanks!

Protien is a must for me. It helps me keep from feeling hungry too fast.

For protien I will usually have 'fried'-- sometimes I will add cheese -- or hardboiled egg. Sometimes maybe a couple sausage links, or maybe yogurt or cottage cheese.

Cereal- wise, I go for either one of Bob's Red Mill's certified gluten-free cereals (oatmeal/ steel cut oats/ buckwheat/ quinoa) with a packet of Sun Crystals or Truvia in it. Will have to remember to try adding cinnamon next time(and see if I don't have problems w/ it)!
Sometime I will have Corn or cinnamon Chex, or one of the Envirokids' cereals (like Panda Puffs).

I have problems w/ fructose, so can't have much or any in the way of fruits, honey, agave nectar, maple, Splenda, HFCS, onion/ tomato, and anything that has brown rice in it (which a lot fo gluten-free products, including cereals, do).

When I eat it, it is boiled eggs, scrambled eggs and fruit. I try to eat as whole foods/ grain free as possible.

My latest breakfasts are smoothies. I put the following in a blender. Yogurt (vanilla or something I like) banana, strawberries or any other fruit I like (Kiwi, blueberries etc.) Then a good handful of spinach. If you use bananas you don't taste the spinach at all and it helps with staying full. Blend - and it's yummy. (My kids haven't figured out why it's green yet!) I drink on the way to work.

I'm not a gluten-free cereal fan. At all. The cereals taste like air and do not fill me. I do sometimes have Gluten Freeda banana oatmeal.

As I am a big breakfast eater, mushroom, gruyere (or goat cheese) and scallion omelette with fresh fruit salad drizzled with a touch of honey and freshly-squeezed lime juice and poppyseeds is my latest favourite. I also like scrambled eggs with a touch of bacon. Or homemade gluten-free French toast drizzled with a butter rum syrup. In the summer I'll likely have lots of smoothies (to which I will add flaxmeal). A few scone recipes are actually ok - I love them with lavender-infused honey or my lavender jelly or other preserves.

1. Buckwheat/kasha with soy milk, almonds, berries or dried fruit. Maybe cinnamon and real maple syrup, maybe not. I'll use leftover rice or quinoa instead of the buckwheat if it needs eaten.

2. Pumpkin waffles (homemade & frozen) with nut butter. maybe fruit, maybe not.

3. Apples and peanut butter, with soymilk hot chocolate. Top it off with a few crackers, if they're handy.

4. Leftover soup. Honestly, I really like it and find it very satisfying. Bean or lentils are especially good, and it's extra credit if you get/make something with lots of vegetables in it.

5. Baked beans (desperation straight out of a can but enjoyed). Usually with some leftover rice or potato, but sometimes not even that.

6. Black beans on sweet potato.

7. Leftover frittata. Usually a green, sometimes potato, baked omelette deal.

8. Eggs occasionally otherwise, but generally only on days I'm not going to work.

2/2010 Malabsorption becomes dramatically noticable
3/2010 Negative IgA EMA; negative IgA TTG
4/2010 Negative biopsy
5/2010 Elimination diet; symptoms begin to resolve on gluten-free diet round two (10 days)
5/2010 Diagnosed gluten sensitive based on weakly positive repeat IgA & IgG TTGs and dietary response; decline capsule endoscopy.

Now, what to do about my cookbook in progress? Make it gluten-free?

Come on over! I'll also set out homemade compound butters for your scones and pancakes. :P

I forgot - asparagus frittata is also lovely for breakfast, as is quiche - even gluten-free. :)
