What Does Everyone Eat For Breakfast?
0

37 posts in this topic

I'm not the one with the gluten issues. But I don't usually eat a big breakfast. Today I had cottage cheese and toast. Sometimes I had cereal. Yesterday I had an upset stomach so just plain rice. Sometimes I have polenta with tomato sauce.

Daughter is the one with gluten issues. She doesn't much like breakfast. Lately she has been eating apples and carrots. Once in a while I'll make bacon and we'll both have that.

Monday - Friday it's a quick bowl of Chex with 2% milk. And coffee of course (with Truvia).

Weekends might be either buttered toasted Udi's bread, or toasted Udi's bagel, with jam or agave syrup. And perhaps eggs & bacon. Or breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and homemade salsa.

best regards, lm

I had to leave dairy and eggs so that limited my breakfasts.

Lately it's these cookies for breakfast or you could call em grainless granola bars if ya want. ;)

It is just perfect to grab two big cookies and a cup of coffee and head out the door.

If you can have nuts that is.

Nutty Cookies (Adapted from Elana's Pantry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe)

1 cup Grapeseed oil

1 cup Agave syrup

1 T. Vanilla

5 cups Almond flour

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Baking soda

Bunch of Walnuts

Bunch of Cashews

I add as many walnuts and cashews as the batter will hold. I mound them up on a cookie sheet and bake until done. 325 bout 10-12 min.

Hmm I might try baking them as a bar. Never thought of it til now.

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 do spinach smoothies too! When I give it to my little ones, I call it swamp juice (think Shrek) and they love it. (It's all in the name -- broccoli is called dinosaur trees at my house.) They love peanut butter smoothies too: peanut butter, bananas, rice (or soy) milk, vanilla yogurt, ice cubes and a little Stevia or agave nectar. Don't put in too much peanut butter though or it will be too... peanut buttery.

I'd like to thank everyone for responding. There are some fantastic ideas here, especially those I can make ahead. I will come back to this again and again.

I have to eat breakfast every day or I starve until lunch. I eat 2 eggs, whisked together in a bowl and then nuked in one of those egg poacher-style containers. Usually I add some lean ham (pre-cooked) and mustard on gluten-free, dairy-free bread. That gives me protein, fat, and carbs. I find with the combo, I easily stay full until lunch.

What I like to call "breakfast rice". I hate rice pudding as a dessert, but I often make a form of it for breakfast. Take leftover rice. Mix in milk and/or yogurt of choice. Add cinnamon, dried fruit, nuts. I often make up a big batch at the beginning of the week and put a serving in a small container and eat it when I get to work. Works great with quinoa too. You can also mix in flax or chia meal if you want extra fibre (if you're like me and C is your problem and not D!)

Crustless mini quiches are pretty easy to make and you can pop a couple out every day to heat up.  I don't have a recipe on hand, but easy to find online.

Eggs, nearly every morning. 

 

I sometimes make buckwheat banana pancakes with apple cider instead of milk or water. Soooo good.

 

Scrambled eggs with onion is standard. Sometimes I melt Daiya in them (cheese substitute), sometimes hot sauce, sometimes ketchup, sometimes mushrooms, peppers and/or tomato (I would have tomato more but partner hates it), curry them sometimes with ground and fresh coriander and cumin. Fried in olive oil or coconut oil or leftover grease from some meat I've had recently. 

 

I would eat bacon regularly but since I moved and I cannot find a source of it where the preservatives in it don't give me a rash. I recently found some gluten-free turkey sausages at Costco; 2 boxes were gone in less than a week and no itchy rash!

This morning I ate the last piece of chess pie (gluten-free crust, of course) with a cup of coffee. Monday, it's back to the gym!

    • WOW.  That looks eerily familiar.  Last December the temporary provider here at my local (rural) clinic gave me doxycycline to experiment with, but it was a mere ten milligrams.  Lol, no wonder it didn't help!  I'm glad you're feeling better.
    • I got cross contaminated some time ago & the rash came back pretty badly. I've attached a photo taken on June 11th of my back. It was also in my scalp, around my neck, on my front, shoulders, inner wrists and more.   Tonight I am not itching at all! I haven't itched all day long!!!! I can't take Dapsone because I'm allergic to sulfa drugs & Dapsone is a sulfa drug. Obviously that means I also can't take any of the other sulfa drugs that are used to treat dh after Dapsone is not an option. After those comes tetracycline. I really needed some relief! I began researching the dosage & particulars on tetracycline for dh. Extensive & exhaustive research did not pan out. The best I could find was treating Bullous phemphigoid. That said something like 500mg of tetracycline 4 times per day and about an equal amount of niacinimide. I really didn't want to take that much medication and in such strong doses. So my doctor (my PC doc) & I began experimenting. We tried Doxycycline 100mg twice a day. It seemed to be helping some but it just wasn't enough. Then we upped it to 200mg Doxycycline twice per day. It has taken about 5 days of that & I sit here not itching all day for the first time in a long, long time! This may not work for everyone. I did want to post it though as it is, at present, working for me. I am not thrilled at taking it but I have toughed this rash out before for years with no meds and I just couldn't do it again.
    • I laughed out loud at the 'little notebook' comment!😂 It has been interesting to see how much progress has actually been made over the past 10 years that there is even a notebook to be offered or a restaurant to eat in that will accommodate our 'allergy'. 10 years ago I feared that I would never eat in a restaurant again.  But the notebook comment is spot on.  Hopefully within the next 10 years restaurants will evolve enough to offer us a menu that clearly lists the delicious and extensive offerings that they have lovingly prepared just for us...and not just an ingredient list with nutritional values that take longer to read than War and Peace.   I am grateful that there are places to go that at least make the effort.  Who knows?  Eventually there may be restaurants which will have to offer menus with GLUTEN options available!
    • Thanks for posting this Adrien, it's a great list and I and others will appreciate the effort and the thought behind it. I loved my time in Malaysia and I'm glad I sampled all the food I could whilst I was still on an unrestricted diet. The good thing is that, like you say, some of the nice Malay foods are still ok. As a backpacker I survived on a lot of nasi goreng and laksa, nice to think if I return there I could still do the same Terima kasih!
    • I have posted on here before. DQ2, brother with celiac, DGP iGA was the only mildly elevated test. Was gluten-free so did 6 week challenge last winter. Negative biopsy. I am gluten-free now but do go out to eat. Prior to the challenge my health was good. Since then I have: Chest pain, pain between shoulder blades, periods of shortness of breath, heart palpitations, one instance of a heart arrythmia episode, neck is tender to touch on one side (they kept saying sinuses or TMJ which my dentist vetoed) ear ache, bowels never sink. Numbness and tingling. Blood pressure variations. Could be doing chores and feel dizzy and it might be 84/52.  not super low, but not typical for me if I'm running around the house.While other days I am mildly hypertensive. Recently lost 5 lbs in 8 days without trying. Recently electrolytes were low, alkaline phosphatese was low. Ferritin started dropping so started liquid iron 2-3 times per day 4 months ago. Primary watching that, I am not anemic but we are nowhere near iron overload either.  GI doc was a dick. Did not even know DGP replaced older tests and he was very condescending When I begged him for help recently and told me to get a second opinion which is exactly what I plan on doing.  I now have pain in my upper GI area. It is tender to touch. I had my gallbladder out in 97 along with a stone and infection in my bile duct. It hurts in this area. Pancreatic enzymes look fine, liver enzymes fine. Pancreatic ultrasound fine. I will now be doing a EUS Soon to look at bile duct, pancreas and liver.   so a typical day for me is that I might feel fine for a while and then suddenly feel like I'm going to pass out. really dizzy, numbness in odd places, like my body has been hijacked. I will typically eat a bunch of food something high protein and in about an hour or so I start to feel better. However, then my upper stomach starts to hurt in place of the passing out feeling. blood sugars are also normal. After getting the " it must be panic attacks" and condescending looks a million times my primary finally ordered an ultrasound of my sore neck and there is an abnormality in my thyroid which she says looks like possibly Hashti's. Except for one time, all my serum TSH tests were normal. We have more blood work on Monday. As I have not put on any weight and there are other symptoms that are closer to Graves.  Has anyone else had any thyroid issues that followed doing a gluten challenge?  where is your stomach pain? Do you have it above or below your belly button? Mine feels like it's in the pancreas area, like 2-3 inches above the belly button and when I push on it it's tender, but not all the time. sometimes i feel it in my back.
