Greek yogurt with fruit most days. Pancakes with sausage sometimes on the weekend.

I had 2 slices of gluten-free toast this morning, but that was rare.

Now that I am pregnant, I eat a bowl of Udi's cranberry granola, I split an Udi's bagel with butter and strawberry with my son, and I have a cup of coffee. I also have been known to add a string cheese to the equation :)

Before that it was usually yogurt, orange juice, and toast and butter (Udi's toast).

Hi Plumbago!

I totally agree with that Russian saying... :-)

Let me preface my breakfast comments with a brief history - so you'll know where I'm coming from. Growing up, I was not a breakfast eater. Looking back, I think it was because most mornings we were rushed to get to school & such, so breakfast was just a load of gluten. Cereals, toast & such...I didn't connect it back then, but it made me feel worse to eat. So, I just skipped breakfast & starved til lunch. :rolleyes:

Since I've been gluten-free, I've become a breakfast monster. I cannot stand to miss it & will feel worse if I do. I love eating a humongous breakfast, a lighter lunch (but still substantial) & then a light dinner.

Some of the favorites of our family are:

Smoothies made with homemade kefir, frozen fruit, egg yolks, maca powder, coconut milk & chia seeds

Julia Child's omelets - she inspired my 14 year old daughter to get up early & make breakfast almost every morning. I was shocked. :) So, we, uhh I mean my daughter, makes the traditional omelettes with various fillings - many times from leftover meats & veggies - spinach & other greens, ground beef, potatoes, cheese,etc...whatever we have on hand, actually. Also, we esp. like the stacked omelette - yummy & a great make ahead dish. It reheats beautifully.

Eggs in many forms - we have to change it around a bit, because we get tired of the same types of eggs over & over

Scones & biscuits with eggs & sausage or beef bacon

Sausage & gravy is a fav with the kids, but we don't eat that regularly.

Kids would love pancakes & waffles every week - but I try to avoid a lot of sugar, so we only make them occasionally.
Although, we do eat fruit with most of the above options as well.

We also drink lots of fresh organic milk that's fed only grass & hay - no grain - & it works well for us, except for my son. He does better on fresh goat milk.

If it were up to just me & hubby, we would have a huge smoothie each morning with an occasional deviation. Smoothies are my absolute fav - quick, easy & yummy. My kids, however, prefer other breakfast options.

Great topic!! I'll be very interested to see what other folks eat for breakfast.

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!

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.)

I use Pocono. It is grown in dedicated fields, harvested with dedicated equipment and processed in a plant that only processes buckwheat. No chance of CC at all with them. A bonus for me is that it is grown and processed not far from where I live so I go and buy huge bags of the hulls every spring for buckwheat pillows and mulch.

Plumbago,

Its usually Chex cereal w/milk or yogurt during the week. I'm a mother of 2 teenagers and work a full time job so I do not have alot of time in the mornings. On the weekends, I'll go for eggs. I know its hard but reading some of the responces, there are some great ideas that I'm going to start trying! Thanks to everyone! Tammy

Most mornings I eat 2% Greek yogurt with slightly thawed frozen raspberries and a small handful of nuts. On weekends I like to make egg sandwiches. Just fried egg with white cheddar and jelly on Udi's toast. Sometimes I make pancakes. Another favorite is Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal cooked with blueberries, stevia, and pecans.

My usual every day breakfast . . . scrambled Eggbeaters or egg whites, a slice or two of deli smoked turkey and a piece of low-fat cheese between two corn tortillas heated in the microwave. It's high protein, has calcium, is low fat, low calorie and low carb. It also keeps me full until noon. Posted Image

Thanks so much for sharing this info! I've had reactions to buckwheat before & would love to use buckwheat again. :)

My fave right now had been a rice cake smeared with hazelnut butter! MMMM--and lots of coffee. If I am home I will make omelets or scrambled eggs--maybe a fritatta.
I am thankful that I keep chickens so I have PLENTY of great eggs for breakfast or dinner (or lunch--if I do lunch that day!) Terri O

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.
