Cream Of Wheat Replacement
0

13 posts in this topic

I really want a to have a hot breakfast cereal but since I can't have cream of wheat any more I need to find a replacement. Has any one used cream of rice to replace cream of wheat? I'm looking for something that has a similar texture as cream of wheat. I never liked oatmeal because of the texture.

I was never fond of Cream of Wheat but do like Cream of Rice and think the texture is probably similar. Some people also eat Pocono Cream of Buckwheat but I haven't seen it around here.

I get the Pocono Cream of Buckwheat. I really like it when I want something warm and soothing, especially if I have been glutened.

I eat the cream of rice. It cooks up pretty quickly, and I like the texture. The one I have is cream of brown rice.

I haven't tried the cream of rice but have tried the Pocono cream of buckwheat & find it to be very similar to cream of wheat. If you use sweetener & milk it's like cream of wheat but if you use salt & butter it's like grits.

I eat the Bob's Redmill Mighty Tasty gluten-free Hot Cereal (I buy it at Whole Foods or Kroger) - I add some vanilla almond milk and a touch of sugar to it, and it's a VERY good replacement for Cream of Wheat. I actually think I like it better than cream of wheat. You can add all kinds of stuff to it...maple syrup, cinnamon, fruit, etc. Directions on the package makes a large batch - I normally either make the large batch and reheat over the next few days for breakfast, or just cut the recipe down to make just enough for one day.

Thank you for all the suggestions! I'll have to go shopping tommorow.

I eat this too. I have also tried out the savory recipes on the box and they were good also.

By the way, the Bob's Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal can also be substituted for cornmeal when making corn muffins, if you like a sandier texture (which I do). And it is mighty tasty as a hot cereal, especially with butter and brown sugar. But for texture, Cream of Rice is closest to Cream of Wheat, but I'm not sure I'd trust Nabisco's Cream of Rice not to be cross-contaminated with other things they make.

Try cream of buckwheat. It tastes kinda funky to me, but my son (Gluten-free Casein-free diet) loves it.

You could try polenta. The texture is a little softer that grits. I live it with a little pure maple.

cream of rice, millet grits (bob's red mill).

oatmeal can be made in many, many different textures. steel cut oats are a more similar texture to cream of wheat (I'd think?), and quick cook oats are the ... softest? least textured? something like that. rolled oats are in between.

There are some threads about grit recipes on the forum somewhere. Grits with olive oil, salt and pepper or oats with the same, vs. sugary stuff.

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
