We like the breads, bagels and donuts from kinnkinnick.

http://www.kinnikinnick.com/

I usually have toast w/peanut butter.

I hear the english muffins are good, too.

The only product I haven't liked was the cinnamon raisin bagels. Just not tasty.

If the price is scary, consider that one slice of toast with peanut butter is quite filling. I can't eat a whole donut, so I save half for the next morning. They're very dense. I usually make a whole bagel when one of my kids is willing to have half because they're too filling when you've got peanut butter on them. Also, with a bit of eggs it's filling. So the price isn't so bad when you consider that. Plus, if you order up to $200 worth of food from Kinnikinnick the shipping is a set $10. That's really good. I think the breads are great. They also have pizza crusts.

You can make a corn burrito with eggs/bacon/cheese. That will be filling.

I read here once that if you heat a corn tortilla with a little pat of butter on each side in a frying pan, that it will have a more four texture. It's true. That's the only way I eat them now.

What do you put in your smoothies?  and what kind of flour do you use for pancakes?

Thanks a million for you ideas

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>

I have a couple of recipes in the recipes section under "As Promised, A Few Recipes" for smoothies, but I'll put some of the basics here:

Standard Strawberry (2 cups frozen strawberries, 1 orange (or 1 cup orange juice), 1 cup soy milk, 1 banana, 1 svng rice protein powder)

Tangy Tropical (2 bananas, 2 cups frozen pineapple, 3 oranges, 2 cups soy milk, 1/2 cup coconut milk 1-2 tbsp ginger juice)

Pumpkin Smoothie (1 cup soy milk, 1/2 cup Silk Nog, 1/2 cup canned pumpkin, 1 banana, 1/4 tsp each cinnamon, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, ice cubes)

Smooth Blueberry (2 cups soy milk, 3 bananas, 3 cups frozen blueberries)

As for pancakes, I use a couple different recipes - the amaranth pancake recipe from the Bob's Red Mill website, or the Arrowhead Mills mix. I don't have a standard set, but I generally use whole grains (not white rice flour or potato or tapioca, and incorporating flax meal or soy flour or nut flour because I have hypoglycemic tendencies).

Put them on low with a lid on. The steam will cook the middles.

I usually have the same breakfast.....gluten-free toast with organic PB, tea with honey, and a piece of fruit.

olive oil (1-2 tablespoons)

veggies:

1 red + green pepper, 2 green onions, 1/2 yellow onion, cut up small

5 mushrooms cut up small

eggs - as many as you want lighty beaton with a fork

spices to taste

I just throw the veggies and mushrooms into a wok (a large frying pan would do) for like 5 minutes and then throw in the eggs and cook until the eggs are done. Quick, easy, and yummy! I kind of made this one up myself. This can be quick if the veggies and mushrooms are cut up the night before.

Tiffany - Those recipes look great! I'll have to try some. what brand of rice protein powder do you use?

I make homemade bread a lot. The GlutenFreePantry has easy banana bread and lemon poppy seed mixes. I just use egg replacer in place of the eggs and rice milk with a bit of lemon juice for the buttermilk. It's really easy and turns out great.(My husband even eats it.) Kinnikinik English Muffins or Tapioca Bread toasted are good, and Amazon cereals are good (although very sweet.) I also like plain rice krispies from Gluten Free Pantry.

Something else that's easy if you eat meat (my husband eats it, not me)is microwave bacon by Hormel.

I'm a frozen blueberries and yogurt kind of gal. I throw the blubes in a small container and take 'em to work. After a few hours, the blubes are defrosted just enough and have kept the tiny yogurt just cold enough.

Tiffany, or anyone,

Do you have any tips on making pancakes? I made some yesterday but even after about 20 attempts couldn't get them cooked in the middle.

Thanks,

Matilda

Huh... I generally don't have that problem. Most likely, your batter was too thick. Try thinning it a bit. (It's hard to describe how thin pancake batter should be, but it should pour - kinda like well mixed yogurt.)

:D Frozed blueberries are really good! Banana dipped in natural peanut butter is quick and easy for on the go. Also try a trail mix of peanuts and raisins and whatever finger food you want to add.

I, like a lot of celiacs, have a ravenous appetite. So, most of the time, I need something "thicker", so to speak, in the morning than fruit. I will make pancakes that aren't very sweet (like a flat bread) ahead of time to last for the week. I then will cook a Wellshire farm sausage (they also have chicken) morning breakfast patty in the microwave (about 1 min 30 seconds), tear a pancake in half and put the sausage in between. I usually add some of Annie's Natural ketchup. Mmmmm. Very satisfying and filling (though I am sure my cholesterol wouldn't do well with this meal every day).

Buckwheat gluten free waffles with peanut butter, jam, jelly or both.

I kept a large jar of mixed nuts, seeds, dried fruits on the shelf. As you made this up for yourself you can exclude anything that bothers you. The possibilites are endless. It is always ready for a snack or to add to dry gluten free cereals to make a delicious crunchy breakfast treat. If dairy is not a problem, it is great with some yogurt mixed into the cereal mix.. This mix is so good that friends and family have asked about it so I give it in containers to them at Christmas. I adapt it for diabetics and for personal preferences. It isn't low calorie but that is good for wispy celiacs. Also it is very filling so you don't eat a whole lot at a time. Once you make up a batch all you have to do is spoon it up! :lol:

For those mornings when I really have to grab something and go I like the glutino (sp) bars (think nutragrain bars). They come in three flavors apple, blueberry and chocolate. I have never tried the chocolate, another post said it was gross. But I like the other flavors. Very quick.

Hi there! Here are my tips for breakfast.

VERY FAST and Cheap:

Cereal: Fruity Pebbles or Cocoa Pebbles

Fruit w/OJ

Scrambled egg w/pre-cooked bacon

Very fast and not-so-cheap:

Kinnikinick bagels w/cream cheese or Peanut Butter

Kinnik toast/cinnimon toast

Ener-G granola cereal

Other ideas:

French toast (w/kinnik bread)

Of course, there are others, but this is what I eat on a regular basis.

Hope this helps! -Julie :)

hey everybody, Wegmans has finally started labeling all of there products and it has decreased the time that it took me to shop for my girlfriend. It has been great the wegmans brand products have been labled with a "G" with an orange circle around it are gluten free. Even though they have a small area for special products there are more. Check out the breakfasts or go to www.wegmans.com and look at there gluten free listing. It has been a life saver.

I was following up on this post, seeing what other suggestions I could grab from it :-), when I realized, matilda, that I forgot one other possibility - heat! Is your skillet the right temperature? It should be heated to the point that a drop of water on it will just barely jump and skitter around the pan - no cooler, no hotter (we use the water test regularly, just a drop or two, and wait for it to evaporate off). It should be *just* kept at that temperature, and not go over. And then waiting for the bottom of the pancakes to cook sufficiently is important too - the edges of the top side of the pancake should be setting enough to make flipping not messy at all.

    • Celiac Night Vision
      Hi - remember speaking to you before!  Thanks for the update.  I had painful headaches which got worse and worse as I went into my twenties.  They became auras - kind of silver grey paisley pattern - without pain just before I had my first child, at a time when I started to experience hypnopompic hallucinations ( seeing repeat patterns for a few split seconds on waking in a light room -  hated it at first but apparently even 'normal' people can get them!!!  They were really scary at first but reading about them on the net has help diffuse that fear).   Repeat MRIs unremarkable.  Then three years ago I was quite separately diagnosed with coeliac disease.  Keeping off gluten religiously I hardly ever get headaches any more; still on occasion get hypnopomic halluciations but try not to be bothered by them now -  still get an aura maybe once a year?  In the last two years I have had a couple of scintillating scotomas - very pretty.   Lots of gorgeous sparkling lights. In the centre of my vision.  Only in bright light when I look at something white.   So tiny I might have had more but not noticed.  Much tinier than in this pic. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scintillating_scotoma#/media/File:ScintillatingScotoma3.jpg Reading the above post they say that MSG may contribute?  Not sure.  I had my first in Minehead last April.  My second just after Christmas.  Can't recall what I ate! My own take on all of this is that once one has a diagnosis of visual migraines one can almost expect anything!  
    • Anxiously waiting
      Hi all. Ive just had my blood test results which showed a high level for coeliacs,originally i went to doctor coz my bowel movements had changed and haven't been normal for over a month and i am very tired,the tiredness i assumed was low iron and my tummy/bowel issues well i thought IBS Maybe or a bug as ive not really had issues before,anyway she has put me on a wait list to have a endoscopy done. Im so so confused as i didn't expect i may be coeliac,my symptoms come and go so on a day im good i think sweet my issues are resolved but then they come back so they are not consistent which makes me wonder if it is coeliac or not,but my tiredness,headaches,shortness of breath,tummy gurgling,different bowel movements,feeling nauseous are all symptoms that come at different times. The test i had was for gliadin IgG which was 20 but should be 7 or lower, i guess im just anxious to wait who knows how long for the endoscopy coz i would like to try and cut out gluten but the dr said not to till the procedure is done. P.s im in australia so not sure if things are different here.
    • Celiac Night Vision
      Scotomas returned for the 7th year on the 24th February despite liver pâté and have varied since with 3 brief gaps. I have always had migraine, latterly occurring more than once a month, usually of basilar or retinal type with aura (but no headache) lasting less than 5 minutes. A recent bout looked like a TIA and led to a CT scan which revealed clear major vessels but old cerebellar infarcts, so maybe migraine accounts for poor memory too. The scotomas are very different from migraine eye symptoms - stationary, irregular in shape and lasting hours. I think food is excluded as the cause but seasonality, gaps, variation with wind direction and rain mean that pollen is still a possibility. Scott Adams did a marvellous thing founding this site so celiacs could enlighten each other. Please post if you have anything like these scotomas!
    • healthy bread recipe?
      Eat what you eat at lunch or dinner.  I am happy with a fried hamburger patty, fish, or chicken (I know it needs to be fresh or frozen for the histamine diet).  Yes, I eat veggies for breakfast!   Wanted to add that I was glutened in July (GI ordered follow-up antibodies testing and it was high)  and it took me 3 months to recover.  Picked up a histamine intolerance and became lactose intolerant again.  Luckily, when I healed, the histamine thing went away (or  Diminished ) and the lactose intolerance resolved.    I was getting hives, rashes and itching (not DH), vomiting, etc.  So, her intolerances may be just temorary!  
    • Could this be celiac or is it really just IBS?
      Are you sure you had the complete celiac panel?  Here are the tests:   -Tissue Transglutaminase (tTG) IgA and (tTG) IgG -Deamidated Gliadin Peptide (DGP) IgA and (DGP) IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test)     -endoscopic biopsy - make sure at least 6 samples are taken   VERY IMPORTANT:  Keep eating gluten daily until ALL testing is complete or the tests can be inaccurate.     (Source: NVSMOM -- 😊)   Here is more information from a reputable site (and not just info from a crazy cyclist on the Internet!):   http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/   IBS, in my opinion, means "I Be Stumped!"  It is just a cop out!  So is the "stressed" thing.     I also had my GB out too.   It was a non-functioning (0% per HIDA scan), no stones, and rotting.     You seem to have many celiac disease symptoms.  Verify (obtain copies of your lab tests) to see if you got the complete panel. You might just have had the TTG IGA and TTG IGG tests.  Good for screening but it does not catch all celiacs.  My TTG tests are always negative even on follow-up testing.  The DGP test catches a positive for me.  My biopsies revealed moderate to severe damage.  If my celiac-savvy GI did not order the complete panel, my celiac disease diagnosis would never have been caught.   if celiac disease is really ruled out, research mast cell disorders.  The flushing and GI upset sound familiar!  You can have more than one thing going on!  But I would put my money on celiac disease!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
