gluten-free Cereals?
0

13 posts in this topic

I love cereal for breakfast, snack, etc. I buy chex but they are either too sugary or too plain...not much nutritional value. I sometimes eat Glutenfreeda oatmeal or Udi's gluten-free granola but it's expensive and not always what I want in true morning.

So what are some nutritional gluten free cereals that I can find in my local whole foods or in the gluten-free grocery aisle of my grocery store?

I haven't found any cereal that is super nutritious, but in our house besides the Chex cereals we also buy Kix, Berry Berry Kix, Dora the Explorer and the Kellogs Gluten Free Rice Krispies.

My girls do have their cereal with a smoothie alot of morning...for the four of us we use 4 frozen bananas, 1/2 cup of peanut butter, little bit of chocolate syrup and about 2 cups of milk (we use almond)...it's 14 g of protein and around 450 calories.

I put chopped nuts and sliced banana on my cereal. How about nuts or dried fruit? Trail mix? Granola? raisins, dates, craisins, almonds, walnuts, peanuts...

We always buy Mesa Sunrise. I like it very much, it's about as healthy as breakfast cereal can be I guess.

I love Whole O's made by Nature's Path. They taste just like Cheerios, but they don't get soggy as fast. Pile some fresh fruit on top (blueberries are my favorite)to increase nutrition.

Bob really likes the Mesa Sunrise from Nature's Path, but he doesn't like the price. I still buy it for him every once in a while as a treat. When I do we usually pour it into a big covered container and mix it with something cheaper like puffed brown rice then add nuts, seed and dried fruit. For cold cereal he often eats Chex or puffed brown rice or a mixture of the two. Sometimes I make him hot cereal -- brown rice with raisins and cinnamon, buckwheat groats, quinoa flakes, millet, etc. Bob's Red Mill also makes a gluten-free multigrain hot cereal.

I wasn't a big cereal eater before going gluten free so it's not a big deal to me, but I do help Bob with his cereal from time to time.

You can get the Mesa Sunrise in the big bags on the bottom shelf and wait for a sale, I like doing that. There's usually coupons to be found for Nature's Path products, too.

Envirokids PB Panda Puffs - I don't like the other Envirokids cereals.

Jessica's Gluten Free Granola at Whole Foods, delicious. Try the Pecan-Almond.

I make a trail mix like this using either a gluten-free granola or chex, with nuts and dried fruit, the glue is honey and peanut butter melted together. I sometimes eat it as a granola bar, or just chunky trail mix or put it on ice cream....and no, I'm not opposed to ice cream for breakfast sometimes!! 😜

    • Push for the endoscopy.  My GI said at the initial consult that he didn't think I had celiac but wanted to do the scope to "rule it out"  When he saw me immediately after the endo, while I was still in recovery, he saw enough damage to change his position and sure enough the biopsy came back positive.
    • Your body has been used to ingesting and has been coping with the gluten in its systems.  DON'T PANIC because your body is doing it for you.   Seriously now, the medical field has a technological term defining when a system is used to working a certain way/routine.  When that is either disrupted or changed, it could take a while for the body adjust to a different way of doing things.  Another factor in the increase in symptoms could possibly be that your body is starting to "clean house".  It's trying to get rid of the amounts of gluten hiding out in all its nooks and crannies.  It is going to be a long term process.  It's like cleaning out a vacuum hose or other household item that is just caked with gunk.  The first cleaning gets rid of a large portion of the gunk and ick.  The subsequent cleanings gets rid of more and more ick but in lesser amounts. I thought I was going to go crazy those first few months, but things are a lot better now. (I am about 10 months gluten free).  I still have moments of brain fog and even episodes, but my body is getting closer (and more used to)  to having a cleaner "household item".  I know it's tough at first with the increased onslaught of symptoms, but hang in there.   You may want to keep a journal of all that you ingest or come into contact with for a time to track anything that could exacerbate symptoms.  (For me, my episodes are chemically triggered as well.)  If for some reason a few months down the road, you still have large amounts of symptoms it would be a good idea to visit your GP again just in case there something else that is going on.  
    • I would love some help! After 20ish years of being misdiagnosed with IBS, I was diagnosed with celiac disease (positive blood test for tTG IgA and positive duodenal biopsy) ~ 6 weeks ago. Of course I've gone completely gluten free, and I've been crazy paranoid careful not to ingest any gluten. I've also completely avoided all oats (even certified gluten free) and cut out lactose (due to transient lactose intolerance... because I don't have villi) . But now I feel WAY WORSE. I've had abdominal pain every single day, which ranges from mild aching to severe 10/10 laying on the floor crying and vomiting pain. I understand that it takes a long time to get better, but why would I get so much worse? My best guess is SIBO, but I can't imagine that it could cause such extreme symptoms, can it?  So my question to you fine folks is: did this happen to anyone else? Have you gotten sicker after you changed your diet? Is this normal?  For arguments sake, lets assume that I did not ingest any gluten to cause these symptoms... Thank you for your help!
    • Thanks very much Cyclinglady. Yes, it is Kaiser. I doctor said the GI think it is unlikely to be celiac deisease (he did not say how he came to this conclusion), but he would be happy to do an upper endoscopy for me. I did some look up online, this procedure should be low risk. Still feel a little hesitate while reading the potential risks :(.
    • I would suggest you test your daughter through a doctor. The Enterolab tests are not recognized as accurate or reliable by the medical profession. See this link from the Chicago Celiac Disease Center: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/why-dont-you-recognize-tests-stool-tests-or-otherwise-for-gluten-sensitivity-that-are-currently-available-through-companies-like-enterolab-or-cyrex/
