    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?

What's For Breakfast?

Recommended Posts

I don't know whether I'm celiac (don't think so as I've not really had any symptoms), or just intolerant/allergic. I've switched to two meals a day to make things easier. I usually eat around 11 and 5:30. Most days I'm fine with this schedule. Sometimes I'll have some fruit for a snack. My husband feels I need to go back to three meals a day since I'm breastfeeding. My son has not had problems gaining weight and as I've mentioned in previous posts his eczema has almost completely gone away with me eliminating soy and gluten. I had only just started eating dairy again just before I got my allergy test results back. I have since gone back off dairy although I don't know whether he reacts to that or not.

Just looking for ideas. :)

So, are you home for your late breakfast? If yes, I eat scrambled eggs with sauted veggies and homemade sausage most days lots of protein and holds me for quite a while, relatively speaking. If something ever changed with my system, I could be in biiiiggg trouble - I eat about 5-7 meals each day - three normal then mini-meals in between.

My oldest was, and still is, intolerant to processed meat and cinnamon when I was breastfeeding and I had to keep those completely out of my diet. Of course, those are pretty easy to avoid. He had reflux and if I ate anything that bothered him, boy, he was really miserable.

During the week I usually have Knickiknick bread toasted w/ cashew or almond butter. Weekends are either french toast made w/ same bread, gluten-free English Muffins w/ nut butter or eggs, bacon and hashbrowns.

Mmmm. I'm hungry now!

when I was nursing I had to do the six small meals a day.

oh, and I hear eggs are good for you ;) I used to like boiled eggs with chicken, celery, pickles and mayo on crackers.

I am a stay at home mom so eating at different times wouldn't be a problem. My youngest has been the only one that really reacted to anything. He was my first vegan pregnancy plus I had 4 crowns put on before I found out I was pregnant and had a root canal done my third trimester. I still think all the mercury that has to be going through my body could have been a problem. He broke out with a rash on his forhead between his eyes that oozed a little bit when he was a week or so old I think. Maybe the Hep B? set that off. He broke out in eczema on his forhead and sides of his face 1-2 weeks after his two month vaccinations. I believe the combination of shots and the fact the pneumococcal has soy protein set him off. I have read that soy is a cummulative allergen. He has not had any vaccinations since, we are giving his immune system time to get over the onslaught. We will be giving him a few more but will be avoiding most vaccinations. Our whole family has gone off of soy and the rest of the family just recently went off wheat and gluten with the exception of oats since they seem to be less problematic. My older two are having a hard time adjusting to meats but love the Food for Life Rice Bread. I think that's the brand. My husband and I were raised on meats so it hasn't been a problem for us going back on them.

Do you find that your son has the same allergies as you or different as he got older.

I typically have rice with eggs and/or sausage. I also cook up mushrooms when I have them. I usually will have an orange with it. I also sometimes have just the eggs and sausage with rice bread. I really need to work on increasing my fruits and veggies. I was borderline allergic to a lot of veggies though.

My oldest son has kept his own food intolerances and they have not grown - yet; his celiac disease test was negative. My oldest son's eczema, which can get bad, comes and goes - he hasn't had a batch in almost a year now. I have not been able to link it to anything specific.

My youngest son didn't have any food issues when he was born but has developed lactose intolerance in the last year; he has not been tested for celiac disease yet because it appears to be limited to just dairy and he isn't having any health issues besides his asthma and eczema which isn't that bad. He is continuing to grow (now almost 13).

I add pototoes or rice to almost all my meals for that extra feeling of fullness.

Kate,

Are you the only one in your family gluten free? That must be hard. My husband has opted for the whole family to go gluten free. We just sent out our kits to enterolab so we won't know for three weeks what those results are.

Are you aware of the hidden msg? I have a list I posted somewhere yesterday (I forget where) but I can repost it here if you are interested. It is from Dr. Russell Blaylock's book Excitotoxins. We avoid all msg because of the damage it can do. If it is naturally in foods we don't worry about that, just the processed stuff. We are all also soy free because it can cause the same damage (or more) to the intestines that wheat can.

I am the only one gluten-free in the family - however, most of our meals at home are naturally gluten-free. We only occasionally cook a gluten filled side for the rest to eat. And pizza night, I fix mine first then I fix theirs so no fumes leftover in the oven to contaminate my food...learned that one the hard way! I am first in the microwave too.

I rarely eat anything pre-packaged. Pizza and pasta sauce for now but plan on making and canning my own this summer. Chebe breads...that's about it--I don't think I eat anything else that is pre-packaged, hum. Oh, my passover, vinegar free mayo but have a recipe now that calls for lemon instead of vinegar so I will start making my own once I run out of the case I bought when it came in.

I have been off MSG for years but don't think I have ever really seen a full list.

Canning, that is something I want to do eventually. I never haved like canned veggies though. I bough all the stuff a couple years ago but my husband changed jobs shortly thereafter and we haven't had all the extra money to stock up in the summer time for canning. Now with a baby I'll probably have to wait until next year. Maybe I can do a little this summer. My husband works 60-70 hours a week so he can't help with the kids during the week.

Trying to find things for him to eat on the road is a challenge. He eats to much cereal and not enough protein. He eats while he drives as they don't get paid for breaks and often have to get to the next destination. He's gets paid by the mile and taking time for eating would only throw his schedule off more and get him off even later. Heading in to the summer my kids just hope that he gets home before bedtime which is rare. We miss him but make the sacrifice so I can stay home.

I have dinner for breakfast. It helped me [keep] weight on. The chiropractor (the only doc I trust with degrees in nutrition) has me eating my largest meal in the a.m. and I eat at least 3 times a day and snack in between.

I'm a celiac that has secondary food allergies...

I have baked chicken, carrots and zuccini. Then a piece of fruit.

Or a burger (big man size) with cucumbers, asparagus, and carrot juice.
