I usually do fruit for breakfast. I have oranges, kiwi, pineapple. Sometimes cereal....but since I do not like milk I eat it dry. When I really crave grease....bacon.


~~~~Gluten Free since 9/2004~~~~~~

Friends may come and go but Sillies are Forever!!!!!!!

I'm limited with my breakfast selections as well. I can't do eggs, so I'll make some other suggestions.

Half an apple with a big glob of almond butter.

A handful of almonds and a piece of fruit.

Isernio's Chicken breakfast sausage and a piece of rice toast.

Trader Joe's uncured Turkey Bacon and a piece of toast.

Pancakes with a bit of almond butter and jelly instead of syrup.

Leftover chicken.

I make my own muffins, there are a lot of gluten free recipies and I am sure you can find recipies to meet your other reqirements. I always add fruit and nuts to the mixes. Bannana, crandberries, orange juice and zest, rasiens, apple sauce and nuts. I also try to use gluten free flours that have fiber and usually add ground flax seeds.

I also eat lean ham on corn tortillas (I melt cheese...). I also do egg, ham, cheese & ham and put on corn tortillas.

Plain Yogart, frozen berries, ground flax seed & orangejuice make a great smoothy. I guess you cant have yogart....Is there a gluten free protein powder out there? Smoothies are great, I make enough to last for 2 days.

Just take foods you like and get creative. I have only been eating gluten free about 5 months and I am eating a lot healthier. I think I am eating more caleries, but I have lost weight

I forgot one thing (thanks Peggy for reminding me). I sometimes make smoothies with either rice milk or occasionally coconut milk, fruit and rice protein powder.

I make a cereal from scratch i found in a cookbook:

1/2 cup raw almonds

1/2 cup flax seeds

1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes

one mint tea bag (optional)

coconut milk as the milk

Crush the almonds and flax seed in the blender (the flax grinds better in a coffee grinder and then transferred to the blender) add coconut flakes and tea bag. blend/crush until desired consistency (i like it a little chunkier because it's more chewy)

Mix 1/4 cup of the cereal with 1/4 cup coconut milk. I also put it in the microwave for 30 secs. for a hot cereal which is yummy.

I'm new to the boards but b.fast is my favorite meal of the day and cereal i consumed for years if not once a day then several times a day! thanks for the post. other days i eat eggs & turkey bacon, apple with peanut butter/almond butter, leftovers from the night before....

It changes everyday but my favorites are:

banana/apple with almonds when I am on the go

almond butter on gluten free waffle/toast or rice cake

plain oatmeal (if you can have it) with blueberries

i love those gluten free pancakes you can make every once in a while (contains 1 egg)

the morning is the best time to have fruit and i love anything with green tea!

What do I eat for breakfast? Anything in the fridge.

As far as I'm concerned, if it's in the fridge, it's food and it's appropriate for breakfast. Because I work insanely unpredictable hours, I need my meals to last - sometimes up to eight hours (though I try to keep it to four or five). This week, for example, I had pork stir fry on Monday, leftover rice with milk (plus nuts, raisins and dried fruit. . .high protein, high carb, long lasting) on Tuesday, leftover roast lamb with boiled potatoes on Wednesday, plain dry pancakes with apple and peanut butter on Thursday, Friday was cranberry pecan muffins, and this morning I had cereal with dried fruit and milk.

Ever since I lived in Austria, I've been addicted to rice flakes - they're rolled rice (think rolled oats). . .they look a bit like flaked cardboard, but they taste yummy, particularly with dried fruit and milk (though NOT raisins, for some reason. . .). A very good gluten-free substitute for all those ex-granola junkies out there. Only problem is they can be a bit tricky to locate. . .I'm in heaven since my little local health food shop started carrying them all the time.

I don't know what else to do i called the support group in my area last week and she still hasn't gotten back to me..I really need to talk to other people who have this...No one seems to understand me. they think I'm going on the Atkins diet.Anyway any suggestions on a menu would help a whole lot...

I think this is going to be the hardest meal of the day for me as I can't possibly eat eggs every day and I can't eat dairy (except butter)

My requirements for breakfast:

-gluten and casein/lactose free

-must contain protein to keep my blood sugar balanced (hypoglycemia)

The combination of these 2 things makes it hard for me to figure out what to eat! Rice milk with a gluten-free corn flake cereal with fruit won't cut it because I need protein and/or fat in each of my meals!

Any suggestions? What do you eat?

aaahhhhh a fellow hypoglycemic lactose intolerate celiac! I understand completely. I'm sorta stuck like you. I vary my egg with sausage and bacon, or bacon and sausage! Real exciting I know. Let me know if you come up with something different. I snack on almonds. Lunch is a salad with some meat, lots of salad dressing (fat), olives, dill pickles. I feel much better. But breakfast is getting old!

No one really understands that we can't have carbs,,,. I'm just now starting to add fruit to my diet. It caused symptoms also, but I think this is working as my symptoms have subsided substantially. I think the gluten was more of the problem than carbs.

Hang in there. Food's not everything. I eat to feel good, so variety isn't that important.


Rheumatic fever at age 5 and again at age 6. Antibiotics for 6 years to prevent strep throat.

Anemia, Mono, Hepititis, Pernicious Anemia, Enlarged Heart, Osteopenia, Vitamin D deficiency, Ataxia, Digestive issues, reactive hypoglycemia, and on and on and on!

Following the SCD diet after gluten free didn't solve symptoms. Much better and getting back my life!

I've found I feel best and keep going the longest if I have eggs for breakfast. I try to vary them, though. I'll do a frittata (chop some onion, red/green peppers, small bits of broccoli and/or spinach, and saute in the pan in something (I use Smart Beat). Then pour in an egg (I like Eggland's Best....lower cholesterol & fat, higher omega 3's) mixed with 1/3 c. All Whites....that boosts protein, the one egg gives color and body, and you don't notice the extra whites). You can also mix in salt/pepper/Mrs. Dash or something you like), cook on low with lid on top till set. This tastes great....like a quiche minus the crust.

Or I'll do scrambled eggs (same mix) with a slice of Canadian Bacon.

Or poached egg on rice bread toast with either bacon or Canadian Bacon.

Sometimes I'll make a rice cereal like Arrowhead Mill's organic Rice N Shine, which actually has some texture to it. It's high carb, not so high in protein, though, so I get hungry sooner when I eat this.

I always have a 1/2 grapefruit no matter what else I eat.

Peanut Butter and Banana on Rice Cake (though some say Quakers Rice cakes are not made on dedicated gluten free machines (So tommorrow I am trying my first sample of rice flour bread I found in the frozen bread section at Whole Foods.

There is a grain meal called polenta but it only has 2 grams of protein. I fix it with butter and brown sugar melted on top.

Smoothie wise,,frozen strawberries, frozen banana chunks(I freeze my over ripe bananas in chunks) blended with orange juice. My substitute when the others are having ice cream.

Ive been vegan for about 4 years and wheat/gluten free for about 7 months.

I eat about 3 cups of Puffins Peanut Butter cereal (decent protein) with Silk Omega 3 milk.

About 2 cups of Spinach, 1 Advacado, 1 Banana, and a glass of Orange Juice. With the OJ I mix some Grapefruit Seed Extract and some Glutamine powder.

All and all its decent protein and good calories. Puffins is the best completely wheat free/gluten free cereal I have found.

I'm gluten and casein intolerant too, but also a low-carber/paleoish eater so am very used to eating just regular food for breakfast. Meat and veg, usually, or omlettes. Soups are good too, I second whoever it was who posted about brekkie soups! Tuna or egg salads, maybe wrapped in lettuce leaves...mmm. Of course bacon and sausage, grilled tomatoes. Anything really. If I wasn't low-carbing (or for a now and then food) I love baked beans dumped over fried eggs. Chili and eggs is good too! Oooh, and liver with eggs! Man, now I'm hungry.

Funny how so few cultures in the world have special breakfast foods. Wonder why we do? Think outside the "breakfast food" box and eat whatever you like, whenever you like. Be a breakfast rebel!

Just a warning... the Puffins peanut butter variety is not gluten-free. The only type of Puffins cereal that is gluten-free is the Honey Rice. It's yummy!

Im going to have to go in today and ask them about it.

If it is not gluten free, it could be the reason why I feel like hell for the past couple of days/weeks.

I mostly have fruit only for brekky. Sometimes with a few nuts. It is amazing how sustaining it is.


Gluten intolerant - self diagnosed 2007 (not willing to do gluten challenge) and anemic

no dairy, soy, legumes, eggs, sugar, chocolate

no baked and processed foods (also gluten-free bakery) and high GI (due to hypoglycemia)

enjoy brown rice, buckwheat, quinoa and polenta instead

neurological symptoms flare up when glutened and in times of stress

following paleo diet, lots of raw fruit and veg, omega 3 oils, nuts

I feel heathy and able to function for the first time in my life. Thank God.

Organic food gives a great advantage.

Kefir rules!

On a mission to get rid of Candida overgrowth after a stressful event dropped my immune system. On a strict anti-candida diet using herbs and natural remedies. No meds or drugs to make it worse thanks.

im thinking that im going to get rid of the cereal and soy milk and replace it with peanuts and something else.

im trying to go raw in spring so i want to slowly get there so it wont be such a shock to me. im also a martial artist so im trying to find a way to keep my calories up.

in your signature it states that you went completely organic. ive been vegan for 4 years and just waiting to make that step to all organic or maybe raw.

I hope you do! I read something that there are certain hormones released within the first hour of rising if you eat breakfast. And eventually they will stop if you don't eat breakfast and then you get sick. Can't remember which website I read that on.

You may reconsider as you get old like me!
