I am sorry about the cereal but how about muffins? I don't buy premade gluten-free cereal (I have big kids now). Kids love mini muffins and I am sure they would be better for you than cereal. Make a couple of flavors and freeze them. There are so many varieties to make and you can add all kinds of good things like pumpkin, berries, coconut, chocolate chips, applesauce, raisins, carrots, zucchini, bananas, cranberries, pineapple, apples....just google muffins and see what comes up.

Or these waffles (leave out the nuts)

Ingredients to Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Baking Flour:

Garbonzo Bean Flour, Potato Starch, Tapioca Flour, White Sorghum Flour, Fava Bean Flour

They freeze well and 1 batch makes about 15 squares.

I made them once with sorghum, tapioca and potato starch and they were still pretty good. You could use soy milk and if you are allergic experiment with 1/2 recipe and use water or part apple juice.

Don't throw out the gluten-free corn flakes, use them for crumbs to coat chicken strips/nuggets with. Add seasonings or even some corn tortilla chip crumbs if you need to.

Envirokidz Gorilla Munch is: Organic corn meal, organic evaporated cane juice, sea salt. BUT, it may contain traces of nuts-depending on how nut-free you are. It's like Kix cereal, but crunchier.

When it comes to mainstream cereals there's Rice Chex (gluten-free label right on the box), Fruity or Cocoa Pebbles. My favorite is EREWHON Rice cereal w/ Berries (like rice krispies but better and healthier), you can find it at Whole Foods/Sprouts/Henry's markets. Just watch their packaging, not all flavors are gluten free :)

Believe it or not she is not into muffins she just tears them up. She is currently eating crackers (ener-g brand gluten free) and cream cheese for breakfast.

((Hugs)) Maybe she will change her mind about muffins soon. My dd has outgrown the rice intolerance, but we still do very little cereal. I remember her having tostitos and apples a lot at the beginning of our gluten-free journey. Now she eats toast, fruit, muffins, potatos, grits, leftover dinner :lol:

    Thank you for all of the suggestions and information.  I will see a lot of the symptoms that I have that I didn't mention listed caused by lack of certain enzymes.  I have blood tests every 3 months. That is when I noticed my cholesterol, etc. not in check.  I eat too many carbohydrates because it causes less diarrhea than a lot of vegetables.  But in talking to 3 of my sisters they are already on medication for the problem.   One has Celiacs the other has Sjorgrens which I also have.  I'm conce
    For the fog and memory, it can be many things, the brain requires certain ratios and amounts of fat to function, it also requires b-vitamins the full spectrum among other amino acids, minerals and vitamins, nerve functions require magnesium, potassium and other things to fire right.  Celiac can hamper the ability to break down and absorb nutrients, digestive issues and enzymes can further complicate this, and trying to eat the right ratios of foods.

    I am interested in your comments about losing your memory.  I have Celiacs and IBS, etc.   Very difficult to eat a healthy diet.  One goes against the other.  The past year I have noticed a marked difference in my memory and was very concerned about it because my mother had Alzheimer's.  I had a brain scan but that is not the problem at least it doesn't show up on the MRI.  All of my blood enzymes are way out of line for my size and I'm thinking it's the diet and inability to do extensive exerci
