Breakfast Suggestions?

Recommended Posts

I'm still new to this and am really struggling with breakfast. The thought of eating left-overs isn't really appealling, but I'm also dairy and yeast sensitive, so cereals, breads, etc, are out. Also, I leave the house at 5:30 AM, so I need something FAST. So far, I'm OK with celery and peanut butter or rice, but does anybody have other suggestions?

I eat the Atkins Morning Start Bars (choc chip). You can eat those on the go and they are really good! I am also very sensitive when it comes to cross contamination and thus far they have not made me sick (knock on wood) :rolleyes:

You can have cereal, but you'd have to use soy/rice/nut milk. Of course, cereal gets old too! Some of the things I have (I'm also gluten-free/CF):

rice cakes with peanut butter

soy yogurt

fruit smoothie (usually with rice protein powder)

millet grits (made with soy milk, vanilla, and cinnamon)

bob's red mill's mighty tasty hot cereal

quinoa flakes

mochi (the stuff from grainaissance)

flax crackers (homemade) and fruit

leftover waffles from the weekend (not crispy, but still tasty)

i have NO time in the morning either, and something that has worked for me is making these south beach diet crustless quiche cups-- i'm sure the recipe is on the web somewhere if you just google it. i make a big batch every few weeks, then freeze them and pop them in the microwave for a minute before i eat. you can leave out the cheese if you have dairy issues. they're yummy, filling, and protein-packed! (it's really easy-- this is the ONLY thing i cook EVER.)

How about Meusli made with puffed rice cereal instead of rolled oats?

Fill your bowl about 2/3 of the way with puffed rice.

Drizzle about a tablespoon of olive oil on it.

Chop half an apple on top.

Squeeze a little lemon juice on that.

Add raisins or dates.

Throw on a few nuts.

Sprinkle with coconut.

Enjoy.

Smoothies are great and usually quick (unless you have a hard to clean blender like me!)

My favorite:

1/2 cup coconut milk

1 frozen banana

1 tbsp protein powder (I like rice protein powder)

1 tsp cocoa

10 drops liquid stevia or use honey

1 tbsp peanut butter

Really good! Coconut milk is great and creamy and will fill you up.

my fave breakfast is to swing through McDonald's drive through and get a side order of scrambled eggs, a side order of sausage, hashbrowns and a bottled water. I go there so often the staff knows me and they know to cook my eggs fresh on a clean grill, and to not EVER put a bisquit in my bag!

I also make gluten-free pancakes and freeze them in individual sandwich bags inside a freezer bag, then microwave them in a paper towel for a minute then eat it on the run.

Envirokids cereal bars or Glutino Cereal bars are also good when I'm in a rush and just need to throw something in my purse.

We've had:

Muffins that I have baked another day and frozen. My son loves the lemon poppy and corn muffins from "The great tasting food company" I used the cake mixes and make them into muffins (they are lighter than the muffins mixes).

Knickknick choc chip muffins

Barbara's cereal

Foods by George English Muffins

Josephs Bagels

Grits

Original White Bread by "The Great tasting Food Company" toasted or french toast, made the night before and microwaved

Pancakes by the same company as above ( as you can see we really like them)

Hope this helps

Thanks so much for all the great suggestions! Here I was feeling sorry for myself about how limited my diet had become, and the real problem was just a lack of imagination. It's wonderful to be able to learn from the voices of experience. Thanks again.
