Breakfast Ideas

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I just found out today I tested positive for the antibody tests, so this is very new to me.

I went to the grocery store on the way home and think I can tackle dinner pretty easily, but I'm not sure about breakfast and lunch (I noticed there is a lunch thread already!)

Normally for breakfast I usually eat either cereal, toast, english muffin, or bagel with some fruit. So, I guess I'm looking for some new ideas. Also, to make it even more fun, I can't eat eggs. I've been extremely intolerent to eggs (& bananas) for several years now.

Thanks

Jennifer

Muffins,

oatmeal (you may need to wait a bit to try oatmeal - and then you have to get gluten free oats),

lots of varieties of Chex (Rice, Corn, Cinnamon, Honey Nut, Chocolate, Strawberry) - but you need to make sure you get the boxes that say GLUTEN FREE on the front some of the old formulas are still on the shelves,

Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal is very good,

Joan's Gluten Free Bakery (online) sells outstanding bagels and english muffins (not cheap, but fabulous),

pancakes (Pamela's pancake mix makes excellent pancakes and waffles)

Your local health food store or Kroger should have several kinds of gluten-free cereals

Yogurt (Yoplait is our favorite. In the summer we like the French Vanilla with fresh berries.)

When you can do oatmeal you can make your own granola for a cereal, snack, or yogurt topper or granola bars

And for those recipes that call for eggs, you can use egg replacers (either purchased egg replacer or flax I believe)

Breakfast is EASY!!

Eggs are such a perfect breakfast food but I don't tolerate them well either. Are you OK with the amount of egg that is in bread or baked goods? gluten-free baked goods often have a slightly higher ratio of egg than reg, ones do. They help do the work that gluten used to. There are ways to get around this when doing your own baking though and a few products that are egg free I think.

On to breakfast,

*Healthy Choice chicken and rice soup

*Rice Chex cereal-there are several flavors that are gluten-free now but make sure you buy the brand name and see the words gluten-free on the box

*Hormel Naturals ham-all flavors

*Fage greek yogurt

*hash-parboil potatoes until cooked but still hold their shape and cube or slice them, toss them in a skillet with oil, chopped onion, peppers, ham or hot dogs(Hebrew National and Boar's Head are gluten-free) and saute. Either just the potatoes can boiled ahead and the dish made fresh in the a.m. or the whole dish can be made ahead and warmed up. Can make a double batch and then you have enough for the next 2 days.

My favorite breakfast: sausage and sweet potatoes.

You can buy sweet potatoes cubed in a bag, or cube them yourself. Just heat up some oil in a pan (one tsp is enough) and saute the sweet potatoes like home fries. I don't use salt or syrup or anything. I just put the sliced sausages on top of it, and that's enough salt. My favorite gluten-free sausage brand is Aidell's.

Thanks everyone!

Yes, I can eat eggs in bread/baked goods without any problem. Same with bananas actually, so maybe I'll have to find a gluten-free banana bread recipe if such a thing exists!

Some great ideas to start with.

That sounds YUM! I think I'm going to have to give that a try. I'm in a cereal kick with berries right now, but it won't last long. Do you parboil the potatoes first or just cut them small enough to saute?

Here is a great waffle recipe:

http://www.recipezaar.com/312803

I reduce the milk to 1 1/2 cups, great with berries or mini choc. chips or plain.

and english muffins:

http://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/index.php?showtopic=56663

scroll down to Wonka's post for the recipe, my dd loves these, I spray the tops lightly with olive oil cooking spray and use 12" squares of foil-folded into strips for the rings...so easy. I use the 1 1/2 tsps cinnamon, 1/2 cup golden raisins and sometimes add a handful of nuts. Wonka also posted a bagel recipe but I haven't tried it.

My other dd loves breakfast burritos: white corn tortilla lightly fried in cooking spray, then add cooked: hashbrowns O'Brien, ham or bacon, scrambled eggs, cheese. Make up extra and eat burritos for several days.

I love muffins or yogurt with berries and nuts added.

Pamela's Mix is good to have on hand. The larger bag has recipes for pancakes, muffins, banana bread, and all kind of other goodies. biscuits and gravy? cornstarch to thicken the gravy is what momma always used so no big deal there right? :D

i am a big fan of fruit in the morning. kinnikinnick also sells frozen bagels that i just love. i like them better than gluten bagels but not everyone would say the same. i eat cocoa pebbles for breakfast a lot lately. chocolate.. mmm

I always do a fruit smoothie in the Vitamix every morning...organic blueberry juice, black cherry or plain rice milk, add various organic frozen fruits and I throw in a couple of tablespoons of either ground flaxseed or chia seeds for fiber....sometimes I mix in my FloraVital liquid iron supplement (trying to get the red blood cells up!) ...this is really good and keeps you going all morning. I am glad you posted this thread though because when the weather turns cooler, which will be a long time from now (Texas...) ice cold smoothies are just not as not appealing!

I agree with hannahp57....be sure to get Pamela's baking mix. Our favorite weekend breakfast is blueberry pancakes; I just use Pamela's recipe for pancakes on the baking mix bag and add blueberries. Yum!

During the week I try to eat lower carb and rarely have time to cook, so I frequently have something simple like cottage cheese for breakfast.

Here's a recipe for gluten free banana blueberry muffins:

Ingredients:

3 medium very ripe bananas, mashed into puree

3 eggs (can use Egg Replacer)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons raw agave nectar or honey

1/2 cup light olive oil

1 1/3 cups golden brown sugar

1 cup buckwheat flour (or superfine brown rice flour)

1 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup tapioca starch/flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon xanthan gum

2 teaspoons fine grated lemon zest

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1 heaping cup organic frozen wild blueberries (I've used fresh too)

Directions:

In a large mixing bowl, beat together bananas, eggs, vanilla, lemon juice, honey or agave nectar, oil and brown sugar until smooth. Combine the flours, baking soda, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, lemon zest, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the flour mixture and beat until smooth. Fold in blueberries.

If you want muffins, grease muffin pans and fill each cup a little more than 1/2 full. Last time I made this recipe it made 20 muffins. Bake in the center of preheated oven for about 20 minutes.

If you prefer bundt cake, grease the pan, scoop the batter into the pan and smooth until even. Bake in the center of a preheated oven for 40 to 50 minutes until the cake is firm but gives slightly to touch.

Cool on a wire rack. Enjoy!!

The original recipe was from Karina, the Gluten Free Goddess, but she made the blueberry banana bundt cake. We like it better as muffins. These are a favorite at my house...I just made another batch today!

Thanks! I'm definately going to try the banana/blueberry muffins!

Luckily my local grocery store has a pretty nice sized gluten-free section (who knew!!). I picked up a bag of pamela's mix the other day and made the muffin recipe on the back with blueberries. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised!! Unfortunately I realized after I made them and after I ate them that my "artificial vanilla extract" is not gluten-free! But that was day 1 of going gluten-free, so I didn't really notice. I guess there will be some trial and error in the beginning until I manage to get my kitchen celiac friendly!

I would also put my vote with Pamela's Baking Mix as the first place to start when you begin venturing out into the world of gluten free baking and cooking. I make pumpkin pancakes with the mix, add nuts, ground flax seed (I highly recommend getting some - you can add it into all of your baked goods as well as pancakes & waffles and get the extra fiber and Omega 3 fatty acid which is often lacking in the gluten free diet), and a small bit of sugar (so syrup isn't necessary if I don't want, it tastes like very mildly sweet pumpkin bread) and then freeze leftovers. During the week I can then pull a couple out and heat them up in the toaster. I also sometimes make banana or berry pancakes instead, too.

These are all wonderful ideas.

Can you all help with some ideas that have some more protien and are diary free. I got the eggs and I can do yougurt. I can't do nuts so can't get my protien from there. Not that I am allergic to them I just can chew them. I can do peanut butter so I do sometimes. But running out of ideas.

My lowcarb, dairy-free breakfasts are usually canned pumpkin for my carb with cinnamon, nutmeg and Earthbalance spread or some non-starchy vegetable like asparagus, broccoli or califlower, sometimes avacado. Sometimes I'll saute or steam extra veg. while I'm making dinner so that I'll have some ready to go for B. Protein is meat-bacon( often cooked ahead in batches and stored in the fridge), low sugar ham-Hormel Naturals, deli turkey-Columbus Salame Co. or Applegate Farms Herbed Roasted Turkey Breast, broiled salmon, Kirkland Turkey Burgers-plain, bunless, Trident Salmon Burgers-plain, bunless. I try to eat proteins that can be largely unattended while I get kiddos B and L together-stuff can be trown in a frying pan or eaten straight from the fridge or put under the broiler.

Missy's mom, Do you just mix the pumpkin with the cinn. and nutmeg and earthbalance and thin it out and the pour it on the veggies? That sounds really good. I guess I need to think outside the box.

Never thought of that but it does kinda sound good right now as I'm eating my broccoli, hmmm broccoli with pumpkin sauce...I just eat plop it straight from the can into a small cup and add the flavorings and microwave it 'till warm. You could add sweetener and/or dairy-free "milk". Pumpkin custard-basically the filling of pumkin pie is great for breakfast too! You can pour the reg. filling recipe into greased dish or dishes and bake. You can easily cut back on the sugar and it still tastes great, then you don't need to feel guilty about having it for B!

Hi,

I make my husband, Jeff (he has Celiac Sprue) gluten free breakfast bars. I use gluten free rice crispie ceral, marshmallows, butter and peanut butter. Its just like making rice crispie bars with peanut butter, he usually takes one of those and banana to work every morning. On the weekends we have eggs, sausage & hash browns.

I wouldn't recommend this on a regular basis, but we keep ensure high-protein in the fridge for those ocassional days where I sleep in or something and need breakfast on the run. Ensure are gluten-free and lactose free: http://www.abbottnutrition.ca/adp_ani_an_d...ent_0000016.htm and I enjoy the taste :)

Bon apetit,

Jillian

I have diagnosed gluten intolerance plus allergies to dairy, soy, eggs, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg. So my favorite 'safe' quick breakfast is Ener-G Foods Seattle Brown bread topped with peanut butter and chopped fruit. When I have more time to cook I make Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty Gluten Free (hot) cereal cooked in hazelnut milk. I stir in a heaping spoonful of almond butter after the cereal is cooked (microwaved 3 minutes) and top that with chopped fruit or berries. I also like gluten free oats cooked in hazelnut milk with dried apples. I haven't found any cold cereals that are free of all my allergies. So I stick with bread and peanut butter or cooked cereals with fruit.
