What's For Breakfast Today?

Recommended Posts

"I can find gluten-free bread as a relacement, but not a summer tomato. I loved hot toast with peanut butter."

Carolinakip, I'm sorry that you can't eat those things. :( I love both of those things too, I 'm really trying hard to focus on enjoying what I *can* eat, not taking anything for granted!

This morning I had vanilla flavored black coffee, and a baked potato with avocado and chopped tomatoes on top, my new favorite treat. I never would have thought of combining those things until I started having to get "creative" with my diet, but I love it!


Gluten-Free as of September 2011

Brian, there's a message in my Alphabits...it says 'Oooooooo'.

Peter, those are Cheerios.

You should see the creative ways baked potatoes (or "jackets") are done in England! I've had tuna salad, baked beans and a host of other great potato toppings. Keep experimenting - there are thousands of great combos. I like to add cheeses, pancetta, caramelized shallots, fresh herbs, herb butter, goat's cheese, pesto...

butternut squash soup with half a hot link, and, a bit later, eggwhite casserole made with spinach, ham, sundried tomatoes, and shredded potatoes. (Doesn't everyone have two breakfasts??? :rolleyes: )

Despite the fact that I'm over 30, I think I'm eating like a teenage boy again. Now that said, I do still count my morning snack (included here) as breakfast. Don't know if that makes it any better!

2 jumbo scrambled eggs

1 Rice cake with organic Peanut Butter

1 Fresh Apple

3 slices of Hormel Natural Turkey

2 handfuls of Planters mixed nuts

Oat flakes with a mixture of dried fruit and seeds. One medium boiled egg. Low-fat yoghurt with a finely chopped mandarin for some sweetness. A large cup of green tea.


27, F, from the beautiful area of Twente in the Netherlands. English is not my first language, so I apologize for any errors.

Symptoms started in 2007, but no link to celiac disease was found until 2009. I learned of celiac disease through the internet, my doctor never recognized it. She put me on a diet before tests were done, so the initial tests failed. My GI advised me to do a gluten provocation, which had to be stopped too soon to take a reliable biopsy. Based on symptoms such as vitamin deficiencies, GI problems and osteopenia my diagnosis now is: glutenintolerant, suspected celiac disease. This diagnosis was in march 2010, and I've been so much better ever since.

Well, since I had my breakfast for supper last night, scrambled eggs, msg-less sausage, and gluten-free toast with jelly/butter, I will just have some coffee and possibly some corn chex cereal with almonds and raisins and unsweetened applejuice in place of milk :)

Box of cereal is empty now but I'm saving the chocolate crumbs in the bottom of the bag to put on ice cream or something...too good to waste!

For brunch today: Garden Skillet (and Cinnamon coffee)
