Celiac and Intolerant

Help With Breakfast

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi, this is my first posting, so sorry if I cross any lines through ignorance. I was diagnosed as celiac over a year ago, so no gluten grains, have a pork allergy, so no pork, am intolerant to egg whites, corn, rice, oats, apples, coffee, tea, sweet potatoes, among many others, and chocolate and citrus gives me migraines, so none of that! Soooooooo, breakfast has become a hugh obstacle for me. Any recipes?????? This seems to be my hardest meal of the day:(

Here's a thread about what people eat for breakfast. Really, you can eat left-overs from dinner. It really doesn't have be the typical cereal or eggs.

Have you tried other grains:

Quinoa

Amaranth

Millet

cooked with cinnamon and sugar goes well

How about coconut flour recipes. I'll bet you can find a pancake or waffle recipe you can adjust.

Also, have you tested any of your intolerances after a few months on the gluten-free diet? Frequently when you're well along in your healing, some of the foods that bothered you should be o.k. now. At least that's what I've read and heard. I'm just a little over 3 months gluten-free myself and still testing some things. I just added sorghum to my diet. I'm going to test quinoa in a couple days I think.

...am intolerant to egg whites, corn, rice, oats, apples, coffee, tea, sweet potatoes, among many others, and chocolate and citrus gives me migraines, so none of that!

Just out of curiosity, how does your intolerance of eggs, corn and sweet potatoes manifest itself? Also, are you reacting to actual sweet potatoes or are they possibly yams? Do you know if your intolerance is to both sweet potatoes and yams?

The reason I ask is that your list of items is somewhat similar to a list I had for about 3 years. The eggs, corn and sweet potatoes (in my case, sweet potatoes, OK; yams, not) stood out. I am curious to know if your reaction matches the one I had.

My list eventually grew to include corn, eggs, dairy, potatoes, yams (but not real sweet potatoes), nuts, olives, cinnamon as well as a few other things I'm not recalling right now. Regardless, I finally managed to discover the reason. I was chronically dehydrated. It took 3 years to discover this but as can be imagined, I was really overjoyed to be able to add these back into my diet.

I'd be really interested to know what kind of symtoms you have when you eat the foods you listed.

Do you react to all those foods? If not, how were you diagosed with those allergies? Which tests indicated you were allergic to those foods? I thought I had lots of restrictions with my 7 foods, which are often ingredients in cereals, processed foods and baked goods. However, I managed to find several choices for breakfast, which I believe I already listed in that 'breakfast' thread. Good luck!

Can you have dairy? I find that a bowl of plain yogurt with fruit or honey to sweeten it and a handful of nuts will keep me full a long time. I think the protein in the nuts is an important part of that. And like other posters said, don't limit yourself to traditional breakfast foods. Make a casserole and scoop some out for breakfast. Have tuna with crackers or leftover meatballs. If you eat protein and fruit or veggies, it will keep you full longer than if you eat just grains for breakfast. This is from personal experience as well as dietary science.

After being diagnosed in Fall of 2010, I went on a strick gluten free diet and have remained so. But I still was feeling stomach upsets and colon problems, so my doc ran an Ig-E allergy test for the basic allergies and it showed a Class I allergy to pork last November. Still had problems, so in December 2011, I got the (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) Test which showed my intolerances on a cellular level (things that were not immediate reaction like on the IgE tests, but that develop over a period of days after eating the food. It seemed to me that after the first few months of being gluten free, my other food allergies and intolerances really were kicking me in the gut! My symptoms were anywhere from stomach pain and gas to runny nose and sinus problems. But in that theses things may take days to react fully, it is very hard to identify which ingredient caused it. So I took the expensive test to help out. Now I am on a desensitizing diet and hopefully will become able to tolerate at least some of the items in a few months. The sweet potatoes are home grown sweet potatoes straight from the garden.

These have become a staple in my diet since going gluten-free four months ago: My link"]http://www.elanaspantry.com/breakfast-bars/

Thanks for the reply, but I cannot tolerate almonds, grapeseed oil, vanilla, sunflower, and some of the other ingredients in these, though they look yummy! Maybe in a few months when I hopefully get less sensitive!

I forgot to mention in my original post that I have been gluten free for over a year and my food allergies and insensitivities have shown up strongly after the gluten-free change. So far my gastroenterologist says I just have a reactive system, and it will take time to calm everything down. Thanks for your reply!

Thanks for your reply! I have a very strong (Ige reaction to chocolate and citrus...anywhere from 1 to 3 days I get a migraine headache! The pork allergy was detected on a food rast Ige test and the others were diagnosed on an (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) test. The Ige is a basic allergy test which tests for immediate reaction. The (Company Name Removed - They Spammed This Forum and are Banned) tests for changes in your cells over a period of days..which is more an intolerance than allergy and can be desensitized by elimination of the food for anywhere from 3 to 6 months then reintroducing it into your diet to check for reaction. I knew even after going gluten free, other things were hurting me so I did these two things to try to help me desensitize my system. Basically I have had to go back to cooking everything from fresh ingredients, no mayo, mustard, combined spices, sauces, etc. that I don't personally make. The paleo diet (eating as the ancestors did) helps somewhat, but they don't eat milk which is the one thing I can eat!

I do eat dairy! I thought I was having a problem with it for the first few months after diagnosis, so I went completely off it for about 7 months, now I am enjoying it often. I have greek yogurt and fruit with agave pretty often also. Nuts sound good with it...thanks! I can't have tuna, beef, pork, chicken, etc. for the meatballs, but I'm playing around with turkey. I recently was given a venison tenderloin and enjoyed it until it was all gone! I haven't found crackers yet that don't have gluten, rice, corn, almonds, sunflowers, etc. in them, but I'm looking. I think the proteins are what I seem to be having a lot of problem with. This morning I had friend egg yolks, brussel sprouts and monterey jack cheese! Thanks for your reply, I appreciate it!

Thanks for your reply, I am trying to find coconut flour recipes without rice or corn products. I have some of the alternate grains but haven't tried cooking them yet.

I do a fruit smoothie and and a handful of nuts every morning and was surprised to find I am fine until lunch time. I really pack my smoothie (banana, mango, frozen berries, couple of handfuls of fresh baby spinach.) I usually use almond milk or coconut milk and some fruit juice as the liquid. Sometimes I add a scoop of greek yogurt if I'm feeling like I need more protein. Since all the fruit can be frozen, I keep little ziploc bags of mixed fruit handy in the freezer so I just need to add it to the milk and blend . . . fast and easy. The spinach is great - does not change the taste, but adds lots of fiber and nutrition.

This waffle recipe is wonderful. Adjust it to your needs. I use less milk. Freeze waffles between layers of waxed paper, then in a bag. Reheat in the toaster. Tip-keep an unpeeled banana in the freezer, thaw in warm water.
