Cheap Breakfast Ideas?

7 posts in this topic

Just posting in the hope that anyone has cheap breakfast ideas. Obviously, prices and availability will vary be country and location.

 

gluten-free Mueslis and breakfast cereals (Freedom Foods, usually) cost me $11/kg and up, compared to say a wheat biscuit (Weet-bix) breakfast for $3.80/kg. Quinoa flakes are also $10/kg and rice flakes (yuk) come in at $7/kg

 

I have tried before a brown rice with honey and milk breakfast, and that's probably around $2.50/kg for the rice, but I would really appreciate some more ideas.

Are you in the UK?

Anyway.....you can eat anything you want for breakfast - last nights left- overs, eggs, hard boiled eggs are even quicker in the morning, make pancakes ahead, freeze and re- heat, yogurt, gluten-free sausages ( I cook a bunch, freeze and then microwave ), cheese microwaved on a corn tortilla ( add anything else you like, baked potato with cheese and ham, ), left- over pizza, fruits and nuts, etc

Rice pudding with fresh fruit my kids love it. Get the big sacks of rice from the Chinese stores they are cheap, use whatever milk you like.

You can make your own granolas meusli we do as our kids Yates change all the time. We always have dried fruit and nuts at home, we just occasionally buy the other bits and pieces. It's ever the same twice.

A staple muesli type we make, lightly crushed gluten-free honey chex, nuts, dried prunes apricots pineapple papaya chopped and we added shredded unsweetened oconut.

Lots of breakfast protein foods are gluten-free: eggs, bacon, ham, many sausages. Milk is gluten-free, as is butter and virtually all cheese. Peanut butter is almost certain to be gluten-free, but read the label to be sure.

Carbohydrates are more of a challenge, but fruits and fruit juices are inherently gluten-free, unless contaminated. Hash browns are usually gluten-free, but could be contaminated during frying.

None of these require you to pay a premium to buy a "gluten-free" version.

Can you have cheese?  My daughter likes a piece of cheese or cottage cheese and fruit.  She also often eats raw carrots for breakfast.  She just loves them!  Or apple slices and nut butter.  She can't have peanut butter but can have sunseed butter.

 

The Zucchini bread recipe in the recipe section of this website (not the forum) is great!  I make it without nuts and with an egg replacer.  I usually make it in the form of muffins and they do freeze well.  I have made other gluten-free muffins and pancakes and freeze those too.  Have made gluten-free bagels.  Daughter liked them but they are in no way like a wheat bagel.  I have also made a foccacia bread, leaving out the savory herbs that are normally in the recipe and subbing in a little cinnamon and sugar or artifical sweetener.  Cut it in strips after it comes out of the oven.  You can then top it with something like a fruit pie type filling or a little sweet glaze if you want.  Can also add nuts.

 

I like to eat polenta for breakfast.  I buy the tubes of precooked.  Slice, top with a little tomato sauce and microwave till warm.  I eat with some pumpkin seeds or nuts on the side for protein.  But if you can have cheese, cheese melted onto this is great!

 

I also like grits but am usually too rushed in the morning to want to bother to make them.  They are great with maple syrup and butter on them if you can eat that many carbs.  But you could probably get the same result with a drop of maple flavoring.  Oh...  Now I want some!  Saw grits at the store today but did not buy.  *Whips out grocery list and adds grits to it*  Also good with cheese melted in. 

 

You can make a crustless quiche with eggs, any kinds of vegetables that you like, meats, cheese, etc.  Can be eaten cold or hot.

 

You can make trail mix with assorted nuts and seeds, dried fruit, coconut.  Use more seeds than nuts to lower the price.  Unless you get a really good price on nuts!  And you can add gluten-free cold cereal to this to lessen the cost.

Polenta is a nice alternative to breakfast carbs, mix in a little proscuitto and serve on the side with cantaloupe.

    • ^^^^^^ good info, tips and tricks^^^^^^^^^ yes, crumbs will make you sick.  also, breathing flour/pancake mix, etc that is in the air because eventually, you're going to swallow some. 
    • Hello I was diagnosed Dec 15 of last year and went totally gluten-free the next day. I actually got worse before I got better - it's a steep learning curve - but now, 4 1/2 months later I'm finally seeing improvement.  Hang in there. 
    • Called my GI doctor today to make sure he is going to look at my small intestine and do biopsy for Celiac for my EGD and he is. Thanks for the tip everyone about have to start eating gluten again. The office told me to break my gluten free diet and start eating gluten everyday until my EGD. Here's to being miserable again for a few weeks 🍻🍞😩
    • I can completely relate! The horrible mental effects that I have been living with for years is the absolute worst side effect of eating gluten, HANDS DOWN. Worse than the endless tummy aches, worse than the constant diarrhea, worse than the week long migraines, worse than the daily fatigue and body pain.... I honestly though there was something seriously wrong with me and hated my life because of how I felt mentally. I always felt like I was drowning, not in control of my thoughts, trapped in some unexplained misery. My head was always so cloudy, and I was mad because I always felt so slow and stupid. I would feel so lethargic and sad and empty while at the same time be raging inside, wanting to rip out of my own skin. I was mean, terrible, would snap at the people closest to me for no good reason and just felt like I hated everyone and everything. Think of how crappy you feel when you have a terrible cold and flu - I felt that crappy, but mentally. Some days were really bad, some were mild. I always thought it was because I was getting a migraine, or because I had a migraine, or because I had just overcome a migraine, because I didn't sleep well, because....always a random reason to justify why we have all these weird unrelated symptoms before we get diagnosed. I'm happy to say that I have been gluten-free for about 2 months now and though I am not symptom free, the first thing that improved was my mood. I no longer feel foggy and miserable. For the first time in years, my head is clear, I can actually think, and I feel positive and like I am in control of what's going on in my head. I don't hate the world. I don't spend every day bawled up on the corner of the couch depressed and angry. The release of these horrible symptoms is enough to never make me want to cheat, no matter what I have to miss out on. So insane how a little minuscule amount of a stupid protein can wreck such havoc. 
    • I wanted to collect some of the info on NCGI in one place so that visitors who test negative but may still have an issue with gluten can be directed there.
