What Does Everyone Eat For Breakfast?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm not the one with the gluten issues. But I don't usually eat a big breakfast. Today I had cottage cheese and toast. Sometimes I had cereal. Yesterday I had an upset stomach so just plain rice. Sometimes I have polenta with tomato sauce.

Daughter is the one with gluten issues. She doesn't much like breakfast. Lately she has been eating apples and carrots. Once in a while I'll make bacon and we'll both have that.

Monday - Friday it's a quick bowl of Chex with 2% milk. And coffee of course (with Truvia).

Weekends might be either buttered toasted Udi's bread, or toasted Udi's bagel, with jam or agave syrup. And perhaps eggs & bacon. Or breakfast tacos with scrambled eggs, bacon, cheese, and homemade salsa.

best regards, lm

I had to leave dairy and eggs so that limited my breakfasts.

Lately it's these cookies for breakfast or you could call em grainless granola bars if ya want. ;)

It is just perfect to grab two big cookies and a cup of coffee and head out the door.

If you can have nuts that is.

Nutty Cookies (Adapted from Elana's Pantry Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe)

1 cup Grapeseed oil

1 cup Agave syrup

1 T. Vanilla

5 cups Almond flour

1/2 tsp Salt

1/2 tsp Baking soda

Bunch of Walnuts

Bunch of Cashews

I add as many walnuts and cashews as the batter will hold. I mound them up on a cookie sheet and bake until done. 325 bout 10-12 min.

Hmm I might try baking them as a bar. Never thought of it til now.

My latest breakfasts are smoothies. I put the following in a blender. Yogurt (vanilla or something I like) banana, strawberries or any other fruit I like (Kiwi, blueberries etc.) Then a good handful of spinach. If you use bananas you don't taste the spinach at all and it helps with staying full. Blend - and it's yummy. (My kids haven't figured out why it's green yet!) I drink on the way to work.

I do spinach smoothies too! When I give it to my little ones, I call it swamp juice (think Shrek) and they love it. (It's all in the name -- broccoli is called dinosaur trees at my house.) They love peanut butter smoothies too: peanut butter, bananas, rice (or soy) milk, vanilla yogurt, ice cubes and a little Stevia or agave nectar. Don't put in too much peanut butter though or it will be too... peanut buttery.

I'd like to thank everyone for responding. There are some fantastic ideas here, especially those I can make ahead. I will come back to this again and again.

I have to eat breakfast every day or I starve until lunch. I eat 2 eggs, whisked together in a bowl and then nuked in one of those egg poacher-style containers. Usually I add some lean ham (pre-cooked) and mustard on gluten-free, dairy-free bread. That gives me protein, fat, and carbs. I find with the combo, I easily stay full until lunch.

What I like to call "breakfast rice". I hate rice pudding as a dessert, but I often make a form of it for breakfast. Take leftover rice. Mix in milk and/or yogurt of choice. Add cinnamon, dried fruit, nuts. I often make up a big batch at the beginning of the week and put a serving in a small container and eat it when I get to work. Works great with quinoa too. You can also mix in flax or chia meal if you want extra fibre (if you're like me and C is your problem and not D!)

Crustless mini quiches are pretty easy to make and you can pop a couple out every day to heat up.  I don't have a recipe on hand, but easy to find online.

Eggs, nearly every morning. 

 

I sometimes make buckwheat banana pancakes with apple cider instead of milk or water. Soooo good.

 

Scrambled eggs with onion is standard. Sometimes I melt Daiya in them (cheese substitute), sometimes hot sauce, sometimes ketchup, sometimes mushrooms, peppers and/or tomato (I would have tomato more but partner hates it), curry them sometimes with ground and fresh coriander and cumin. Fried in olive oil or coconut oil or leftover grease from some meat I've had recently. 

 

I would eat bacon regularly but since I moved and I cannot find a source of it where the preservatives in it don't give me a rash. I recently found some gluten-free turkey sausages at Costco; 2 boxes were gone in less than a week and no itchy rash!

    • Hi guys. It's me Jenny 😊I feel like I post every other day with problems or questions. Well I'm here again. I have this problem with my left leg (in particular) at night going numb it wakes me up in the middle of me sleeping and is difficult to fall back to sleep. It's not my bed mattress, it's not the location on how I sleep. I don't know what it is. It only happens at night. The neurologist said I was sleeping on my spine wrong because I sometimes end up on my back wrong! Happens just as much on my side. Don't know if this is celiacs related damage or something else my quality of sleep sucks! Any one experience this? Also I have a mysterious pain that started in my neck atleast 2 years ago got use to it but over the summer I noticed there was pain (unbearable) on the shoulder generating down to the wrist on one side. Any one know what this could be. My doctor diagnosed arthrits but I'm only 30
    • I have been gluten free for about 7 months. I had a check with my gastroenterologist at 4 months post endoscopy, and asked him to check my thyroid, iron, vit D and Vitamin B12 levels. They told me all were fine (which I found surprising, but I take vitamins). Shortly after that, my hair started to fall out like crazy. At first I thought it might be due to an accidental glutening in mid Sept, but it is still falling out. I finally did a hair count after yesterdays shower - 919 strands!  Thank goodness I (had) thick hair, but its getting noticeable. Coincidentally, yesterday I noticed bruising on my arms & don't remember hitting anything, but I remember getting bumped by someone. Could my iron change that fast? I'm looking for answers. Yes I use gluten free shampoo & product, but I dont know if my hairdressers shampoo is gluten-free. I only go there once a month though. Any ideas would be much appreciated! 
    • Just wanted to revive this thread with an update. My daughter's appetite/calorie intake is slightly better these days, especially in the morning--though overall I'd say that she usually still has to eat deliberately rather than out of true hunger. The main problem is that she still feels terrible most evenings. She often can barely tolerate dinner some nights (we don't force it, and she eats enough at breakfast/lunch/snack that she can do without major evening calories). She describes it as a general malaise, "like when you have a fever and you feel a little nauseous and bad all over, not really hurting in one specific place." No diarrhea, cramping, or other specific GI symptoms. It seems much more related to time of day than to anything in particular that she's eating. She's still eating no oats. She has a relatively low-lactose diet--a little milk in her morning smoothie (that doesn't seem to affect her at all), doesn't like yogurt, occasional hard cheese that would be low in lactose already. Her diet doesn't vary a lot right now. She uses ginger chews and ginger tea. We're exploring probiotics and did take them a few times, but her celiac specialist warned that some probiotics are grown on a gluten-containing medium and we are awaiting a list of approved probiotics from her nurse.  We are aware that there is probably an anxiety component--she's definitely anxious--but we also don't want to discount her symptoms after all those years of thinking she had a "nervous tummy" when it was really celiac. Does anyone have other insights or suggestions to help with evenings? thanks!
    • My daughter also loves to make ginger bread house every Christmas. I buy this gluten-free kit every December from a gluten free bakery called Sensitive Sweets.   They ship the kit to our house. http://www.sensitivesweets.com/holiday-items/gluten-free-vegan-gingerbread-house-kit
    • We are going to try to make our own this year, but I've seen some great gingerbread houses made out of graham crackers. There are plenty of gluten-free graham crackers out there--Pamela's are nice and sturdy for building! If you make your own, the nice thing is that you don't have to worry whether it tastes good.   https://www.happinessishomemade.net/make-graham-cracker-gingerbread-houses/   https://gfjules.com/recipes/gluten-free-gingerbread-house-how-to/ https://www.glutenfreebaking.com/how-to-make-a-gluten-free-gingerbread-house/
