What's For Breakfast Today?

536 posts in this topic

I know the topic of breakfast comes up a lot. I'm NOT asking for suggestions. I want this to be a thread like the "what's for dinner tonight" thread where we share what we ACTUALLY eat for breakfast every morning. Along the way we will probably get new suggestions, recipes and ideas by seeing what everyone eats.

Today I had half of a left over baked sweet potato. What did you have?

Sounds good! I need to walk to the grocery store and get some ingredients for dinner before it gets to hot out.

I've never had my grits sweet. One of these days I will have to try it. Ever since I had to give up dairy, grits are just not the same without lots of butter and cheese. I usually just put salt and pepper on them now.

I never ate grits before (I was always a oatmeal girl), so they are new for me. I don't do dairy either :( and so, I just followed someone's suggestion about maple syrup. They taste pretty yummy! :)

Hey, whatever works for you! I have trouble motivating myself to eat a good breakfast. I'm just never hungry in the morning. If I don't eat breakfast I won't be hungry until around 10 or 11 AM. I'm hoping this thread will give me the motivation to eat better breakfasts.

I never get around to eating a "proper" breakfast early...whatever that is. I'd rather have toast and then brunch around 10:30 or 11 a.m., which I'll probably do tomorrow as I have an appt. shortly after noon. So then it'll probably be bacon and eggs or Jimmy D's Skillets (I really like the sausage variety best). And it is gluten-free.

Are you talking to me? I do not have any formal celiac diagnosis because I went gluten free prior to doing testing. I do use the term celiac to describe myself, but I also have a wheat allergy. The wheat allergy was found somewhat by accident a year and a half after I went gluten-free. I had allergy testing done because I started having anaphylactic reactions to milk products. I figured I might as well have tests for everything at once. They found a mild IgE wheat allergy--mild meaning it doesn't make my throat close up, but I do get hives from lotions with wheat germ oil in them. The reason I also still insist I have celiac and not just a wheat allergy is because many of my symptoms prior to going gluten-free were very typical of malabsoption and auto-immune in nature. I went gluten-free/SF/DF out of desperation as at the time my hair was falling out, I was anemic, my joints hurt, I had random muscle spasms/muscle pain, unexplained seizures, memory problems, unexplained rash, and I was sick to my stomach no matter what I ate (or so I thought--I used to eat a lot of toast and crackers because I was told those "bland" foods would help my nausea). I had these and many other symptoms that resolved themselves on a gluten-free diet. This dietary response along with my family medical history of other related auto-immune diseases and intestinal cancer leads me to believe I should have been diagnosed celaic. but of course to do that I would need to consume gluten again. I tell people in my real life that I have celiac and I do believe I have celiac. Some on this board would say I have non-celaic gluten intolerance. I don't mind if that's what they want to call it but I find in real life people think an intolerance is not that serious. I want people to take my need to eat gluten-free seriously and I want to spread awareness about celiac disease so more people that are suffering can get tested and get help. I do try to explain the difference between celiac and wheat allergy if asked and I consider that I have both. So all that is a long answer to say, I consider myself a combo pack. :D

This morning I made breakfast cookies for the girls and I. They tasted a little like oatmeal cookies, but was made with rice chex.

My almost 5 year old has gotten very interested in cooking and baking since we cut out a bunch of foods so we got her a kid's cookbook and it was one of the recipes in there, after a bunch of adaptations (I guess we used it more as a guideline.)

Yes, I was talking to you. Thank you for the explanation. You really are Mizz combo pack! I have a cousin who tested negative, but displays ALL Celiac sign and symptoms. I cannot convince her to use the term Celiac in the real world, and people do not take her seriously. It breaks my heart. The real world needs a specific recognizable term like Celiac in order to believe a person really has a serious problem.

I fumbled around for several months using the term "wheat problem"....sheesh, and confusing people. I was happy when my Doctor told me I have a wheat allergy. It was like I needed permission to say it, and finally had validation.

It's nice to hear someone else who has the same reactions to wheat as me. I feel alone quite a bit because my symptoms are so different from Celiacs. I do share a few symptoms though.

I struggled for a while with what to call myself and I experienced many of the same confused looks on people's faces. My current dr is great and says I'm most likely celiac or gluten intolerant and whatever term I want to use is fine with her (she won't write it on my chart because of possible insurance issues though and has me down as wheat allergic only). She admits I'm more educated on celiac than she is (I have taught her a few things by giving her articles to read, etc.) and she has even diagnosed a few people with celiac via blood tests. Anyway, I do sometimes just say wheat allergy when ordering food (that I know won't have barely or rye or oats as an issue) because it is more recognized and "allergy" is usually taken seriously as well.

Back to breakfast-- I had my bowl of fruit but decided I didn't want any toast. I'm drinking a mid-mornign Throwback Pepsi and planning dinner. :P

    • Celiac disease is not diagnosed by symptoms alone. Why?  There are over 300 of them and many, if not all, overlap with other autoimmune issues or other illnesses.  Learn more about proper testing: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I am formally diagnosed.  My hubby is not.  His mis-informed doctors told him 16 years  ago to give up gluten.  It worked, but now we do not really know if he has celiac disease or not.  He will be the first to say that I get WAY more support from family, friends and medical.   I am sorry at your doctor gave you the wrong advice.  Now, you must decide if testing is worth pursuing.  I wish you well.  
    • I am considering having my brother - who inherited Daddy's power woodworking tools - plane down my cutting boards and sand the edges enough so I can keep them. The spoons and soup stirring things though will have to be decorative. Breaks my heart. I've had good luck with Merle Norman cosmetics. They have a listing of things that are gluten-free that has helped me. My local store owner was able to get the list and knows what I can use and what I can't.
    • While you could very well be vitamin/mineral deficient, you could also have issues with your thyroid.  Autoimmune thyroid is common with .......autoimmune celiac disease.  Your doctor should order a full thyroid panel, including thyroid antibodies.   Your blood sugar should also be checked (autoimmune diabetes).  I am not saying you have these issues, but these AI issues are common with celiac disease.  In fact, you can develop or have more than one AI issue.   If I feel a very strong need to nap, I know my thyroid is off and my doctor should be notified.  A simple blood test usually verifies that an adjustment to my thyroid replacement is needed.   That said, you are in the healing stages of celiac disease.   Eat healthy and include plenty of fats to keep you satiated.  Try to avoid processed foods.  Make sure that gluten-free diet is varied and full of veggies.  Get plenty of rest.  Just listen to your body.  Soon you will feel much better.  
    • Hi and welcome Can you tell us a little about your diet? What are you eating on a typical day? You may find that some simple switches in food choices can deliver more energy and fewer spikes and crashes. This is something that receives too little attention, particularly from the medical community. It can come as a huge shock to the system and as the implications become apparent its easy to feel overwhelmed. This certainly happened to me and many others here so first do know that you're not alone. You are currently grieving believe it or not and you will be going through the stages of grief.  Second, although it may not feel it now, it WILL get better and you will adjust and adapt as you get used to the diet and start focusing on what you can still do rather than what you can't.  In the meantime, this is a good place to vent and share those feelings as they are perfectly natural and understandable and whilst not always helpful,  they are a part of you and a part of the healing process. Go easy on yourself, this is very early days. You are young, which is good news, it means you will heal sooner and you will adapt quicker and there's lots of good things on the way for you as your body gets a rest from the gluten that's been holding you back.  All the best! Matt
