Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I really need some hot cereal for mornings now that its starting to get cold out. What do you recomend? I want to stay away from the gluten free oats for now since they are so expensive. What hot cereals have you tried and are they actually good?

BRM oats: $0.13/oz

BRM millet grits: $0.14/oz

BRM mighty tasty hot cereal $0.13/oz

Ancient Harvest quinoa flakes $0.43/oz

Nabisco Cream of Rice $0.19/oz

BRM cream of buckwheat $0.31/oz

(prices online at a.m.a.z.o.n)

Even gluten free, oats aren't all that expensive. You could probably make you're own cream of rice cereal by partially blending up a short grain rice, though it may take some time to cook.

Also, what about eggs and beans? Or a simple soup that you can heat up in the morning?

I love love love cream of rice. BRM mighty tasty hot cereal is pretty awesome too. I got my BRM oats on sale for less than a buck a pound. Oats don't have to be expensive.

I'll admit though, with oats or the BRM cereal my favorite way to have it was always with an over easy or sunny side egg on top. I'd break it open and let it get all runny all over then stir it all up. Sprinkly on some bacon and/or syrup. Yum! That doesn't fix your egg problem though. :P

It's not a cereal, but I've been having split peas for breakfast some days, just add butter & salt after cooking. They take about an hour to cook, so making it ahead might be a good idea to save time in the morning.

Thanks. I eat eggs almost every morning. I just needed something to break up the monotany. I found a few pancake recipies.

The Pamela's Pancake Mix is excellent. The cooked pancakes freeze well (separate with wax paper) so make a batch and eat some/freeze some. For a "sausage biscuit" fix, I will wrap a small pancake around a turkey sausage link. (I will make some of my pancakes on the small side so that I can do this.) My kids go through phases where they will take a pancake (can be for breakfast, lunch or dinner), warm it up, spread half with peanut butter and half with nutella.

Oh yes, frozen pancakes and muffins are a staple at our house. I make banana muffins )from almond meal) 8-dozen at a time and freeze them, the microwave them to either "just-not-frozen" or "steaming hot", depending on if it's for my toddler or me. :)

I freeze Gluten Free Pantry pancakes. I always make more than we can eat so I have some in the freezer. To re-heat, I stack 3 on a plate, microwave for a minute to a minute and a half and they are perfect.

I too like the Bob's Red Mill Mighty Tasty rice cereal - I make it with more water than it says to. I also mix in some ground flaxseed and an egg just as it finishes cooking (making sure the egg is cooked) and then walnuts and cranberries. I think I use 1/4 cup of cereal to about 1 cup of water. Yum ! Frozen berries make a great add in as well.

Oh- another hot breakie I like is a mix of brown rice & quinoa (keep some cooked in the fridge), about a cup full, with an egg and nuts and cranberries or raisins - nuked for about a minute & a half. It don`t look pretty but it is filling.

Is anyone doing Bob's oats? I tried soon after dx based on my GI's nutrionist advice (just 3/4 cup), but I just didn't feel well back then. I tried once more and still no good.

I am doing very well now, so I thought I would give it a try again.

My cholesterol situation is not good at all, and before dx, I managed to bring my numbers in line with a good low carb diet which included starting the day with

a good oatmeal/flax meal/cinnamon breakfast. It fills you up till lunch time too, so I would like to try again.

just wanted to see how many of us are trying gluten-free oats again.

I seem to have no problem with it but I waited until I was about 9 months gluten-free to try them. I like BRM gluten-free old-fashioned rolled oats and have it occasionally, not every day because I'm too lazy to cook it. :lol:

i'm quite fond of 2 poached eggs on Homemade gluten-free Toast in the mornings, and those are plenty warm to heat up during the cold winter months

I've recently been trying to have a little bit of the BRM gluten-free Quick Cook oats, but am having a little issue with them. I'm still trying to test it out to make sure. Not sure if it was the extra protein that is just wrecking my system or the oats.

I've been making it with water and Homemade Strawberry Jam

A Udi's muffin popped in the microwave for a few seconds also does the trick in a jiffy.

Hopes this gives you some ideas.

    • Sounds like you have a good doctor! http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/do-your-liver-enzymes-return-to-normal-after-going-gluten-free/ "...Elevated liver enzymes are one of the extra-intestinal signs of celiac disease, so patients with elevated liver enzymes should be tested for it. .."
    • Anybody have raised liver enzymes just before diagnosis. All my liver tests where fine except my ast level was very slightly raised. GP said it was of no concequence and is quite typical with celiacs before going gluten free. I have had celiacs now confirmed by blood test and biopsies. Just wondering if this is quite a normal thing.
    • My only symptom was slight nausea that lasted all day. I had a lot of mashed potato soup as it was easy on my insides (the mashed potatoes dissolve in the chicken broth). And I had smaller meals 6x per day. Easier on my insides to avoid very solid food. The nausea lessened and went mostly away in the first six months.
    • I still vote on removing dairy completely for 60 days. This could help in many ways Probiotics are helpful normally later on, but initially if she has damaged or leaky gut it could make the issues much worse. It works for some makes stuff worse for others. I keep going back to the dairy as it is common to cause a feeling of bloat, fullness, inflammation, leaky gut issues, etc. Try making or using nut based milks, heck one of my favorites and simplest ways is to blend a few tbsp of nut butter into water to make a nu milk drink. Your doing smoothies? Try adding 1/4-1/2 cup of almond butter to a water base blend  it first to get your starter base milk.  Adds a ton of good easy to digest calories if you use a nut butter, I love doing this with walnut butter, try it with her favorite nut butters.  Kite Hill makes some good heavy almond based cheeses you can find in most stores. I have some coconut milk blended soup recipes if you wish make something easy to drink and get in some good fats. Have a butternut curry, pumpkin curry, and one tI even made that taste like pumpkin pie.

      I posted a recipe the other day for a avocado icing, >.> You could make something up like this and she can just eat it by the spoon.
    • Hi, sorry to suggest removing yet another thing from the poor girl, but have you tried going completely milk free. So not just limiting lactose, but trialling a period with absolutely no dairy whatsoever?  Reason being, lactose intolerance is only one of the two possible milk issues, the other is casein intolerance. I spent a long time allowing myself small amounts if milk on basis that my stomach was ok, only to realise my issue was the casein not the lactose. That means complete avoidance.  May not be that, but a trial of completely avoiding it (substituting soya or almond based alternatives) would at least exclude it?  Best of luck to you both from all the way across the Atlantic matt
