My breakfast of choice these days is a large banana, lowfat fruit yogurt and a tall glass of skim milk. It's filling... has plenty of carbs to give you energy through lunch, is low fat and high in protein. An all-around winner!

So are berries, nuts and other fruits and veggies. Many berries have more fiber than whole grain products do. Some whole grain has 'double fiber' which is achieved by adding a fiber supplement to the bread, the same way it is added to a lot of cereals now. That is no better for you than taking a fiber supplement like Benefiber.

Whole grains are high in fiber.

The human body does not need grain carbs. The carbs in grains are used by the body the same way that crabs are used from fruits or veggies. There is nothing special in grains that you can not get from other plant based foods.

I have found a few delicious wheat free bread products: Udi's (the muffins!) and Bread's from Anna. The Breads from Anna are mixes that you add a few ingredients to and you can use them to make breads or muffins. I love their banana and pumpkin breads. They taste like regular things. Also,you can make breakfast burrito type things with corn tortillas. (Your body needs the grain carbs and it can be hard to get it in with Celiac's) Good luck

sardines and pilchards, or mackeral, it used to be very popular in past times to eat fish at breakfast, but seems to have fallen aside, but loads of protein and healthy fats

Smoothies make a good breakfast.

You can make them nutritionally balanced to suit your needs.

Mrs Bennett, if you just get through the first few days/week you will feel better when your body switches from buring carbs for fuel to burning fat.

I cut out wheat, and did NOT replace it with other grains, they aren't needed.

I get my carbs from fruits and veggies.

I tend to eat a lot of eggs for breakfast, yum! I scramble them all different ways. I use coconut milk in place of regular milk or water and a shot of hot sauce, very yummy.

You can make mini egg muffins, like mini frittatas. You ust scramble the eggs add the ingredients you like, shredded cheese, ham, veggies, turkey, whatever. Srpay a muffin tin, or line with foil cups, even distribute the egg mixture between the cups. Bake at about 350*F until firm, usually about 15 minutes. They are portable and delicious and can be made ahead.

My standard breakfast is 2 eggs scrambled, and a sausage patty.

Sometimes I have yogurt with berries. Berries are an EXCELLENT source of fiber. Half a cup of blueberries or raspberries has as much fiber as a slice of whole wheat bread!

I also eat leftovers from dinner for breakfast. There is no rule that says some foods are for breakfast and others are off limits. Just eat things you like. Sometimes I even eat steak for breakfast.

Frittatas (asparagus or broccoli or tomato) and oatmeal (with a great variety of dried, frozen or fresh fruit) are two options, depending on the time you have.

egg whites with veggies and bacon bits or lite ham. - can add cheese to make it more filling if you like, but I prefer some fruit on the side.

Thanks everyone for helping me clear out the brain clog.
Becky - yes, the carb fuel and fiber issue is one I should have mentioned. I have a hard time functioning the first couple days while my body is switching over from burning wheat.

cottage cheese, eggs, Rice Krispies, Special K(its a rice cereal), Rice Chex, oatmeal, also think of nontraditional breakfast. You can eat dinner for breakfast.

Are you looking for alternative grain products in place of the wheat, to help meet your carbohydrate and fiber needs???

I am allergic to wheat so usually for breakfast ill eat some fruit and yogurt and 2 hardboiled eggs. They also make gluten free cereals and waffles which are usually made with brown rice flour

I don't eat wheat either.
I don't know if you have a 'Trader Joe's' store close to you but they carry wheat free frozen waffles that are pretty good.
I also have a gluten/wheat-free pancake mix that I buy at a health food store. My favorite brand is 'Bob's Red Mill'.
There are lots of gluten/wheat free breads out there:
Check the following:

If you only have a problem with wheat and you are ok with gluten, you can look for spelt, kamut, rye breads.

I also use corn tortillas. There are so many options, you don't have to miss on diversity.

Wheat products and I don't get along. I can go without for all meals and snacks except for breakfast. I've been eating the same thing for two months now and am having a brain clog when it comes to thinking of wheat-free breakfast items. Anyone have any suggestions from their own kitchen? Thanks!
