I eat brown rice bowl - I put a recipe on the recipe site. Its great - brown rice with craisins and walnuts touch of brown sugar although sometimes lately been using honey. If I don't eat that I eat eggs and fruit.
I use the recipe in the Better Homes and Garden Cook book but substitute a gluten free flour mix for the flour and reduce the amount of liquid, just adding enough to make the batter the right consistency.
I get my rice tortillas from my local health food store. If any of you get Mambo Sprout coupons, the rice tortillas were in their most recent coupon book.
What I do is make a big batch of pancakes or sourdough waffles on Saturday and freeze them, then pull them out a few at a time during the week and eat one with turkey sausage or turkey bacon. Its either that or oatmeal with flax meal and almonds. On a busy day, I will make smoothies with protein powder.
RICE CHEX, VANILLA RICE MILK AND A BANANA OR 1/2 CUP OF BLUEBERRIES. OR 2 VAN'S GLUTEN FREE WAFFLES AND JIMMY DEAN TURKEY SAUSAGE
WISH I COULD HAVE COFFEE!!!
Grammy Pat So what are you waiting for? What do you have to lose. Your insecurities they try to alter you. But you know you're made for more- so don't be afraid to move. Your faith is all it takes and you can walk on the water to.
What I normally eat for breakfast Is a bowl of Rice Chex cereal with a little bit of Cocoa Pebbles cereal. (Both are gluten free) with rice milk. A cup of coffee and a banana. The Rice Chex cereal just seems bland to me, Pebbles is to sweet so combining them is a good mix. Some times I also use the Dora Explorer cereal which is also gluten free and a little to sweet for my tastes
This site really makes you do your homework on foodstuffs, doesn't it? Before I joined spark, I never knew anything about Buckwheat! Did buy some buckwheat porridge, and I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised. This will now be one of my favourites for breakfast.

I eat Bob's Red Mill's "Might Tasty Hot Cereal" with some maple sugar and milk mixed in, two scrambled eggs, and of course my coffee.
Sometimes I have buckwheat instead.
Anyone eat oatmeal despite the usual fear of the oats being contaminated? Usually instant oatmeal doesn't bother me at all, but I tried some steel cut oats thinking they'd be pretty good and healthy, and it definitely bugged me. Maybe the one brand was contaminated and the other wasn't.
I get the rice tortillas at Trader Joe's. They are the same as a national brand (maybe Food for Life?), but with the TJ's label. They're okay for making quesadillas or making a sandwich in a pinch, but they don't work for burritos.
I try to get a lot of protein for breakfast too. I'll often have a couple of Trader Joe's chicken sausages and a piece of fruit, or half an apple with a TBS of almond butter, or an omelette with turkey bacon, onions and red peppers. This morning I had some healthy deli turkey on a rice tortilla.
Those of you who have soy smoothies, please don't overdo the soy - it's really not that good for you and can mess with your hormones. Everything in moderation!
Oh, I forgot to mention that I put ground flaxseed in my smoothies too. (great minds, eh?)
That brings to mind another question for you all: do you have a problem getting enough fiber in your diets? I find I am always too low and look for ways to increase it throughout the day. Any suggestions?

Oh, that all sounds so good! I am a protein in the morning gal or I crash big time by 10:30. I love sausage. Maybe I should make up a homemade batch this weekend. (drool)
When I was diagnosed with allergies nearly 20 years ago (yikes!) I ate all kinds of weird things for breakfast. I was 17 years old and I remember vividly eating a salad with tuna for breakfast one morning and crying (literally) because I just wanted to eat a "normal" breakfast. I don't know why I didn't just eat eggs and sausage! Lol!
I like having a real "hearty" (probably not all heart-healthy) breakfast! Bacon and Egg GF Sandwich with fruit on side Maize porride with GF (homemade) beef sausage Muffins of some sort with fruit/nuts etc On rare occasions, I treat myself to a Fruit/Nut "Cereal"bar (gf) Actually, whatever is in the house, that could go for breakfast, and even if its not the norm, I make it work.
