The Perky's Nutty Flax only has 5g of Protein in a 3/4 cup serving. It is gluten and nut free but if you can have nuts you could add some to get the protein level up. It has 7g of fiber. That is why I like to have it occasionally and also to use it to make cereal bars using almond butter.

Hi ILLINITEACHER52 and Everyone, I am looking for a gluten free high fibre cereal that tastes great, with at least 10 grams of protein. If the Nutty Cereal has this could you please let me know the brand name and the exact title. Also, if anyone else has found one, would you please post it here. Thank you.

hi, i made a post regarding breakfast that i've come up with that are higher in protein and lower in carbs and calories, it was a long post on the general forum on 6-8-08, if you get a chance look at it. it gives 3 different suggustions that also contain "normal breakfast foods" but of course GF products. also spoke with caompan that makes EAS Advant EDGE carb control and food out all the drinks are GF, they are 11oz ,110calories,3g fat,17g protein, and taste good no chalky taste. i love the strawberry ones. you can add fruit to them if you like, i keep mine chilled in the frig. so i grab them when i'm in a hurry!
Hi! I also like to make protein smoothies for mornings when I don't have time to fix anything more complex. I use pineapple juice as a base and add brewer's yeast (for B vitamins), egg white and rice protein powder, flax meal and banana and bluueberries. It really keeps me full until lunch. On mornings when I have more time I make a veggie omelet Or I make almond meal pancakes. Extra pancakes can be frozen and used later as wraps for sandwiches such as chicken salad. I have also just found Nutty Flax cereal. It is also a quick high fiber breakfast. (I liked the suggestions of things to add to butternut squash. That sounds wonderful!)
I have a few favorites , one is butternut squash mashed up with a taste of honey & cinnamon (extremly low cal) and a few sunflower seeds or almonds/rasins & cranberries in it. It is really good! I also love protein smoothies with rice milk, frozen berries, half a banana and protein powder (or flax seed) -- toss it all in the blender, you can also add Peanut butter or yogurt for a more filling breakfast :)
Hi, all. My name is Frances and I have been a diagnosed celiac since August 1999. I woke up 1/1/99 covered in hives and with chronic diarrhea. It took almost 9 months but I still consider myself one of the lucky ones.
Of course, now that I adhere (for the most part) to a gluten free diet, the pounds have gotten packed on. It is so hard to lose weight when you are female because you don't get as much food and then to add insult to injury -- gluten free products are usually higher in calories! A double whammy for a bulk eater like me. I try to eat well but . . . any and all ideas -- especially for quick but nutritional breakfasts -- would be greatly appreciated!
