Haven't had breakfast yet, and its 12:15 my time. Was trying to think of something besides the Barbaras Cornflakes I've been munching and bringing in a baggy to work. Just remembered I have leftover rice from yesterday's dinner, so maybe Ill have that with a little fruit and/or maybe a Hebrew National Beef Frank. Have a cup of tea I am drinking now, put sugar in it because I gave my neighbor all my Splenda after I read the ingredients. This is my 4th actually sticking to a completely gluten free diet (I was only diagnosed and told to do this last week). Slept late today, so I better get off my computer seat and eat and plan my first trip to Henry's Market since I got new gluten-free eyes!

I'm a bit behind because I just returned from my trip to Mali.
I vary my breakfast. I make gf museli from a variety of gf cereals, nuts, seeds etc then use 3/4 c of mix with 1/2 to 2/3 c plain or flavoured yogurt. I prefer the plain with a little sugar added. Fewer calories than the the flavoured varities. This is a favourite when car travelling.
Sometimes I have a commercial gf waffle with an egg (cooked in a fat free pan) on top and a bit of cheese to stick the two together. I also make gf waffles & pancakes that can double as sandwich bread.
A favourite breakfast item is bread made from Kinnikinick Bread & Bun Mix (3pts mix:2pts water) which I add ground flax and toasted sesame seeds. It makes a great bread that immitates a light brown bread. Never falls apart. When I make it in my hamburger bun pan, I eat the buns by themselves without anything. I carry them as snacks in a small baggie.
Because bread was often the only breakfast served on my Mali trip, I took Quinoa flakes to which I only needed to add boiling water and let them sit for a min or two to have them cook, then I added a bit of sugar and sometimes jam for flavour. I had to add extra water to make them less like porridge. I've done this before when travelling overseas.
Sassibrix - I noticed you mentioned barley in your breakfast cereal. Hope this was by error. Barley is not GF and celiacs should not be eating it.

Thanks for the suggestions everyone! I hit amazon this morning and ordered some Bob's Red Mill products. Will hit Walmart tomorrow to look for the waffles.

Freezing tofu will give it a spongy texture which allows it to absorb other flavors more easily. I find that this does not work with some of the tofus that come boxed for the shelf - only works with the refrigerated variety.

Wrinkled Was Not One of the Things I Wanted to Be When I Grew up.

Sassibrix - I think that tofu recipe sounds so good! I try not to eat soy because it interferes with my thyroid - not exactly sure how - either with eating too soon after taking meds or at all, so I don't go there. Why do you freeze it first, then thaw again?

I think it's interesting how we have multiple food allergy issues.

Katie - I find your starvation rather humorous? I wonder if you found more protein for breakfast if that wouldn't help -- oh, you had chicken, so that did help! ha ha

We do have to be unconventional sometimes. I will sometimes put deli turkey (check ingredients!) on an open faced toasted Van's gf flax waffle. Have I mentioned Van's are available at WalMart - probably Target also? Cheap. WalMart also lists their foods as gf if they are gf (under ingredients)! It's such a help.

For ideas also try: glutenfreegoddess.blogspot.com She has luscious looking and tasting recipes. I would love for her to be my personal chef! (Hope I'm not being redundant).

I like Mary's Gone Crackers flax crackers with cream cheese and tomatoes. Also visit celiac.com for links to gf groceries, and try Amazon, too - they offer free shipping sometimes.

...arms of your chair. lol

I've been having plain yogurt with fruit and honey; and yesterday morning I was so hungry that the arms of my chair started to look pretty tasty. I was almost frantic with hunger. So I went and stood in front of the fridge with the door open and finally settled on eating leftovers from supper. Chicken and veggies, baked with some cheese on top. That quenched the starvation. And then I had to think of what to eat for lunch....lol
It's a challenge...and having just discovered my wheat intolerance, my pantry still contains a lot of forbiddens. I am slowly getting it all given away. Am going to check out wholefoodsmarket.com to begin restocking with things I actually can eat. Breakfast has always been a challenge...don't like cereal and don't like eggs... Peanut butter toast was my stand-by. Will have to find something else to eat the peanut better on.

Your slow cooker recipe sounds wonderful, but no milk for me. I too found out I have other allergies, including eggs, dairy of all kinds, some fish and nuts, and a few other things. Without eggs, toast, or milk for breakfast, it made for a few interesting morning meals, including leftovers from the night before. I often make a stir fry with fresh vegetables and tofu. But I've come to love quinoa and Bob's Red Mill breakfast cereal also. But I make my own many times, to include quinoa (not flakes), millet, amaranth, toasted kasha, ground flaxseed, brown rice, barley, sunflower seeds, dried fruit, ground nuts of choice, and whatever other grains we happen to have. I make a very large batch and have a half cup in the mornings with maple syrup, cinnamon and fresh fruit if available.

I also make baked tofu for breakfast and have it as if it was French toast. I first freeze the extra firm tofu, thaw, slice, then marinate in orange juice mixed with water, a little maple syrup, garlic and balsamic vinegar. After a day, take out a slice or two, and bake.

I like Bob's GF Mighty Hot cereal also. Strangely, I'd never tried grits until a year or so before my dx. I LOVED them --- there's some irony there? Anyway, here's something I concocted trying to get 100 cals of carbs into my day prior to working out:

In a slow cooker overnight I'll make a hot cereal with whatever pantry items sound good. It's a mock oatmeal recipe made with brown rice. I've added such things as:

raisins, dates, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds, walnuts, cinammon, nutmeg, lots of chopped apples, flaxmeal. Whatever you fancy.

I wake up to a nice smell. I also add butter and Carnation milk.

On a different note, I just did a food allergen test and found out I'm somewhat "allergic" to dairy and rice! I need to rotate every 5th day for those. Oy!

Here are some things I eat:

Smoothee:
Mix all together in blender. Delicious,
quick, and high protein.
1/2 c. cottage cheese (lf)
1/4 c. nf, plain yogurt
1/4 c. blueberries (stawberries,
raspberries, ....)
1/2-1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. agave nectar (or Splenda)
whey protein, if desired (1/2-1 scoop)
liquid, such as crystal light to cover
ice cubes, if desired
Van's Original gluten free waffles with yogurt or
cottage cheese and fruit.
Yogurt (plain, nf mixed with sweeteners and
flavorings as desired) plus a few slices
low salt ham.

These are just ideas. I'm not too fond of eggs and only eat them several times per week. I use the smoothees often, as they are quick and satisfying, and the flavor varies with my mood. I keep several kinds of berries in my freezer.

The whey protein I use is from Designs for Health, and it was recommended by my doc.

With God, nothing is impossible!

Oh, thanks Hikingchic!
I've been looking for something that might taste a bit like Cream of Wheat... it's one of the few foods that I genuinely miss!

I've been putting more variety in my breakfasts, sometimes it is enforced more by what is left in the pantry. emoticon
I don't have cereal nearly as often anymore. I do really miss my morning oatmeal.

Some of my breakfasts:
-Mesa Sunrise flakes from Nature Path. I buy it in the large bag, that helps with the price some.
-toasted GF bagel w/ natural peanut butter, easier when eatting on the go
-egg on toasted GF english muffin
-Bob's Redmill Mighty Tasty Hot Cereal: reminds me of cream of wheat, but I think it is even tastier.
-grapefruit
-quinoa flakes: I have to get used to the texture, its pretty mushy after being cooked

Breakfast is our toughest meal to come up with too. A few things we've found that we actually LIKE eating for breakfast are:

* Envirokids' gluten-free peanut butter or chocolate cereal. (my son loves these, when I give in... to sweet for me though)
* Homemade pancakes - use 3-4 GF flours at once, and they don't have TOO much of a funny taste
* Yogurt with almonds & a piece of fruit
* Homemade GF muffins (we like pumpkin & carrot - the spices help dull the funny flours) with hot cocoa or tea
* GF rice cakes with peanut butter & a piece of fruit
and... my son will have a scoop of cottage cheese sprinkled with sunflower seeds, and a handful of baby carrots with a cup of apple juice some mornings. Don't ask me, he invented it emoticon

(can't believe there isn't a search feature to see if this has been discussed -- or I can't find it anyway)

Breakfast of gluten free champions... what is it? I get awfully tired of eggs and I understand that eating cooked eggs too often can lead to an allergy. I alternate with low fat yogurt, strained overnight (I like it thick and greek style without the premium price emoticon , with a dab of honey to sweeten it. Sometimes a bit of fruit. I know there are all sorts of gluten free bread/bagel/english muffin alternatives now but I kinda think that if the carbs won't kill me the cost will! So they are a rare treat - I don't often have them around. Oh and the GF waffles are okay.

But mostly, its eggs, yogurt, eggs, yogurt. I wondered if I was missing any good ideas for a GF breakfast that is nutritious.
