Considering breakfast has been recognized as the most important meal of the day, I figured I would compose a post about breakfast ideas and options that cater to persons unable to consume gluten. I personally am intolerant to gluten, dairy and eggs, so the options I suggest cater more than one dietary restriction.
I am a person of routine, so I eat the same thing for breakfast everyday. Boring, I know, but I really enjoy my breakfast, so I have no issue with ingesting it daily.
If you get bored with food easily, my breakfast options are flexible and can be easily adhered to your palate preferences.
Each morning, I have two packets of Quaker’s Original Instant Oatmeal. I put the contents of both packets into a bowl, and add water until the oats have risen approximately two inches. I then add one tablespoon of peanut butter, though any type of nut butter would work quite well with this dish. I microwave the oats and the peanut butter for two minutes, and after it has cooled slightly I add a healthy sprinkle of cinnamon powder. From there, I throw in a handful of fresh berries (any type of berry will work) as well as one banana chopped into rough chunks. To finish it off, I cut up one Enjoy Life Mixed Berry Chewy Bar, which are free of milk, nuts, soy and gluten, and a drizzle of Walden Farms Pancake Syrup, which is free of sugar, calories and fat.
This hearty breakfast bowl along with my green smoothie every morning keeps me filled until lunch, and as I said, it can be easily adjusted to better suit your food preferences.
Another option for breakfast that I enjoy when I do feel the need to switch things up is toasted gluten free bread (I use Udis) topped with peanut butter, banana, and the Walden Farms Pancake syrup.
