Eating gluten free can be challenging. Trying to come up with meals that are tasty and contain no gluten can be a real problem. I find that breakfast can be worst of all. The body needs fuel to burn until lunch, but eating too much can make you feel sluggish. This balancing act is tough enough without adding gluten intolerance to the mix. Below are five delicious choices that make breakfast a meal that you will want to eat and will give you energy all the way till lunch.
You can add your favorite choice of sweetener to any of these, if you desire. Agave nectar or honey is a great choice if you prefer to eat more natural foods.
Blend together a cup of almond milk, three generous tablespoons of fat free Greek yogurt. Clean one cup of strawberries and add to the mixture in the blender and pulse a few times, leaving the strawberries in larger pieces. If you don't like the larger chunks, then blend until completely smooth.
Toast a piece of gluten free bread and place on a plate. Scramble a large egg with mushrooms, peppers and onion. Place egg over the toast and sprinkle with shredded cheese and microwave to melt the cheese. Serve with slices of apple. You can also use a toasted corn tortilla instead of gluten free bread, if you prefer.
You can take these meals and mix them up to make them different. Use different fruits, use different types of nuts, or use another type of hot cereal. A little creativity goes a long way when your meals have to be gluten free.
