5 Delicious Gluten Free Breakfasts

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.

#1

Strawberry Walnut Toast

Toast gluten free bread, and lightly spread with sugar free strawberry jam.  Clean and chop a cup of strawberries and sprinkle generously on top of the jam.  Chop walnuts and sprinkle lightly on top of strawberries.

#2

Berry Smoothie

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.

#3

Fruity Nutty Yogurt

Mix together one cup of Greek yogurt and one teaspoon of sugar free jam (any flavor), a quarter cup of sliced strawberries, a quarter cup of blueberries, and two generous tablespoons of sliced almonds.  Mix together and enjoy.

#4

Spicy Oatmeal

One cup of oatmeal, add pinches of cinnamon, and nutmeg.  Stir in a cup of milk and a quarter cup of toasted almonds

#5

Breakfast Toast-tada

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.

  1. Thankfully, I don’t belong to the 1% of people who are gluten-intolerant. However, I can add a few to your list. Cornmeal mush with sugar and cream. Bacon, eggs, and hashbrowns (ham or sausage can be subbed for the bacon). Bananas, sugar, and cream. ‘Kitchen sink’ omelet. Rice, honey, and fresh strawberries.
