Help with breakfast ideas please

Oct 29, 2016 5:28 PM

Hi everyone. I hope everyone is having a good weekend.
I was wondering if anyone can help me with breakfast ideas. I'm getting really really sick of the same thing every day. All I am to be able to come up with for breakfast is some sort of smoothie or basic oatmeal.
I can't have a lot of food items and have to limit many others. I need something I can eat on the go and that won't go bad quickly since it takes me a solid hour to eat breakfast or it all comes back up.
Can't have eggs, sugar, dairy, oils, caffeine. limited on fruit and nuts.
Sausage, bacon and ham all have sugar in them. If i have a smoothie I'm not to have any more fruit for the day.

A nice breakfast thays easy and doesnt have all that stuff. Hmmm.
Well if you cook tomatoes and mushrooms in a frying pan and put it on toast, thats really nice.

Natural peanut butter sandwich

I really should make some bread.
I'll have to try tomato mushroom toast on a weekend. i don't think that'll be good after sitting for 30 minutes while i travel to work, if i am even able to get up early enough to make it.

I like your bread idea you could make some type of muffin or loaf. Also avacado on toast is not to bad. Also if your gonna cook or bake. You could make a granola bar if u csnt use honey maybe try agave as a binding agent.

Oh this is so up my food challenge alley .. seeds yes? Wheat? Soy?

I think I saw a savoury steel cut oats instead of sweet ... Good reviews. Vegan under pressure maybe ... I can hunt down the recipe if you want.

Quinoa makes a good porridge?,

I've done chickpea flour (besan flour) with spices like a scrambled egg ... Could make up in muffin tins with veg and nutritional yeast and have it ready for an English muffin.

I've Pinterest'd granola made with Apple sauce ... Haven't tried it yet.

I make fake bacon with pressed tofu sheets... It's pretty tasty.

Mix of potatoes and veg? Breakfast hash .. fresh tomatoes on top.
Not a huge fan of tofu scramble but you could throw some bits into a hash.

Pumpkin seeds are totally a win.

I've seen shredded potatoes done in a waffle maker .,. Always thought that would be good.

I used to make these .. Oh can't remember the name. It had flax seed in it, dried fruit and honey for the sweetness. Its along the lines of a granola bar. I made them in those muffin tins. Would take one with me to eat after physical therapy. Am not at home right now burly I can look up the recipes.

You guys are awesome.
Seeds are good, sometimes send and nuts are hard to eat whole because of jaw and teeth pain.
Soy is fine. I like Edamame. I'm a little scared of tofu because it's processed and packaged but if you have any brand recommendations I'm willing to give it a try.
Wheat is also good. just can't have it every day.
I've never successfully made a good quinoa dish.
Honey and pure maple syrup are the only sweeteners i can have.
I'd love some recipes or links to recipes. That would be awesome

I made quinoa sliders from a recipe in the newspaper & my husband even liked them. Can't remember if I saved it or not. I have good luck with the light colored quinoa, gotobef, but tried the red & it turned out like a large lump of concrete.
The fresh veg & fruit quinoa bowls are yummy.😊🍅. Hope you find the right food for your sensitivities.💖

I love steel cut oats and I love quinoa.. I'll have to look up some new recipes.. Yummy!! (I think I'm getting hungry. I haven't eaten in three days... LOL!!) 😊😜

What about a cauliflower crust roll up w/ veggies and things you can have.

Oct 30, 2016 3:10 AM

Love to have cauliflower instead of rice if I make stuffed peppers or use quinoa and salsa as a side dish with grilled chicken and some baked veggies

I make breakfast cookies that probably aren't really all that breakfasty because they have cocoa powder. It's oats, honey, peanut butter (you could probably change this out for something else), cocoa powder and I add nuts or dried cranberries and stuff like that. You don't cook them. You just throw them in the fridge to harden. I don't know if that will work but I can give the proper recipe if it does work for you.

If you wouldn't mind sharing that would be wonderful. Thanks

I've recently tried a 3 ingredient breakfast cookie with 2 small mashed bananas, quick oats and sultanas.....you could use raisins or sugar free chocolate chips, I personally prefer sultanas tho!...I soaked the sultanas in hot water for about half an hour so they don't dry out when cooking (you could use apple/orange juice or anything else that you might like....maybe tea?). Mix it all up, the batter is quite wet but if you think it's too wet add more quick oats, then place on a greased or lined baking tray and in the oven at gas mark 5 for 15 minutes. This should make about 12 cookies and I think 3 or 4 cookies are a serving (depends on how big you make them).
The cookies will still be very soft, they won't go hard like normal sweet cookies and they'll only last a couple of days in an airtight container.
Personally wasn't overly keen on the basic recipe so I added half a teaspoon of vanilla extract and cinnamon or you could add honey as well (I'm going to try honey next time I make them)
You can adapt the recipe to what you'd like....it's all trial and error to find what you prefer

That banana pay cookie looks wonderful. I'll have to try them sometime. Do you know what temperate in a conventional stove that would work out to? I don't have gas at my place.

No bake chocolate breakfast cookies (makes 7-9 cookies)
1 - combine 1/2 cup peanut butter, 2 tbs honey, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Microwave for 30 seconds and stir until fully mixed. Can microwave in 15 second intervals if more is required.
2 - add 1 cup rolled oats. It technical calls for 1/2 cup oats and 1/2 cup rice crispies but I'm too cheap to buy the gluten free ones so use all oats. Mix this all together.
3 - add 2 tbs cocoa powder and mix well.
4 - add in any other ingredient such as dried cranberries, chocolate chips, nuts etc. And mix
5 - roll into balls. Pack them well so they aren't too crumbly. Place in fridge or freezer.

Sometimes I make a kind of enchilada type breakfast too. I mix ground beef ( you can leave this out if you want), black beans, quinoa, corn, diced tomatoes, onion, peppers and spices. I usually make a huge batch and freeze some. It's good by itself or in tacos, stuffed peppers, on mashed potatoes. It's pretty versatile. The original recipe put it in a casserole dish with cheese on top but I'm dairy free.

OMG.. it's the dueling breakfast menu!! I love it. 😜🤗

When I had my Lap Band installed I only had a protein shake.

Nov 01, 2016 8:18 PM

Ive also got vega protein shake powder to put with almond milk if I'm in a super hurry.
I can't have dairy so I haven't found a different one that tastes better and is cheaper that doesn't contain whey.
