Most ‘traditional’ breakfast options like cereal contain a lot of gluten, sugar and offer little protein and nutritional value.
So here are a few gluten free breakfast ideas to get you started.
- Eggs – boiled, omelette, scrambled, poached. The options are endless. Add some spinach, peppers and avocados for extra nutrients and you can always add some gluten free bread for some extra oomph!
- Porridge – make with gluten free oats and top with cinnamon, flax seeds, berries and nuts. I always crave porridge when it’s cold, wet and generally a bit miserable out.
- Smoothies – Spinach, almond milk, 1/2 frozen banana, handful of berries, flaxseeds, cinnamon and a scoop of protein powder (optional). Or try a green smoothie.
- Yoghurt – Total greek yogurt topped with a chopped banana, berries, flax and sunflower seeds.
- Home-made granola. Easy to make and stores well. I prefer to make this as the store bought versions tend to have a lot of added sugar.
- Gluten free bread – Genius do a great range. Top with an egg or peanut butter for an extra protein hit (try the no added salt variety).
- Frittatas. Make a big batch and eat the left overs for breakfast. They are portable so easy to take into work.
