Any low carb gluten free breakfast cereals?

Anyone have any suggestions for breakfast. I just cannot do eggs. Thanks!

If you want to be sure you are not 'glutened' by accident, you only want to consume CERTIFIED gluten free oats. If the container does NOT say that, you don't want to eat it.

When life happens, sometimes you NEED 'Plan C'...

I second that! I made sure to get gluten free oats, and even then, I reacted to about the fourth time I ate them.

I can live without oats...you can make a cereal using flaxmeal and ground/chopped nuts too...just add a little water, a little protein whey powder and it's pretty good stuff.

I probably only eat eggs once a week...I'll eat fried ham, bacon, sausage, etc. with no eggs.

Breakfast foods...

Late to the game but I second only consume certified oats .. often oats can be stored and processed in the same facilities with other glutinous grains.

As for breakfast .. well you don't need to eat "breakfast" foods you can eat anything that's food even just veggies lol

But I've seen pancakes made low carb (and gf), muffins, a flax seed porridge (llike cream of wheat)... some are pretty tasty.

(I love eggs so it's a no brainer for me

I agree with all of the above comments about choosing certified GF oats. I buy Bob's Red Mill (or something like that) ones because there is not much selection in my small town. Sometimes I also order stuff like that online.

I got this recipe from the Wheat Belly cookbook and even my family likes it.

Hot Cereal:
1/2 cup ground flaxseeds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes (or shredded)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (or sunflower seeds)
sprinkle of cinnamon to taste

Add 1/2 cup of coconut milk/almond milk/ whatever milk you drink and microwave for 1 minute. Top with 1/4 cup fresh berries if you like. Note you can substitute the nuts for any nuts/seeds you like. Same for the spice, you could use vanilla, nutmeg etc.

Nutritional Info (using unsweetened Almond milk and strawberries) per serving/recipe
641 calories
54.6 g fat
29.1 g carbs
20g fiber
14.6g protein

It's a bit higher carb than I want to have right now, but I could see myself enjoying this again once I'm in maintenance. I also think you could try eating only 1/2 of the recipe and see if it's filling enough to cut back on carbs and calories.

Another recipe from the Wheatbelly cookbook that I like is for granola that you can eat like cereal or put on top of yogurt. My non dieting friends said they thought it was "Amaze-balls" hahaha

1 cup raw cashew pieces
1 cup raw pumpkin seeds
1 cup slivered almonds
2 tbsp whole flaxseeds or chia seeds
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tbsp light olive oil (or oil of your choice, I like walnut oil)
1/4 cup sugar free hazelnut sweetener (or 1/2 cup of some sugar free sugar equivalent)

Preheat oven to 350 F

In a lg bowl combine cashews, pumpkin seeds, almonds, flaxseeds, coconut and cinnamon. Add oil and syrup and mix together.

Spread onto baking sheet 1/2inch thick.

Bake for 20 minutes, stirring once, or until golden.

Nutritional Information for 1/2 cup serving:
315 calories
9g protein
11g carbs
4g fiber
28g fat
10g sat. fat
13mg sodium

Even gluten free oats have avenin in them and this is a protein that is very similar to gluten and that many coeliacs react to.

Why not try flaked rice and cook that as a porridge instead?

I stay away from all oats as well as gluten. I just get major heartburn and reflux with wheat products and oats. Thanks Rose, now I know why. I will continue to stay away from that avenin protein.
