Putting the Great in a Gluten-Free Breakfast

Waffles Gluten Free Breakfast

They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and while this is true, what you eat in the morning is equally important. In an ideal world we would all have a wonderful breakfast with fresh fruits and healthy cereals, delivered to us in bed by a butler, but sadly this is not the case for most of us.

Gluten-free oats

If you’re looking for gluten-free oats you could try polenta as a tasty alternative to porridge. Polenta is a fluffy Italian cornmeal that can look even more appetizing sprinkled with some nuts, seeds and berries. Or if you’re feeling in a savory mood you could add some mushrooms for added flavor and texture.

Summer oatmeal

This summer porridge is packed with fiber and calcium, and is low in sugar and fat. Requiring minimal preparation, this is perfect for a quick meal and can be made using almond milk, dry rolled oats, cinnamon and with blackberries and almonds on the top. Just combine the ingredients in a bowl the night before work and leave to refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

Have your bread and eat it

A gluten free loaf with a twist helps to keep bloating at bay, is a good source of potassium and is a perfect on the go morning snack for those with a sweet tooth!

Gluten-free pancakes

Not just for Pancake Day, these staple breakfast stars can be part of your morning meal made from soy milk, honey, buckwheat flour and coconut oil. Since they are healthy, you can you can allow yourself an extra batch and not have to work them off at the gym.

Variety is the spice of a gluten-free life and by eating a different breakfast every week you’ll never get bored. Soon you’ll be encouraging your friends and family to make the cross-over and you can share recipe ideas!
