I eat oatmeal with miso (although to some that isn't gluten free).

I have chicken broth and rice sometimes.

Poached eggs and gluten free toast.

Leftover dinner.

Eggs are usually on my menu. Or . . .

Soups and brown or black rice or other gluten-free grain. The red quinoa does not have to be rinsed (like the lighter one) and cooks in just 20 minutes. Cinnamon can be put on the quinoa - with a tiny touch of stevia (from the plant).

Lentils come in a couple varieties and can even be seasoned with cinnamon and cardamom - or with mint & fennel, etc. Black beans with turmeric and cumin?

A red bell pepper seems almost like a fruit to me. I wonder if there is some way to season vegetables so that you can enjoy them. I cannot imagine a meal without something dark green. Nutmeg goes very nicely on steamed spinach or even chard.

Maybe lightly steamed shredded carrots with some mint?

If you don't want meat, a little steamed tofu can also be seasoned in many ways.

Dark berries, nuts.

I am way too tired in the morning to do anything, but cereal or toast. So, I make homemade granola (my LLMD allows honey.)

I usually have it generously coated with yogurt and add fresh fruit or raisins.

I just found a recipe online to make it with Agave, so will be trying that one soon.

Vegetables. I've done plenty of that before. Very weird for breakfast but not bad once you get used to it.

Eggs are out??

You can get gluten free oatmeal at the health food store, but it's still a carb.

Lulu - If you can tolerate eggs, they're a definite plus for protein. If not, then plain yogurt with no sugar added fruit, or fresh fruit is real good. Granolas with any sort of honey, etc. gives me yeast like crazy. Not saying it will you, but if you're on abx, be careful.

Brown rice pudding, made with coconut milk and nuts!

Museli with nuts and fresh fruit, if fruit is OK.

Smoothies! My husband is crazy for nut-butter based smoothies. (Silken tofu, peanut butter, soy milk, and a banana. A touch of vanilla extract.)

veggie scrambled eggs.

or add some rice to the above and have veggie scrambled egg fried rice. To do this I saute the veggies then add the rice (a good thing to do w/leftovers) add a touch of water, cover & steam until hot, then add scrambled eggs on top and mix together.

Sometimes I crisp fry a little chopped up bacon and add the pieces to the mix.

YUM.

big bowl of fresh fruit topped w/plain yogurt and maybe a touch of brown sugar or honey.

Salad.

Agree w/leftover dinner.

I lived on this hot breakfast porridge made with quoina flakes during my lyme treatment:

http://bodyecology.com/recipes/porridge.php

Make up a double batch, and you can just heat up an individual portion for breakfast each day. This is a no-carb, no sugar breakfast. Totally OK for lymies.

Like you, I don't want to eat veggies and non-breakfast meats in the morning.

By the way, this site is for people struggling with candida, so all the recipes are good for lymies--Body Ecology Diet.

Most days start for me with a huge bowl of oatmeal with ground flaxseed, or maybe cream of buckwheat with some spectrum spread and sea salt, naybe some shredded wheat with fruit, maybe some poached eggs and red skin potatos with peppers and onions. Remember even extreme candida diets still allow red skin potatoes due to the very low sugar content. Maybe a spinach omlet? There are tons of options. Heck, I will add a large green smoothie to my breakfast for a little extra.

What is quoina? Is the texture anything like oatmeal (I can't stand that texture.)

What is the best Stevia to buy?

How do you make brown rice pudding?

One problem I have with the healthier foods/recipes is that I would have to go to the health food store to get the ingredients. That makes it way out of my budget.

Another thing is I don't usually like the taste, but I am willing to try some things. One other thing is the fatigue keeps me from shopping reg. and eating better. (I know that can be a vicious cycle.)

Red skin potatoes have a glycemic index of 86 to 89 (depending on the site)

Officially high is any glycemic index number higher than 70.

Quoina is a small seed. If you cook it whole in water, in about 15 minutes it pops open and is done. It can be used as a substitute for pasta or rice.

You have to go to a health food store (one that sells food, not just pills) to buy the quoina flakes. Same with stevia.

The texture of the flakes once cooked is smooth like a vanilla pudding. The flakes totally, totally dissolve. So, it is nothing like the texture of oatmeal. The stevia and vanilla make the porridge a real treat.

Liz,
Find someone to take you to a store to stock up for the long haul, so you don't get so tired.

Veggies and fruits are less expensive than meat, so at a healthy foods store it's not so expensive, if that's what you buy mostly. Even Whole Foods has some great sales on produce.

If you check the phone book or on line, in less expensive suburbs there is usually a health store with reasonable prices. I hear that Walmart has a large organic health food and produce department.

The green drinks and smoothies are very healthy and delicious, but you need a blender and a juicing machine, both of which you could get on sale at Kmart, Walmart, etc.

I have some delicious Quinoa recipes I'd be willing to share if you want to pm me.

Quinoa is a light grain that tastes good and is very high in protein. I am going to try the recipe for Q. cereal to see if I like that. Teff is another grain I've had before and for which I would like to find recipes.

I'm lactose intolerant, so vegan cookbooks (try the library) have many very good and easy recipes I can eat that are also good for anti-candida diets.

Hope this helps a little!

Also most grocery chains have a health food section, most of which carry quinoa, but not so often the quinoa flakes. I have also found stevia there. Not sure it matters what kind of stevia, but the drops are good.

quoina flakes, oatmeal, shredded wheat, fruit, veggie omlet, steel cut oats, cream of buckwheat, red skin potatos and onions are all great in our situation. Whole Foods carries quoina flakes.

We don't have a Whole Foods or Trader Joe's around here. We do have a little health food store, but like I said the prices... Also, you have to make sure to check out the expiration dates.

I will check my local grocers for quiona. I kind of doubt they have it as they have very little in the way of health foods, but I will check.

Twinkle, if I find any I will take you up on your offer.

You can order nearly anything on line these days. And you can also ask grocers to special order - maybe start carrying a new line. If the food they carry is not health food, it is not food.

A market here that carried really junky food and a greasy deli was recently bought out by a natural foods store and all the employers were so sad as they lost their jobs. Had that first store carried food that was actually real food, it would have been better for everyone.

REMEMBER: If you buy regular light-colored quinoa you MUST rinse it first with a VERY fine strainer.

Here's a start:

We are low carbers, besides having numerous food allergies. Eggs, bacon, sausage, omelets with spinache, broccoli, mushrooms olive and Swiss,etc.; quiches are freqently used for breakfast meals. Also low carb tortillas with either scrambled eggs with salsa, or peanut butter. Creamed wheat or a Wasa multigrain cracker with onion and chive cream cheese, some lunchmeat and cheddar jack cheese. We avoid the fruit and juices because of the sugar. Carbquick pancakes with low sugar syrup.
Watch fiber intake when on low carb diet; Citrucel supplement will work well.
Hope this works for you.

Something else I've been eating a lot recently is a piece of roast chicken. I've been getting a whole roast chicken and have it for dinner, then a piece of leftover for breakfast.

Not all fruits are so high in sugar that you should avoid them. I like berries (blue, black) with plain yogurt. I don't eat it every day. Besides, the antioxidant effect they have is a benefit.

But I also don't feel that yeast has been a big problem for me, because I still eat more carbs than most of you probably do and am still getting better.

When I wasn't allergic to eggs, onions and bellpeppers, I used to make an egg white omelet out of those things.

It was actually really delicious if I roasted the onions and bell pepper under the broiler first, then folded them into the omelet halfway through cooking it.

Some salsa ontop, and you're good to go. I miss that breakfast! I need my allergies to go away so I can get back on that!

My personal favorite:

In a pan, I cook onions until soft, add diced peppers and cook a little bit more,

then scramble some eggs with a little bit of milk or water, some Ricotta & a bit of parmesan cheese.

I spray a deep cookie sheet with cooking spray, spread the mixture & then bake until just about cooked then turn the oven off & let it finish cooking through.

Sometimes I'll replace the peppers with spinach & the parmesan with feta.

I cut it into squares to fit in small tupperware containers. I make a large batch (using 18 eggs), divide among the containers & freeze.

Then when you want one, you can take it out of the freezer & nuke it for a minute or two. You canroll it up in a low-carb or whole grain wrap for breakfast on the run.

You can change it up by adding diced ham or crumbled bacon bits and various cheeses.

Sometimes I like a bowl of oatmeal or Wheatena with salt instead of sugar, but I think that makes me weird. I've never liked sweet cereal. [lol]

Adding cinnamon to oatmeal helps keep the glycemic impact down. I don't add the salt if I add cinnamon & I only eat cereal in small amounts & not very often because it IS full of carbs.

Yogurt with a small amount of berries or diced green apple is also tasty. I believe you can use a tiny drizzle of honey, as long as you don't overdo it & you're not already experiencing problems with yeast.

My DD loves to have the yogurt with apples & the Kashi 7 whole grain nuggets on top with a honey drizzle. It makes a fun combination of textures.

Hmmm.... I'll bet that would be tasty with cinnamon too for a change. I'll have to try that one out, maybe instead of the honey.

If you have to treat Babs with Mepron, you need to have a good amount of fat. Then it's good to add a little olive oil to the eggs; canola oil, flaxseed oil or butter to the cereal; and eat full-fat yogurt, maybe with a handful of nuts.

How about cottage cheese, strawberries (VERY low glycemic index and low sugar), and some buttered Ezekiel sesame toast??

Ahhh....no carb reaction, high in protein, delicious!

Regular old scrambled eggs get boring. I get creative with mine and they're delicious!

Scrambled eggs over a few tablespoons of salsa (mild or hot)

Scrambled eggs with roasted red peppers and sour cream. I get freshly roasted peppers from a deli.

Scrambled eggs with sesame seeds. I toast the sesame seeds a little in the frying pan (dry pan) and then add them to the eggs before scrambling.

Qiunoa is not carb-free, just has fewer carbs than grains like rice. It is a good protein choice.

I have to say that I like quinoa a lot, but never enjoyed the flakes: if I were going to eat it for breakfast [which I have occasionally], I would use leftover [ie cooked] quinoa grain as a muesli base, adding seeds, nuts and a little fruit, maybe cinnamon too.

My sister has a great flax bread/muffin recipe--I'll snag it from her and transcribe it here.
______________________________________________

I had found this recipe at one point for

low-carb (and low-glycemic) porridge -
Faux Oatmeal. I never made it so can't vouch for the taste.

You could probably add 1/2 tsp (or so) of cocoa powder to it for a chocolate version.

Could probably add 1-2 Tablespoons of
whey protein to thicken it up/add protein as well.
_____________________________________________

3/4 cup of warm whole milk
(or cream and water, or coconut milk)

2 tablespoons ground golden flax

4 tablespoons sugar free desiccated coconut

1tablespoon of vanilla extract

1 drop of liquid stevia

1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg

Combine warm milk, flax, coconut, stevia and nutmeg in a bowl. Stir well and let sit for a few minutes until the ``oatmeal'' thickens.

Optional: you can add some nuts or low sugar berries to this recipe.
