I’ve been gluten-free for over ten years and still sometimes struggle with what to make for breakfast! Here are my top ten gluten-free breakfast ideas, all are healthy, nourishing and will fuel your body and brain for a great day!
I don’t know why, but I always struggle with what to make for breakfast. I wake up, I ask my two year-old and my four year-old what they want. And honestly they’re not at all helpful.
But today I was scrolling through some of my food pics and I thought, DUH. Here is what to eat for breakfast. All these nutritious, healthy, filling meals to fuel your brain and body.
Here are my top ten gluten-free breakfast ideas.
First up, a good ol’ smoothie.
When made properly, smoothies are healthy, filling, delicious – and won’t spike your blood sugar. I say that last part because majority of smoothies are made with a shit ton of fruit, and you know what eating a shit ton of blended up fruit in one sitting does? It spikes your blood sugar. Know what that does?
It causes mood swings, cravings and hormonal imbalance. No thanks. Hard pass.
My favorite smoothie recipe is:
- my Ancestral Nutrition Collagen Protein + Super Greens
- 1/3 cup frozen kale
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1 tbsp flax
- 1 tbsp chia
- 1 cup coconut milk
- 1 tbsp pecan butter
Blend it up and you’ve got protein, healthy fat, fiber, antioxidants – plus it tastes amazing. Here is another recipe for a great tasting smoothie that will strengthen your digestion and keep your skin youthful and glowing.
Next up: eggs, beef & veggies.
For this I saute any veggies we have in the fridge. Usually onion, bell pepper, tomato and potato. I add a lil’ grass-fed ground beef for extra protein and more nutrients. I top with two eggs, jalapenos and broccoli sprouts! So, so healthy.
Here we have smoked salmon potatoes. They’re simple and delicious.
Smashed potatoes, lactose-free sour cream, omega-3 rich salmon – it’s one of my favorite breakfasts. Throw an egg or two on top and you’re good to go. Full recipe HERE.
The trusty, portable breakfast sandwich.
There are all different kinds of gluten-free bread. My favorites include Canyon Gluten-Free and Carbonaut. Carbonaut is a newer brand (to me at least) and it’s insane. It tastes, looks and feels like the fluffy white bread of your childhood but is keto and gluten-free. I don’t know how they do it.
This breakfast sandwich has coconut oil mayo, Swiss cheese, two eggs, a lil harissa, tomato, and broccoli sprouts.
The Rao’s egg trick.
Trust me on this. It’s so good.
Scrambies with roasted potatoes and veggies.
For this, simply roast some potatoes on 375 while you scramble the eggs and cook the veggies. I love sautéing shredded Brussels in olive oil and adding fresh cherry tomatoes.
For this, toast up your favorite gluten-free bread. Then mash some avocado with sea salt and olive oil. Top bread with the guac, then prosciutto, then a big slice of tomato and an egg.
Protein, fat, fiber fueled breakfast.
This breakfast is loaded with protein, healthy fat and fiber. It’s one of my absolute favorites, especially after a Peloton workout. It’s got a bit of a Mexican flare too. Sautee the potato in garlic powder, olive oil and smoked paprika. One it’s cooked through, add onion, bell pepper and tomato. Add in the ground beef last. Serve with eggs and half an avocado (loaded with fiber and even more healthy fat!).
For this breakfast, my husband made eggs while I made the veggies. I chopped a potato and tossed it in olive oil and sea salt. I tossed the asparagus in olive oil. I chopped the tomato and added olive oil, salt, pepper and oregano. Baked on 375 until the potatoes were done, about 20 minutes. Although I took the asparagus out after about ten so they wouldn’t get mushy.
The classic avocado toast.
For the classic avocado toast, I don’t like mashing the avocado. I like chunks. You know the deal – toast your favorite gluten-free bread, top with avocado, add a lil’ coconut oil mayo for extra flavor if you like, add tomato, hard boiled egg (or whatever kind you like) and any garnish. I love spicy food so I added jalapeños.
So there you have my top ten gluten-free breakfast ideas. Let me know what some of your favorite breakfasts are in the comments!
