Gluten-Free Breakfast Ideas

Mix And Match Foods With Protein And Fiber For A Healthy Gluten-Free Breakfast


Updated June 05, 2014

Are you managing to eat a healthy gluten-free breakfast every morning? How many of us even know what a good breakfast really is? Shereen Jegtvig, About.com's Guide to Nutrition, says a healthy breakfast should contain protein (for example, from low-fat meat, fish, eggs, beans, or soy) and fiber. Protein and fiber, she says, will help you feel full until lunch. One of my favorite breakfasts consists of fat-free plain yogurt (for protein) mixed with fruit salad and ground flax seeds (for fiber).

If you can't manage a full breakfast, try splitting it into snack-like portions. Shereen's suggestion is to eat a hardboiled egg at home (for protein) and an apple and a handful of pecans or walnuts (for fiber) later in the morning.

Below are some sources of protein and fiber to mix and match for a gluten-free breakfast. For more ideas, take a look at our list of naturally gluten-free high fiber foods and our collection of gluten-free breakfast and brunch recipes.



  • Peanut butter (or almond butter)
  • Eggs
  • Yogurt
  • Meat or fish (but beware of packaged or processed meats, such as bologna, sausage, salami, ham, etc., because these meat products often contain gluten)
  • Milk
  • Cheese
