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.
- Whole-grain hot or cold cereals, including gluten-free oatmeal
- Gluten-free muffins or bread made with whole grains
- Gluten-free whole-grain waffles
- Buckwheat pancakes
- Fresh whole fruit or fruit salad
- Flax seeds (or flax in some other form, such as flax bread)
- Hummus with fresh crudite or a diced veggie salad
- Blended Salads
- Peanut butter (or almond butter)
- Meat or fish (but beware of packaged or processed meats, such as bologna, sausage, salami, ham, etc., because these meat products often contain gluten)
