In trying to move to paleo, I have just started usually having meat (sausage links, patties, bacon, or ham) and veggie stirfrys. Today I used 1 large grated golden beet, 1 red pepper, 1 bunch of greens, and some onion and garlic. I also sliced up a huge tomato. Dd loves sweet potato fries.
I love custard for breakfast, too (confused eggs are on the list of tolerated or intolerant? - I hope the test helps you out).
We love Namaste pancake & waffle mix, with maple syrup...mmm! Namaste also makes a great Blondie mix; I use 1 bag of mix with 2 mashed overripe bananas & 3 eggs to make banana muffins...you can also throw in carob or cocoa powder, or whatever dried fruits & nuts you like.
Instead of oatmeal, we do hot rice cereal - Arrowhead Mills Rice & Shine is a good one. For cold cereal, our favorites are Arrowhead Mills Maple Buckwheat, Erewhon Rice Twice, and EnviroKids Koala Crisp, with rice milk.
Home-fried potatoes are great - I make extra baked potatoes with dinner, and cut up the cold spuds in the morning...fry 'em with a little safflower oil, some onions, salt & pepper, and throw in any other meats and/or veggies you like.
Hope this helps!
subbing--we need ideas. it's hard to be without eggs.
sprouted buckwheat pancakes
attempting other kinds--but none that are great yet.
Millet muffins w/jam
GF oatmeal w/fruit
cold cereal- chex?! (when daddy is up with them)
chicken maple sausage
turkey or normal bacon.
I LOVE veggie stir-fries! I like to grate a potato w/ some onion and beets!MMMM! Or for a long time I just did traditional stirfry veggies and some meat of some kind.
There are always smoothies- safe milk/yogurt- fruits- nuts/seeds for protein- add in some extra oil for good fat- like coconut oil
We do waffles/pancakes made w/ nut , seed or coconut flour, there are other gf/df options though depending on tastes- preferences and intolerances.
I try to keep it pretty simple here you don't have something different for b-fast everyday:
Monday and Thursday- eggs w/ homemade sausage- veggie hash and fresh fruit(currently pears from the in-laws)
Tuesday and Friday- hot cereal- there are many varieties- rice, buckwheat as pp said, Bob's Red MIll has a brand as well- and other grains like quinoa- millet or amaranth- I put a good amount of coconut oil in there, some cinnamon, nuts/seeds and some raw honey for sweetness
Wednesday- Coconut Flour Muffin Day!
Saturday- Mom's Day Off- Safe Cereal (Although today I did make a late b-fast w/ eggs- homemade sausage and coconut flour biscuits)
Sunday- Waffles/Pancakes- Made w/ Nut or Seed Flour or Apples(grated apples- w/ juiced squeezed out and eggs and cinnamon added)
That is what I make the kids anyway- I am pregnant w/ a few food aversions going on right now. I usually do TONS of smoothies and love green juice but since I have been pregnant(going on 32 weeks now) I cannot tolerate it for some reason. I am hoping that at least goes away by the time the baby comes as I LOVED starting the day w/ some greens- it always gave me tons of energy.
I don't like the fact that we are eating hot cereal 2 days a week, but I needed to simplify for myself, cut the budget and deal w/ the aversions- so I added that in- I don't always eat them myself though, but at least then I don't have to worry about what to feed them- I can go on autopilot.
