Got any? I'm getting tired of fruit! I need something with protein, and I really can't do eggs either.

Quinoa pudding w/non-dairy milk.

Quinoa is a complete protein too.

Quinoa is a grain! So is polenta!

Smoothies with nuts is one of my favourites. I like banana, frozen raspberries, almonds, flax meal & cocoa powder etc.

Tough criteria! Good luck!

Beans with ham or bacon. Get some chopped tomato with that and it should be fairly filling.

yes.

Without eggs, mostly I'd be sticking with things like sausage patties, ham, bacon. If you like smoothies, I'd probably go for a coconut milk yogurt and fruit.

You might want to post this question in the grain-free tribe on the TF board.

Aside from that, eat dinner for breakfast, have a bowl of soup, or a piece of salmon, etc.

Something I've been eating lately is a bowl of yogurt (again, coconut milk), with nuts. It has enough fat and protein to hold me through until lunch.

Quinoa and fruit, chilled. You can use fruit juice as part of the liquid that cooks the quinoa as well if you like. Sweetens it up. Cook it, mix it with fruit, I like berries, then chill in fridge. I like mixing it up with granola, but you could chop up some nuts if granola is out for you.

The weirdest quinoa meal I ever made (oh those experimental college days) was quinoa with chopped up prunes and some chiracha. OH MY! and this was for breakfast ?!? I digress...

eta eek, sorry, just read you're getting tired of fruit. I just got so excited about quinoa!

Not to derail...

Quinoa - as amaranth - are pseudo grains (since they are not grasses, corn (polenta) is)... I'm currently struggling with sussing out a grain-intolerance around here, so I'm especially interested in the technicalities.

Therefore, I'm leaning toward saying quinoa is an acceptable grain-free breakfast food. And amaranth muffins, too, whee.

We can't do eggs (yet) and are allergic to many tree nuts, so I sympathize withe the OP. We also prefer organic/no abx meat sources, which gets expensive. Especially for uncured meats for breakfast...

Remember, just because you're eating breakfast doesn't mean you have to eat traditional breakfast foods. I personally think the food I like for dinner tastes the same in the morining.

If you are eating quinoa here is a good granola recipe.

3/4 cup brown sugar (I use evaporated cane juice and 1 T molasses)
1/4 cup veggie oil
1/3 cup honey
5 cups quinoa flakes (original recipe calls for oats)
1/2 cup chickpea flour (original recipe calls for dry milk)
3/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup flaxmeal (optional)
1 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup dried cranberries

- mix sugar, oil and honey in saucepan, heat until sugar is dissolved
- pour over mixed dry ingredients (except cranberries), mix well
- spread out on greased baking sheet
- bake at 350 for 10 minutes, mix again and bake for another 5 minutes (I've lowered the temp a bit. The oat version cooked at 375, but this high a temp made the quinoa taste a bit burned)
- let cool in pan
- add cranberries or raisins, store in airtight container.

I can barely eat fruit and was looking forward to some of the suggestions. Looks like most of them are out for me. I ended up having issues with too many eggs and have to space them so it's really left me with little.

This morning I had what I've named Filipino burgers. They have veggies in them and an egg to hold them together since they are so small egg isn't necessary. I used zucchini and tomato as the veggies and browned in a frying pan. We made a whole batch last night and they froze and microwave well.

My favorite breakfast is Farmers Cheese, crumbled up with a taste of honey or a spoonful of yogurt to make it like cottage cheese.

When I can have eggs, I hard boil them and slice them up as wafers and use them to eat pimento cheese. Just a warning,I'm 20w pregnant and my hubby says it "must be a pregnancy thing".

cheese is dairy. grain-free, dairy-free leaves a heavy reliance on fruit, veggies, and protein. i had lettuce-wrapped turkey-avacado-olive "tacos" for breakfast today (dinner left overs). :

Sorry, cheese is dairy, but for SCD it's considered safe because it is lactose free. Since I can't eat fruit without major issues, I'm stuck with what I can eat meat, veggies, and what is considered safe cheese by SCD. I'd consider myself blessed if I could eat half an apple without a violent reaction. Heck, I can't eat turkey or avocados without getting an anaphylaxis reaction, and I don't think that would be good for the baby.

it's okay! i'm not playing the "whose allergy is worse" game. i was just pointing out that you came into a dairy-free thread and started talking about your favorite dairy-laden breakfasts.

My newest big thing for breakfast is hot veggie soups made with coconut oil or coconut milk. They are so warm and nourishing to wake up to in winter. Here's our recent favorite (very creamy):
For example yesterday we ate:
Cauliflower Dill soup (from the Body Ecology Diet, not )
1 T extra virgin coconut oil
1 diced onion
1/4-1/2 cup chopped fresh dill
1 large or two small heads of cauliflower
sea salt to taste
Saute onions in oil. Add dill, cauliflower and water to cover. Simmer 20 minutes. Then puree. Makes a creamy, flavorful soup. Perfect for breakfast lunch or dinner. Its delicious! Even my six-year-old loved it.

You can make a big batch and freeze small portions.

This morning I had pureed brocolli-fennel soup with a small piece of smoked salmon. Yum!:
