What does a gluten free girl eat for breakfast? Wait a minute. Seriously? What should I eat?
Fruit just does not tie you over, especially when you're up to your elbows in placenta all day long. Sorry, TMI.
You need something heartier. I used to be obsessed with cinnamon roll oatmeal. mmmmm. Since going gluten free, I've found the very best breakfast grain to be either buckwheat (yes I know! but really just an unfortunate name) or brown rice. Either works great as a warm cereal. They both have a naturally nutty flavor, and are relatively high in fiber.
Lately, I've been making a fruity warm breakfast, in about a month i'll probably switch over to a soy-milk creamy breakfast, you'll just have to wait at the edge of your seat for that post:)
Pomegranate Breakfast Concoction: AN ORIGINAL! really, the standing ovation is unnecessary. You're too kind, too kind...
Into a sauce pan: A big ladle full of pre-cooked brown rice Pomegranate juice, or pomegranate juice cocktail to cover the rice Heafty dash of cinnamon Less zealous dash of ginger Dried cherries and dried cranberries
Simmer till juice has condensed and rice/berries have softened occasionally I add a handful of frozen blueberries at the end, and heat till they just burst
Remove from heat Put in your favorite colorful bowl*. Add a swirl of pure maple syrup Top with shredded coconut.
****note. I stared at this post for 5 min trying to figure out what was wrong... turns out I typed bowel instead of bowl. Strange how that error took so long to jump out to me. yikes! what is happening!
