Wheat-Free Breakfast Ideas?

I've been put on a wheat-free diet and for the life of me, can't think of any good breakfast ideas, save for fruit and cottage cheese. Eggs, of course are good, but I can't eat them every day. What might be other good options? REcommendations for good wheat-free breads or cereals appreciated too.

  1. Oatmeal. Now that the weather is cooling down, we'll be having oats for breakfast again. We like oat groats, cooked in the slow cooker overnight, but rolled oats or steel-cut are also good.

      Along the same lines as oatmeal, you might experiment with other grains for hot breakfast cereals. I like quinoa and amaranth (not together, though.) I usually throw them into my rice cooker in the morning with some berries or apple slices and some cinnamon or something, so by the time I'm done showering, breakfast is ready.


    2. Smoothies while it's warm enough to drink iced beverages for breakfast.

      Personally, I like dinner leftovers for breakfast.

      Cream of rice isn't for everyone, but might be fun for a change for you.

      Yogurt and honey with wheat free versions of granola, muesli, fresh fruit, dried fruit, or nuts.

      1. yogurt and fruit
        smoothie with yogurt and fruit and maybe some protein powder
        or with silken tofu instead of the yogurt

        1. I do vegan chili and a salad along with fruit such as grapes or kiwis. If chili isn't available then I do oatmeal mixed with frozen blueberries (no sugar added) cinnamon, ginger powder and some whole milk,

          1. Refried beans (I used canned, fat-free), salsa, and a blob of plain yogurt or sour cream. Melted cheese on the beans if you want. Can roll in a corn tortilla for a change.
