  • Breakfast ideas?

    Hi Everyone,
    I'd like to know what everyone eats for breakfast. Since I'm new to the site, I'm learning a lot, but all I seem to get down in the mornings are 2 pieces of white bread with butter. (I'm not very hungry right now, a lot of pain decreases my appetite.) Oh yeah, a big cup of water with honey, I like that very much! Even better then chamoille tea!

    hello. her are a few breakfast items that i eat without problems. FYI, i enjoy almond butter.

    oatmeal with a little almond butter in it. nice and healthy. scrambled eggs with american cheese in them. sometimes ill put it in an organic tortilla. wheat free original waffles with almond butter on top. whole grain pitas (new, now at publix) with almond butter.homemade pancakes when i feel like making them. sometimes ill dice up pears and cooked them in butter, cinnamon and suger and spread over waffles.

    ill be thinking of more

      I usually just have an egg and a piece of buttered toast --- dullsville, but it helps keep my blood sugar level where it needs to be. I also have a cup of low acid coffee with cream. Once in a while, if I'm going to be at home and can have a midmorning snack, I have cold cereal.

        If I have time before I go to work which I don't usually I'll fix something like pancakes, but most times its a couple of pieces of toast with butter. Most times I grab something at work in the cafe. ( usually some scambled eggs or whatever they have that looks half-way good to eat).

          I've been eating rice pudding a lot lately for breakfast. I know, boring, but I've just been too lazy to make anything lately.....If I don't have that, then I will make some egg whites and have them on water crackers. (boring again).....that's about it for me lately.

            Never thought of eggs

            I never thought of eggs, but I do love them! I'll have to try that tomorrow. I saw Waffles at the health food store yesterday and I was very tempted, however, they had Absorbic acid listed, I was wondering if that will cause issues? Does anyone know?
            Thanks again! Everyone here is SO helpful!

              I get nervous if any of the ingredients has any kind of acid. So I'm not really sure, maybe someone else will know.

                I like the instant oatmeal. I found an organic brand that comes in single serve packets that you can just add milk and microwave. Saves time in the morning before work. Then I add a few blueberries or sliced pears, or you can sweeten with pure maple syrup. Fills me up until lunch time so I'm not tempted to snack mid-morning.

                  I eat instant oatmeal at my desk at work in the mornings, I just don't have time before I leave home during the week. I put honey in my oatmeal.
                  On weekends I"ve been able to eat waffles or pancakes with natural maple syrup. I like to put fresh blueberries in my pancakes. I can eat eggs too. You can bake yourself some home made blueberry muffins to have on hand. Also I have been good with the Nutri grain brand Blueberry breakfast bars, they are great in a pinch at work. I can eat english muffins with butter. I have also been ok eating a plain bagel with cream cheese.
                  I hope this helps!

                      Breakfast Ideas

                      Donna,

                      What brand of Low-Acid coffee do you drink and where can it be found? Also, what type of cold cereal do you use? I really like my coffee, but I need to find something that is not so hard on the stomach.

                        Cinnamon?

                        I really like cinnamon but I wasn't sure I could have it on the diet. I think I'll try it this AM to see how it works for me.
                        Thanks again everyone!

                          Chainsaw: I get low acid coffee at Trader Joe's. And I have a toddy maker, which further reduces the acid. You can find toddy cold brewer in the ICN shop. My favorite cereal is honey bunches of oats, but I know it's not okay for everyone with IC. Usually I have an egg.

                          Donna

                          p.s. The ICN Shop also has low acid coffee if you don't have a TJ's near you.
                          Stay safe

                            For low acid decaf coffee, I use Puroast House Blend Low Acid Decaf. I order it directly at www.puroast.com I make it in a Toddy Maker (which further reduces the acid) - it's available in the ICN shop linked at the top of the page.
