Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas!

When I found out I had to stick to a gluten free diet - you can read more about it on my post How To Eat Gluten Free - I knew breakfast would be a little difficult to figure out. I usually ate some kind of cereal that had wheat in it, so at first it was kind of hard adjusting. But, after reading from sources online and just simply going to the grocery store to check out my options, I've come up with some really solid go-to recipes for breakfast!

1. Gluten Free Waffles From Vans.

I've always loved waffles, so when I found the Vans Gluten Free Waffles, I was super excited because not only are they healthy, but they taste great too (I promise this post isn't sponsored by Vans, I just really am addicted to their waffles). They have a couple of different flavors which pleasantly surprised me, because usually gluten free foods come in one flavor - and I have seen before where the box lists the flavor as "gluten free." So the fact that this brand offers many different flavors made me super happy. I like to stick to the all-natural one (just your run-of-the-mill waffle), but I've had the blueberry flavor as well and it's really yummy! I just put peanut butter on them, and depending on how I'm feeling that day, I either put chocolate chips or banana slices on top!

2. Gluten Free Toast and an Egg

Can we just appreciate how good this egg looked before I tried to flip it?

Since I was a kid, toast and an egg has been one of my favorite breakfast foods. It really fills you up (especially this 7-grain kind!), and gives you a lot of energy for the rest of the day. I have also been obsessed with Cajun seasoning lately - I have been putting it on everything guys - and I put some on my egg and it tasted amazing! You seriously need to try it. I just put grape jelly on my toast with no butter or anything since I'm not the biggest fan of butter, and it tastes great! This is also a really fast breakfast for days that you don't really have time. And nowadays, gluten free bread doesn't taste any different than regular, so you can have your toast and eat it too!

3. Omelette With (optional) Salsa

You know this is full of Cajun seasoning.

Another obsession of mine: salsa.
Omelette's are such a great breakfast food! Not only do they taste great, but they are great for you! I fill mine with sautéed vegetables, Cajun seasoning, and a little bit of cheese, and top it all off with a generous amount of homemade salsa! My taste buds are probably numb from all the spices I put them through, but ohmygosh does it taste amazing. Seriously, add in some bell peppers too and this is heaven!

Well, there you have it! Three different ideas for gluten-free breakfasts! There are definitely more that I love (gluten-free pancakes, oatmeal, Puffins cereal...) so if you want some more ideas, just let me know! I seriously always wake up hungry so it's super important for me to always have solid breakfast ideas I can regularly fall back on. And since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, I like to keep them healthy so I can get my body ready for whatever!

What is your favorite breakfast food?

Thank you so much for reading, and have a wonderful day! :)
