Buckwheat, hemp seeds, quinoa and coconut meat are great high protein alternatives to typical gluten based breakfast foods. When you remove gluten from your breakfast your stomach will feel better, and your brain will function better. There will be no more brain fog in the morning, which is caused by consuming wheat.

Buckwheat The Cheapest Gluten Free Breakfast

The cheapest option is buckwheat. Always buy it raw. It requires no cooking, just soak it in water for a few minutes and then rinse twice. It can also be sprouted overnight. Soak for a few minutes, rinse and then leave it in the cupboard for a day or two until small white tails come out. Don’t leave it too long as mold may develop.

When ready to eat, add almond milk, berries, apple or banana and cinnamon for flavor. Any flavor can be made, as buckwheat doesn’t have much flavor. Then blend the mix to a desired consistency and eat or drink.

Quinoa The More Expensive Gluten Free Breakfast

Quinoa is more expensive but tastes better. It has a nutty flavor, and tastes wonderful with almond milk and fresh figs. Quinoa can also be sprouted, but tastes better cooked. Just add twice the amount of water to quinoa and boil until it puffs up like rice.

Hemp Seeds The Healthiest Gluten Free Breakfast

Hemp seed is the healthiest option. It is also the most expensive. Just add hemp seeds and other ingredients to the mix and blend. It is a great source of protein and essential omega oils.

5 stars for Hemp Seeds

Fresh Coconut Meat The Tastiest Gluten Free Breakfast

Fresh coconut meat with fresh young coconut juice can replace almond milk. This is the tastiest option. Just crack open a green coconut, drain the juice and scoop out the meat. Blend with other ingredients and enjoy. Coconut flour can also be used, but doesn’t taste that great. It is good to use as a thickener.
