Where have I been? Well, I’m a newlywed. Yep! Chris and I finally got hitched September 14th in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. It was such a wonderful time, and we enjoyed spending our honeymoon in Grand Cayman. I’ll upload some pictures when I have them so you can catch a glimpse of our special day.

10 Gluten-Free Breakfast Ideas – A Roundup

 

Easy and Healthy Breakfast

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, and often times, it’s the meal that I eat the most at. I try to eat a larger breakfast and taper down the portion sizes as the day goes on. I have found this not only helps maintain my energy level and blood sugar level, but also my weight.

You should always make the time to whip up breakfast in the morning. It’s not as time-consuming as people might think. No excuses – start your day off right with a healthy, gluten-free breakfast.

Here are some ideas to get you started …

A Roundup of 10 Gluten-Free Breakfast Ideas

1) Toast with sunflower seed spread and sprinkled with Spectrum Naturals Decadent Coco-Chia-Flax Mix (found at Whole Foods, Sprouts), served with fruit (pictured above, great snack also)!

2) Banana Silver Dollar Coconut Pancakes from The Spunky Coconut  ~ Loving these grain-free pancakes, highlighting banana and coconut!

3) Fresh Berry and Basil Crumble from The Healthy Apple ~ A refreshing take on a regular baked crumble. This recipe features tons of fresh fruit!

4) 1 Minute Blueberry Citrus Shake from Family Fresh Cooking ~ A super easy morning or afternoon shake, made with simple ingredients.

5) Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal from Family Fresh Cooking ~ Use gluten-free oats with this recipe, super flavorful!

6) Peanut Butter Banana Quinoa Granola from Queen of Quinoa ~ A unique take on regular granola, this one is packed with nutrients!

7) Melted Leek and Red Pepper Quiche from Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free ~ I love quiches of any kind! They are great for breakfast, lunch or dinner!

8) Kale, Sausage and Quinoa Scramble from With Style and Grace ~ You had me at Kale … (I’m a huge kale fan).

9) Paleo Breakfast Bars from Elana’s Pantry ~ Perfect for a snack on the go!

10) Gluten-Free Buckwheat Crepes from The Gluten-Free Girl and Chef ~ Buckwheat is such a wonderful gluten-free ingredient and it works great in this crepe recipe.

Locate Special Diet is LIVE!

It’s finally here. After a year and a half of work and research, the Locate Special Diet website is live. Oh… it feels so good to type those words. Let me tell you a little bit about my baby…

Locate Special Diet helps people find local businesses that cater to a gluten-free, vegetarian, or organic lifestyle. 

The database currently includes approximately 30,000 businesses in over 27 U.S. cities. Users can browse local restaurants and grocery stores by location, dietary preference and type of food. There is also a section to filter places that offer gluten-free, vegetarian or organic drinks. Austin is currently the only city with the largest drinks database, and it includes places to get smoothies, juices or even gluten-free beer.

Don’t see your favorite local business in the database? Users can submit businesses to Locate Special Diet and after they are approved by our team, we will add them in. This includes restaurants, grocery stores and drinks for any city. Our team is also furiously working to extend the current database to reach others looking to find places that cater to their special diet lifestyle.

I thought I would share some of my Favorite Things About Locate Special Diet.

I’ve been fascinated by all these microwave recipes I have seen lately. Cooking things in the microwave is normally not something I would do. I like the process of creating meals, even though they may take a while to prepare sometimes. I use that time to relax… hang out with Chris and our dogs, read a book while a meal is in the oven, or listen to my favorite band. Sometimes cravings take over though, and I want something that is fast and delicious. In this case, I wanted a quick dessert recipe that doesn’t take much effort at all.  [Read more...]
