So what do I eat for breakfast?

So, I went food testing today (I was quite sceptical about the legitamcy of a test that involves putting little pebbles in your belly button then lifting you leg to test resistance - by by golly i could actually tell a difference so....)
And whether i believe it or not i'd like to try to cut out what she suggested (I am fat and lazy and anything that might help with that, albeit a placebo, is worth it)

My question therefore is, what on earth do i eat for breakfast when I shouldn't eat wheat (which i wasn't anyway as suspected was intolerant to it) and I shouldn't eat dairy?

My brekkie usually consists of cup of tea, juice (also to be avoided) and a bowl of non wheat based cereal.

Does anyone drink goat's milk?
Any other ideas?

No dairy? Bummer. How about porridge? Without milk of course. Or, a nice cereal bar although generally they are rack full of sugar - you could make your own flapjacks or something with oats and marg - I have a nice recipe for reduced-sugar banana oat cookies here that could probably be modified into making larger bars.

Otherwise - boiled egg? kippers? egg and bacon? kedgeree?

Failing that there are several wheat-free gluten free breads available that make good toast - I use the Ener-G gluten free loaf (rice flour but not a brick), found mostly in Waitrose; but others don't like it that much and prefer one called Genius, which I believe is found in Tesco.

In the end, kinesiology might not be the best way to test, it depends massively on the quality of the practitioner, but if you get a good result from limiting/eliminating wheat and dairy from your diet within 2 weeks, then it's probably close enough.

I would strongly suggest though that you do one first and then the other, so that you are sure they both affect you - take out the wheat first for a minimum of 2 weeks before you take out the dairy as well; and keep a diary of how you feel and any change in health/ bowel movements/ skin condition/ weight.

Then, if you are feeling strong enough, after 6 weeks without you can do a "challenge" (i.e. eat a bit of wheat/ dairy) - chances are your bod will be really pissed off if you reintroduce something it doesn't like and you will be left in no doubt that you should avoid it! grin

Goats' milk is fine for some who have ishoos with cows' milk and not for others - there can be cross-reactivity so if you need to continue with some form of milk, switch to either soya milk or rice milk.

Thanks for that thumbwitch. Can't have rice or eggs either so...... Am trying goats milk, it's not too bad, I tend to not eat wheat anyway as it makes bloated (and i don't any help looking bigger) and gives me heart burn. I much prefer your idea of one thing at a time as it is tough to cut out all the things she said and she said do it all for a month!!!!
Will def keep a diary.

wow, serious bummer about the rice - most of the GF and Free From alternatives I use are rice-based!

Good luck with it anyway.

You can't eat wheat, rice, eggs or dairy, or juice??

What about baked beans? With grilled bacon/tomato etc?

Or a fruit salad?
