Miss N: Goodness - you really made my morning! Thank you so much! I am in the minority at my house, but my stubborn attitude slowly turns the tide. It is so helpful to hear from other people.
Miss C: Breakfast ideas for A's - Blueberry muffins, Cherry Muffins, Pumpkin Raisin Muffins, Ezekiel Cinnamon Raisin Toast with pure jam, turkey bacon, scrambled eggs with diced veggies (I actually had onions and artichokes in my eggs yesterday!) Scottish Oatmeal with nuts or seeds and dried fruit, creamy rice cereal (Bob's), Bread from my bread machine with every fruit or veggie imagineable - french toast using compliant bread and blackstrap molasses, pure maple syrup for the kids, pancakes, swedish pancakes, etc.
I just discovered Amaranth Cinnamon Flakes from Nu World! Fantastic and easy! 6 grams of protein and and high in certain vitamins. (If memory serves me right, high in Vitamin E and niacin). Throw in some almonds and dried cherries for an extra sweet treat. They are expensive as it can get, which is why I reserve the box for the weekend. It's nice to work hard Monday thru Friday knowing that your kids are getting good food- then Saturdays and Sundays are my "easy" mornings thanks to boxed cereal.
Since my older one is an O - anytime I have leftover muffins or pancakes, I try to grill or pan fry "beef sausage patties" or turkey bacon for the O. I also always serve fruit at breakfast - preferably fresh and sometimes canned.
Staples include: (I have an A who is a celiac) : buckwheat, brown rice flour, white rice flour, tapioca flour, ground flax seed, ghee, rice noodles, different kinds of rice, rice paper, mung bean noodles, lentils, canned beans, favorite spices (pure), etc.
I am running to the store about every 5 days for fresh fruit or veggies. I wish it were less often, but if I stock up too much then my veggies rot before I can get to them. The "veggie run" is a short shopping trip - which is perfect for the two year old's attention span. Once a month I run to my favorite grocery store (Woodman's) and STOCK UP. The kids do not come along during the stock up trip.
I hope to try out apricot blackberry gluten free bread on Sunday. I also want to do something with rye (A secretors and O secretor friendly.) If my plan works, both breads get cut in half and the second halves are frozen for later use. Hope this helps Miss C. Please write back if you need to. Good Luck.
