Breakfast is an essential meal of the day. It needs to be nutritious enough to provide energy and vitality and be healthy and beneficial to our body. For those who are lactose and gluten intolerant or those looking for new recipes for a balanced breakfast, these five breakfast recipes are ideal!
1) Multi-Vitamin Smoothie
Smoothies are incredibly easy to prepare, allow the addition of multiple ingredients, and are yummy! They are indispensable for those who want to be in good health, for those who want to lose weight in a healthy way, or for anyone requiring an extra supply of nutrients.
We recommend combining the following fruits with green leafy vegetables:
You can also add herbs (ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, seeds, and sprouts)
2) Buckwheat Pancakes
Pancakes are a delicious dish that can be eaten at any time of day. The problem is that they are made from wheat flour, which contains gluten and milk. Nevertheless, the traditional French recipe states that they can be prepared using buckwheat, which is not really wheat itself and therefore does not contain gluten. You have to make them in the same way as regular pancakes, but with buckwheat flour. Besides, it can be sweet or spicy with any nutritious toppings you wish.
3) Rice Pudding With Fruits and Vegetables
A classic rice pudding can become a healthy breakfast if prepared with brown rice and rice milk, which are more nutritious. Make the pudding as usual and let cook it with a cinnamon stick and lemon peel until it thickens. To sweeten it, use honey. Combining this breakfast with grated or composed apple and some walnuts or hazelnuts will provide an excellent balance of carbohydrates, protein, healthy fats and fibre.
4) Chickpeas Pancakes
A surprising and essential ingredient of a healthy breakfast is chickpea flour. This kind of flour is still relatively unknown. However, it is an excellent food for health because it is very nutritious and can be added to various recipes. Chickpeas flour does not contain gluten and can also be used to prepare pancakes without any egg mixture since it gets the perfect consistency only with water. This preparation, seasoned with a little salt and spices to taste, can turn into delicious grilled pancakes!
5) Cereal With Fruits
Fortunately, most cereal brands have gluten-free options, including Cheerios, Kellogg’s, etc. There is nothing better than starting the day with a bowl of cereal with milk and fresh fruits, bananas, strawberries and blueberries.
6) Tortillas With Guacamole
Some people cannot have their breakfast without any toast or sandwich. We can always choose gluten-free and lactose-free bread, but you can also use gluten-free tortillas. Several ingredients can be added to prepare juicy and delicious tortillas with a guacamole base. Besides, avocado is a fruit rich in protein, fibre and healthy fats that provide us with many nutrients for a good start to the day.
Hard, soft-boiled, scrambled, even if you’re in the mood for a gluten-free quiche, eggs have much protein and are very filling. It can be eaten from one day to the next. It can be made without a base if you don’t want it to have puff pastry or shortcrust pastry or even a base with potato slices (first, you must bake the potatoes with salt and oil and then assemble it in the mould of the quiche).
Many people consume too much refined flour, sugar and dairy products at breakfast, which do not provide the body with what it needs and can make us feel heavy or tired from the first hour. If you don’t want to feel as such, you may try those recipes and see how it goes. What are the other gluten and lactose-free breakfast you’ve tried? Share the recipe with us in the comments below!
