    Need ideas for breakfast / lactose intolerance

    Shop Now
    Hi there,

    for years I had cottage cheese/curd with fresh fruits for breakfast - and I really loved that! (and quite often I had that for afternoon snack, too).

    Maybe that was too much or whatever, but nowadays everytime I drink milk or eat curd/cottage cheese I have a big rumbling in my belly - without consulting a doctor, I m sure that is a lactose intolerance.

    For me, that is a sign, I should not eat those dairy products and going for lactose-free variants is not the way to go (and supplementing lactase is crazy in my mind).

    So, now I have a problem with getting enough protein, or even what should I eat for breakfast at all? I can't have eggs every day or eat tuna for breakfast. Cottage cheese with fruits was the perfect low calorie - easy preparation breakfast.

    Please help! :-)

    Bushka,

    Our breakfast is always some fruits, such as 1/2 orange, 1/2 kiwi, grapes, melon.

    1 glass of Smoothie
    ============
    made from blueberries, and a fruit, whatever we have on hand,
    a tablespoon each of Diatomacious Powder, Spirulina, Chlorella, Almond Milk

    Lastly
    =========
    * some leftover dinner most of the time
    * or bacon & eggs

    Best to you
    Grizz

    You could try Kefir (non-dairy and yougurt like) dumped into a blender and whatever fruit you like blended in with it. Often found in the same section with yogurt in larger grocery stores and health food stores.

    I never have anything with lactose for breakfast, theres all kinds of ideas, just have to think out of the 'conventional breakfast' box.

    Blueberries and coconut milk
    Smoothie with blueberries, spinach, ice and coconut milk
    Bacon and Eggs
    Eggs sunnyside up, served ontop of left over cooked greens,
    eggs sunnyside up, served over sauteed zucchini and onions
    left over dinner meat and veg
    handful of blueberries and coconut and almonds
    (be mindful of your fruit choices, melons create a large insulin spike)
    OR, if your not hungry, dont eat----thats my normal choice

    Aside from coconut kefir, which I've never seen, what kind of kefir would be grain free, soy free, and dairy free?

    I sometimes have fruit with primal "granola" made with nuts (buy them raw) and coconut flakes roasted in coconut oil. (I prefer to go easy on the nuts due to their O-6 content, so I don't do this often, but it's an option you might enjoy.)

    Egg muffins.

    Avocado slices rolled in ham.

    There are quite a few primal/paleo energy bar recipes out there that might work well for you.

    It's grain free and soy free. As for dairy, there's the 80/20 rule and a very odd characteristic of Kefir which is that most lactose intolerant folks can tolerate it! Why? Because it contains lactase and bacteria that break down/digest lactose which causes the intolerance. Here's one link for quick reading:

    I don't think about foods in terms of meals but rather just eat whatever food I have on hand that sounds good.

    Breakfast looks no different than lunch or dinner in this house.

    +1, although even though liver and heart have made it into the breakfast menu, sardines are still better at lunch IMO!
