During this lockdown, I thought “hey why not share my ideas for my gluten free breakfast of the week” with all the recipes. Believe me, there’s nothing complicated about it, you probably already know some of them. But, I hope it will give you some new inspiration for your good gluten free breakfast of the week!
Indeed, breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. Anything you eat for breakfast will be much better digested by your body. So enjoy it in the morning!
Let’s go over my gluten free breakfast ideas:
- Monday: On the menu: A shot of detox, and a club sandwich full of protein to start the week right.
You’re going to need it:
- Five slices of ginger.
- 1 half lemon
- 1 orange
- Two slices of gluten-free bread
- 1 egg
- 1 half slice of ham
- 1 half lawyer
- 4 cashews
- Salted butter
- 1 lettuce leaf
- Salt and pepper
When you wake up, always drink water. Then, to cleanse your whole body a little bit, a very simple piece of advice on an empty stomach: take 5 small slices of ginger. In an empty saucepan, put the ginger inside and crush it with the back of a spoon. When it’s ready, add half a lemon juice. Then, a little water, (the sufficient quantity of a shot).
Then, turn your fire on and when your water boils, turn off the fire. Above all, cover your pan so that all the ingredients infuse well! Wait about 15 minutes. When your shot is cold, pass it through a colander to collect only the juice. and hop, drink it! It won’t be very pleasant, but believe me, your body will thank you.
When you’ve had your shot, it’s time to do your sandwich. Put a frying pan on the stove, make yourself a fried egg. When your egg is almost ready, add some broken cashews on top. In the meantime, toast your gluten-free bread, slice the avocado. Finally, when your bread is toasted, and your egg is ready: on your bread, put some salted butter, then add the ham, the egg, the avocado and the lettuce leaf. Add salt and pepper. Cover with the second slice. Tadaaa, this is your morning super sandwich.
Make yourself a little fresh orange juice, and voilà, here’s your gluten free Monday breakfast!
- Tuesday: On the menu: Brioche bun with good jam and fresh grapefruit juice.
For the gluten free brioche recipe, it’s over here. Try making your own jam, or take one not too sweet. It’s important not to give your body too much “bad” sugar in the morning, otherwise it will tire faster to digest and you’ll get hungry faster.
Then of course, make a good fresh grapefruit juice, and if you don’t like it too much when it’s bitter, add half a banana, it’s super good.
- Wednesday: On the menu: Yoghurt with homemade gluten-free muesli and fresh fruit with kiwi, banana and basilica
To make your homemade gluten-free muzzle, you’ll need:
- 1 tablespoon of millet flakes
- 1 half tablespoon of puffed rice
- 1 tablespoon of raisins
- 1 tablespoon cashew nuts
- 1 tablespoon almonds
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon and/or honey (optional)
- 1 ewe’s milk yoghurt
- Fresh seasonal fruit
Very simple: take a bowl, put your yoghurt in it first, then add all the cereals, finely chopped fruit, cinnamon and honey, and enjoy! Not very complicated, is it?
For your juice, mix half a banana, a kiwi, add some coconut milk with fresh basil, and 2 ice cubes!
- Thursday: On the menu: French toast with seasonal fruits and a red fruit smoothie.
For the French toast recipe, it’s right over here! For your juice, nothing very complicated: take red fruits, those of season, then add 2 ice cubes, mix well and it’s done!
- Friday: On the menu: banana and cinnamon omelette with orange juice
It may seem strange to you, but believe me, it’s delicious and super healthy! So, for that, you’re going to need..:
- Half a banana.
- 1 egg
- 1 slice of gluten-free bread
- 2 teaspoons powdered cinnamon
- 2 oranges for your juice
So, once again, it’s a very simple and really delicious recipe! Take a bowl, mash your banana. Then add the egg and the cinnamon: mix everything well so that everything is homogeneous. When your preparation is ready, heat a frying pan with a little butter, and when it is hot, cook your omelette in it! Tadaaa! Toast a slice of gluten-free bread and enjoy!
Don’t forget your fresh orange juice, it’s important!
- Saturday: On the menu, the famous avocado toast, smoked salmon and a fresh apple-fennel-lemon juice.
For your juice: you will need half a fennel, an apple and half a lemon. Mix everything together with 2 ice cubes! Hmm, you’ll see it’s perfect with the avocado toast.
For your avocado toast, you’re gonna need..:
- Half an avocado.
- 1 slice of smoked salmon (if you are a vegetarian, put 1 whole avocado)
- A few squares of feta cheese (you choose the quantity, it depends on your taste) (If you are vegan, you can put tofu in it)
- 1 half lemon
- 1 small spring onion
- 1 pinch of paprika
- One egg (optional)
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
The avocado: some people prefer the crushed avocado, I prefer it sliced and diced. It’s your choice. If you wish to crush it, use a little olive oil and lemon.
When your avocado is ready, prepare your feta: put it in a bowl and mix it with a little pepper, paprika and a teaspoon of olive oil. Crush and mix!
Finally: on a slice of toast, first put the salmon slice with a little lemon juice, then the avocado, then the feta, and finally the spring onions cut into thin strips. And there you go! (If you want, add a poached egg, it’s really not bad!)
- Sunday is brunch! So, two dishes are planned: gluten-free pancakes, and my specialty: fried eggs with vegetables and garlic (yes, yes, I did say garlic: it’s very good for your health).
Concerning fried eggs with vegetables, here is what you will need for 2 people:
- 2 eggs.
- 1 tomato
- 8 beautiful mushrooms
- 6 small squares of feta cheese
- 1 clove of garlic
- 4 heads of broccoli
- Salt and pepper
Again, nothing too complicated: cut your tomato, mushrooms and garlic. Heat a frying pan with olive oil. Sauté the garlic, then add the tomato, mushrooms and broccoli heads (cooked). Leave to cook for 5 minutes on a low heat. Add a little parsley, salt and pepper and cook over a low heat with a lid for another 5 minutes. When everything is ready, set aside.
Then, take another frying pan, and make your eggs fried. When they are well cooked, surround them with your first preparation. Cover and cook over low heat for a good 5 minutes. Finally, add a little parsley and your feta squares.
There you go, just help yourself!
Don’t forget to make a small fruit salad on the side!
Enjoy your meal, and have a nice day! I hope you enjoyed these little ideas for your gluten free breakfast!
