Gluten Free Breakfast

Gluten Free Breakfast

I am on holiday this week and the challenge for me at this moment is finding a gluten free breakfast.  The hotel we are staying at includes what they call breakfast, bread, buns, bagels,eggs, hashbrowns.  The eggs are from a box, the hash browns from a bag.  Most certainlynot a  gluten free breakfast! Most certainly not a breakfast period.  Living gluten free means eating real food.

Now my challenge is finding a gluten free breakfast.  Would does that look like for me?  Well I think I will find some bacon, and a salad with olive oil/lemon dressing.  If there was an avacado included that would be really super.

This is my first time travelling for an extended period of time since I have know I am gluten sensitive.  Challenging to say the least.  Every meal can be a challenge because I am not in control of what is put on my plate.  Gluten seems to be in so many foods.  And I only need to eat the tiniest bit to feel the reprocussions.

So here is a list of things that I have learned to  do when going out to eat. If you are gluten free living it may be helpful.

  • Tell the server you are gluten sensitive or celiac.  Some may not know what that is so telling them you have a gluten allergy may be an easier way to say it
  • Choose real food with no sauces, dressings
  • Make sure your meat, poultry, fish is grilled, broiled with nothing on it
  • Do not eat off anyone else’s plate as it may be contaminated with gluten
  • Once you have made your best choice now is the time to enjoy.

So today as I get ready to  go  out and find a gluten free breakfast, I will be putting this list to the test again today.  Finding a nice place to eat and be able to enjoy a nice gluten free breakfast is a great way for me to reduce the stress of travelling.

Are you gluten sensitive or celiac? What is your eating strategy when travelling?  Do you have any suggestions to find a fantastic gluten free breakfast?

It would be great to hear your ideas in the comments.  Like and Share.

    I haven’t seriously traveled since I have become vegan. Maybe in time, if we all persist, hotel chains and B&B’s etc will realize they need to have more healthy offerings. Why can’t fruit and vegetables be offered? If served in a bowl nested into a tray of ice water, it would remain fresh and wonderful,

      Very True Loretta, I agree we must be the ones to persist to change how food is provided on the road in hotel chains and B&B’s. As consumers our choices are our voice. Thanks for connecting. Best Regards, Wendy

    Very informative article. While I do follow a gluten free diet, I do try to eat healthy which is many times very hard to find in the world of processed food. I am finding more and more recipes that contain no gluten or sugar, but it is still such a small amount.

    It is difficult and I agree telling the server upfront does help however many do not even know what gluten sensitive is! For sure the places I have been are willing to do their best. Thanks for connecting. Best Regards, Wendy
