I've had achey-limbs developing for a few years now. What I thought was possibly menopause arthritis or hereditary arthritis seemed to be getting worse and worse. I have never been a big bread eater, but for convenience I choose a slice of toast for breakfast, usually Doves Farm organic, this is a beautifully dense wholemeal loaf reminiscent of bread I used to bake as a student. Menopause has come and nearly gone now and over the last 3 weeks I felt my aches becoming more and more troublesome. Trouble sleeping, generally feeling them in my joints for 80% of the time. Always better for exercise, of course!
So, I just thought I would try cutting wheat for a day - next day...pain extremely reduced, day 2, even better, day 3 - I feel like I am almost back to normal.
Sadly, rice cakes every morning for breakfast is not going to replace the lovely smell of toast with melted butter, so I have resorted to Chatgpt to ask for breakfast ideas for gluten/wheat free! Here are the results!
Quinoa Breakfast Bowl: Cooked quinoa makes an excellent gluten-free base for a breakfast bowl. Top it with fresh fruit, nuts, seeds, and a drizzle of honey or maple syrup.
Gluten-Free Oatmeal: Opt for certified gluten-free oats and make a comforting bowl of oatmeal. Add your favorite toppings such as berries, sliced banana, nuts, and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
Smoothie Bowl: Blend together your favorite fruits, vegetables, and a liquid of your choice (such as almond milk or coconut water) to create a delicious smoothie bowl. Top with gluten-free granola, shredded coconut, and chia seeds.
Eggs and Vegetables: Prepare a hearty breakfast by sautéing vegetables like spinach, bell peppers, and tomatoes. Add eggs and scramble or make a veggie omelet. Serve with avocado slices.
Chia Seed Pudding: Mix chia seeds with your favorite non-dairy milk (like almond milk or coconut milk) and let it sit overnight in the refrigerator. In the morning, top it with fresh fruit, nuts, and seeds.
