Gluten Free Breakfast Cereal
and Gluten Free Breakfast Ideas

Gluten free breakfast cereal is a hot commodity these days, but most have not been properly treated or prepared in order to make a healthy gluten free breakfast for you or your family.

A gluten free breakfast would be free of any wheat, rye, or barley. Even "contaminated" oats that are processed in the same processing plants as these grains should be excluded.

However, "safe" or gluten free oats that are properly prepared into a healthy oatmeal or porridge can be a great choice to replace boxed gluten free breakfast cereals which are basically junk food.

Learn about Breakfast Cereal Abuse

The abuse of grains used in the making of commercial gluten free breakfast cereals is almost a crime.  Most boxed cereals are produced by a process called extrusion.

  • The extrusion process involves slurries of grains being forced through tiny holes at high temperatures with the destruction of vital nutrients and the destruction of proteins (producing highly toxic acrylamides).

Acrylamides are a deadly neurotoxin just like MSG.  Most processed cereals will offer you nothing at best.

How to Properly Prepare Your Grains

You must learn how to properly treat or prepare grains in order for grains to give you any kind of nutrition! 

Most grains are loaded with phytic acid and other anti-nutrients that will prevent the absorption of many nutrients.

You can buy organic gluten free oats and soak them overnight to release anti-nutrients such as phytic acid.

A "Real" Gluten Free Breakfast Cereal

  • Soak 1 cup of oats in 1 cup of room temperature water with something acidic like 2 Tbsp. of yogurt (makes 2 to 3 servings). 
  • I prefer to soak my oats with raw yogurt for at least 24 hours to increase the digestibility of the oats.
  • After soaking gluten free oats for 24 hours, I boil 1 cup of filtered water (with or without sea salt) and then add in my soaked oats.
  • After 1 minute, I lower the flame and simmer the soaked oats for about 5 minutes to create an oatmeal porridge or gluten free cereal.
  • Turn the flame off and cover the pot for about 10 more minutes before eating.  My mother would always do this when I was a child.  It just tastes better! 

Finally, I'll add in some raw butter and a little raw milk or cream to my gluten free cereal or porridge.

You can also add in raisins or dried cranberries for a little sweetness or a touch of raw honey.  And some sprouted walnuts for a little crunch.
