Allergic to eggs, wheat (grains), and dairy...what to eat?

Hello!

I've been Paleo-ish for a couple years now. I developed some food allergies after a period of intense, chronic stress. I cannot have anything with eggs (aniphylaxis), wheat/grains (bloating and pain), and dairy (bloating and pain). I am also experimenting with not drinking coffee (so sad!) because it seems to upset my stomach, too. I take supplements (including probiotics), and I am trying rather desperately to heal myself. I will be getting a hysterectomy within the next 6 months which will help with my anemia issues. So. My question: what type of breakfast recipes are out there for someone like me that I can take on-the-go? I have to leave my house for work by 6:30am. So far, I've been taking pumpkin 'muffins' made with chia seeds (as a binder), pumpkin, honey, coconut oil, etc...but what else is there that I can make ahead? Meat and veggies for breakfast just doesn't sound appetizing. Any ideas for me?

Thanks!

What about a protein smoothie with coconut milk (or coconut cream for the good fats), a vegan protein powder, and whatever else you like (berries, pumpkin, cocoa for chocolate, etc)?

Or oatmeal with coconut oil, nuts and whatever fruit you like.

I spent a few months with similar restrictions and that was some of the stuff I ate.

The vegan protein powder in a smoothie with coconut milk sounds promising!!! I will have to look and see if I can find one that is GF! Cool! Thank you! I can't eat oatmeal without bloating (I love it, too), and I think it's too carby for me, unfortunately.

Any other ideas out there????

Can you eat flax meal? I make a bread that is just flax meal and water made into dough and baked in the oven....spread thin...I use it for little sandwiches with any kind of meat or a BLT. Or nut butters.

Ooh. Made coconut waffles this morning. I used Eggbeaters instead of eggs and they came out great. I got the waffle plates for my Griddler and am thinking of ways to use it. Pumpkin waffles, banana waffles, protein powder waffles...oopsie waffles. They are square so I can use the waffles for a hamburger or a sandwich.

Do Eggbeaters have eggs in them? If not, what is it made of?

Yes, Eggbeaters are made with real eggs, so should not be consumed by someone allergic to eggs.

Thanks. I think I am going to have to cut out eggs too. I can figure out alternatives to straight egg dishes, but it is the recipes that are perplexing me. I like to make mayo. The eggless recipes look like gak.

I like the Warrior Blend protein. I have similar allergies (not the egg ones though) and I find I tolerate it well. I usually make my smoothies with almond milk

Just a lot of real, whole food. I have the same dietary restrictions as you except for the eggs, and I never find I need a protein shake in order to get my dietary requirements.

veggies
meat/fish/poultry/pork
possibly butter - butter contains a mere fraction of lactose and is tolerated by some dairy-restricted people; it may or may not work for you
nuts
cocoa powder (yum)
oils
beans
fruit
herbs, spices

In no way a deficient diet.

I agree with Mel. I am sorry about your egg allergy. I eat eggs quite regularly, but have recently found that I have a close family member who has developed egg allergy. So frustrating.

I usually have some type of protein for lunch with lots of veggies. My favs are salad greens, cukes, peppers, artichoke, asparagus, and olives. Dinner is lighter and includes a potato or rice with protein. I don't know why, but I have never been able to drink protein shakes? I know it is a fast way to get protein, but I have difficulty drinking them and usually just forgo.

Your breakfast tastes might change with a little time if you give it a try. I used to be a cereal eater, and when I switched to LC I thought this WOE caused intense intestinal problems that made me switch. Luckily I finally realized it was an unknown egg intolerance, and LC actually makes my gut work best now.

But anyway, I was stuck because I needed breakfast food. I ate kosher hot dogs almost every single morning, and it only took weeks until this seemed normal to me in every way. Plus, it was easy to cook, quick to eat, and I really like the taste.

At one point, this sounded terrible - but if you have not given a meat breakfast a try I hope you do. Good luck with what you decide!

I bought an allergy cookbook and it has a bunch of quinoa recipes for breakfast. They aren't low carb though. A quarter cup uncooked has about 25 carbs and they add nuts and fruit.

When we have the weekend family breakfast I usually crumble up some bacon in a bowl with chopped tomatoes and avocado.
