Gluten-free travel made easy
Over the years we have implement numerous gluten-free breakfast recipes at the requests of guests who had Celiac Disease or were Wheat Sensitive or Gluten Intolerance. Other guests wanted a low carbohydrate or gluten-free breakfast simply for dietary choices. I never really realized how many places that wheat hides until I discovered I was Gluten Intolerant in October 2013. A teaspoon of soya sauce or Worcestershire sauce was enough to literally put my stomach in knots. After going through a brief mourning period and saying farewell to my old friend wheat, barley and rye, I discovered that gluten-free eating is easy once you discover good gluten free recipes.
For those of us who need to avoid the wheat (and rye and barley), finding healthy breakfast alternatives when traveling can be especially challenging. I brought 2 slices of Udi’s Gluten-free bread with me to a restaurant in Hilton Head, SC one morning and ask the waiter if he could toast them for me because I wanted to have bread with my eggs. Another place we stopped at in Key Largo offered only a continental breakfast full of pastries and cereals with no gluten-free options and no fruit.
At the Boatel we offer interesting morning meals that are appropriate for gluten intolerance living and more importantly are delicious breakfast dishes that everyone can enjoy.
The Crustless Quiche or Frittata
Taking the crust out of the quiche is an easy way to make a healthy and satisfying breakfast option especially when it is served with beautiful selection of fresh fruit. This one is packed with cheese and diced vegetables like zucchini and peppers which not only make it delicious but colorful. Regular or gluten-free breakfast is also available.
Egg Benedict with a Twist
Poached eggs with polenta (baked cornmeal) is a great alternative to that traditional Egg Benedict with an English muffin and hollandaise sauce. We have added refreshing low fat but delicious tasting fresh salsa with herbs from our garden. You won’t miss the bread or the heavy sauce with this delicious breakfast.
Gluten-free Amish Oatmeal
I have learned to use some of my favorite recipes liked this delicious Amish oatmeal and convert it by using gluten-free oats. It tastes exact the same but there are no issues with cross contamination for people with Celiac Disease. Try it with a little bit of maple syrup on the top. If it’s not on the menu be sure to ask for it.
So rest assured that when you are staying at Making Waves Boatel you will find wonderful breakfast options that are so tasty you’ll forget they are gluten-free. Please let me know if you would like me to send you any of these recipes.
