Gluten is becoming an ever-increasing issue for many. With more and more finding they are sensitive or allergic to the foods which commonly contain it. With so much of the food we eat containing wheat derivatives, it is difficult to get away from gluten in a diet that includes processed foods. Those diagnosed with a gluten sensitivity or allergies often struggle for gluten-free breakfast ideas. Thankfully, when you have access to beautiful whole foods you quickly realise there are more naturally gluten-free grains and breakfast options than gluten-containing ones.

Sticking with the ancient grains we can’t miss the opportunity to appreciate the tiny but mighty teff. Teff can be found in the superfood section of most health stores in developed countries. It is locally grown in South Africa and other parts of Africa. Once cooked teff is known for its ability to bind and hold shape, making the grain and flour great for puddings and other dishes. We absolutely love this delicious ginger-infused teff porridge with a mixture of toppings. Well worth a try! Get the recipe here.
Chia puddings are really popular as a quick easy, delicious and nutritious breakfast option. They can be made with dairy, plant milks or water.
