What can you eat for Breakfast that is Gluten Free, Dairy Free and ensures you stick to the OMS Diet Program?
The OMS Diet Program is a diet that is mainly plant based and free from all dairy products and saturated fats. It also avoids most other fats that are in any way processed or heated. The diet avoids omega 6 fatty acids as much as possible too. Seeds and most nuts, like almonds, walnuts, hazelnuts etc are fine to eat on this diet with the exception of coconuts as they have a very high saturated fat content.
What you eat for breakfast or what you have been eating for breakfast before you started a diet like the one recommended by the OMS Program probably depends quite a lot on where you live. Breakfasts can be hot or cold, contain cereals, protein, fruit and vegetables, can be sweet or savoury.
For the month of November I will post a variety of different breakfast recipes with a mix of savoury and sweet as well as warm and cold breakfast ideas. There will be a mix of Gluten Free and Dairy Free Breakfast Recipes OMS Diet compliant!
