Gluten Free Breakfasts and Dinners

I have been laying off the gluten lately. I had a few odd problems that I could not explain. I was discussing it with a friend who happens to be nurse and she suggested the elimination diet. It seemed to her that I was having some sort of food reaction.  I struck gold on the first try. I do not need a doctor to figure this one out. It was an instant fix. In a matter of a day all that ailed me was gone.  But for the record, I did see my doctor.  He confirmed what I had suspected.  Along with that I had various nutrient deficiencies.

Here is the thing though. I'm loosing weight too. Maybe I'm eating less? Maybe I'm eating more of the right sort of foods? Since it ends up being mostly protein and vegetables ~ maybe its the protein diet aspect? Maybe this wheat thing keeps you puffy and fluid retained unless you drink TONS of water? Or maybe it was my wheat and thyroid issues combined?  Maybe its this? I dont know, I'm not a doctor. All I know is that I've been loosing about a pound every 2 weeks since. Its AWESOME!!! I do not feel like I'm deprived at all either.

I'm starting to get allot of questions on how to follow this regimen from friends who need to. So I figured I'd post some of my breakfast and dinner ideas for you to feast on. I mean, all my posted meal plans are Gluten Free but a condensed list if you will. Plus I'll suggest Gluten Free brands as an added bonus.
