Here are several low oxalate breakfast ideas that would help paint a clear picture of how to prepare one in case someone with oxalate sensitivity needs some guidance.
Well, let me be honest, personally, I like simple to follow recipes, anything complicated that’s for the chefs.
In short, where do you get the time to keep referring when cooking a breakfast, bearing in mind the limited time you have to report to work?
That’s the reason I did some research on low oxalate breakfast ideas to help folks who have to stick to a low oxalate diet. Trust me, (these are not like the so-called vegetarian recipes,) these are ‘hands-down’ super easy to remember and follow.
Low Oxalate Breakfast Ideas or Recipes You Can Substitute
A quick note: There was this post where we tried as much as possible to mention different low oxalate foods, desserts, and snacks you can incorporate to your breakfast, lunch, and dinner, again, for people with oxalate sensitivity, kidney stones, and oxalate-related fibromyalgia pains. You can check it up there in case you need a more comprehensive list of foods low in oxalate to use as lunch and dinner as well.
Now, this post is more focused, it is exclusively meant for low oxalate breakfast ideas. In other words, feel free to refer to it every time you are stuck on what to have for breakfast.
1. Creamy Thick Banana Smoothie
The good about this breakfast option is that bananas are purely low in oxalates per serving, similar to cream –a great plus for the main ingredients. However, the rule is, don’t exceed one serving.
Just to mention, the fact that a food is low in oxalates doesn’t mean you can have an excess of it, always think of oxalates concentration in a foodstuff in terms of per serving.
- 1 cup standard-size creamy, non-fatty milk
- 1 or 2 small banana(s) –can be frozen or chopped
- ½ normal size cup of yogurt should also be non-fat
Preparation: super simple– whizz up using a blender or bar mix, and there it is, your breakfast smoothie is ready.
Nutritional details you may want to know about this recipe are: one breakfast serving of this will provide 348.8 calories, around 300.12 mg of sodium, and 22.3 g of protein. The overall fat content would be 4.75g with a total amount of carbs being 57g. The dietary fiber content in this low oxalate breakfast should be 2.78g.
But here is another NOTE: This recipe is more custom to an Australian dweller who is familiar with dairy products from Aussie. Reason being, these have lower calories, which may be a concern for people who need to lose weight as well as keep their oxalate levels in the check. If this is not convenient for you can search around for lower cal dairy products to incorporate into your breakfast recipe.
2. Oven-Baked Denver Omelette (minimal serving)
To mention upfront, everything making this breakfast should be low fat.
- ½ cup of thinly chopped green onions
- ½ cup red pepper chopped
- 1 cup Kraft free cheddar cheese shredded
- 2 cups of Eggbeaters or your favorite egg alternative but (not whites)
How to prepare: To save time, you want to have your oven on and allow it to be heating slowing to around 370 and 400 degrees. As the temperatures rise, be combining everything together: have the green onion, ham red bell pepper, egg beaters, and cheddar all in your baking pan without any specific protocol.
Cooking: your pan can be any size as much as it fits into the oven, –7.5×7.5, 9×9 or 10×10 inches. Now, place the pan inside and bake the contents for around 25 to 28 minutes, and your breakfast is ready.
3. Pizza Omelet
You know what, researching on pizza omelet as a low oxalate breakfast idea hasn’t been a walk in the park for me, but bravo! It’s finally here and guess what, you’ll like it!
Your ingredients should be:
- 3 medium-sized eggs
- 1 oz 2% milk
- ¼ cup of chopped mushroom
- 9 pepperoni slices
- 1/8 cup of spaghetti
- 2 oz. mozzarella cheese
Preparation: mix eggs and milk then add pepper and some salt to taste. Transfer this into a preheated skillet. After that, layer the mushroom pieces, the pepperoni slices, and your mozzarella cheese onto the ½ mixture containing the egg.
As soon as the edges become firm around the edges, it’s time to fold your omelet into halves. Transfer the omelet to a plate and nicely spread the spaghetti sauce. And your low-carb, and low oxalate breakfast is ready!
Basic nutritional info to note: this breakfast idea would give you 22.2g of protein, 317.4 calories, 22.5g fat, 738.8 mg of sodium and 0.8g dietary fiber.
Feel free to look up later as we will add more snack ideas, desserts, research-proven low oxalate desserts and several other low oxalate breakfast ideas on this post. However, you can create your own list of delicious breakfast recipes by cloning those that exist online.
How is that? Here is the formula, pick any break first idea, see that the main foodstuff and its accompanying ingredients are all low in the chemical –-you can refer to this list of low oxalate foods to master, –-then clone the recipe that you find interesting. (You can as well do the same in case you need some unique low oxalate soup recipes).
Talking of your cloned breakfast ideas and nutritional details to keep in check, you can always drop those specific ingredients that are high in oxalates, those that seem to complicate the recipe, and those that appear to add little or no value to your low oxalate breakfast ideas. Such can be something with protein supply of less than 21.5g, 300g or less of calories, and 0.75g or less content of dietary fiber.
