Since we have been having a few posts saying they have nothing to eat but gluten when they are hungry, I thought we could compile a list of our favorite things to eat when there is "nothing" to eat.  I don't mean "pop a chicken in the oven with fresh herbs from my garden".  :P

 

So.....

 

What do you keep with you or in your house for Hunger Emergencies?

 

 

Mine are - Go Picnic boxes  http://www.gopicnic....ets/Gluten-Free

 

 

                  Nature Valley Almond Crunch bars     http://www.natureval...rs/AlmondCrunch

 

                  Small packets of nuts

 

                  Spoonful of PB

Stretch Island Fruit Leather.... omg! We buy it at Costco. I can't eat half the flavors that come in the box these days, which is fine because my husband loves them all. For some sick twisted reason though they don't put the mango ones in the huge box, I have to get those at the health food store. <_<

 

Also, Orville Redenbacher Naturals popcorn single serve bags. These obviously only work at home or where you can get a non-nasty microwave. I've had the buttery salt & cracked pepper and the lime & salt. Both are really great. I prefer the lime though because my husband won't eat it. :P

 

I also try to keep apples in the house. I don't generally eat fresh apples, but if I'm absolutely starving will make a quick batch of fresh applesauce. Of course, nothing wrong with eating them fresh!

 

I keep Larabars and Trio bars around for my husband. I can't do the nuts and dates but when we're going out and my husband is spending the day gluten free with me they make great snacks for him. He has taken a great liking to the Trio bars especially. He never took to Kind bars but I loved them SOOOOO much.

I always have these on hand: nut butter (w/apples or just straight off the spoon), handful of almonds/walnuts/pecans, corn chips with guacamole (I should really own stock in the "Wholly Guacamole" brand!), baby carrots, bell pepper slices, eggs, berries & bananas. My purse/car is stocked with Larabars, just in case and I almost always have a banana in my purse...my hubby calls me a hard core snack hound. :)

I'm kind of bad at remembering to replentish my emergency food supply.

 

Larabars. They have saved me many a time.

Chocolate. as in a piece or two off a good dark chocolate

 

Avocado. All I need is a knife and a spoon, really.

Nuts

Corn chips, or any gluten-free chips really

Banana

Hummus

 

Sometimes I make popcorn (on the stove. I got a whirley pop. I love it) and save extra in baggies.

 

Nothing's wrong with a quick bowl of cereal or piece of toast with peanut butter.

While I try to keep a large stock of frozen muffins in the freezer, fruit on the counter, and eggs in the fridge, there are times I need non-perishables. So, I always keep rice cakes, dried fruits and nuts in the pantry, and some variety of bar food (Lara, Pure Organic, Kind, etc.).

Good thread.  I didn't know about the Nature Valley Almond Bars and I'm looking forward to trying them.  My kids love the Oat and Honey version.

 

For me:

Cheese Sticks

Green Mountain Gringo Tortilla Strips & Salsa

Oscar Mayer Deli Fresh Roast Beef, with shredded cheddar on a Corn Tortilla

Edy's Fruit Bars

I always have fruit and cut up carrots, celery and bell pepper strips on hand. (I'm a "grazer"  :D )

 

Dried fruits and  nuts and seeds of all kinds (Nuts.com and I are great pals)

 

Jif -to-go cups are stashed in my car with Crunchmaster crackers

Cheese

Chobani yogurt

natural applesauce cups

cottage cheese cups

Rice pudding cups

 

I make these big granola cookies and they freeze really well, so you can put them in baggies, let them defrost in your bag or backpack

and eat it when you want.

Giant Granola Oatmeal Cookies

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Makes 12.

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups Certified Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats (Bob's Red Mill, for example)

1 cup Almond or coconut Flour

1/3 cup Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (or you can use Light Brown Sugar)

1/4 cup Quinoa Flakes

1/4 cup Ground Flax seed meal (or Chia Seeds or Ground Hemp Seeds. )

2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

3/4 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt

1 cup Dried Fruit of choice: pick one --or use a combination to equal 1 cup Raisins, Golden Raisins, (SunMaid) or Dried cranberries (Craisins are gluten-free), Dried apples, apricots, cherries, pineapple, mango, etc.

1/2 cup Seeds or Nuts of choice – pick one or use a combination to equal 1/2 cup (Pepitas, Sunflower Seeds, Chopped Pistachios, walnuts, Cashews, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, etc) ..

1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy life Brand)

 

Wet ingredients:

1 egg, beaten

2/3 cup Cold-Pressed Unrefined Coconut Oil or Canola Oil

1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup

1 TBSLP. Vanilla

 

Directions:

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

  2. Pam spray 2 muffin top pans with regular PAM (not Baking PAM—it has wheat in it).

     

3.  Sift together in large bowl: all dry ingredients.

4.  Make small well in center of dry mixture.  Add: beaten egg , oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.

5.  Squish/mix together with hands.  Press into prepared muffin pans. I wet my hand to squish them a bit to form big “cookies”.

6.  Bake for about 14 minutes, or until edges look slightly golden. Center will look a bit undone.

7. Let pans sit for at least 30 minutes on cooling rack before removing cookies from the tins.

8. Cookies store well and they freeze well, too.! I eat one for breakfast on the run  with a banana and I'm good.

 

I use these muffin top pans for these giant cookie bars:
