Hey everyone,

 

Newbie here. I am having a hard time figuring out some gluten free foods to take with me when I know I am going to be gone all day. I am on the go a lot, and I need your help brainstorming some food ideas

 

that I can throw in my purse or backpack for those days where I will be gone for several hours. Obviously it can't be perishable. The only thing I have come up with is nuts, gluten free crackers, and potato

 

chips...but I would really like to think of some other options. I plan on buying a small backpack that I can take with me when hubs and I go out for the day, that way I am not tempted to try eating out ( I dont trust

 

eating at restraunts anymore)...Any ideas? I really need your help! Thanks in advance!

All sorts of fruit is good, bananas were practically made for day trips. I like to take Stretch Island fruit leather, frozen grapes in the summer (in a pack that will keep them cold!), dried coconut, veggies like carrots or celery. The sorts of things I would snack on at home. If I'm going to be gone for an entire day I always plan on bringing a pack to keep some things cold and usually have a salad and some yogurt with me.

You can have a small insulated cooler with an ice pack and pack almost anything. (This is what I do when my toddler and I are out for very long.) Things we bring include:

Cheese
Hard boiled egg
Rice cakes w/ peanut butter (wrap in Saran Wrap)
Crackers
Dried fruits
Fresh fruit
Muffins (make ahead in large batches and store for long periods in the freezer)
Nuts
Cut veggies (especially carrots)
Beans/lentils

If I'm uncertain I will find acceptable food, I try to bring a bag of gluten-free pretzels with me and maybe one of those non-perishable hummus squeeze things.  Or a Go Picnic, some mixed (gluten-free) nuts, and a banana.  Bananas can be very filling and hold you over until you can get to something.

Items for when you don't have a refrigerator or microwave: Jif to Go peanut butter cups or chocolate-peanut butter cups with some Nut Thins or gluten-free pretzels or apple slices.  Smartfood and Pirate Booty are gluten-free.  Be careful of potato chips - I always feel glutened with Lays, probably cc from shared lines.  Lara bars or Nature Valley Protein Chewy Bars.  Always keep a couple of those in your purse.  Roll up some ham and cheese in a plastic bag - it will keep just fine for a few hours until lunch.  Make some Chex mix and take a bag of that.  Homemade trail mix of Chex, nuts, raisins, chocolate chips.   Single-serve hummus tubs with baby carrots or lentil chips.  There are premixed tuna salad cups (just discard the crackers) or just plain tuna in single-serve cups.

 

Stash a few plastic forks and spoons and napkins in your bag so you'll be ready for whatever you find.  Lately I have found more and more gluten-free food available in convenience stores - yogurt, cheese sticks, some brands of jerky or pepperoni, fruit, salads, hard-boiled eggs.
