      READ FIRST: Super Sensitive Celiacs Disclaimer   09/23/2015

      This section of the forum is devoted to those who have responses to gluten beyond the experience of the majority of celiacs. It should not be construed as representative of the symptoms you are likely to encounter or precautions you need to take. Only those with extreme reactions need go to the lengths discussed here. Many people with newly diagnosed celiac disease have a condition known as leaky gut syndrome, which can lead to the development of sensitivity to other foods until the gut is healed - which may take as long as one to three years. At that time they are often able to reincorporate into their diet foods to which they have formerly been sensitive. Leaky gut syndrome leads many people to believe they are being exposed to gluten when they are in fact reacting to other foods.

Good Snacks

I have a few snacks we've picked up that have worked to take on trips - but very few. Anyone else have some favorites? Things they have to make with nothing or very little processed, but are easy to transport? These are what I've got. :)

1. Roasted chickpeas - there are lots of recipes for this on the web. They end up like corn nuts - totally crunchy. I found out that you can do almost any of the roasted chickpea recipes with most beans, too. So we've made crunchy pinto beans, too. Our most basic version just had chickpeas, olive oil, and salt.

2. Roasted squash and melon seeds. These have become a big staple at our house, when they're in season. Any squash we make, we roast the seeds. Honeydew and cantaloupe seeds can be roasted too. After roasting, you have to crack them and discard the shell when you're eating them, like you would sunflower seeds.

3. If you can have whole grain amaranth, shredded coconut, and a liquid, gooey sweetener, you can mix them together to get a consistency that will form little balls. We had to wrap them in wax paper, but they would still travel well. Can't eat this anymore, ourselves, but it was good while it lasted. :-)

4. Cacao nibs, a chopped nut, a dried fruit, a gooey sweetener, and something that could bind them together (like whole grain amaranth or gluten-free oats) will make a kind of granola bar. Maybe a home ground flour might work instead of a whole grain, too.

Looking forward to hear what everyone else is eating when they go out. :-)

We like popcorn. I pop it in olive oil. Dried fruit or other fruit snacks. I buy bags of sliced apples and baby carrots from Costco. Also individual cups of hummus. Can put them in a cooler. Otherwise shelf stable individual hummus that I get at minimus.biz. We also like green beans and other canned beans such as kidney. Not so good for eating in a moving vehicle but great to eat when you stop and can drain the can.
