Ok, so I am getting bored with fruits, yogurts, cottage cheese....having a hard time thinking of something for a healthy snack, I"m trying to get away from sugary processed foods. Does anyone have any ideas? Does anyone here combine carbs with a protein? any ideas for doing that? I need to lose my muffin stomach.

If I do not have a protein with a carb, I feel lousy and my blood sugars dive and spike, so in addition to the foods you have listed, I also smear some kind of nut butter (peanut, almond, cashew) on celery sticks, apple slices or on a few Crunchmaster crackers.

Nuts work well. :)

Also, I like a little cheese on my crackers. :)

(this was a lot harder for me when I had to avoid dairy for almost a year!) :rolleyes:

Some people like hummus (not I)
and also, guacamole with a few corn chips are good.

I make sorbets of all kinds. The last one I made was lemon. It's really quick and easy and great for the warmer weather. Cheap too.

I don't know if you'd call this a snack, but it's great for elevenses or afternoon tea.

Boil an egg til the yolk is left gooey. Toast one slice of (presumably) gluten-free bread.

Cut egg in half, cut toast into strips. Dip toast in egg yolk, put in mouth, chew, swallow, enjoy! It's called "egg and soldiers" and it's my favourite thing to eat besides chocolate.

Not just with fruit, but add veggies and yogurt too. :)

Irish, I haven't because it is so simple. All you do is take 2 cups of water and put it in a pot with 1 and 1/2 cups of sugar and use 4 cups of any fruit that you want. Put the fruit in a blender until it's all liquidy and then strain it if it's fruit with seeds like raspberries. Pour it into the sugar mixture and put it in an ice cream maker until it's frozen.

With lemon sorbet, you just use the lemon juice with no blender or straining. Same with lime or orange.

Crustless pumpkin pie is good too! Look on the Libby's website. I just use water in place of the milk in it and it works every time. :)

cool!
So, do you use the same amount---4 cups of straight lemon, lime or orange juice too?

It might not be a reality for you (because they can sometimes run pretty pricey), but what about gluten free power bars? there's a whole industry devoted to coming up with gluten-free healthy snacks for those living active lifestyles... I'm a big fan of NoGii, myself!

If you can't find them near you, there are all sorts of online stores that'll sell them!
