Favorite gluten-free Healthy Snacks ?
0

13 posts in this topic

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.

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!

    • I would be very careful in giving this kind of advice, she is in an advanced stage. I was there and one additional symptom that I was getting was a strong urge to commit suicide so eating gluten for three months might not be the way to go for some people. If a gluten free diet stop the problems them gluten is the problem or a least part of it. I eliminated MSG from my diet because I notice that the common denominator for some products that affected my well being was MSG. I eliminated oats because I notice that I would get canker sores every time I ate it. Wheat is what affect my brain the most, irritability gets uncontrollable, my mental capacity greatly diminish, rash in my arms appear, can't sleep,etc. Barley makes my stomach groan, and constipated. Will try testing how Rye affect me some later time. 
    • Hi Aly and welcome You may want to repost this in a new thread, that way more people will see it and can advise you.  I think you would be much better off getting the celiac test now, if you stay off gluten you will need to go back on it and that can be much harder. That said, loads of your symptoms look like they could be gluten related.  I had a persistent 'trapped nerve' for instance under my eye which would twitch like crazy. Since I went gluten-free doesn't happen any more.  Best of luck! Matt
    • Your scalp sounds like seborrheic dermatitis. I have that and although its better after going gluten-free its very persistent. The dermatologist recommended Nizoral shampoo for it and it does help. I think dairy has a big part to play with skin problems, for me at least. 
    • I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu. I have yet to meet another celiac, so that tells you something about our limitations here. I work in Waikiki and do frequent Rouffage. It is nothing fancy, small place, but keeps me fed when I need something. I also like Greens and Vines. It is a vegan restaurant and worth every penny. Greens and vines sets up at the KCC farmers market on Saturdays too. Places in Waikiki that do offer a gluten-free menu include, PF Changs, Dennys, Big City Diner and California Pizza kitchen. I do not trust those places due to the risk, but they "offer" gluten-free options. I did try and order a beer at Yard House in Waikiki. They label clearly states that it contained wheat, so yeah sent that back with the waiter. I have also tied Doraku in Waikiki. I called ahead and spoke with management. That went well and they offer gluten free soy sauce. There is a deli at Down to Earth Grocery store in Honolulu that has gluten-free options, but the whole foods here do not offer hot food that is gluten free. They do have a hot food bar, but you have to stick to the whole plain salad and veggie options. It's good to hear the hotels here are getting better, beyond Waikiki hotels there is no one really interested in being gluten free.
    • Just found this site today. Did you ever find one? I was diagnosed this year and I live on Oahu.
