Favorite gluten-free Healthy Snacks ?

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!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
