Need Help With Snacks

I am getting tired of fruit being my only snack. Are there any cookies or mixes or anything that is gluten, soy, dairy and corn and nut free. Xanthan gum is from corn and guar gum makes me sick. I can't find anything without the gums in it. Any suggestions are appreciated!

King Arthur flour is free of those. They have recipes on their site and they talk about making subs.

Living Without magazine has lots of recipes with subs. Have you tried them?

I have looked at King Arthur before. I didn't see anything without xanthan gum but i'll check again!

I'll have to check out that magazine again. I use to subscribe to it but it ran out.

Thanks

Their FLOUR mix will be ok. Their cake, cookie mix won't be.

You don't need gums in cookies - trust me.

Later tonight or tomorrow I'll pm you my chocolate chip cookie recipe. Can you find chips?

What about brownies? I think my brownie recipe will work, too.

Thanks! I haven't found any chocolate chips that are dairy and nut free...but that doesn't mean that there are not any! Also, can I use olive oil in the recipes? If so, I would love to have them. ;)

Thanks! I'll email them to see if they are corn free. I have to watch corn as carefully as gluten.

Thanks! Coconut gives me hives..Thanks for the suggestion though. Hopefully it will help someone else.

Enjoy LIfe is a no go on corn. Per my corn allergen forum.

I guess I will just have to have leftovers for snacks. I was craving something sweet..I ended up making cream of rice (i make my own by grinding rice in my blender) and put 3 heaping tablespoons of brown sugar on it. It's pretty good.

Does anyone have any other ideas?

How about making your own chocolate chips? This recipe uses butter or coconut oil but I made chocolate for homemade Reese's cups and used palm shortening. is there a solid fat you can use? What about LARD?

http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/making-homemade-chocolate-chips-in-detail

******

Substitute as needed for the recipe. I really font know how it will work with olive oil, etc. Margarine would be fine. Leave out the nuts.

Brownies:

1 stick butter or equivalent (I reduce this by 1/4 for gluten-free; you may need less if you use a liquid)

1c sugar

2 eggs

4 tbsp cocoa

3/4 c flour

1/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp vanilla

1/2 c nuts

Seperate and whip egg whites. Set aside.

Mix fat with sugar and egg yolk. Add dry ingredients. Fold in egg nuts then egg whites.

Pour into greased and floured 9x12 pan.

Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. in an electric oven 325, 335 in Corning ware. There's a similar recipe I have that bakes at 250 for 60 minutes. I'd go low instead of high.

Frosting

1/2 stock melted butter

1 tbsp cocoa

1/2 box powdered sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

Melt butter and add cocoa. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Add a bit of milk as needed to moisten and blend to desired texture. Frost brownies when cool enough to touch.

What about non-sweet things like lunchmeat or pepperoni? Hummus and carrots if you can eat sesame? Refried beans and rice chips? Hard-boiled eggs? Pickled herring? Mashed potatoes? Might sound silly, but all good snacks to tide you over till the next meal. My snacks are often just small quantities of meal food.

I roasted three fat beets, a red onion and a fennel bulb today. I cut them up in large bite size chunks and stuck them on a 2 cookie sheets lined with parchment papaer, drizzled some olive oil and S&P on them, and stuck them in the oven for 35 minutes at 375 degrees. They're the bomb! I like those roasted root veggies on their own at room temp or on a bed of lettuce with goat cheese and balsamic vinegrette for a salad. Veggies always taste better when you roast them, and you can puree them to make them into a dip. (Roasted cauliflower and onion with a bit of olive oil and s&p is over the top!) It's good with crackers (I've made my own, they were a pain, but I couldn't do corn or chips then, or any additives), but the veggie dips are also good with fresh carrot or celery sticks, or radishes.

I like a stick blender for the ease of it. (Same with the parchment paper, let the roasted veggies cool, pick up the edges of the paper and funnel them into a bowl, and whirl away. No mayo, no wierd stuff, just olive oil (or whatever oil that suits you) and roasted veggies. It's surprisingly good. I'm off beans at the moment, but I went through a bean dip phase. The good thing is that the bean dip had protein, and that's what you're prbably craving if you're hungry all the time. You could rinse a can of white beans and whirl them up with roasted veggies. I'm pretty sure that would be good stuffed in celery sticks . If you can do eggs, (hard boiled) that's another option. Hope my suggestions are helpful and you feel better soon.

This isn't a mix but pretty easy to make if you can have pumpkin and eggs. How about this?

Mock Chocolate Cake

1/4 c. canned pumpkin

2 TBSP cocoa powder

1 egg white

2 pkts sugar (or sweetener of choice)

2 drops of vanilla extract

pinch salt

Blend all ingredients together, put in a coffee mug & nuke in microwave for 90 seconds.

If you can tolerate eggs, you can make bite-sized meringues (even with maple syrup as a sweetener) with different flavors. A batch using 2 egg whites makes about 2 cookie sheets worth of bite-sized ones & they keep nicely in an air tight container. Single bite-sized ones fit in the mouth so there's not crumbs flying around when you eat them. :)

I recently got hooked on dried sliced mango. They are delicious. Also, my dad just sent me some wasabi flavored seaweed. Sounds strange but they are small pieces almost like a chip. He got them at Trader Joe's. However any Asian market might have something like it. The sesame oil only ones are good too.

If you want something sweet, I second the recommendation for Elana's Pantry. Are you OK with nuts? She uses mostly almond flour. I make her chocolate chip cookies often and they always come out great. She also has a recipe for brownies using mostly almond butter that might work for you ... I haven't tried it but I read the reviews they were almost 100% positive.

Have you tried Chex's gluten free cereal? I'm pretty sure you'd be able to have at least the rice chex. Chexpartymix.com has great recipes that you could make only using rice chex. If you've found pretzels you can have, add some of those. You can also add popcorn, dried fruit, that type of stuff and make your own trail mix.

Gluten free chex has been a lifesaver for me. :)

I was thinking about the chocolate chip problem and remembered a video that I saw on this website: www.lillianstestkitchen.com. She makes her own chips - melts pure chocolate, adds some agave, spreads it on a cookie sheet and freezes for a few minutes to harden, then cuts it into tiny chunks. An extra step than just opening the bag but I bet it tastes amazing!

Enjoy Life makes a good chocolate chip, and chocolate nibs. gluten-free/df/nutfree.

Miss Vickie's makes a good potato chip too, for a snack - I tell myself because they're made with sea salt, it's ok, and healthy. :D Rice cakes (with sea salt - ha!)are good bedtime snack for me, now that I have given up my beloved popcorn. Honestly, I miss my popcorn more than a soft baguette!

A have a couple of ideas that are variations on fruit -- but they would be something a little different. I make a drink in the blender that is like a slush with fresh or frozen fruit. I use enough water to puree the fruit, then add ice to make it really thick. We like to eat it with a spoon. My favorite combination is peaches and strawberries, but you could use whatever you like.

We also like smoothies. I use almond milk (but any milk substitute will do) and bananas as the base and go from there adding berries sometimes, pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices others and my favorite dark chocolate. I use frozen fruit when I have it and still add ice because we like ours really thick -- like ice cream. I know soy and almond milk would be out for you but if you can tolerate rice or hemp milk you might try those. There is also a product called Dari Free that I think is made from potatoes -- but I haven't tried it.

Thanks for the idea for the blender drink. I just bought a bunch of blueberries and strawberries. I think i'll give it a try. :)

Can you have carob chips instead of chocolate? It's been a time since I have checked ingredients but I remember them being fairly "free".

I think you are going to have to work with your own flour mixes. We are running into the same problem being no dairy, no soy, no egg, no this, no that...

I believe "Yummy Earth Organics" may fit your list for sweets. You can get the hard candies or suckers.

    • The anxiety thing is there I take teas, and supplements along with CBD oil to help with it, and long walks and exercise when I get antsy. As for the human interaction it is a mix of other mental issues, and the way I feel about people who can eat gluten. If they are not eating I have no issue talking with people. I mentioned I have issues accepting them as the same species when I see them eating. My reaction to gluten is so ingrained in me that it is not a food but a poison, that watching others eat it causes a subconscious reaction where I find myself avoiding them and looking down on them like something from another planet. I end up disgusted with them and walking away, I will go out of my way to avoid people and places where foods like this are present. This is my TRAUMA part of the gluten exposure, and one of the big things I am trying to address in my life right now. I know it is irrational to do so but I end up doing it, I have never cared about others race, religion, or looks, but if I see them eating a gluten/poison, it somehow changes how I perceive them and interact with them and I hate this part about me. It is taking a lot of mental effort to try to smile and treat them as a human, and not something to be looked down upon in disgust. I just recall that mental state that gluten puts me in with my mind and body turning against me and not doing what I will it and the fear comes back. This diet is pretty much like mine, I take Doctors best Magnesium powder in a tea that is actually brewed with st johns wort (never thought much of it) , I use Liquid Health Stress & Energy along with the Neurologic Support they have, twice-three times a day for B vitamins(along with a bunch of other supplements) . I can not digest meats or carbs well, meats it is a issue with breaking them down same with egg yolks, I literally just burp up the undigested meats hours later. I have found the only way to eat them is to boil/slow cook them til they melt then blend them into a broth and have it with digestive enzymes so only do it with turkey bacon, longhorn, and salmon in small amounts in soups or for flavoring stock for stir frys.  As for Carbs like rice and potatoes I end up getting really gassy and bloated, same with sugars in any amount greater then like the size of my thumb give or take. Oats I only have gluten-free Harvest in about a tbsp amount when tasting recipes of stuff I sell at farmers markets. So I eat mostly fats and protein from egg whites, nuts, seeds, veggies, and vegan protein powders blends balanced for complete proteins. I have at least 1-2 dried fig, dates, handful of banana chips, or a 1/4 of a small fruit with meals for fruits.  My meals are mostly egg white and veggie omelettes, stir frys, and soups, Always with lots of fats and proteins in each meal. I have found having nutritional yeast to help with my mood and energy levels also and find someway of having it in meals often. I keep my foods on rotation and keep getting updated feed back on ratios with my dietician. I also have a rather odd list of foods I can not eat due to allergies/intolerance.
    • It only takes a minute to make a difference. Celiac disease has been overshadowed by the gluten-free diet fad. Getting diagnosed and staying healthy is no piece of cake – those of us who have celiac disease struggle to stay healthy. We need better. We need to be understood. We need a cure.

    • If you are one of the approximately 2-3 million Americans with celiac disease, ZyGluten™ may be taken before you eat out at a restaurant or a friend\'s house, as it may help break down any gluten cross-contamination that you might encounter. View the full article
    • Advil (ibuprofen) is gluten-free, but can be a stomach irritant, especially if taken on an empty stomach. That said, I will also place my bet on the garlic and onions. As Raven said, eating more than once a day may also help. An empty stomach is likely to be an irritable stomach.
    • DaVinci's Pizza has several gluten-free items great gluten-free pizza (well done suggested) and they don't have anything with gluten that goes in the fryer, so wing and fries are great all salad dressing made in house and gluten-free.  Owners mom has Celiac so they're very empathetic. Cheers. And enjoy. I eat there all the time and have NEVER had an issue. And if someone just touches bread then prepares my food its all over for me 6-8 hrs of reaction for me. Also Jimmy Johns @ 17th and Peachtree Street also great just tellm'to change glove and ask for the paper to be placed on the sandwich board before they make it. Also never had an issue but I have only had the Italian style lettuce wrap.
