gluten-free Healthy Snacks?
0

8 posts in this topic

I will be spending a week in a poor west Virginia town with my church. We will be staying in cabins with a refridgerator. No microwave or stove.

The drive down will be two days there and two days back. So living four day off of fast food. I refuse to eat fast food. I'm also a vegetarian so that won't work anyway.

There's a local market in town so I'll be able to buy fresh fruit and some veggies once we get down there. But now I need healthy non perishable gluten free snacks.

I don't eat hardly anything so it doesn't need to be big. So far I have:

A super healthy protein bar (20 grams protein

Some cereal to munch on...either rice, honey chex, Mesa sunrise, or whole O's (what do you suggest)

Is it worth bringing a packet or two of oatmeal to eat cold? (no microwave/stove$

Any other suggestions? Healthy is key here

Larabars or nature valley almond crunch bars, raisins, squeeze packs of Justin's nut butters, homemade trail mix (chex, nuts, raisins, etc). That's all I can think of right now. Hope I helped a tiny bit! Good luck! :)

Salba Seeds & the new kid on the block Savi seeds... They both have a wealth of good things in them...How about dried fruit with out the chemicals of course....I love dates, mango apples & a nut butter...

I found a cookie called perfect fit at whole foods. It is a protein cookie, 150 calories, 4 g. of fiber, 10g. protein.. gluten-free, low sodium, no soy, wheat or egg, hormone free milk protein.. These are made by Boundless Nutrition.Haven't tried it yet but looks good...

try some gopicnic gluten free packs. You can get them at a decent price from amazon. They are non-perishable snack packs at around 400 calories. I always take them with me when I travel.

Peanut butter and rice cakes are also great.

    • Cyclinglady is absolutely correct, after hours of internet research the only gluten-free food available at JNB is a fast food chain called 'Nandos'. I was hoping for a bit more variety, but I'll take what I get.   
    • I'm so confused about my daughter's diagnosis.  I hope somebody can help.   My 4 year old daughter has a swollen belly, stomachaches, and lots of gas.  She does not have diarrhea or delayed growth.  Because of her symptoms and because it runs in the family (2nd degree relatives) I had her tested for celiac.   She was weak positive for TTG (IGA)  and strong positive for DGP (IGG)   TTG (IGA)  8   (0-3 neg, 4-10 weak positive, greater than 10 positive) TTG (IGG)  2   EMA: Negative DGP (IGG)  47  (0-19 negative, 20-30 weak positive, greater than 30 positive) Last week, she had her endoscopy.  The doctor found inflammation and little holes or bumps on her duodenum.  He started her on prevacid and said based on his observations, he was suspicious of celiac, but he would not be able to confirm until the biopsy came back. The biopsy showed no signs of celiac disease.  He said that he could not diagnose her with celiac without the biopsy report saying there was celiac damage.  He said he would categorize her as a potential celiac, keep her on a gluten diet and redo the endoscopy in a year or two to check for damage again.  My questions are: 1.)  If it is not celiac, something is causing her duodenum to be inflamed and have little holes or bumps on it, right?  Could it be a wheat allergy or gluten sensitivity?  What else could it be and how do they test for it?  Given her elevated celiac antibodies, how likely is it to be anything besides celiac causing the damage?  2.)  How likely are false positives for TTG and DGP?  I've heard they are pretty sensitive and specific.  Does getting two positives make false positives less likely? 3.) What have you done in this situation?  I want her to have an official diagnosis to make things easier at school and to feel confident that we are eliminating gluten permanently for a worthy reason, etc.  But, I'm having a hard time imagining keeping her on gluten and waiting for her to get more sick and have more intestinal damage just for a diagnosis.     Thanks in advance for your help.  I'm so overwhelmed and confused.  I hope someone has some insight and experience that will help clear things up for me.            
    • Yeah I actually live in Japan which is pretty similar, because Coeliac disease is rare over here so is the understanding and accommodating it. When I mention Gluten to some restaurants they think I am talking in English and they are unfamiliar with the word in Japanese.    So it seems I can write off my chances of getting some authentic Chinese gluten-free food at the airport, but at least there is a Thai restaurant in T3 so I won't starve. Its called  'Phrik Thai' for future reference. http://en-shopping.bcia.com.cn/store/739.html  
    • While in Boston I found Cheer's  Bloody Mary mix that says gluten-free on the bottle and have had no issues and  tastes pretty good 
    • I always assumed plain coffee was, but I have seen some controversy online about this. I know someone who is gluten free and only buys whole beans and grinds them herself because she doesn't trust how the grounds are processed.
