I really like homemade popcorn, Mission corn chips and Pace salsa. Betty Crocker cookies, brownies and cake are great and so are the betty crocker frostings. Skittles, Lays Stax chips. I could go on and on...

I really like homemade popcorn.

Yes! And if you oil it properly it is one of the healthiest snacks you can eat, gluten free or otherwise. I like to use a good quality olive oil. Be careful because the warm popcorn brings up and enhances the flavor of the oil: good oil tastes delicious and bad oil tastes awful. So if you try it and it tastes icky, get a better oil. (Hint: if it is out on the store's shelves, it is rancid. Light degrades olive oil rapidly.) Odd as it may sound, the Costco extra virgin olive oil in the square glass bottles - if pulled from the center of the case - is very good oil, if maybe a little bland for Italian tastes. They seem to pick good quality oil and they go through it so fast that it doesn't have time to oxidize (go rancid). Another good source of awesome American grown olive oil is Olivehut.com. Hopefully they are still in business. They can ship you a gallon jug of really good olive oil and if you call you can make sure it is this year's harvest - really fresh. Don't worry about the jug - they pump it from a dark barrel just before shipping it. (I've watched them do it.)

You can also flavor the popcorn with spices which do not add fat or calories. One really good enhancement is epazote. Those of us with Celiac often damaged our intestines before we were diagnosed and the collateral damage can often take the form of IBS or CIBO. Epazote is an herb which helps to reduce the gas that can cause us so much pain.

http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

This is the Frito Lay list for the US. It may be different in another country.

There is a gluten-free candy list from Halloween around here somewhere. I'll move stuff around and see where we put it. Lol

Found it! http://celiacdisease.about.com/od/glutenfreefoodshopping/a/GFcandies.htm

This list isn't the only candy that is gluten-free, but its a good starting point.

I am a huge fan of "well&good muffin mix", if you add raisins to the mix it is perfect!

I love that toblerone flavors are all gluten-free and snickers is also a favourite.

I also eat macarons, as far as I know they are naturally gluten-free.

Chestnut, especially candied chestnut is also gluten-free and soooo good :)

I am a huge fan of snacks as you can tell ;)

I love salty, crunchy snacks. Two of my favorites are Glutino Bagel chips and Glutino pretzels. Potato chips (Lays) and Fritos are right up there.

What are some gluten free snacks/foods you like?

Udi's Snickerdoodle cookies are a great sweet snack! They make my tastebuds sing (and trust me, that's the only singing anyone wants me to do!!)

apples and peanut butter.... end of story. Also, adding honey to peanut butter makes a nice twist

Larabars, Trio bars, Kind bars (none of which I can have atm... but soon again!) fruit leather, especially Stretch Island which is super cheap at Costco. I like to make krispy treats with Pebbles and marshmallows, mixing up flavors of marshmallows and Pebbles for fun. (I usually make really small batches so they don't get hard.) I make a lot of pudding too, tapioca and brown rice, although I gather that Kozy Shack is gluten free.

Could you clarify on Stretch Island, what is it? Can you get it from their website?

My local Costco is not really loaded with items and is a size of a chicken coop, so availability on the web will be a blessing for me.

Trader Joe's salted tortilla chips (round shape, 32oz package) made with corn and Good should taste good brand multigrain tortilla chips, 24 oz package, made with flax, sunflower and sesame needs, Quinoa, Soy, Brown rice are my favorite to go with home made guacamole or Hummus.

The stretch island box sort of looks like the little thing up at the top corner in this link, only it is long and flat at my Costco. http://stretchislandfruit.com/ProductsFruitStrips.aspx The color is the same though and it is always up with the snack foods, things like dried fruit, fruit gummies, things of that sort. I just blew through a box in a month, I don't usually do that. :ph34r: It looks like you can order directly from the company too or find a retailer in your area.

    • Hi. Im currently under consultants at my hospital,  and have just been for a blood test to test for celiacs. My symptoms are.... Low weight (8stone and 5ft6tall) Joint pain,particularly my hips and lower back  Severe pain in my gall bladder area which happens spontaneously... Especially after eating foods containing gluten.  When i have foods with wheat in i pain in my  right side just under my bottom rib, i become a bit spaced out and cant focus on anything. Also get diahorrea aswell. I recently contracted C-Diff and was in hospital for 4 days very poorly. Im 29years old (female) and the doctors r trying to work out what is wrong with me. I have always struggled to gain weight,  even after having 2 children i am still only 8stone. I was just wondering if u think i could have celiacs?  The pain in my side has been on and off for 7years! And the last 3years its been severe. And it definitely comes on as soon as i have gluten/wheat.   
    • Hello we got her biopsy results back and they are normal.  The doc is calling her non celiac gluten intolerant and lactose intolerant.  Now we will just wait to see if the gluten-free diet helps her.  She does have elevated IgG to casein and wheat  I know there is controversy on whether that test is helpful or not but either way we are hoping she gets well going gluten-free    
    • My family was out camping earlier this month to our favorite lake.  They have a restaurant there we have going to for years.  Since I recently went gluten free, I was very nervous about trying out their menu.  Usually, restaurants have a select few items you can choose from that are considered "gluten-free" (i.e. Olive Garden).  However, this restaurant even had French Fries that were in a separate fryer than the rest of fry population.  I considered it a huge treat when they not only went out of their way to make sure you could get sandwiches gluten-free, but also had French fries and a dessert available.  The best part of it was I didn't get sick afterwards.  Yahoo!  Thank goodness it's 3 hours away.
    • too many of us are treated this way, unfortunately   ^^^^^  and many of us have been in the same (no quality of life!  always sick! )  situation and yes, it can be life threatening if left untreated.  so glad you're feeling better   no thanks to the almighty doctor  i have a celiac diagnosis and my g.p. (who i go to - or used to go to - for my check ups, see how my blood pressure is, vitamin levels, etc.  normal maintenance, you know) tried to give me viberzi!!  for my ibs-d !!  what???  i have celiac.  i was furious!!  (i'm still pretty upset)   o, the good news was that he gave me a coupon for the first month.  after that, it's THIRTY DOLLARS A MONTH.   not to mention all the lovely side effects (one of them was diarrhea!!)   no, thanks, buddy....   anyways, rant over lolz - welcome to the forum!
    • Those numbers are all perfect meaning they show you likely don't have celiac.  Those tests are very accurate IF you are eating a normal diet of gluten.  You must be eating gluten for weeks prior to this testing.  So if you have not been then yes these results are not accurate.
