Easy Gluten-Free Snack Ideas
0

6 posts in this topic

I'm only a couple months into this whole gluten free thing, and find myself in a phase where I'm skipping eating because it is such a pain to cook everything from scratch. And I suspect that the prepared foods labeled gluten-free that I've tried are a source of accidental glutening, those parts per million still allowed enough to get my body back onto the gluten roller coaster ride.

So what I'm looking for are gluten-free snack ideas. Right now, I've got popcorn, apples, nuts, and cut veggies, all good for the crunch factor.

But I need more ideas for things I can just walk into the kitchen and grab without having to peal, cook, or clean up after. (I don't have a dishwasher which isn't helping.)

What are some of your favorite go-to snack foods, preferably those that don't need much preparation and would fall on the healthy side of the spectrum while stir fulfilling cravings?

Or has anyone found that a particular brand of prepared foods actually is gluten-free rather than just labeled such?

I need inspiration!

Thanks in advance.

Our go to snacks are Kind bars and yogurt. Also cheese and crackers. We love the multigrain ones sold at Costco. I can't remember the name right now. My daughter likes Glutino plain crackers and the bagel chips. (I can never find the bagel chips in our Kroger so I stock up when I can find them.). Hummus is a great option too. You can find it in small servings in the grocery. Welcome to the gluten-free community. You will get the hang of it in no time!

Crunchmaster? http://www.crunchmaster.com/home.aspx Cheapest at Costco or Sams Club but I have found small bags at Walmart & regular groceries by the fancy cheese.

Love the bagel chips, too http://www.glutino.com/our-products/snacks/bagel-chips/parmesan-garlic-bagel-chips/

I get these cheese sticks but you could cut up a block of cheese and keep in the fridge.

Go Picnic boxes These aren't exactly a snack but you could eat the different parts thru out the day or use it as ideas of safe products. Just be careful, a few of these are not gluten-free. http://www.gopicnic.com/Sunbutter-Crackers_2

U.S.A. list for FRito LAy - http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

To go with that http://eatwholly.com/products/wholly-guacamole/classic-snack-pack.html

I couldn't find a thread we had recently about snacks. Maybe if you google snacks in the top right corner you will find something. We love our snacks on this forum.

glutino makes two flavors of bagels chips, add some brushetta.. Roll a cheese slice & a deli meat slice ,wrap in a lettuce leaf..

Add peanut butter to apples or banana's.. Protein bars.... fruit smoothies, crackers & cheese whiz.... celery with cream cheese..

Sorry to have to say this but your kitchen has now become your best bud!!!!! There is nothing convienent about being gluten-free ! After ten years of being gluten-free it still requires lots of planning but I can say that has become so much easier...I always have a gluten-free goodie bag in my car, at work & in my purse...I always have sweets baked & frozen to takeout on a minutes notice.. I also keep a dinner size portion of lasagne froze, pizzas & a few other things just in case I get invited out to eat .So that way I'm not depriving myself of any of the pleasures of friendships or eating....I know many will say eat before you go , graze while there on veggies but for me that is now getting very old.. I would just rather prepare ahead of time & match what the person is serving to the wheat eaters... Its a win win....

      I agree with everything cyclinglady said. You need to be tested BEFORE you go gluten free!!!!!! I was just reading an interview with Joseph A. Murray, MD who is head of the celiac dept. at Mayo Clinic & one of the top celiac experts & researchers in the world. He talks about this subject of going gluten free before testing many times during this interview. It's interesting reading. Please take a little time to read it all the way through. http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/820397_3

      That's interesting. I asked her if there was a blood test I could take, she said no. I don't think she feels I have celiac disease, per se, just wants to rule out an allergy or sensitivity to gluten. If after the 6 weeks, there is no difference, she suggested eliminating something else from my diet. She mentioned leaky gut and GMOs as well. Thanks for your input. I appreciated it.
    • Eating food cooked on a grill (eg, quesadillas, fish)
      In Mexican restaurants, I ask them to heat the corn tortillas in foil.  Also, make sure you ask if the chips are made in a dedicated fryer.

      Your GI is sadly mis-informed!  You should be tested for Celiac Disease before embarking on a gluten free diet.  Celiac Disease should be ruled out first!  So many doctors think that you have to be malnourished and wasting away to have celiac disease -- not true!  You can develop celiac disease at ANY age.  Do you have any other autoimmune disorders?   Celiac disease is also genetic.  So, if you have it, your kids and sibliings should be tested even if they are symptom free!  Celiac Disease has so many other issues that come with having it.  That's why having a proper diagnosis is important.  You will get the care you need.  Also, sticking to a life-long especially when you are older and it is hard to make changes in general (hey, I'm there!).    Your GP can actually order the celiac blood panel.  In addition, I would search around for another GI (one who is celiac savvy).   Here's a link regarding the exact tests: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ I encourage you to read up on celiac disease.  Only you can be your best health advocate!  I wish you well!  Feel free to ask any questions!  
    • Enjoy Life/ Perky's Cereal
      I am super bummed. I just went to order my breakfast staple for the last 10 years from Amazon  - my case of Enjoy Life's Crunchy Rice - over the last number of years it has gone though name and packaging changes but it has always been there for me for breakfast There is no more in stock at  Amazon so I contacted the company and found out that they are no longer going to be making any cereals. No Crunchy Rice or Crunchy Flax .  Super sad.  I need to find a replacement and i am very picky. I am looking for a simple cereal not sweet and not mushy in milk. I am not able to eat corn so it can not contain corn.  Any ideas for me? Michele

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
