Easy Gluten-Free Snack Ideasrecipes
Posted 12 January 2013 - 11:27 PM
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.c...ic-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....tter-Crackers_2

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.

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....
