Hum...let's see. You could buy corn tortillas and roll up what every you choose, ie. meat, cheese, cucumbers, avocado, hummus, pb&j, egg salad, tuna salad, etc. Make some chex mix and add some dried fruit and nuts.

Carrots/fruit sticks with Jiff PB to go, cottage cheese and fruit, nuts and dried fruit are all good or make yourself a smoothie. Yoplait Yogurt and my new favorite, Rudi's Cinnamon Raisin Bread with cream cheese sandwich.

I also want to add that if you have a clinical diagnosis, your college should accommodate your needs. They either should offer you gluten free options or/and supply you with a dedicated area of the cafeteria where you can prepare your own meals. Please do look into that. :)

My college does have a salad bar, but that gets old everyday. My high school used to prepare individual dishes for me, like gluten free pizza and sandwiches, though. Thanks for the tips, those things actually sound good!

Rice stick noodles in broth or stock. Add veggies or meat. Like ramen, but gluten-free.

Salads are good choices - add what you like.

I could live on nachos. Tostitos, refrained beans, salsa, cheese, etc. yummo.

Thanks! I had packages of rice noodles stored away and nothing to do with them until now!

Not sure if any of these are helpful for you. They might help someone who stumbles on the thread.


You want bring along food so things that can go for a few hours without refrigeration in most weather & doesn't need cooking

crackers with peanut butter, almond butter,etc
Corn or rice cakes (check for gluten-free) with "butters"
sandwich meat, sliced cheese, a baggie with lettuce or spinach, & corn or rice cakes
rice salads - cold rice, veggies , mozarella and vinegarette salad dressing
Celery with Pb

thank you for your help! Even being diagnosed last February, i'm still new at this.
