Ensure, unfortunately, has dairy. As does Boost. And all the generics I saw. (I got smacked in the face by a tree this weekend, and twenty stitches in my lip and chin are making real food a problem, and I *WISH* that the enriched meal substitutes were an option, because homemade smoothies, tastier though they may be, are not as complete of a meal without going out and buying expensive liquid multivitamins, and it's hard to justify for just a few days.)

Smacked by a tree?? You poor thing! Hope you heal quickly....

Oooh, wow, hope you are better soon. You could alway do the puree thing. Not tastey at all for meats and veggies, but at least you could get those thing in.

I LOVE my chocolate Bumble Bars. I also love Lara Bars and Clif Nectar bars...with any bar I usually put a nut butter on it...I like fat, lol. Fat is about the only thing that keeps me full.

Okay I'm going to consider this one of the great little secrets I learned from this board. After reading that this morning I went to Whole Foods during my luch hour and picked up some chocolate Clif Nectar Bars and a jar of peanut butter. So good!!! Thanks for the idea. I probably wouldn't have thought of it.

OK- even though I recommended Lara bars because they are better for you than a lot of other stuff out there, I have to admit, I don't really like them. So, I'm going to look into Clif Nectar and Bumble Bars. Which ones are crispier (I'm a crispy texture person)? Which flavors do you recommend?

Clif Nectar bars aren't crispy, but the flavor is good. The chocolate ones are great if you like chocolate. I like them much better than Lara Bars. Haven't tried Bumble Bars but I'm thinking they are on the crispier side...

Bumblebars are sesame seeds, flax seeds, and nuts held together with honey (basically) ... the chocolate is different. I like all flavors, but the chocolate is the best because I'm a woman and women love chocolate! Never thought of adding peanut butter ... great idea!!!

I buy lots of Lara bars, too. Great for you, but I didn't know that they'd be good for the purposes here since they are mostly dried fruit. Now, my husband ate a bite of a Lara bar, then said that my cross would be too much for him to bear. I guess he didn't like it. My teenage daughter loves them and eats them daily as a snack after school before track.

Did you know that if you are lactose intolerant you may be able to tolerate raw cheeses. They are better for you and taste great. They still have the enzymes needed to help you digest. Pasterized cheeses lose the enzymes. Google raw dairy and read about the benefits. You could also try sheep, goat, or water buffalo yogurts. I eat the last one without problems. They are at whole Foods and the company is Woodstock farms out of Vermont. You can also get it on line. Buy it plain and try a little liquid stevia for sweetness. The ones sweetened with maple syrup and honey don't seem to bother my hypoglycemia either.

I don't have much time to read all replies right now... I just wanted to add something.

I just ordered from Market Day. I haven't tried it yet, but they have frozen omletes. You said your son can't have eggs, but if it was frozen and you could just take to work, that might work for you??

Good luck!

I just tried something great. It is called Mrs. May's. They are bags of "granola" they have all different kinds. They are all gluten-free, dairy free, low carb and very good. They aren't too sweet. They travel well and could be addictive. The website is www.mrsmays.com. They are at walmart, target, wholefoods (probably much more expensive there) and sam's club.

Almond butter (or peanut butter) on celery or a rice cake makes a quick and easy breakfast or snack. I also keep raw almonds in my desk at work and on hand at home. When I make smoothies for breakfast, I add rice protein powder to them so they aren't all carbs. If you can find some good sausage, it's an easy thing to make ahead and refrigerate/freeze in ziploc bags for easy breakfasts on the go. I can't do eggs, dairy or soy either and breakfast really is the hardest meal if you're trying to keep the carbs down.

The Bumble Bars are crisp and taste oh so good by themselves, but really good with some nut butter on it. :) They are thin and crispy.

I tend to put nut butter on just about anything, lol. Even tried it on a pear last night...not quite as good as an apple, but it'll do. :D

went to Whole Foods in search of Bumble Bars- no luck. But I got a Clif Nectar vanilla lemon ad while it wasn't crispy, I liked it! I liked it MUCH better than Lara Bars. I will search on for the Bumble.....

I get my Bumblebars at a local health food store that has a large gluten-free section. They carry three flavors. Wild Oats carries the original flavor. I think you can buy them online at bumblebar.com.

You can't go wrong with crispy bacon and raw red pepper strips. Cold boiled eggs are okay. Potato chips. Popcorn. Guacamole. Leftover anything from dinner reheated in the microwave. Hot rice cereal with chopped almonds. Home roasted almonds.

Hope these things help!

Oh I fear something has gone wrong!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i am 99% sure I got glutened. Feel like heck- headache, nausea, the usual symptoms. Any chance of CC with the CLIF Nectar bar? It's either that or I made homemade falafel last night with arrowhead Mills brown rice flour and ate the leftovers for lunch today. I've used it before, but not in awhile.

I'm definitely reacting to something. darn!!!!!

And FYI: This is the disclaimer on CLIF Nectar bars:Strictly speaking, No. Clif Bar Inc. specifies to our bakers that ingredients going into CLIF Nectar do not contain gluten. The food manufacturing process however, is such that we cannot guarantee that trace amounts of gluten will never turn up in our products. These trace amounts can appear despite our best ongoing quality control efforts. If you are profoundly allergic to gluten, you may want to consider not consuming our products or take the same precautions you do with all other pre-packaged and processed foods.

And as many of you know, I'm usually one of the lucky ones. :( An I liked that one too.

I've never reacted to a Clif Nectar bar, but it's a packaged, processed food, even if it's a fairly benign one at that. Can't be ruled out, but neither can the other stuff. With things like that, however, that I've had before without having a problem, I don't throw out the potentially offending item immediately. A LOT of things can go wrong with our bodies, and I give things that have been fine in the past a second change - a number of weeks later when I'm totally healthy - to rule out things like a stomach bug, or other contamination event that I'm unaware of.

Yep- Tiffany- that's usually my M.O. too. Unless the reaction is so severe then ANY potentially offending items all go. At least for a long while.

I wish they made gluten detectors you could carry with you, stick into something and then decide whether or not to eat it. I've heard they do but they're not very reliable. Ahh.. a future invention to dream about.

I keep a small pantry of food at my desk so I can just grab something when I get hungry. For my mid-morning snack, I love to have a rice cake (peanut butter choc are the best) and put peanut butter on them. Delish. I also have fruit, lays stax, and EnerG pretzels.

Thanks for starting this thread, it has given me a lot more ideas.

I keep raw almonds in my desk. They keep for quite a while, and have a good fat/protein ratio. :-) Crunchy too!

Failed misserably. ALL the yogurat was either loaded with extra sugar or "FAT FREE" / "LOW FAT" and that incliudes StoneyFields farms "Plain" yogurt. Grrrrrr. Ended up grabing hamburges, cheese and eggs and leaving. So much junk out there is that low fat/fat free junk. grrrrrr
