Need Heavy Duty Snack Options

Recommended Posts

My husband has just recently been diagnosed and I need some easy, heavy duty (aka will keep him happy/full), portable snack options for him. He is already doing chips & salsa, potato chips and Mrs. May's, and sometimes Lara Bars. He's not into the fruit with nut butter stuff (he dislikes nut butters in general) and just a piece of fruit won't satisfy him. He also needs to be casein and soy free right now. Any one have suggestions? Brand names would help a lot also so I can quickly find them online or at the store.

Thanks! :D

hummus (most brands are gluten, soy and casein-free, or you can make it easily in a blender)

cocoa chia bars (really good and filling - if you can find them :))

corn thins with lunch meat (I eat Applegate Farms)

anything with avocado is good and filling

alpsnack bars

I can't think of many other packaged snacks that are too filling, but if you stick to basic protiens and fats and get creative enough pretty much anything can be portable.

We like Clif Nectar bars - especially the chocolate walnut flavor.

What about little individual packages of peanuts, cashews or almonds?

Bumble Bars are also good if you can find them.

Homemade trail mix - nuts, dried fruit and chocolate chips, in sandwich bags works too.

Plain Fritos and Frito Bean Dip -- he can find this Fritos anywhere

(added after checking for soy -- Fritos Scoops are safe, Bean Dip and Refried Beans that I checked all have soy in some form or other. Suggest making refried beans from canned pintos for bean dip)

popcorn

Boarshead deli meats and cheese cut into squares with Nut Thins (a favorite lunch for me, probably a snack for your guy)

(checked Nut Thins, they do not contain soy although they are not prepared on a dedicated line)

I posted a recipe I make with Namaste Spice Cake mix, adding a 10 oz pkg of shredded carrots, 4-5 cups of walnuts, 1 cup ground flax seed and a can of crushed pineapple, drained (or mandrin oranges). This makes a dense, high fiber muffin that is very filling but doesn't taste like a "healthy" muffin.

(Namaste stated that it has no soy)

Almond M&Ms (contains soy lecithin)

Underwood Deviled Ham with Nut Thins

(checked the label, no soy in Underwood Deviled Ham or Nut Thins)

Philadelphia Spreadable Chive and Onion Cream Cheese with Nut thins

NOTE: Edited for dairy, will check for soy later. Sorry, that's what happens when I surf on the fly.

(LATER: Soy issues noted above)

I'm on the same search.

I've tried Enjoy Life's soft baked Snickerdoodle cookies recently. There nut and gluten free. I don't like their NO-Oats Oatmeal cookies because the brown rice flakes tend to be to hard(like not cooked well) to chew.

My daughter loves all of their cookoies except for the No Oats Oatmeal. I never tried them so I didn't know what she was complaining about. Now I do!

My daughter likes Shelton Turkey Sticks. She also likes beef jerky although it can be hard to find any that's gluten free. She also likes cans of Vienna sausages. And Nacho Chreese dip with corn chips. It's made of pea protein but it tastes just like real cheese! She also likes Snapea crisps and dried peas.

How about quinoa? You can make up flavored bags of quinoa that he just needs to add hot water too. Some brown sugar, dried fruit, and cinnamon is a favorite around here. Altiplano makes flavored instant quinoa packets, just like oatmeal packets, but I'm not sure if they're casein and soy free. I think they may be though. They're delicious if you like hot cereal. They're very filling and easy to carry along for a snack.

All Enjoy Life products are gluten free, dairy free and soy free. I like the cookies with the exception of the "No Oats oatmeal cookies and the snack bars. They also make a cinnamon granola type cereal. You add nuts to it to make a trail mix.

Sorry, Kassandra, I don't have a recipe. I use Altiplano Quinoa packets. They're just like the instant oatmeal packets. Very tasty. I'm sure you could just buy quinoa flakes and follow the directions on the box adding whatever flavorings you'd want. I like dried apples, cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins on mine. That's what I add to the plain packet of quinoa.

Vlasic pickles are gluten free I believe. I think many are, but I could be wrong.

Thanks Angie for the idea about the quinoa flakes. I just saw these yesterday, and now I will have to buy them next time. Sounds like a good alternative to oatmeal, and very soothing for upset stomachs.

For our trip recently i brought rice cakes, raw almonds and pecans, and Banana Chips. They all worked great for car snaking and adding to the very limited amount of things we can eat in a restraunt ; )

for the love of gluten-free rice krispies, can we all as a group realize that "celiacs" only refers to a group of people with celiac disease. it is not "celiacs or celiac's disease". it drives me nutso!

Why would ANYTHING that isn't a grain have gluten in it? There's a question. Sorry, very cynical about our food supply and our inability to grow and cook our own!

I think that might be a holdover from back when it wasn't generally known that distilled grain vinegar was gluten-free. Now, the only reason I can think of is if they were pickled in malt vinegar. I can't imagine why anyone would do that but if you had tasted some of the pickles my FIL used to give us, you'd believe people will pickle absolutely anything and add some "unexpected" seasonings. :lol::-)
