Yep, snacks. I need some ideas. I have back to back classes on monday and wedesday and i know for a fact nothing that is sold in the school store/snack bar are gluten free. Soooo do you guys have some ideas for me? If it helps any i'll be living in the dorms again (the food staff already knows of my needs due to my excellent disability councler).

I was thinking:

apple with peanutbutter

cheese

rice balls? XD

I eat Nature Valley's Almond Crunch bars. They can hold me over an hour or two on days I don't have time to eat lunch. They are really yummy, too! Otherwise, Blue Diamond Nut Thins are also gluten-free, come in a variety of flavors and are horribly addictive. :D And Snickers bars!!!

Anemia is gone for the first time in my life, Yay!

Teeth are cleaner according to my dentist (interesting, eh???)

Eyesight has improved for the first time in my life (another interesting thing!)

**My advice to the newly diagnosed** HANG IN THERE!! It gets better and is so worth the seemly long road to getting better. Just be happy you can make yourself healthy with a diet change, and not have to take pills for the rest of your life. :D

I feel so much better in general when I bring a snack to work to eat at about 11.

I try to have at least one protein and one veggie on the plate, and a fruit too if I can.

For proteins: almonds, cubed mozzarella cheese, peanut butter

For veggies: snap peas, carrots

For fruit: plum, pear, apple, banana

All of these things are really easy to pack up and you can mix and match based on what you have and what you feel like. You could also put a lean meat, like cubed turkey or chicken, in the protein column but then refrigeration is required and it's less convenient.


Sick and tired of being sick and tired.

ZonePerfect bars (check labels, not all are gluten-free)

They have a lot of protein so they are filling.

snack bars, fruit, and nuts are all obvious choices. But if you can/want to do a little cooking, i recommend keeping a hearty salad in the fridge for quick meals or on the go snacks. Something like an egg salad or the Olivia Salad (i pasted the recipe below) is great for either a gluten free diet or high protein diet. To make a sandwich use gluten free bread obviously.

Ingredients:

2 Cups Chicken Meat (chopped)

1 Cup Potatoes (chopped)

1 Cup Eggs (chopped)

1 Cup Peas

1 1/2 Cup Pickled Persian Cucumbers (chopped)

1 1/2 Cups Mayonnaise

Kosher Salt

Black Pepper

Directions:

1. Boil a chicken, potatos, peas, and eggs all until cooked basically. Remove let cool.

2. Ounce cooled remove 2 cups of the chicken meat onto a cutting board. Chop the chicken, potatoes, eggs, and pickles add to bowl.

3. Add mayonnaise, peas, and season with salt/pepper. Mix, taste for seasoning again.

4. Chill in the fridge before serving.

Just ran across fruity pebbles and cocoa pebbles treats that are clearly marked gluten free. I tried a fruitty pebble treat and it was tolerable. Was never a big fan of the "pebbles" cereals though. I would imagine that this would be a great on the go snack idea for anyone.
