Good Snacks

I have a few snacks we've picked up that have worked to take on trips - but very few. Anyone else have some favorites? Things they have to make with nothing or very little processed, but are easy to transport? These are what I've got. :)

1. Roasted chickpeas - there are lots of recipes for this on the web. They end up like corn nuts - totally crunchy. I found out that you can do almost any of the roasted chickpea recipes with most beans, too. So we've made crunchy pinto beans, too. Our most basic version just had chickpeas, olive oil, and salt.

2. Roasted squash and melon seeds. These have become a big staple at our house, when they're in season. Any squash we make, we roast the seeds. Honeydew and cantaloupe seeds can be roasted too. After roasting, you have to crack them and discard the shell when you're eating them, like you would sunflower seeds.

3. If you can have whole grain amaranth, shredded coconut, and a liquid, gooey sweetener, you can mix them together to get a consistency that will form little balls. We had to wrap them in wax paper, but they would still travel well. Can't eat this anymore, ourselves, but it was good while it lasted. :-)

4. Cacao nibs, a chopped nut, a dried fruit, a gooey sweetener, and something that could bind them together (like whole grain amaranth or gluten-free oats) will make a kind of granola bar. Maybe a home ground flour might work instead of a whole grain, too.

Looking forward to hear what everyone else is eating when they go out. :-)

We like popcorn. I pop it in olive oil. Dried fruit or other fruit snacks. I buy bags of sliced apples and baby carrots from Costco. Also individual cups of hummus. Can put them in a cooler. Otherwise shelf stable individual hummus that I get at minimus.biz. We also like green beans and other canned beans such as kidney. Not so good for eating in a moving vehicle but great to eat when you stop and can drain the can.

    • That's great, Gertrude! I'm glad your doctors sound more competent than mine. And that you're starting to feel better.  I haven't had any abdominal or joint pain in the last few days, and I feel like I have more energy for sure. I've been feeling a little off/dizzy but that might be from gluten withdrawal.  Good luck with everything! 
    • By the way, I got my biopsy pathology report and the doctor took 2 biopsies, not the recommended 4-6. It says no "significant villous blunting not seen." I don't know if I should laugh or cry---so frustrating.   
    •   Thank you, this does feel helpful and reassuring. Did you end up getting blood tests again after going gluten-free? Do you have to worry about cross contamination as much as with a celiac diagnosis?  How do you explain it to friends and family? Non-Celiac gluten sensitivity sounds so vague and I know it's dumb, but I worry about people not taking me seriously.        
    • Helen, a woman with severe lifelong eczema/dermatitis, wrote to me a few weeks ago, saying "I have taken your advice and been strictly gluten free for five months now. The eczema inflammation is 99% gone and my skin quality has significantly improved. I do still get a bit itchy around my neck area and elbow creases, more so at night when it is warm. I have noticed a significant improvement in my asthma also. I still use antihistamines perhaps once or twice a week for runny nose. Does this mean I will need to be gluten free for life? Which of your books would you say would be the most relevant for someone in my position? Thank you for your assistance, regards, Helen. View the full article
    • Hello and welcome Reading your post it looks like each of your results were within the 'normal' range. There doesn't appear to be mention of a total serum IGA to make sure you have enough of this to begin with to make the test accurate however - but there are others here who are more experienced who may be able to tell you more. There are some other celiac tests: tTG IgA and tTG IgG -DGP IgA and DGP IgG -EMA IgA  -total serum IgA and IgG (control test to ensure tests are not false negatives)   They may not be covered by your provider however. Note that you appear to have been avoiding gluten somewhat already, that could impact on the tests accuracy. Your symptoms sound like they could be gluten related (but then practically everything could!) but you may want to discuss with your doctor whether to push for further testing or move to trial gluten free diet. Some people, like myself, test negative but still find symptoms respond to gluten free.   Best of luck!
