There have been a lot of threads about this you might want to look at, too.

Upper right corner has a google box. Google snacks.

One example:9

One of my Favs is Cinnamon Chex or Chocolate Chex. Easy to carry some with you and close to healthy. :)

My boys always liked unsalted dry roasted peanuts

* Frozen banana/orange is a great summer time snack. I cut the banana in half and then halve again then each piece into a freezer bag. The bag is good to hold the banana while eating it frozen.

* My son loves yogurt (I only buy the basic/organic brands that are expensive but not like you need lots for lots of goodness) with banana or other fruit mixed in

* Mandarins - do you have these available locally? My son eats them by the bucket loads - like bananas they come with their own "wrapping" so for us super sensitive they tend to be safest to buy & eat on the run.

* Smoothies. I'm low income but decided a blender would be a great investment in our health. Well worth it. Not only do they fill us up they provide me with a bunch of calories that I am struggling to find lately. Lots of yogurt, honey (if you are a sweet tooth), full cream milk and lots of fresh fruit

Talk of smoothies reminded me. I saw on The Chew where they put the smoothie in Popsicle " makers" and froze them. Kids would really like that!

Some of these are more healthy than others. Just some ideas that I know are safe.

Cozy Shack Rice Pudding or Tapioca cups (in the dairy section)

All natural applesauce cups

Gluten-free cookies or muffins (Bake them or buy them.)

Pamela's Baking Mix is versatile and good for cookies, baked goods. There are many options (check the recipe and baking section on the forum)

Bagel with cream cheese and jam or nut butters. Udi's and Glutino bagels are pretty good (frozen section)

Pamela's and King Arthur gluten-free brownie mixes

Chobani Yogurt or So Delicious coconut milk Yogurts- if you cannot have dairy

Scharr cookies (chocolate-dipped shortbread or the mocha layers--are VERY tasty!)

Lundberg rice cakes or sliced apples and celery sticks with natural peanut butter or almond butter or hummus smeared on

Mary's Gone Crackers, Crunchmaster's or Glutino crackers with cheese or peanut butter or other nut spreads

BOAR's Head or Applegate Farms deli--ham, turkey, pepperoni, salami, proscuitto--most all cold cuts and cheeses

Slices of cantaloupe wrapped in proscuitto

Watermelon with crumbled feta cheese

Peanuts, almonds, cashews. (or make your own trail mix)

SUNMAID raisins, prunes. Craisins by Ocean Spray.

Smoothies- made with coconut milk, various fruits, yogurt, etc.

Potato chips----like Cape Cod, Kettle Brand, Utz

Indiana Popcorn--comes in all flavors--the kettle corn is delicious

Glutino brand pretzels—they come in all flavors even chocolate -coated

Coconut milk, creamer and ice cream ( So Delicious brand is very good)

Organic Corn chips w/salsa, hummus, or Guacamole

Sunflower , pumpkin or flaxseeds

Candy—Hershey's kisses or regular size bars, regular size Reese's cups, Snickers, York peppermint patty, Health Bars, Butterfinger and M &Ms plain and peanut. Ghirardelli squares. These were safe--last I read online--but READ LABELS!

Enjoy Life chocolate chips, chunks and Boom Choco Boom bars (free of ALL top 8 allergens)

Make some Chex mix with gluten-free chex cereals

gluten-free Rice Krispies treats (recipes are online)

gluten-free granola bars

Thinking of more things my kids ate and are a bit healthier:

A Chex mix with the corn & the Rice Chex, peanuts, raisins, M&Ms or Nestlé choco chips. Kids don't need a seasoning and baking in the oven mix.

PB on celery or apples or pancakes or waffles.

Cold cut roll- ups - roll a slice of ham or turkey around a piece of cheese & use a toothpick!

Pretty much anything like a hot dog or chunk of cheese or meat or melon or fruit on a toothpick especially if you let them stab the food themselves.

Yogurt

Yogurt as a fruit dip for toothpick fruit

Marshmallows ( could be added to the toothpick fruit)

Popcorn ( not good on toothpick)

These cookies that freeze well and taste great frozen:

Emeril’s Peanut Butter Cookies

Ingredients

· 1 cup creamy peanut butter

· 1/2 cup granulated sugar

· 1/2 cup packed light brown sugar

· 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

· 1 large egg, beaten

· 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

· Cooking Directions

Prep time: 5 minutes

Cook time: 10 minutes

Total: 15 minutes

1. Position two oven racks in the center of the oven and preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Combine all the ingredients in a bowl, and stir with a wooden spoon until smooth.

3. Divide the dough into 24 portions, about 1 heaping tablespoon each. Roll each portion between your hands to form a smooth ball. Place the balls of dough on ungreased cookie sheets, spacing them 1 inch apart. You should get about 12 cookies per sheet. Using

a fork, press on the dough in two directions to form a crosshatch pattern.

4. Bake the cookies, rotating the sheets between oven racks and turning them back to front midway, until the cookies are puffed and lightly golden, about 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheets from the oven and let the cookies cool on the sheets. Then remove them with a metal spatula.

Makes about 24 cookies

    • Hi Whitepaw Your question about what was I eating before I fell ill is a good one.  I had given a party the previous month and there was a lot of cake left over and what is more, it was all gluten free because I had made it!  So I was eating maybe a couple of slices a day...  I was taking soluable aspirin when I shouldn't take it, really.  I was also taking iron supplements.   And adding chilli to a lot of my food - normally not a problem.   And I had a huge amount of stress going on having just completed a project and also having tests on a lump on my tongue. Oh yes - and  I ate some marshmallows which may have contained gluten?  And my son had a stomach virus at the time. High fat food + aspirin + iron supplements + chilli + stress+ possible glutening + stomach virus?  = gastritis!! I also ate quite a lot of walnuts the days before it got really bad so maybe they didn't help. I need to be much more careful - it has taught me a lesson. I'm particularly cross with myself about the aspirin and also not checking the marshmallow ingredients as I am usually so careful. I know exactly what you mean about dreading the next meal - last night I had chicken and potato again but added a tiny bit of bolognese and I actually enjoyed the meal, which I think meant it sat easier in my stomach.   I think that there is a psychological element to acute gastritis, too.  I think if one is stressed it can hang around a lot longer.  I have read a few posts from people who found after trying to do all the right things to get better it was going onto medication to help with stress that actually helped them get better in the end.  I can see that - because if I could hear the children fighting, or had a stressful conversation with someone, I could actually feel my stomach react. Anyway - thank you for your help, I am so grateful. And great idea about the food diary.  Perhaps, also, worth making a note about stress factors on a particular day, and what meds one was on.  I think ompremazole was a great way to stop the gnawing pain for me but since I have lowered the dose I have to say that a lot of the bloating and feeling of nausea has gone. I think if I ever get gastritis again I'll stick myself on a gastritis diet first, just for a few days.   If that doesn't help I'll probably check with my doctor but take ompremazole for maybe two to three weeks til the gnawing stops, then taper down.  I hope it won't happen again though!  There is no doubt about it, it is a drug to be taken with caution, but I have to say I have heard some success stories too of people who took it short term and were helped tremendously.  I think tapering off it is probably a good idea, though, because I do have a friend who I think is suffering from rebound at the moment by coming off an inhibitor cold turkey.
    • Well thanks everyone seriously. I'm sure this will get better and I'm thankful this reaction is normal. So guilty when I think of others worse off than me. I will read and read and read until I've taught myself to feel better. And then help others ((((hugs all around)))
    • I'm curious to hear updates on your EC condition.   Thanks
    • @Larkie how are you lips doing now? Have you found something that worked for you yet? I'm curious and eager for updates from anyone who overcame this condition. Thanks
    • The fullness of the Eucharist is found in the wine alone. However, glutenfreewatchdog did an article on the low gluten hosts recently. She tested a single host from the Benedictine sisters and found it to contain 0.0017 mg of gluten. Compare that to the 0.57mg found in a piece of gluten free bread. The amount of gluten you are exposed to is negligible if you take a low gluten host Here's a GOOD article to read.... http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/amp/news/gluten-and-communion-whats-a-celiac-to-do-72220/ And, finally, I would strongly encourage you to review the articles you are posting and using legitimate news sources. The National Catholic Reporter is widely known to be a source of inaccurate Catholic news and most Catholics disregard the information that comes from their paper. The Catholic church is not excluding anyone from receiving Holy Communion.
