Easy Gluten-Free Snack Ideas
0

6 posts in this topic

I'm only a couple months into this whole gluten free thing, and find myself in a phase where I'm skipping eating because it is such a pain to cook everything from scratch. And I suspect that the prepared foods labeled gluten-free that I've tried are a source of accidental glutening, those parts per million still allowed enough to get my body back onto the gluten roller coaster ride.

So what I'm looking for are gluten-free snack ideas. Right now, I've got popcorn, apples, nuts, and cut veggies, all good for the crunch factor.

But I need more ideas for things I can just walk into the kitchen and grab without having to peal, cook, or clean up after. (I don't have a dishwasher which isn't helping.)

What are some of your favorite go-to snack foods, preferably those that don't need much preparation and would fall on the healthy side of the spectrum while stir fulfilling cravings?

Or has anyone found that a particular brand of prepared foods actually is gluten-free rather than just labeled such?

I need inspiration!

Thanks in advance.

Our go to snacks are Kind bars and yogurt. Also cheese and crackers. We love the multigrain ones sold at Costco. I can't remember the name right now. My daughter likes Glutino plain crackers and the bagel chips. (I can never find the bagel chips in our Kroger so I stock up when I can find them.). Hummus is a great option too. You can find it in small servings in the grocery. Welcome to the gluten-free community. You will get the hang of it in no time!

Crunchmaster? http://www.crunchmaster.com/home.aspx Cheapest at Costco or Sams Club but I have found small bags at Walmart & regular groceries by the fancy cheese.

Love the bagel chips, too http://www.glutino.com/our-products/snacks/bagel-chips/parmesan-garlic-bagel-chips/

I get these cheese sticks but you could cut up a block of cheese and keep in the fridge.

Go Picnic boxes These aren't exactly a snack but you could eat the different parts thru out the day or use it as ideas of safe products. Just be careful, a few of these are not gluten-free. http://www.gopicnic.com/Sunbutter-Crackers_2

U.S.A. list for FRito LAy - http://www.fritolay.com/your-health/us-products-not-containing-gluten-ingredients.html

To go with that http://eatwholly.com/products/wholly-guacamole/classic-snack-pack.html

I couldn't find a thread we had recently about snacks. Maybe if you google snacks in the top right corner you will find something. We love our snacks on this forum.

glutino makes two flavors of bagels chips, add some brushetta.. Roll a cheese slice & a deli meat slice ,wrap in a lettuce leaf..

Add peanut butter to apples or banana's.. Protein bars.... fruit smoothies, crackers & cheese whiz.... celery with cream cheese..

Sorry to have to say this but your kitchen has now become your best bud!!!!! There is nothing convienent about being gluten-free ! After ten years of being gluten-free it still requires lots of planning but I can say that has become so much easier...I always have a gluten-free goodie bag in my car, at work & in my purse...I always have sweets baked & frozen to takeout on a minutes notice.. I also keep a dinner size portion of lasagne froze, pizzas & a few other things just in case I get invited out to eat .So that way I'm not depriving myself of any of the pleasures of friendships or eating....I know many will say eat before you go , graze while there on veggies but for me that is now getting very old.. I would just rather prepare ahead of time & match what the person is serving to the wheat eaters... Its a win win....

    • I can not help you except to offer some emotional support.  You are not crazy!  You can get glutened on a farm.  Here is a study: http://www.nejm.org/doi/full/10.1056/NEJMc063112#t=article This topic has come up before: Hugs!      
    • I know I got glutened after handling some straw last year helping out decorating at the farmers market then going to eat something without washing my hands. I later learned it was wheat straw, some of them still had the heads on them and everything. Gave that area wide walk around after that, I did not have much issues with inhalation with it. But if your there with a thrasher running, down wind during the harvest.......I imagine it might be hell if your super sensitive. If you get skin reactions that easily from it I guess taking a vacation during harvest? Try staying indoors, dust mask, long sleeves and pants hope for the best.......I am just throwing some ideas out there. Maybe someone can help a bit more.
    • Hi i haven't been diagnosed yet. Bloodwork was negative (on gluten free diet) and I'm awaiting skin biopsy results  I have DH on the front of my thighs. The dermatologist says DH only happens on knees and elbows therefore I don't have it. It's itchy as hell, blisters, purple scans as It heals, migrates around but always in that spot on both legs. It takes 5 days after exposure to gluten for it to show up and it can last for a month. I throw up 24 hours after exposure, GI symptoms 36 hours after that last for about a week. I also will have a panic attack somewhere in that time.  I've been gluten free since December. Rash went away after a week of no gluten but came back after a few months (I ate a rice Crispie square)  My problem is this. I live in a farming community. I just filled my dogs kennel with straw not even THINKING about gluten. This was last week. All symptoms happened in order and now the DH is back. How the hell am I going to survive? I can stop using it on my property but what if it's in the air during Harvest time? I thought I had a mental handle on this but I'm devastated and terrified. My husband doubts it's possible the straw Glutened me but I know it did. What if this summer the air literally kills me? Has anyone dealt with this? I feel like I'm going insane, I'm so obsessed with this and now I'm itchy and sick too 😥 
    • It's good to be aware isn't it. Medical research has verified airborne particles can be problematic and hopefully there will be greater refinement in the research to establish greater understanding over time.  The site manager at the construction site informed me that my symptoms starting coincided with when the work with cement started. As I got sick from plaster in my house I am thinking this could be related. I was honest with my doctor about my symptoms and said I thought it had something to do with working next to a construction site. He said it sounds like an allergice response and said that it could be related to gluten symptoms but that these things are poorly understood.  The cement work nearest my window is finishing this week and I'm due to return to my job. Relief! X 
    • Dairy is definitely the thing to put on hold for a while -  you may eventually like to introduce some hard cheese like cheddar which I could tolerate for months before I went back to drinking milk again. Best to avoid tight waistbands if you can because even four years after diagnosis I find that I still get quite bloated at times and tight belts are painful in a way they never were before. Peppermint tea helps some people if they are suffering from trapped wind. Walking helps too, I find.
