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....

    • Hi there!   I follow a low histamine diet that Cycling Lady brought to my attention a long time ago.  Citrus fruits and their juices are histamine releasing foods.  High histamine levels can cause hives just like in an allergic reaction.  Here's a helpful site:   https://www.histamineintolerance.org.uk/about/the-food-diary/the-food-list/ I don't drink orange juice because because of the hives and stomach upset I get from it, and also because I'm type two diabetic and my system can't handle all the sugars in it.  High glucose contributes to inflammation. I also avoid things with added flavors and scents because they often contain sulfur components like sulfites or sulfates.  Corn products are often processed with sulfuric acid.  Some Celiacs, like me, develop a sulfite sensitivity.  Here's a helpful site:  http://www.thepatientceliac.com/tag/celiac-disease-and-sulfite-intolerance/ Garlic and onions are high in sulfites.  People who can't tolerate foods high in sulfites are often deficient in a trace mineral, molybdenum.  Molybdenum is also involved in blood production.  Here's another site:  http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=nutrient&dbid=128 So, there's not always a simple answer.  I'm leary of processed foods because you don't really know how they're processed and what really goes into them.  I'd rather stick to fresh foods.  Hope this helps.
    • No, no, no!  Don't cut yourself off from your friends and social life because you feel you can't eat what everyone else is eating!  I can't think of a single bar or restaurant I've been to where I haven't found something to eat.  It may not always be what I would like to order/eat, but I'm not sitting without food while everyone else is eating!  If I'm going to a private party or someone's home where I'm concerned about food selection, I bring my own, tell the hostess and without making a big deal of it, eat what I brought.  Other times I eat a bit before I go, snack on the veggies or other obviously safe food,  and eat when I get home. If I go shopping for the day or somewhere that it's difficult to pick up a quick gluten-free snack, I put a piece of fruit or a gluten-free granola bar in my purse in case I get hungry.   It's only a big deal if you make it one.  I have been gluten-free for 7 years.  My attitude about food is now this:  eating out is strictly a social event. I always find something to order though at times it seems the gluten-free selections are kind of bland, but I won't go hungry.  If I want a good, tasty meal, I make it for myself at home.  There is nothing that I can't duplicate in my kitchen in a gluten-free version.   It's only been a couple of months for you so I'm hoping you will gradually see that this becomes such a way of life that you won't even give it a second thought.  Your meal prep will take less time as you grow accustomed to this--any new diet takes time to learn.  Good luck and hang in there!
    • Amazing!  You should feel very optimistic!  It sounds like you are doing everything right...great job!!😊😊😊😊
    • Yes, I would ask for the rest of the celiac panel (including the IgA deficiency test).  Discuss this with your child's GI.  He/She may be able to order for you.  Share the CBC results too with him/her.  I would want to know for sure before giving up gluten to support my child, but you need to determine what is best for you!
