Since I started my cleanse (gluten-free, dairy-free, red meat free, and refined sugar free), what I was going to snack on was an important consideration. So what are my go-to snacks?
My breakfast has consisted of either gluten-free cereal (courtesy of Nature’s Path – they have quite a variety of gluten-free options) with almond milk, or homemade peanut butter granola bars. I have to say, the homemade granola bars are so yummy I often have them for a snack in addition to having them for breakfast. So good, and so easy to make – you don’t even need to get your mixer out!
Late July is a company I’ve referred to with regards to kids snacks, and I was overjoyed to find that they now make multigrain snack chips that are certified gluten-free!
Sea Salt by the Seashore is a classic flavour that has no dairy in it either (and I found Party Size bags at Homesense for $6.99 – sweet!). Other flavours include Mild Green Mojo (green chiles with cheese & a hint of lime), and Dude Ranch – these would be great for anyone who’s still eating dairy but is gluten-free. Apparently there’s a ton of other flavours as well, so it’s a matter of finding them to try! I have seen them at Planet Organic and Save-on-Foods as well as Homesense.
Prana is a gluten-free Canadian company. I came across their trail mix and it is delicious! They have quite a variety of other varieties as well. They also have organic chia seeds – both whole and ground – which was super exciting for me to try making my very first jam. I’ve always stayed away from jams because of the sugar, and making my own seemed like such an ardous process. With chia seeds – it takes 10 minutes to make, and then you just pop it in the fridge to let it gel up. Yummy and refined sugar-free!
And then there’s the staple we already have at our house, Suzie’s thin cakes, which I normally get in my organic Costco cart. These are awesome on their own, or paired with nut butter and some homemade jam!
Another thing I get at Costco is Annie’s Boom Chicka Pop popcorn made with just organic GMO-free corn, sunflower oil, and sea salt. Yum.
What are some of your favourite gluten free snacks?
