So snacks are the number one requested GF food to help stave off hunger between meals.   Your body is adjusting to life without the bloating swelling effects of gluten and you are learning how to keep it satisfied throughout the day with budget-friendly yummies…so here we go!

Mix and match the items below and organize your shopping and food prep so you can make batches in advance.

Plan your weekly prep to definitely include snacks and leftovers.  It will make you a much happier person if you make you a priority.

Hummus with veggies and gf crackers – Sabra, Tribe, Fantastic Foods and Athenos brands for pre-made are great…carrots, zucchini, cucumber, tomatoes any veg you like.  Do all the veg prep in advance and store cut veggies in water filled containers in the fridge, except tomatoes.

Lettuce wraps – with tuna, chicken, or tofu salad and veggies serve with a gf dressing homemade or store bought.  Hidden Valley, Maple Grove Farms, Marzetti’s, Organicville, and others make GF versions of their dressings.  Check the labels or just make your own at the beginning of the week.  Side note: dressing can be used as marinades for meats… a quick fix for adding great flavor to grill, pan or oven roasting!

Cheese, olives and GF crackers – just have some on hand.  It’s a quick protein fix with a crunch.

Chex mix – Make your own, there are lots of recipes out there.   I like

Nuts, & flavor added nuts  and granola – check out , Blue Diamond, Fisher Nuts and many more.  Read the labels – not all products within a brand are gluten free.

Cut Fruit – melon, apples, pineapple, oranges, bananas, kiwi, papaya, dates & other dried fruits  or any fruit you like either fresh or dried and make a mixed plate of fruits, nuts, cheese and crackers as a quick snack.  Most fruits can be cut in advance and in bulk and stored for the week in the fridge.

Quick roll ups using home made tortillas or bought –  fill with nut butter and fruit, meats and cheese, cream cheese and jelly, nut butter and bananas, eggs, cheese and veggie sauce,  hummus, veggies and cheese, leftovers of any kind…


Popcorn – the popcorn factory has some gluten free options…or make your own I love adding parmesan, rosemary and truffle oil to just popped popcorn, finish with a bit of salt and pepper for a savory option…if you like sweet, toss with cinnamon and sugar or a drizzle of gf white and dark chocolate and nuts…lots of fun options.

Cassava Chips and dip – lots of options and sooooo yummy! add fruit, veggies with pesto, hummus and boursin cheese and you have an amazing snack…

Avocado smoothies – simple mix of avocado, ice honey and your favorite fruit…i like mango, blueberry, dragon fruit or just plain avocado is fantastic…add enough honey to just add a bit of sweet you can add protein powder if you like to boost the nutrition and enjoy! 

Protein bars,  Gomacro, Luna, Kind, Quest.

Fruit bars – my favorite is the That’s All Bars.   Just fruit and only fruit a great take along for a quick fix.

Read labels on everything you buy even if you buy it regularly…manufactures update recipes all the time…

Also, Make sure to get a lot of liquids like water and green or herbal teas…lots of times its really thirst we are craving disguised and hunger…so hydrate between meals.
