Here are the Symptoms

Celiac Disease may appear at any time in a person's life. The disease can be triggered for the first time after surgery, viral infection, severe emotional stress, pregnancy or childbirth. CD is a multi-system, multi-symptom disorder. Symptoms are extremely varied and can often mimic other bowel disorders. Infants, toddlers, and children often exhibit growth failure, vomiting, bloated abdomen and behavioral changes.
Classic symptoms may include:

* abdominal cramping, intestinal gas, distention and bloating
* chronic diarrhea or constipation (or both)
* steatorrhea -- fatty stools
* anemia - unexplained, due to folic acid, B12, or iron deficiency (or all)
* weight loss with large appetite, or weight gain

Other symptoms:

* dental enamel defects
* osteopenia, osteoporosis
* bone or joint pain
* fatigue, weakness and lack of energy
* infertility - male/female
* depression
* Aphthous ulcers

Dermatitis Herpetiformis (DH) is skin manifestation of celiac disease characterized by blistering, intensely itchy skin. The rash has a symmetrical distribution and is most frequently found on the face, elbows, knees and buttocks. DH patients can have gastrointestinal damage without perceptible symptoms.

For crackers I use rice crackers (Rice Thins) from Trader Joes. I have also found them at Safeway but they are higher priced their. I do not eat very many at one time and they go stale fast once the package is opened so make sure to put them in an air tight bag. I also found Corn Crackers at Paley's/Nob Hill but I think that is a more regional store.

Oh, okay: gf flours. If you want premixed gf variety, Pamela's is a good one (kindy pricey). Bob's Red Mill (google for their home site, amazon, or health food store, maybe at Target or Walmart. At least where I am.)

Pamela's gf cookies are also tasty (but high cal). You could make peanut butter cookies: 1 egg, 1 c sugar, 1 c peanut butter (another high cal one but with some protein).

-Celery w/cream cheese or peanut butter/raisins.
-Apples with any nut butter
-Cheetos or Lay's classic (sometimes at gas stations that's all I can find in a pinch)
-GF tortilla chips and salsa and/or guacamole with mashed black beans
-Mary's Gone Crackers flax crackers (amazon or health food store) w/tomato slices sprinkled with herbs (Herbs de Provence is good, or summer savory) dipped in gf cottage cheese


Here's a link to someone's blog with lots of ideas:

The flowers are pretty in your profile pic. I enjoy the pic. Anyway, I'm a big believer in fruit and nuts. There are fruit and nut bars made by a company called KIND. Amazon them. Also, just whole fruits, berries and such. Can't beat putting an apple in your purse - maybe two. They don't fill you up much! lol
