More of an at-home snack, but I love the Zen Soy puddings. Of course, they're not so friendly for anyone with soy allergies, but they are gluten and dairy free.

Like2Play - just FYI peanuts aren't nuts, they're legumes. So you can say you don't eat any nuts. lol

Costco is a great resource for gluten free products. They have all kinds of stuff that is GF!

I struggle with the protein part as well but I HATE nuts. The only nuts I eat are peanuts and that's only in peanut butter form. Any suggestions other than nuts?

Thanks for the reminder - I have extra celery in the house from Thanksgiving. I can put almond butter in it and have it for a snack.

Dots, I think this comes down to salty vs sweet needs. I need the sweet and mostly avoid salty snacks. 3 or 4 apricot halves works great for me as a snack. They are packed with nutrition, adds a colour to the palette of foods and only a tbsp of extra water is needed per apricot half. Which is why I emphasized staying well hydrated. Since I drink water all day long and the evening, it is not a problem for me. It all comes down to individual needs. Fresh fruit is not available in northern climes in winter or is very expensive, was picked green and shipped and gassed to ripen. The dried fruits as the article said, retain all their original nutrition. It works as a healthy snack a couple of times a week as needed for me.

ps. gotta discontinue discussions. I need to pack... emoticon

Nomad, no I can't pop up a bit of science to back up my thoughts re: enzymes and digestion and dried fruit. It's just what I've picked up in reading over the years. I could look around and come back to it if I find something though. Maybe I should have said you have to chew longer to get the enzymes flowing? For me, dried fruits can be hard and chewy is all. They feel like a rock in my gut. Personally, if on the fly, chewing on a dried piece of apricot is fine -and better than a candy bar or something. I do not find them filling however nutritious they are; though they may stave off hunger til a next meal like a piece of gum.

The way you eat dried cranberries in the morning in hot cereal, they sound like they may get reconstituted, which is great. You obviously, also, are very restrained in your eating re: other mentioned portions of dried fruit. My only point is that sometimes others can start eating and not stop, as in a bag of popcorn or chips; to be aware; e.g. A cup of grapes vs a cup of raisins are different calorically.

The ND's comments in the link you provided re: dried fruits pretty much sums it up, and better:

"If someone has digestive problems, with decreased enzymes or hydrochloric acid, dysbiosis or abnormal gut flora, then dehyrated fruit could cause bloating, fermentation, indigestion, acid reflux, and/or gas."

And staying hydrated is key of course, like you said.
emoticon

Also, I think it's worth mention that starting the day with a bit of fat is good for the gallbladder which aids digestion, too, depending on the health of your gallbladder and liver, of course. Everyone's different. (I eat an egg or a smoothie with avocado, a couple of Brazil nuts, for example).

You're welcome! I'm glad you liked it. I've altered my recipe since I originally made it and shared it on SparkRecipes. Quinoa flakes are now in the recipe to increase the protein and nutritioal value.

I discovered that when you alter a recipe and save it in your own recipe box, it is not updated in Spark recipes. You must unshare it and then share it again before it is updated in the Spark shared database and it get's a new link!

asp?recipe=826019

A warning - a number of people are tagging recipes as gluten free that include ingredients such as spelt or kamut. These are not gluten free!
This recipe ended up with a fish tag by accident. I corrected it but the correction is not showing on Spark recipes.

GFNOMAD thanks for the cereal recipe. I tried it yesterday and I loved it! I used blueberries, raisins, almonds, and milled flax.

Ok, here's the list of daily intake:
glass of grapefruit juice before eating breakfast. Starts the digestive system after fasting overnight.
Dried cranberries and frozen blueberries in my hot cereal.
1 small to med banana as mid morning snack
1 of the following: apple/orange/home canned fruit/3 or 4 dried apricots/dried apple equivalent to one fresh apple. The dried fruits are more affordable in winter here. Yesterday it was a small bartlet pear and a 1/2 serving of bome canned cherries.
If it is summertime and lots of affordable fresh fruit I can eat even more fruit.
Dots, did you read some scientific information on the dired fruits?
Since heat is involved in drying fruits, they are probably cooked a tiny bit making them easier to digest. This treads into the theories on food combining which I don't want to get into. I have more to do in life than spend my time on that :)
ps. my sister can't eat this much fruit. She's be running to the toilet.
I drink lots of water and that's why I said to stay well hydrated. It shows in our skin and digestive system if we don't.

Yes, I agree, that's funny re: your experience w/dried fruits. I'd have thought them to be thick, chewy, gummy, and needing extra saliva enzymes to start breaking them down because of lack of water. The lack of water also means your serving is smaller for the same number of calories; it's therefore easier to overeat because you might not feel as full, esp on the fly.

The next question is, "What fruit do you eat, and in what manner?" Maybe then I'll understand.

that's funny Dots because I find dried fruit easier to digest. One does have to count how much one eats, like no more than a normal serving of fruit.

Hi Wendy :)

I don't snack much at restaurants - 'cept for the Wendy's chili. I'm not bored with it yet I guess. If I don't have a snack bar handy, I'm HUNGRY and that chili is wonderful. lol

For other snack ideas, check out other topics (there should be a link for snack bars, too, but I don't have time to find it) in the Food/Recipes forum, and also this link for snacks in particular:
www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes
sa
geboard_thread.asp?board=1448x948x27R>173838


If you think of something new, please add it to the thread.

Be careful with dried fruit as it's sugar is more concentrated (high glycemic) and harder to digest, wouldn't you think?

I keep some trail mix, that I have made myself, in the car. It usually includes raw almonds, walnuts, dried fruit such as cranberries or cherries or banana chips, and occasionally some gfcf chocolate chips. A little bit (about 1/4 cup) keeps me satisfied for quite a while.

1st of all Taco Bell is NOT safe, there's gluten in everything.
Now that I have that off my chest, dried nuts. My Dr wants me to eat more protein and says nuts(no peanuts) are the perfect protein plus you don't need to worry about refrigeration.
If you have Carls Jr they will lettuce wrap ALL their burgers. I still watch them make my sandwich because they will put the lettuce on the same counter the buns have been on if you don't watch. Some stores have dedicated fryers for their fries and some don't so you have to ask.

emoticon Wendy. I too fluctuate between diarreah and constipation but ground flax with my cereal every morning and stayed well hydrated keeps things even.
I always carry a snack with me whether a gf bar (envirokids crispy bars are my latest favourite) or a muffin, thin rice crackers etc. I bake a couple of times a week and keep them in the freezer.
I strongly advise reading our sticky topics and maybe afew others. We have books' worth of information in them.

Wendy, I always have something in the car or a granola type GF bar in my purse. I find dried fruit is a filling snack and not to back on the calories. I like going to Jasons' Deli and eat salad. You can order a chicken breast to go with it. I find I eat a lot of salad when I am out. Just easier.

What are some gf healthy filling snacks? If you are out what do you get for a quick bite to eat? I have looked up several fast food restaurants in town but have already become bored of Taco Bell tostada and Wendy's chili. Any ideas?
