I usually have plain greek yogurt sweetened with honey and/or fresh berries. I sometimes add gf granola if I feel like I'll need a little more substance in the mornings, but usually 6 oz of yogurt and berries will do it for me.

My lunches are usually leftovers as well, but sometimes I bring salads to work for lunch.

My snacks are usually almonds, mixed nuts with dried fruit, or fresh fruits.

I pack protein salads for lunch.

Chicken, cottage cheese (Daisy brand)or fish, with about 5 oz of mixed greens... sometimes I add an chopped egg, anchovies, olives, peppers, mushrooms, grapes or strawberries. Sometimes I put a chopped up baked sweet potato on it that was previously cooked.

I like to put chia seed and nutritional yeast on it, too... balsamic vinegar is my go to for dressing.

For snacks dried figs are super.
They are packed with fiber and also have iron.

for that stuff go for things like trail mix that you make and also there is also the veggies too with some sour cream that you can make with packets from the health food store that are gluten and corn free. I use daisy sour cream since it only has one ingredient in it.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I pack breakfast, lunch, & afternoon snack every day for work. My go-to favorites:

Breakfast-an egg sandwich with turkey bacon & a little cheese either on a Glutino English muffin or separated into 2 corn tortillas (folded like tacos) & a banana

Lunch-veggies w/hummus, some kind of fruit, & then for the "main" dish usually a protein leftover from dinner. If I don't have that, I usually keep some Trader Joe's rice noodle bowls on hand. (99 cents!)

Snack-1/2 cup fruit, 1/2 cup Greek vanilla yogurt, & 1 granola bar crumbled in

For hiking, if you have an insulated lunch tote, how about slices of turkey & cheese, or string cheese, veggies & hummus, fruit. Homemade GF granola, roasted chickpeas and kale. There are some yummy GF chips & crackers out there now too that you can find reasonably priced-I love Food Should Taste This Good's sweet potato tortilla chips & Trader Joe's root vegetable chips. And now I think I'm just naming food cuz it's almost lunch time & I'm getting hungry!

For lunches at work, I do leftovers, salads, yogurt with some granola, hummus and veggies.

If I want super easy and portable, I get a GoPIcnic box. They are nice for work conferences and times when there is going to be food served with a very low likelihood of me being able to eat it.

I'm not a cook, and I'm newly diagnosed so I am open to easy and portable.

For breakfast I have found that the Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls are GF. Eggs, potatoes, bacon, etc.

I tend to always have an apple with with me.

I know, not real helpful, but I want to be a part of the discussion and see what other suggestions there are.

I make my own trail mix with dried fruits, peanuts and cereal. Boiled eggs are very portable. We also do sandwiches in corn tortillas. Lots of veggies and fruits of course. We also do kefir which is like a more liquid yogurt.

I've been GF for 4 years, and can bake and cook a whole lot of GF goodies. BUT, I continually struggle to find good GF quick / portable foods (ie quick breakfast or packable lunch). For lunch I find I eat a lot of leftovers heated up in the office microwave, but I struggle when I want to go hiking and pack a picnic type of lunch. Would love to hear what you guys are doing that is both GF and healthy - as well as easy/portable. Thanks!
