If you can’t eat gluten, chances are you carry your own gluten-free snacks wherever you go.
I personally carry a bar or piece of fruit in my purse at all times, but bars and fruit can get old after awhile. That’s why I want to introduce you to three on-the-go snacking brands that I’ve enjoyed a lot recently. I figured, who better to share these gluten-free snacks with than you!
[UPDATE: Please visit this article for a comprehensive list of gluten-free snack ideas.]
Three Convenient On-the-Go Gluten-Free Snacks
Wild Garden Hummus Snack Packs: Wild Garden makes a variety of hummus blends (traditional hummus or roasted garlic hummus, for example) conveniently packaged in tube for on the go snacking. Each pack comes with a hummus tube and a gluten free chip or cracker. I love that these snack packs require no refrigeration and can easily fit inside your purse for convenient snacking on the go. I also love that chickpeas are a good source of fiber, protein, folic acid, magnesium, soluble fiber and zinc… and the hummus tasted pretty good too! You can buy Wild Garden Snack Packs on Amazon.
Cucina and Amore Quinoa Meals: I really enjoy Cucina and Amore’s Quinoa Meals when I’m on the go. Each meal comes with cooked quinoa and a flavorful topping (we like the roasted artichoke the most at our house). Quinoa is a true superfood that contains all nine essential amino acids, making it a complete protein. Each cup is fully cooked and ready to eat! I had to bring a disposable lunch for my daughter’s field trip last month (I was the parent volunteer) and this was an easy lunch to bring – just threw one in my purse and lunch was ready! BTW, my son loves these so much he takes one for lunch at least once per week. Makes me proud. You can purchase Cucina & Amore Quinoa Meals on Amazon.
Go Picnic Ready to Eat Meals: Go Picnic is an interesting concept in on-the-go GF eating. The company created mini boxed meals that include a variety of dried meats, fruits, seeds and more. I choose the one with black beans because I’m not much for eating processed meats; I was pleasantly surprised at what a nice meal this turned out to be. I brought a Go Picnic meal with me to the mall last weekend because eating GF in a mall food court during the Thanksgiving shopping extravaganza just isn’t going to happen. Look for GF and GMO-free options and check out all Go Picnic varieties on Amazon.
I hope this post helps you identify a few quick meal replacement and/or snacks for when you’re on the go. Instead of eating a bar (again), try one of these fun snacks to help you get through the day when you can’t cook and/or eating (safely) at a restaurant just isn’t an option. Enjoy!
