Healthy Gluten Free Snacks

12 Dec

I have been gluten-free for the last year. I struggled with cutting it out of my diet for quite a while as I missed tucking into delicious donuts and toast as snacks.

I am a big snacker. I constantly what to be nibbling on something but going gluten-free made this hard. I found I was always hungry as I had no idea what snacks I could eat and I lost lots of weight, which I didn’t what to do. It has taken me a while but I now have discovered¬†some great snacks to eat throughout that day that are delicious and keep me satisfied.

Healthy Chocolate and Almond Smoothie

This is probably my favourite snack. It may be chocolate and taste like it’s bad for you but actually it’s very healthy. To make smoothies I use a NutriBullet – They are amazing! You can use any blender to mix these ingredients together.

Ingredients

1/2 banana

1 tsp almond butter

1 tsp 100% coco power

1 cup almond milk

Splash of vanilla essence

(optional: 1 scoop of protein powder)

Houmous and Chicken Rice Cracker

Very quick and simple snack that can be pre-made for later in the day. Just put 2 together like a sandwich to store and separate later.

Ingredients

Houmous

Chicken slices or scraps

Rice cracker

Chicken and houmous rice cakes

Avocado, Balsamic and tomato

This dish can be shaped however you prefer. Mozzarella can be added to it or even an egg for extra protein. Chop up an avocado and some tomatoes and toss them in a bowl with a splash of balsamic vinegar on top. Avocados are very filling and a great superfood.

Ingredients

Avocado

Tomatoes

Balsamic Vinegar

(Optional: mozzarella, egg)

Nuts and Chocolate/Yogurt Covered Raisins

Nuts are a great snack and help stop the hunger. My problem with them is that I do get bored eating nuts all the time. So I now add into the mix chocolate covered raisins (or yogurt covered raisins) to add something a little bit more exciting for my taste buds.

I hope this helper a little bit. They are all simple snacks but very tasty and easy to grab on the go.
