30 Gluten-Free Snacks and Treats

With the onslaught of people getting diagnosed with Celiac disease and gluten sensitivities, there is an increasing need for more gluten-free food. Eating gluten-free can be quite easy if you are in control of the kitchen, and if you just equip yourself with a few items like a high powered blender, food processor, nuts and nut butters, dates, and maybe even beans. Eating at potlucks and restaurants can be a challenge, although more restaurants are picking up on the need for gluten-free choices.

Jonathan and I are going to be eliminating gluten for a week or two, in the next few weeks. Jonathan was inspired by the lecture Wheat Belly (watch it free here) to eliminate wheat, and I want to see if it is contributing to any digestive issues in me. So I thought this would be a great time to compile a gluten-free snacks and treats list.

 30 gluten-free snacks and treats

So much of the Standard American Diet centers on white flour products which have been stripped of nutrients and spike the blood sugar. Our family is not gluten-free but we see the need to diversify and not rely on white flour or even whole wheat flour all of the time. So I don’t buy bread. I think I’ve bought one loaf in five year. If we eat bread at home, it’s sourdough bread I’ve made so it’s soaked and easier to digest. We do buy multi-grain or whole wheat flour tortillas, though. They are just so convenient! I do want to look for a gluten-free alternative, though, because I do think I need to try to go gluten-free for a week or a month. I want to find something that wraps better than a corn tortilla. We’ll see.

So I’ve complied a list of 30 gluten-free snacks. Additionally many of these recipes are egg-free, dairy-free, and vegan.

    Thanks for this post! I plan to use these recipes! I just went wheat free this month as an experiment. My digestive issues have went way down and I feel better than I have in months. I plan to continue after my initial trial month is over, although I am not going to be so strict as I was this month. I want to be able to eat freely if we are invited to someones home for dinner or on special occasions. I will continue to choose gluten free options when we go out to dinner or pot lucks though, when possible. I have not been diagnosed with anything. I always like to try to find the issue and solve it myself before heading to the doctor! :-) Nine times out of ten I am able to figure out the problem and correct it through diet, exercise or herbal supplements/essential oils, thus saving me a lot of money on doctor bills. Have a nice weekend!

    Sonja, there is an article that you may be interested in which addresses some of the concerns brought up in Wheat Belly. It is written by a Christian who has done a LOT of research on the subject. Here is the link: http://info.breadbeckers.com/wheat-belly-fact-or-fiction/ Another outstanding article she has written on the subject of soaking grains is: http://info.breadbeckers.com/phytic-acid/ I feel that as Christians, we have to be careful to filter the info. we are getting from the world around us – especially on what constitutes a “healthy diet”, and constantly take what we hear back to the Word before buying into the latest fad. Some of these diet trends are just that – fads, and not Biblical at all.

      Hi Joy! I totally agree with you about filtering info! I think it’s important to get back to whole foods, full fat dairy, eating some meat, eating some grains, and eating fruits, nuts, seeds, and LOTS of veggies. I do think we need to be careful about eating a diet of processed foods. If your body has a hard time processing these things, then they should be limited. I do better when I don’t have a diet full of dairy like I used to, so I have limited it. I think the processed foods and GMOs have helped to increase the amount of people who are gluten intolerant and celiacs, but I am not a medical professional. Thank you for sharing the links, and I look forward to reading them!
