Gluten Free Snacks
March 18, 2019 14 Comments
Gluten free snacks aren’t that easy to find. There are just too many cookies and bars with all sorts of ingredients in the snack aisle.
I say - forget the snack aisle! Going gluten free means you have to be more creative but you can do it.
Many people have started following a gluten-free diet because they find that they can't tolerate gluten or are allergic to it.
In case you didn't know, gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, kamut, and spelt. Gluten is also a food additive and can be hidden under the names "maltodextrine" and "dextrine".
Why are so many people choosing gluten free? I think that people feel better when they don't eat the many processed foods that use gluten.
Think about it. Start your day without toast or a donut, then don't eat a sandwich for lunch, and then skip the pizza for dinner. So, what did you eat?
You probably made much better choices by going gluten free. Maybe you ate a salad at lunch, drank a berry smoothie (with no added sugar) for breakfast, and made a delicious light dinner of fish, brown rice, and roasted asparagus? I can hope!
