When you are eating gluten-free, finding nutritious snacks can be difficult. There are a lot of white rice flour crackers, potato flour chips, and many other high carbohydrate and low protein products. Sure, you can always grab a handful of nuts, but sometimes you want something that is good for you and adds variety. Here are some to consider.
Chunky Peanut Butter high protein bar
Have you ever been running around trying to fit it all in (work, family, friends, housework, appointments) and find yourself stuck with no gluten-free options in sight that are high in protein (20 grams!), low in sugar, taste good, are a bargain AND inside your purse or briefcase? Think Thin is the brand of high protein nutrition bars by Think Products. Just reading about their Chucnky Peanut Butter bar is enough to make you want one. Here's the information for you: http://thinkproducts.com/products/chunky-peanut-butter-high-protein-bar/. And, they are easily available in Target Stores or you can buy them online. Enjoy them with a drink for a filling, delicious snack or quick meal on the run.
Granola - loaded fruit and nut
Trader Joe's take gluten-free granola and turns it into more than just a morning cereal. Throw some in your favorite yogurt for an amped-up breakfast. Try it on top of ice cream for a treat that is good for you, or just eat it by the handful. Keep the zip top bag in your car when you are on the road or in a carry-on piece of luggage when traveling. Protein and fiber and outstanding taste anywhere, anytime. So good, it even made Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer - http://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article.asp?article_id=1090
Say cheese! Crackers that make you smile
Finding a snack cracker that is delicious and nutritious is not easy. And, if you once loved small fish-shaped cheese crackers as a kid, you know that it is hard to replicate the lip-smacking taste and crunch in a gluten-free product... but Van's Foods has done it. Say Cheese! snack crackers are available in a standard sixed box and a value pack with five mini-packets (which might help you from overindulging in them). The protein and fiber is as good as the taste. You will love having these any time - and so will others around you, too. See: http://www.vansfoods.com/our-products-crackers#
Double dark chocolate and good for you
Low in sugar and high in protein (12 grams), with a crispy and rich dark chocolate inside and out, when you need chocolate, this is it. Zone Perfect Double Dark Chocolate bars are quick snacks that everyone will and the protein will keep you going - while making you feel very indulgent from the chocolate kick. For all the nutritional information see: http://zoneperfect.com/products/zoneperfect/double-dark-chocolate. They have more flavors, too.
(Just a little side note: the facilities where Zone Perfect double dark chocolate nutrition bars are made are not on dedicated facilities, so cross-contamination is possible if you need to be aware of this.)
