It seems like everyone and their mother has turned gluten in the past few years. I don’t know whether people are becoming more aware of their intolerances or if they’re genuinely just jumping on a bandwagon of the next food trend.
Whatever the reason for people choosing to go gluten free. The trend does mean that there are so many options for people who are trying to eat that diet. There are plenty of options you can go for, most of these end up being pretty healthy but there are a few that end up being gloriously indulgent.
These are some of my favourites I’ve tried. Bearing in mind, I am not purely gluten-free, but that doesn’t mean I can’t try out a few of the snacks and have an informed opinion on them.
Lance Sandwich Crackers
These are some seriously tasty, full-bodied crackers that pack a real punch with none of the gluten nastiness. They come in two flavours: cheddar cheese and peanut butter. I am, unfortunately, allergic to peanuts, so I’ve only ever tried the cheese ones, but they’re extremely tasty.
They’re so moreish and you can’t even tell they’re missing an integral part of what normally makes a cracker so great.
Kind Almond & Coconut Bar
These are great as a little pick me up during the day and I tend to have them as my elevnsies or as a mid-afternoon snack. It’s all natural with no genetic modifications. Just pure almond with coconut flakes smashed into a delicious protein bar.
They’re also a great source of fibre and it’s very sweet and filling, with none of the guilt!
Cacao Goji Superfood Power Snacks
If you can get past the fact they these little protein bites look a little like bird food then they are extremely tasty. Made with pure cacao, oats, goji berries and plenty of superfoods thrown in for good measure too.
These are amazing after the gym and are really perfect for giving you a boost when your energy is low just after a major session with the weights or on the treadmill.
Terra Sweet Potato Chips
Crisps are not gluten free! It’s horrifying if you’ve chosen the gluten free life because crisps are everything. However, there are some alternatives for you to dip your toes into. Vegetable crisps are a great alternative and you can pretend they’re healthy because they’re vegetables.
Sweet potato chips are my personal favourite as they kind of taste a little like the real thing but without any of the gluten.
Gluten Free Cookies
Gluten free alternatives of real things are often trash. But if you can find a really good alternative, then it’s the bomb. I recently found some amazing gluten free cookies once from a corner store near where I live. They were only there for one visit that I took there and for the life of me I can’t remember the brand or anywhere else to get them.
I feel like they were in a blue packet with red writing. Vague I know, but if anyone can come up with a suggestion for what they were, I would be very grateful!
