10 Dietitian Approved Gluten Free Snacks

Contributor: Eloise Turner – Accredited Practising Dietitian, Fodbods.

The search for healthy and satisfying gluten free snacks can be an uphill battle at times. It’s easy to run out of ideas and reach for the same boring options again and again! Luckily our friends at Fodbods know a thing or two about snacking! Their Accredited Practicing Dietitians have put together a list of 10 of the best gluten free snack options for you to work your way through!

Fruit

Fruit is highly nutritious, delicious, and convenient, not to mention naturally gluten-free! Each type brings its own unique set of nutrients so pick the fruit you enjoy the most and include a variety to reap maximum benefit!

Popcorn

Popcorn is a gluten free whole grain that is high in fibre (which not only promotes digestive health but reduces the risk of many diseases and keeps us feeling fuller for longer). You can make your own popcorn at home however most store-bought versions are gluten free (we like this Cobs Popcorn).

 

Boiled Eggs

Eggs are often referred to as “nature’s multivitamin”. They are low in calories, loaded with nutrients, protein and healthy fats and can be eaten in many ways. Boiled eggs, in particular, make a great snack as they don’t require much time or effort to prepare.

Cheese and Rice Crackers

Cheese is high in protein and calcium and when paired with gluten free whole grain crackers, makes a perfect low GI snack (which is great for stable energy/glucose levels).

Hummus and Veggie Sticks

Hummus is a creamy dip made with chickpeas (which are naturally gluten free). It’s high in fibre and micronutrients, especially when paired with some veggie sticks (like carrot, cucumber, celery or capsicum). You can make your own hummus at home however many store-bought versions are gluten free (we like SSS Foods Natural Hommus Dip).

Trail Mix

Trail mix is a high-fibre snack that combines nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Whilst you can purchase pre-made mixes from grocery stores, it’s also super easy to make at home. By doing this, you can guarantee its gluten free plus you can experiment with any ingredients to suit your taste and preferences. Check out our DIY trail mix recipe here. 

Greek Yoghurt

Greek yoghurt is rich in protein, calcium and probiotics (which are great for our gut health). Bonus points if you top it with some nuts and/or fruit (like berries) for a fibre and micronutrient boost.

Seaweed Snacks

Seaweed is naturally gluten free, low in calories and loaded with vitamins, minerals, and healthy fats (which is great for our heart health). It is especially beneficial for vegans, as it provides vitamin B-12 and iodine, which are quite rare in non-animal sources (we like Ceres Organics Roasted Seaweed).

Brown Rice Cakes

Brown rice is a gluten free whole grain that when puffed and pressed together, forms a low-calorie alternative to bread or crackers. We love them because they are super convenient and versatile. Here are some of our favourite toppings:

  • Tuna and tomato;
  • Peanut butter and banana;
  • Hummus and avocado; and
  • Avocado and an egg.

Fodbods

These yummy snacks are not only laboratory-tested gluten free but are certified FODMAP-friendly (which means they’re super easy to digest and won’t cause any tummy aches or bloating). They’re also 100% natural and vegan-friendly so everyone can enjoy!

We always recommend checking food labels prior to consumption but if you’re unsure or are worried about cross-contamination, remember to protect yourself with GluteGuard!
