When you go glutenfree snacking becomes an issue. I remember when I used to eat gluten, I could eat just about anything from anywhere but now I have to make sure I carry either my own snacks or buy from a reliable place. But if you live in a country like India, it is not very easy to get glutenfree snacks that easily.

I am listing down my GO TO gluten-free snacks that I feel are wonderful and healthy too. You let me know what do you like snacking on?

1. Dates:  dates are an amazing good source of energy, fiber, sugar, and various vitamins and minerals. They contain calcium, iron, phosphorus, sodium, potassium, magnesium and zinc. Apart from the above-mentioned nutrients, they also contain vitamins such as thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, vitamin B6, folate, vitamin A and vitamin K. You can also use dates at desserts and as a food sweetener.

2. Cucumber toast with pepper: Toast bread with some olive oil in a pan. Then put sliced cucumber pieces on it, sprinkle salt and pepper. YUM! (My most favorite snack)

3. Makhana or Fox nuts: Makhana has made a comeback and how! This is the new popcorn and people are loving it. makhana is loaded with protein, potassium, phosphorus, carbohydrates, fiber, magnesium, iron and zinc. Plus it is easy to prepare, store and carry in a box. If you are interested in making curry-flavored makhana snack then check out the recipe.

4. Flourless cookies: Yes, no headache of which flour to use, these cookies do not need any flours.

5. Flavored almonds: We all know almonds are healthy, but eating just plain almonds can get boring sometimes. So I recommend we add a bit of fun with some flavors and textures.  Get this very fun sweet Almonds recipe. As some of you may know, Celiac or gluten intolerance can cause loss of memory or brain fog, so it actually makes sense in adding almonds to your snacks as almonds are known to improve memory. They are also a good source of protein, magnesium, calcium etc.

6. Popcorn: Did you know popcorn has more antioxidants than a lot of fruits and vegetables? Popcorn has a lot of polyphenols, compounds found in plants that act as antioxidants and reduce inflammation. Polyphenols are diluted in fruits and vegetables, so it makes sense to include popcorn into your regular snacks.

7. Bananas: We all know its dietary benefits, but for someone who has gluten issues and gets constipated often, bananas can really help in such situations. Bananas contain significant amounts of dietary fiber and therefore help in smooth bowel movements. The roughage soothes the process and relieves a person from constipation.

8. Potato and rosemary roast: Yes, the tastiest glutenfree snack you would make is this dish. Boil some potatoes, smash them and drizzle olive oil, salt, rosemary, and pepper. Bake in the oven till it turns golden brown. I eat potatoes often as it gives me energy and also boosts immunity. What you didn’t know it was a great immunity booster?

9. Puffed rice bhelpuri: who doesn’t like bhelpuri? This is my most favorite Indian street snack, I like it because it is packed with fresh ingredients, it is light on the stomach and is so easy to make at home. Get the recipe here.

10. Eggs: We all know eggs are great for health. Every time you get hungry if your pantry has nothing the boil 2 eggs and eat them. They boost brain health. Eggs are chock full of choline, an essential nutrient crucial for healthy memory, mood, and muscle control.

I hope my little list helped you, I am always trying to get you cheap and healthy food options. I hope you get some ideas and incorporate them into your daily food list.
