Today I am 8 years gluten free so I wanted to share 8 favorite gluten free foods.

Last year on my 7 year anniversary, I shared 7 things learned from 7 years gluten free. In it, I stated,

Gluten free is really only over-the-top expensive if you buy products labeled “gluten free.” If you stick to the basics, it’s no more expensive than any other way of living. In fact, you can do gluten free on a budget.

I still maintain this, but I also know that making your own things 24/7 is not realistic. It’s the reason I came out with my Travel Guide a couple years back.

Because people are always wondering about quick and simple snacks and things they can buy from the store, I decided to keep that the focus for this year’s anniversary celebration post.

In no particular order and with no one sponsoring this post, here are my (at least current) 8 favorite gluten free foods.

8 Favorite Gluten Free Foods #glutenfree #snacks #healthyliving

  1. Skinny Sticks, Sweet Onion flavor. They recently changed their packaging, but it’s still the same delicious product. Our favorite is the ‘Sweet Onion’ flavor. They taste like Funyuns, only their ingredient list is in line with those who can’t do gluten. Once I start eating them, I can never stop; Ryan and the kids are the same. While I don’t think they have the best ingredient list ever, they are Certified Gluten Free.
    1. Buy your own bag: Amazon or at your local store (around here they are at Hy Vee, but obviously not the one in Waseca because this one doesn’t get much of anything). 8 Favorite Gluten Free Foods Sweet Onion Skinny Sticks #glutenfree #snacks #healthyliving
  2. Made in Nature Italian Espresso Coconut Chips. Coffee and coconut; two of my favorite things, placed perfectly together. Are you supposed to give children these? I don’t even know, but I do. And they love them. (Maybe that’s why the kids are so insane.) I’m constantly eating handfuls of this stuff, and I love eating it after it’s been in the freezer awhile. Something about that extra crunch. The ingredient list rocks, too: Organic Dried Coconut Strips, Organic Maple Syrup, Organic Vanilla Extract, Organic Espresso, Sea Salt.
    1. Buy your own bag: Amazon, the Made in Nature website (you get free shipping if you spend $25 and every single thing from Made in Nature is delicious), or at your local store (they are everywhere now).
  3. Paleo Bar. I’ve been a fan since the first bite of the Sunflower Butter bar, and I featured them as part of my Top 5 Paleo Bars post. I continue to buy these bars by the box on Amazon, but lately I’ve been trying other ones, too. They carry some of them at Hy Vee in Owatonna and Mankato, so I’ll grab different flavors here and there. I really love the Mint Chocolate one, but I don’t grab it too often because of the Stevia they put in it. Regardless, they are all gluten free (and free from many other things as well).
    1. Buy your own bar: Amazon (linked above), the Julian Bakery website, or at your local store.
  4. Simple Mills Almond Flour Crackers. I just love these crackers, even the plain ones. The kids like having them for bedtime snack at night, too, sometimes with peanut butter. I love just eating them as-is. They have just the perfect amount of salt.

  5. Nikki’s Coconut Butter Dark Chocolate Fudge. I could live on chocolate. I love it so much, and every single time I’m craving it, this flavor hits the spot. The only ingredients it contains are: Organic Unsweetened Coconut, Organic Cocoa Liquor, Organic Coconut Sugar, Organic Vanilla Extract, Himalayan Sea Salt.
    1. Buy your own jar: Amazon, or via Nikki’s website (shipping is only $4.99 or free if you buy 3 jars – and all flavors are incredible). My Favorites Issue 10 Nikki's Coconut Butter Dark Chocolate Fudge #glutenfree #coconutbutter #paleo
  6. EPIC Provisions Pink Himalayan Sea Salt Pork Rinds. Beware: it’s easy to eat an entire bag in one sitting. These are ultra-addictive. I recently bought the 4-pack on Amazon, and they were gone in a week. Our whole family loves them, and I love giving them to the kids. There are barely any ingredients in them: Baked Pork Skins, Pork Fat, Pink Himalayan Sea Salt, Sea Salt. So dang good.

  7. NOW Foods Crunchy Clusters Almond. I had these while I was visiting NOW Foods in Chicago, and fell in love with them. They are bite sized snacks, and perfect for on-the-go munching. If you like the salty/sweet combination, they are a mild version of that. 
    1. Buy your own bag: Amazon, or at your local store.
  8. Little Northern Bakehouse Seeds and Grains Bread. You didn’t think I would forget a gluten-free bread recommendation, did you? No, I don’t eat a ton of bread, but I always have a loaf or two on hand in the freezer for when someone isn’t feeling well. Last week, at the end of the Neomycin, I had a lot of nausea, so I found myself eating a few slices. And I just love this brand. They say it has a crunchy texture, but I don’t agree with that at all. I think it’s fairly chewy, and I love how carb-y it tastes.

Going Gluten Free

If the only thing you had to remain was gluten free, I believe the world is totally on your side, and you can find anything and everything you want at any moment to fill any craving. 

Eight years ago today I believed that if I just went gluten free, all the problems would disappear, but also, eight years ago today I never knew I was living with SIBO (my guess is that I had already been living with it for several years by then).

Today I know that, while the gluten-free lifestyle is part of how I live each and every single day, it’s just not enough – for me. Also, it’s probably not enough for you. Gut healing involves so much more than diet only.

  1. I’m gluten intolerant. I want to go gluten free again but the cost is so rediculous I can’t afford it so I want to find gluten free products without the price tag. I’ve seen lists of different things gluten is called and I wonder how do you remember all that so you don’t accidentally buy something with gluten in it?

    1. Hi Jessica – Thanks for stopping by; great questions. So first of all, I rarely buy products that are labeled “gluten free” for reasons you mention. For starters, you might enjoy this post -> The way I do it is that I simply tend to buy things with 6 or less ingredients and of those ingredients, I always know what they are so I don’t have to worry. Also, I’m 8+ years gluten free, so it’s just become second nature for me. It will for you, too. Hang in there. Xox
