Gluten-Free On-the-Go

We live in a world where we are on-the-go 24/7. This is hard for eating healthy for the average person, much less the gluten-free (mis) fortunate!

A good friend of mine recently messaged me, “I feel like I eat ALL DAY LONG! So many snacks and kid food around and I have no willpower! This year I have been trying to eat better and bring my own food. Any recommendations on good low-fat and high energy snacks to have on hand?”

As I travel a lot, and find myself rarely home, I have had to teach myself healthy and gluten-free on-the-go. Because food equals fuel and fuel sustains this lifestyle, now more than ever is the topic of food on-the-go a hot one – not only for me, but for many of you as well!

I promised my friend a post on this, so here you are, some fuel to get your engine started. (Make note: My friend is not gluten free, but I know these options will suffice!)

10 ideas for Gluten-Free On-the-Go:

  1. Banana + Raw, almond butter
  2. The Laughing Cow Light Queso Fresco & Chipotle + Trader Joe’s Edamame Gluten-Free Crackers/Popchips (Original)
  3. Raw nuts (I like almonds, the green nut or macadamias. I also love walnuts, but I’m not sure they like me.) + California Raisins
  4. Coach’s Oats (yes I pack them with me – they even have single-serving packets) + Chobani Greek Yogurt and/or a Banana (Tip: If you are staying somewhere with no microwave, you can even just use hot water and soak the oats for awhile!)
  5. Any of The Laughing Cow Wedges + an Apple or Pear
  6. Chobani Greek Yogurt + Kay’s Natural Cereal (French Vanilla)
  7. Fully-cooked Organic Grilled Chicken + vegetables (pre-make and carry along)
  8. Kind Bars
  9. The Laughing Cow Mini Babybel Light (I love eating these as a stand alone!)
  10. Gluten-Free Granola Vanilla (Udi’s Gluten Free) + Chobani Greek Yogurt

Remember, at the end of the day, I believe there are 2 keys to success:

  1. Protein + a little fat + a little of the “good” carbs to keep you fuller for longer.
  2. Eat many small meals a day vs. anything larger. (Note: I eat 5-7, depending on the day)

Good luck! What other questions do you have?!
