Gluten free: Snacks

One of the things worrying me about going gluten free was this: what would happen if i was suddenly hungry and I hadn't prepared any snacks? would I look in the cupboard and find nothing to eat? [note: because I am still nursing Flissy I am hungry ALL the time]

So I browsed through the list of websites in my gluten-free book to check out what was on offer.

It turns out that I can get a lot of food through Amazon's (wonderful) subscribe and save program. Not just snacks but flours and grains too.

So last week a rather large box arrived with the following items:
  • multigrain crackers
  • puffed rice
  • agave nectar
  • lemon wafers
  • pretzel twists
  • breakfast bars, apple
  • millet rice cereal
Of course there were many items of each. Good thing I've cleared up the pantry!

We also have lots of fun stuff from Trader Joes!

Sounds like we are opposites...ie we are American's living in Australia an you are Australians living in America. Well let me tell you about a few wonderful GF Aussie products you can buy on Amazon. Freedom Food's Tropicos are hands down the best O shaped gluten free breakfast cereal we have found in either country. Also we think the the Orgran (Australian) flours make better cakes than Bob's Red Mill but Bob's Red Mill makes better pancakes. So you may have different uses for the different flours as you use them. Anyway both of those can be purchased at www.amazon.com. We were checking out in case we move back to the States anytime soon. The last time we visited we had the Orgran flour delivered to my in-laws so it was there when we arrived. Oh yeah another great Aussie product that is GF is the Corn Thins....much better than the Rice Cakes in the US.

You can read some of our GF recipes and such at http://kellerville.com

May God bless you on this new food journey.
