Wheat free snacks

I am a Girls on the Run coach this Spring and one of my girls is Gluten Free. As a coach I am responsible for bringing a healthy snack for the girls each practice (Monday and Wednesday nights until the end of May).

I brought organic fruit strips last Wednesday. But I want to have as many different snacks as possible. I don't want to single this girl out, so I want to always bring Gluten Free snacks. I have some ideas. But if anyone can help me think of some, I would be very thankful. I am sure that VeggieGirl will be especially helpful :)

Here is an explanation about Girls on the Run:

Girls on the Run® is a non-profit prevention program that encourages preteen girls to develop self-respect and healthy lifestyles through running. Our curricula address all aspects of girls' development - their physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual well-being.

I have a yummy meal planned this weekend, so hopefully it is a success and it turns into a great blog post.

Also last night for dinner I had a creation that was inspired by the Chocolate Covered Vegan - Katie. I will post pictures and talk about that tonight!!

I'm sure other people will be more helpful, but I'd say that if you have a whoole foods near you, check out the gluten-free section. I know the one at my whole foods is HUGE!

Excited to see what you made :)

That's really cool that you're a coach in that program.

I am going to be a coach too. We have our first meeting in a couple weeks!

You could bring fruit and peanut butter.

They have some great gluten free healthy "chips", bars, and crackers. Whole Foods and trader joes will be a great resource for you.

Blog lurker here - in a non-creep way though. heheh I just wanted to say, oh WOW your veggie shephards pie looks REALLy good. I might be adventurous one day and make it for my boyfriend and try to convert him into a veggie lover!!! (He's a TOTAL carnivore) :)

You've got a great blog here!! I'm totally enjoying your posts!!

Sounds like a great program. Some gluten free ideas are:
* fresh fruit
* nut thins (crackers) and string cheese
* celery, peanut butter, raisins
* trail mix
* popcorn
* glutino pretzels (although a little pricey)
* buy pamela's baking mix and make muffins (they freeze really easily so you could make a big batch and thaw as needed)

I hope this helps! It is just important when buying products that you always check the ingredients list. Manufacturer's loooove to through in a little gluten where it is least expected (such as twizzlers, I just discovered)
