Gluten Freedom: April 2010

We all know that quick - on the go choices are hard to come by when following a gluten free diet. Whether you’re looking for new snack ideas for work, school or an afternoon trip to the beach here’s some of our favorite ready to go options available at Mana Foods.

Beat the Heat and Cool Down
Luna and Larry’s Coconut Bliss Bars – These frozen vegan coconut milk bars are available in a 4 pack or individually. Choose from decadent dark chocolate or naked coconut.
Julie’s Gluten Free Ice Cream Sandwiches – Not only are they delicious, but you’ll love the cool tube packaging!
So Delicious All Fruit Bars – A great refreshing treat to uplift your afternoon.

Need a Little Crunch?
Mary’s Gone Crackers Sticks and Twigs – These crunchy sticks are guilt free! Each serving offers 4 grams of fiber as well as 4 grams of protein. Zest it up with curry or tomato chipotle or keep it simple with my personal favorite… sea salt.
Lundberg Rice Chips – You’re bound to find a favorite with flavors ranging from Sante Fe Barbeque to Wasabi.
Bhuja Cracker Mixes – Spice it up with these Indian flared cracker mixes
Protein Power!
Wild Ride Beef Jerky – Choose from 3 gluten free flavors: Buckin’ Barbeque, Galloping Pepper or Jumpin’ Hot & Spicy.
Living Harvest Hemp Protein Powder – A complete vegetarian protein as well as an excellent source of fiber and essential fats. Although best enjoyed blended with a fruit smoothie, try adding to your favorite juice or milk/milk alternative and shake!
Applegate Farms Lunchmeat – All varieties are gluten free! Enjoy rolled up on its own or with your favorite gluten free crackers

We’ve All Got A Little Sweetness
Jennie’s Coconut Macaroons – These simple honey sweetened treats are irresistible! Available in coconut, chocolate or almond flavor.
Schar Cocoa Wafers – A perfect accompaniment to your afternoon coffee or tea. Also try their chocolate dipped cookies.
Environkidz Crispy Rice Bars – Reminiscent of rice krispy treats…..these individually wrapped bars are available with many twists.

Deli Deliciousness!
For those less sensitive, enjoy Mana Foods “Made with no gluten ingredients” options. Please note we try our best to avoid cross contamination but deli items are not prepared in a dedicated gluten free environment. Mahalo!
Tuna salad – Topped over Blue Diamond Nut Thins. This high protein option will become a new favorite!
Salad Rolls – Filled with veggies and tofu these light but satisfying snacks are great for the beach.
Try something RAW! – Choose from a wide range of savory to sweet nutrient dense delights.
And of course….. don’t forget about your fresh fruits and vegetables.
