The Top 10 Gluten-Free Snacks

Not eating gluten is challenging, but don't worry! There are healthy and wonderful alternatives that are naturally gluten-free. You can eat just about anything from these gluten-free food groups:

  • Vegetables
  • Fruits
  • Dairy
  • Beans, legumes, and nuts,
  • Fish and seafood
  • Meats and poultry

Many gluten-free alternatives are available in grocery stores, and this makes eating gluten-free much easier to handle. Eat gluten-free snacks as a part of your healthy diet, but do base your diet on natural fruits, vegetables, and meats.

It is essential to read the labels on products labeled gluten-free. Wheat free does not mean gluten-free so be careful even if products are labeled gluten-free.

Beverages are generally gluten-free. These include alcoholic beverages like wines and hard liquors. Distilled liquors and hard ciders are also gluten-free. Do stay away from beers, lagers, ales, malt beverages, and malt vinegars. Gluten-containing grains are ingredients in beers, lagers, ales, and malt beverages. There are brands of gluten-free beers available if you are desperate.

It sounds confusing, but you need to read the labels of medicines, supplements, and vitamins before you take them. Often the capsules are made from wheat-based ingredients. Be safe and read the labels before purchasing and using medications and supplements.
