at Le Pain Quotidien, m got prosciutto, fig and pear tartine with ricotta, honey and wild arugula. usually we have a choice of bread. since we wanted to keep our hands free of allergens when we’re with k, the waiter offered us the option of gluten free vegan crackers.
the first food that k showed me lack of interest in was chickpeas – feeding them to me instead of eating it. so when i found these chips in the supermarket, it seemed like a fun way for k to retry chickpeas. i know k can eat chickpeas without an allergic reaction. there are also a few new spices to introduce k to so i picked it up.
we were out and about when i realized i forgot k’s snack! so we went to the deli and looked for something that she could eat. it has three main ingredients: popcorn, vegetable oil and sea salt. k liked it very much!
more dry snacks for k! i guess you can say once i started looking for them, there’re not that hard to find. so far i’ve only been focused on savory ones and k doesn’t seem to mind. my latest shopping endeavor led me to these quinoa sticks with chia seeds.
m & i were out with k all day and on our way home, since it was nice outside we thought we’d stop to let k see the sunset. i was going to pick up some drinks since m & i were parched on the way and since i didn’t have k’s next meal, i thought i’d pick up a snack in case she gets hungry. i found these: Continue reading “processed gluten free vegan snack: Simple Sprouted Way Better Snacks – Punkin Cranberry Corn Tortilla Chips”
from the same brand that brought k her love of waffles, is Van’s Gluten Free Multigrain Crackers. it has a crispy texture and nice flavor. like most snacks it is a little saltier than i would like for myself and even more so to give to a toddler so i lightly wipe off the top and bottom of each cracker to remove some of the salt and then it’s perfect!
the Ener-G brand pretzels are a bit crunchy so i haven’t bought them again although i did give k some from the last batch. when i was grocery shopping the other day at a local supermarket, i saw a line of gluten free products: Glutino. I’ve seen the name before but hadn’t tried it before. so when i saw they had a line of pretzels
i love pretzels and thought k may enjoy some to. i was excited to find these Ener-G brand pretzels that were not only wheat free and gluten free but also dairy, egg, nut and soy free. not only does it satisfy k’s allergy needs but also kids with more allergies than k.
when i stop by other natural food stores, i check out their snack section to see if i can find other “healthy” gluten free vegan snack options to give k at school. during one of my searches i found Craklebred.
since little one can eat rice, i look at all the dry snacks that say “rice” since wheat is not an option. these crackers are called rice crackers so it was promising. they tasted like the japanese sembei crackers my parents used to buy when i was a kid. personally, i was not a fan but little one took to them. they come in original, sesame and seaweed flavors that little one can eat. other flavors are also available. success! found another dry snack for little one’s school snack time! notes product site: KA•ME rice crackers Continue reading processed gluten free vegan snack: KA•ME rice crackers
