Thursday Top Three- Snacks to feed your Gluten Free Friends

I’ve been eating gluten free for over 10 years (not by choice). I know how annoying it is to have me over, even for wine/appys because gluten is hidden in many, many foods.┬áBut feeding me, and your other gluten free friends, is actually pretty easy. Here are my favourite simple GF appetizers that you can find in any grocery store.*

Gluten Free Crackers and Cheese

There are many GF crackers- rice crackers, Mary’s crackers and Breton GF are my favourite. All cheese is safe (except Blue cheese- something about the mould being grown on bread).

Veggies and Hummus

All veggies are GF- so a big ole plate of carrots, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, etc to dip in hummus (which is chickpea based) is perfect!

Nachos and Salsa

Nacho chips are made from corn- which is gluten free. I’d still check for a GF label to be sure there are no traces (for those bothered by trace amounts). Same with Salsa.

*If you’re not sure if something has gluten in it, ask your friend- I am personally never offended if someone checks in with me and would much rather that than get sick later.
