Gluten Free Snacks by Leanne Ely of Saving Dinner


Hey, everyone, Leanne Ely from SavingDinner.com
and one of the questions that I get asked all the time is, “Hey, Leanne, can you help
me out with some gluten-free snacks?” and you know, I love a gluten-free snack just
like anyone else and my favorite go-to’s of course are apples and oranges or tangerines
because you can throw it in your purse but also, I like nuts, a handful of nuts. When
I say a handful, I’m talking ten. The problem with nuts is that they’re full of fat which
is not a problem but too much fat is too much fat, people, right? And they have lots of
fiber and they have protein so they really are the quintessential great snack but you
need to limit them because overeating is overeating and it doesn’t ever work out well. So that’s
one of my favorite things. Another favorite thing, and you can find this
by the way over on the Leanne Recommends page. So if you go to SavingDinner.com/leanne-recommends.
I think that’s it anyway. You can find out about my favorite coffee and that is Bulletproof
Coffee. Bulletproof Coffee is from my friend Dave Asprey, also known as the Bulletproof
executive and he has MCT oil. This is high-octane, Brain Octane Oil, okay? And what this is is
pharmaceutical grade coconut oil plus Kerrygold unsalted butter. So you take a cup of coffee,
one tablespoon of the upgraded Brain Octane Oil and a tablespoon of Kerrygold Butter,
you blend it in your blender and you drink it in this like a fabulous cappuccino, seriously,
and the only dairy is just a little bit from this butter and let me tell you something,
this puts your brain on fire. So, if you really have to work hard, you’ve got a lot of things
going on, this is the best coffee drink that you can get and sometimes, this is all I’ll
have for breakfast. I’ll have a couple cups of this and I’ll just be going like crazy.
That fat is amazing. The other thing that I like is celery almond
butter. I think it’s just fantastic and I do that one all the time. I love hard-boiled
eggs. I mean, again, if you stick it in a Ziploc bag and throw it in your purse, you
can take it with you. Avocados are fabulous. One of the things that I like to do with an
avocado is I’ll cut it in half, I’ll put a little salt and pepper on it and a little
bit of salsa right in the middle, and I’ll just spoon it out and eat it that way, very
satisfying, very delicious. You can also stick a part of an avocado into your smoothie to
make it extra creamy and you won’t taste the avocado, so you don’t have to worry about
that. And if you’re wondering, “What on earth is this?” This is chia seed pudding. Now chia
seeds are fantastic. They are full of fiber and particularly pectin which is awesome because
pectin holds toxins and pushes them out so, you know what I’m saying, it’s the ultimate
cleaner upper and then, it also is full of omega-3 fatty acids so that’s brain power
right there. So if you mix this up with a little coconut oil, almond milk, it’s a quarter
of a cup of, yeah, that’s right, a quarter of a cup of chia seeds versus a cup of almond
milk or coconut milk and you shake it up and you let it sit and it gels, that was my dryer
by the way, and it gels and it’s a pudding. So you put some fresh raspberries on it, blueberries,
whatever you want, maybe even some slivered almonds and it’s fantastic and I will have
that for breakfast and I eat about a cup of this for breakfast and I’m telling you, honey,
it keeps you regular. That’s what I’m saying. Also, speaking of keeping you regular, I am
crazy about fermented foods, sauerkraut, pickles, good pickles, Bubbies is an awesome brand,
and then this is really pretty crazy. This is kimchi and kimchi is a Korean fermented
cabbage food and this one has, this one’s the spicy wakame ginger and it’s a little
spicy. It’s a little bit hot but you just throw it on your plate and fermented foods
help to build the good guys inside of your gut and that’s what helps to get rid of the
bloat and keep you, again, keep you regular. I’m all about keeping you regular.
Anyway, so those are just a few of my favorite things that I like for snacks and I hope you
give them a try and see what you think. Let me know.
