Strangely enough, snacking is a healthy habit. It’s usual to feel hungry during the afternoon, so if we don’t want overeating at dinner, the best way is eating a healthy snack. So we don’t have any excuse, snacking is a great idea, and we can also find afternoon gluten free snacks.
At first sight, we think that prepare gluten free afternoon snacks is a bit complicated. We often think in sandwiches or pastries, but obviously this is impossible, because we have forbidden any food made with wheat flour.
Luckily, everything changes, and now we are more aware of the benefits of a healthy diet and we know what food is healthy and which is not.
To prepare gluten free afternoon snacks, first of all, we have to take into account forbidden foods. Besides breads, pastries and cookies, we can’t eat sausages, ice-creams, cereals or chocolates which are not labeled as gluten-free. Foods that we can eat are dairies, fruits and vegetables, gluten free cereals, gluten free ice-creams and chocolates and raw nuts.
And of course, with these foods we can make a lot of gluten free afternoon snacks. Remember that this meal has to be healthy and light.
