If you have/want to eat gluten and dairy free you’ll know how hard it is to buy a quick snack on the go. While your contemporaries can just pop into the local newsagent, unless there’s a health food shop or a large supermarket, pretty much all you can buy is fruit or a pack of Kettle Chips (not so healthy).
Stocking up on snacks is very important and I always have a healthy supply in my snack cupboard. Yes, I have a snack cupboard.
My latest find is Nogii bars; an all natural, all gluten free (not all are dairy free) bars which have recently launched in the UK.
I tried the Nogii Paleo bars in ‘Nuts about Nuts’ and ‘Nuts about Berries’ as they are the only two which are gluten and dairy free. Nuts About Berries bar is contains cranberries and strawberries topped with a layer of almonds, cashews, and sunflower oil. Nuts is packed full of almonds, dates, cashews, honey, sunflower seeds, pistachios, safflower oil and was definitely my favourite.
The Paleo diet is based on the principle that we should adopt the eating habits of our ancestors (hunter/gatherers) in order to lose weight and lead a healthier lifestyle; it’s effective but can be hard to follow. Nogii’s Paleo bars are a concentrated source of “paleoriffic” foods that can be thrown in your bag for a treat on the go.
Like most free-from foods, you don’t want to eat loads and loads as they don’t contain sugar so aren’t addictive but they do nicely fill that 11 am and/or 3 pm snack gap without setting off your intolerances or increasing your waistline thanks to their 120 calories. More importantly, they taste great!
