A Savoury Treat
I must be the only person craving something a bit savoury at the moment at a time when we are all surrounded by chocolate in egg form. I have got an Easter egg (thanks mum) but I just fancied something else to nibble on.
My niece introduced me to the Hummous Chips which are really tasty. She is following a vegan diet and I'm gluten free so it's nice to share diet tips, although some food choices are different we come together on some things. These chip snacks are gluten free, suitable for vegans and have no added sugar. They also come in different flavours too. Available in most supermarkets and reasonably priced at £1.79 for a 135g bag I think I may be purchasing some very soon. If you are following Slimming World, they are 5.5 syns per 25g.
My other choice of snack is the Pringles Tortilla Chips which I love because I miss eating the original Pringles. They contain wheat so these corn snacks are a nice alternative. You don't get the vast amount of flavour choices but there are a few nice ones to choose from. Be careful though and make sure you read the packaging as I bought some Tortilla Pringles today and I bought the Sour Cream Fiesta variety and they contain wheat so I can't have them. Silly me!!
The best way to check foods to see if they are gluten free or wheat free is to use the Coeliac UK Food Checker App. You can search all foods and even scan barcodes too. this will give you accurate information and put your mind at rest. I have it handy most of the time but obviously not today.
It is tricky sometimes especially if you are still getting used to being on a gluten free diet. You do get used to it though, we all make mistakes sometimes but I personally feel I am continually learning. Again if you are a Slimming World person you would pay 6 syns for 25g of these. Not bad if you have a few syns to spare, we do need a treat sometimes. I'm not counting the Galaxy Chocolate Egg - I just daren't!!
Thanks for popping by today.......please join me tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday especially as it is World Autism Awareness Week, for now though take care.
