One common misconception about a gluten-free diet is that gluten-free equals healthy. This is not necessarily the case with certain gluten-free snacks, such as potato chips, french fries, and sugary or high-fat, gluten-free baked goods. When following a gluten-free diet, it’s still important to eat appropriate portion sizes, prepare balanced meals and snacks, and include whole grains. See below for a list of healthy gluten-free snacks that are easy to make and take with you on-the-go.
