Gluten Free Meal and Snack Options

One thing Harbor Greens is always striving to perfect is their customer service! You will most likely be greeted at the door, the staff are friendly and helpful, the food and plant selection is top notch, many items are local and the vendors even visit the store and the selection of gluten free items is growing daily.  With more and more people unable to eat gluten the demand for high quality and yummy tasting options is becoming a very important aspect of owning a grocery store and Harbor Greens offers hundreds of items to help you on your journey to a healthier diet if gluten cannot be part of it.  Of course you can pick up a piece of meat, seafood, any vegetable, fruit and many other items but sometimes you just want a quick meal or a delicious snack.  Here are a bunch of items both locations carry to help you on your way (there are many more):

IMG_0973Amy’s brand carries a huge selection of prepared items that are easy to make at home or at the office in both a microwave or oven.  Items include but are not limited to mac and cheese, international dishes such as enchiladas and tamales, pizza, pasta, burgers and much much more.

IMG_0974Amy’s also has prepared chocolate cake and pound cake in the freezer section for those quick desserts! Just top with fresh berries and whip cream and dessert is done!

IMG_0975Mountain Muesli is a delicious and local company that makes granola and granola bites which are gluten free and so delicious!

IMG_0977Crispy Green is an awesome company which has great snack options for kids and adults. Freeze dried fruit and nothing else makes for a delicious bite of something sweet! Some big packs even have smaller individual packs inside for on the go.

IMG_1744Many other snack items such as nuts, dried fruit, bars and more make for quick snacks and pantry staples.  I especially love Kind bars and High Valley Orchard snacks.  The Nature’s Bakery vanilla fig bar is delicious and while it is not gluten free it is dairy free and so yummy! Maybe grab that for someone who is not required to eat gluten free and surprise them with a delicious snack!

IMG_1756Just Great Stuff has a delicious line of organic bars that seriously pack a punch! They are flavorful, healthy, gluten free and organic. A great snack bar.

IMG_1757A big company like Stonewall Kitchen has even jumped on the gluten free wagon and recently started offering a chocolate cupcake mix and vanilla cupcake mix for those gluten intolerant people.  This company makes delicious stuff!! It’s especially great for when you are having a party and need an easy dessert that will satisfy all people.

IMG_1758Another favorite, Tate’s Bake Shop, has made a line of gluten free cookies. If you’ve ever had their original chocolate chip cookie you’ll know how delicious they are and what a treat it is to have a gluten free option!!! Awhile back I made an cookie cake with Tate’s cookies and these gluten free substitutes would allow anyone to make this amazing dessert! Check out the recipe: Chocolate Whipped Cream Cookie Cake.

IMG_1759Lucy’s cookies are a great cookie substitute for the gluten intolerant people in your family! These cookies are yummy and even vegan!

IMG_1760WOW cookies are a great way to start or end the day.  With a variety of flavors from chocolate to oatmeal they can be a delicious breakfast cookie or a great midnight snack!

IMG_1761Coconut, chocolate and gluten free all wrapped into a macaroon… sign me up! Jennie’s makes 2 varieties of macaroons that are delicious and so sinful!

IMG_1762The brand that probably started gluten free food options, Udi’s, not only offers bread, bagels and muffins but they now have cookies!

IMG_1763Zing Bars are more than just a snack.  They are a nutritional powerhouse intended to satisfy you and taste good at the same time.  Definitely worth a try!
