I don’t have Celiac Disease but I’ve been asked by a few friends who have it, if I have any recommendations. Whether something is veg*n friendly is really my concern. As I have scanned the labels for my own concerns, I have come to notice gluten-free labelings as well. So for all my gluten-free friends out there, here’s some of my “Accidentally Gluten-Free” Favorites.
Nature’s Path: Both the cereals below are listed as vegetarian and gluten-free. I’ve been a little hesitant about this company after their round-about response to my whey query. Judging their ingredients, these cereals do appear to be safe.
- Crunchy Vanilla Sunrise
- Crunchy Maple Sunrise
On the Go:
Larabar has to be my number one grab and go. All gluten-free and nearly all vegan, how they get can get between 5-7 simple ingredients to taste like Key Lime Pie or a Cinnamon Roll is uncanny.
Mock Meat Substitutes:
Lightlife has about 5 gluten-free, certified vegan options.
Amy’s Kitchen is an entirely vegetarian/vegan company. They have 100+ products for those with gluten intolerance, including 5 rice crust pizzas. The company has a Special Diets section for those with Celiacs, among others for various Illnesses and Allergies.

- I love to mix things up; this is both Soy Free and Gluten Free.
- Certified Vegan by Vegan.org.
- Cherry Amaretto is my favorite (so far), with only 130 calories a serving/4 servings a container, zero mg sodium and cholesterol. (Note: Don’t eat the whole container in one sitting, please. Coconut milk has some amazing health properties, but one serving does have 25% of your daily value of Saturated Fat. Enjoy over time.)
