My 6 Favourite Gluten-Free & Vegan Snacks + Weekend Fun

My 6 Favourite Gluten-Free & Vegan Snacks + Weekend Fun

If you read last week’s blog post, then you know how much I enjoy snacking. In light of my love of food, I decided to put together this brief list of my current favourite gluten-free and Vegan snacks.

Que Pasa Organic Red or Blue Corn Chips

Best served with guacamole or spicy salsa, these chips are simple and amazing. They are Vegan, gluten-free, organic, non-GMO and volcanic stone ground corn chips. I kid you not, the volcanic element changes the taste of the chip!

Wholesome Sweeteners’ Delish Fish

These are one of my favourite Vegan candies because the ingredient list doesn’t include any corn syrups or other questionable ingredients, plus it’s free of any artificial colours and flavours. But don’t be fooled, these are very tasty and juicy!

MadeGood Chocolate Chip Granola Bars

Besides the fact that this is the perfect organic, gluten-free and Vegan snack for when you’re craving a sweet treat, each bar actually holds a single serving of vegetables! If you have kids and they are picky eaters, these bars will ensure that they meet their daily nutritional requirements.

barkTHINS Dark Chocolate w/ Almonds + sea salt

I salute whoever invented this. If you know me, you know that I love dark chocolate. The almonds and sea salt are just the cherry on top. While the package doesn’t label this as a Vegan or gluten-free product, the ingredients are clean and straightforward. These delicious slivers are non-GMO and are made with at least 65% fair trade ingredients.

Vegan Rob’s Dairy Free Cheddar Puffs

I used to love crunchy Cheetos before I stopped eating dairy products. When I found out about Vegan Rob’s, I was over the moon. So far, the cheddar puffs are my favourite, but I did try asparagus chips, which I also really loved. I’m excited to try their other products which are all Vegan, allergy-friendly and packed full of veggies.

LiveKuna Kuna Pops Quinoa & Chia Spicy Chili Sticks

I discovered these by accident–talk about a nice surprise. These sticks have a clean ingredient list and are packed with probiotics! This particular flavour is mild, Vegan and gluten-free. I also really love that with every purchase, you provide students with healthy food and help advance projects in Ecuador!

On Sunday, October 21, I attended Montreal’s Vegan Festival, a non-profit organisation encouraging the public to discover veganism.

The two-day weekend festival was free admission and had hosts for lectures, cooking demos, workshops and exhibitors.

As a gluten-free and dairy-free Vegetarian, I was pleased to see so many vendors like Nuts For Cheese, Nabati Foods, Kind Snacks, Lynq, Wholly Veggie, Raw Vitality, VG Gourmet and more, who offered options for people with allergies.

My favourite products:

  • Wholly Veggie’s Cauliflower Cheese Pizza
  • Nuts for Cheese’s Chipotle Cheddar Cheese
  • VG Gourmet’s Greek Style Tofu
  • Nabati’s Peanut Butter Chocolate Cheesecake


The Garden of Lights Festival took place in Montreal’s Botanical Garden, which I visited for the first time last weekend. This edition displayed three cultural gardens: The Chinese Garden for its traditional lanterns and fishing tale, the Japanese Garden for a path inspired by the seasons, and the First Nations Garden featuring an intense multimedia experience that lets visitors feel the beating heart of the Cycle of Life.

All of these installations were beautiful and carefully crafted. It honestly felt like I was in wonderland. See for yourself:

The Chinese Garden was my favourite by far because it used the space effectively, was full of historical information and was beautifully curated. To see a full tour of the gardens, watch my highlights on Instagram.
