I do gluten free! I eat a lot of string cheese and almonds, or apples and peanut butter, or like some beef jerky and a fruit leather, I just keep it simple and small because I'm usually out on the run! I try to get 15 grams of protein in each snack, and 30 grams at each meal and it helps me gluten free but not feel like I'm being totally deprived. Hope this helps!

Have you ever checked out Your Lighter Side? It's an excellent blog with lots of gluten-free recipes of all sorts. I'm not gluten-free myself but I like to pick up interesting recipes and I just love some of the ideas I find here.

I think you've limited yourself to veggies and nuts

Any particular reason you are cutting out meat and eggs?

Also, I was going to put a couple links here, but there seem to be quite a few good ones, so:

I know some gluten free vegans and actually a lot of commercial products that are vegan are also gluten free, much to my dismay (as I like gluten). I know a lot of the gluten free/vegan cookbooks on Amazon focus on baked goods but if you are also rice free, that'd eliminate some stuff. You might want to look into a raw 'cookbook' or website for other ideas.

How about Chia Seed pumpkin pudding, something like this: (or google for similar recipes)
http://www.delightedmomma.com/2012/1...d-pudding.html

A quick google came up with this quick list which reminds me, I really like sweet potatoes as a snack but you can also make baked sweet potato chips/fries
http://thesunnyrawkitchen.blogspot.c...aw-snacks.html

This forum might also help but most people there probably eat beans and rice. This is a vegan forums gluten-free sub forum.
http://forum.theppk.com/viewforum.ph...6468dc4 40a41

People on Goneraw tend to use dehydrators which you may not have but a lot of similar items can be created in your oven, here is their recipe index
http://goneraw.com/recipes

And is there a reason you are cutting out beans? I can tell you if you are cutting out meat, dairy, beans, eggs then you will probably get most guidance from the raw vegan community. I personally wouldn't do it and there are a lot of benefits to beans. I've only heard of one medical condition that recommends cutting out beans, possibly low potassium diet? Again, there are vegans that do it but I wish them lots of luck, I love my beans.

I am gluten free and vegan. I usually eat fruit or nuts as my snacks. No beans makes things a lot harder. Have you tried quinoa? Even though they stick it in with grains, it is technically not a grain. It is the seed of a plant related to spinach. A lot of people who have problems with other grains do well on quinoa. And it is a complete protein, so it might work well for you since you don't eat beans. I make a porridge with it for the morning with some cocoa powder and almond milk and sweetened with stevia, it is really good! Or sometimes I make it with apples, cinnamon, and a sprinkling of walnuts.
chocolatecoveredkatie.com has amazing recipes if you love chocolate and want something healthy-ish (although some are quite high in calories). Oh and sweet potato fries are amazing! You could also do raw veggies (carrots, celery, etc) plain or with guacamole. Someone else mentioned apple and peanut butter, so yummy, or you could use almond butter if you are avoiding peanuts (bean family). Also I have discovered tons of amazing recipes on pinterest, so you might want to check there.
