There is corn thins. They are really nice to have with soup. There are gluten free flours you no. Scrambled eggs. There is some nice gluten free breads but make sure its not plain as there is not much fibre in them. The gluten free stock are nice to have when making soups and stews. Far nicer than maggi stocks which have wheat in them. Have plenty of fruit and veges and protein. Most supermarkets have plenty of gluten free products to choose from.

oats are iffy, as they are often processed where wheat is so i wouldnt recommend the snack bars

I know this is a bit late, but something delicious and decadent I make is peanut butter cookies. Only three ingredients and they turn out as if flour has been added to them. 1 cup smooth peanut butter (you can use crunchy), 1 cup sugar and 1 egg. Set oven to 175 C. Mix ingredients together and put in spoonfull lots on baking sheet, flatten with fork and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes. Watch them as they burn easy. Yummy, and you can always add chocolate bits too if you want.

Hi motorbo,
Oats can be contaminated as you say but another thing about them is that they have a protein (avenin) that is similar to gluten and some people react to this. Harroways of Dunedin are very careful to reduce the contamination problem but never claim theirs are gluten free :)
