It’s been awhile since I made a post under the “Eating Healthy” category, but I just discovered an amazing product that is a perfect reason to end the drought. The product is called Flackers made by a company called Doctor In The Kitchen. I purchased them at my favorite grocery store, Whole Foods, but you can order them via their website too.
What are Flackers?
Flackers are a cracker made out of flax seeds and other organic ingredients that not only taste good, but are good for you. Most crackers are made out of bleached flour and other processed ingredients. With Flackers you are eating a gluten free, raw vegan product. Three Flackers pack 7g of fiber (27% of daily value) and 5g of protein. They also only have 110 calories, which is way less than a comparable amount of Ritz crackers or chips.
What to do with Flackers
The reason I’m so excited to find this product is that I can now feel good about eating the other healthy foods I’ve discovered that taste good on an otherwise unhealthy cracker or chip. Foods like hummus, salsa, and garlic spread. When I read the list of ingredients, I expected a cracker that tasted more like cardboard, but I was totally shocked that these things actually taste good (really good). They taste a lot like cracker bread, but it isn’t fried or soaked in butter.
Flackers are made from 100% organic ingredients that you can feel good about putting in your body. These ingredients include organic flax seeds, organic apple cider vinegar, vegetable protein from non-GMO soybeans and purified water, organic dill, organic red chili peppers.
Flackers are also high in omega 3’s and are gluten free. It should also be noted that three Flackers only contain 90mg of Sodium (4% of daily value). Just another area where Flackers are much better than traditional crackers or chips!
