Today’s TSP Amazon Item of the day is something I am very excited about. It is Flackers Flax Crackers. A couple years ago I let my paleo diet go for a bit, got to lax and put a lot of weight back on. No where near all of it but too much. Along the way I have gone back to Protein Power as the core of my Paleo Diet.
Thanks to all that I am once again in pretty good shape. One thing I always hated giving up was a crunchy cracker. With Flackers I have found my low carb crunchy muse. You will notice in my link, I go to an exact match search for flackers, with a setting to pull up free shipping options.
These are being sold by a few vendors, pricing for volume is all over the map, so I leave it to you to pick and choose what works best for you. Many are “add on items” meaning your total order has to be over 25 bucks but then shipping is free, so combine them with another item if you just want to try a bag or three.
I am going to suggest though that your first purchase be a just two or three packs, because not everyone will like them. I LOVE them. We got Rosemary and Savory to try them out. Dorothy hated the Rosemary (funny because she like the herb) and said she could, “get used to the Savory ones”. She is not in love with the texture though.
Me I am happy as a pig with a bowl of corn soaked in beer! I did some of these with sardines, very nice. I also did some up with yogurt cheese (mixed with cracked pepper, garlic and jalapeno) topped wtih some good quality sliced ham. To quote Emeril Lagasse BAM!
Here are the stats, a serving has the following…
- Carbs 8 grams
- Fiber 7 grams
- Net Carbs 1 (yes, fing one, woo hoo)
- Protein 5 grams
- Fat 8 grams (but zero Saturated or Trans fats and about 5 Grams of it is Omega 3s, most of the rest is ALA which many take as a supplement)
- Calories 110 (but unless you get stupid you don’t count calories on low carb)
- Seven grams of fiber
Okay so you have a crunchy snack, with one net carb a serving, a good amount of protein, loaded with Omega 3s, ALA and fiber. This can’t get better can it? Oh yea, these things are sprouted and raw. If you read the write up on the makers website, they are soaked until just sprouted, then seasoned, pressed and dried to a crisp. Yes sprouted!
Again my only caution is you may not like them, or you might, a whole lot. But if you are low carb give Flackers a try and see if they work for you. Frankly this is a super food, something you can eat a bit of every day and never feel bad about it, ever. Below is a short video to give you an idea of what they look like.
