I am a crunch girl - I love my crunch! However, if you are someone like me, who stays away from refined grain products; crunch is nearly impossible to find! Enter in - FLACKERS! Thanks to Flackers, I have got my crunch back on!
These wonderful bits of crunch are the brilliant work of a local M.D. in Minneapolis, MN. Dr. Alison Levitt, M.D., (a.k.a. Dr. In The Kitchen) developed these for her patients and began to sell them at her practice back in 2005. Later, Dr. Levitt joined forces with Donn Kelly, a seasoned food marketer and former sales executive at General Mills. As a result, we now have a healthy crunch option in our lives!
Talk about healthy, look at this line up of health:
Three flackers add up to only 100 calories! (That's 33.33 calories for one!)
One serving has 7 grams of fiber.
One serving has 5 grams of protein.
Each flacker is made from organic golden and brown whole flax seeds.
Each flacker contains those GREAT Omega-3 fatty acids.
Raw (baking and frying depletes nutrients)
Seriously folks, this is a healthy persons dream come true!
Flackers come in 3 flavors; savory, dill, and rosemary. My personal favorite is savory. For some, these may take some getting used to. My mom, who normally likes healthy things, did not care of them, but, my 9 year old daughter LOVES them. Our favorite way to enjoy flackers is by spreading real organic farm butter on top of them. Eat them alone or couple them with soups, salads, or dips.
Keep in mind that flackers are high in fiber. I always recommend drinking lots of water when you are consuming things high in fiber as you could experience some constipation if you don't.
Luckily, you can buy flackers in a lot of places now! Click here to see if they are carried at a grocery store near you!
