What We Eat: Flax Crackers

It has been said that flax seed is one of the world’s healthiest foods since it is rich in omega-3 fatty acids, anti-oxidants, and fiber.  The only “problem” with this super food is that some find it challenging to add flax seed into their daily eating patterns.

These tasty crackers are a great way to add flax into your diet.  Dip these diet friendly crackers into hummus, load them up with salsa, or even dunk them in your favorite soup.

    The flax crackers look great. I assume the nutrition information is if you eat the entire pan of crackers? That is a lot of fiber!
