Food Finds: Mary’s Gone Crackers
Mary’s Gone Crackers
is one of those products I would normally avoid like the plague at the store. It’s wheat free, gluten free, vegan, organic and kosher–basically devoid of all of the things I hold dear in life (except the organic part.) But, thanks to a party at work with some g
luten sensitive co-workers, I discovered what has now become my favorite cracker. These are insanely good. All of my coworkers are now addicted to these.
It is basically a disk of pressed brown rice, quinoa, brown flax, and sesame seeds with some natural flavorings. It’s really crunchy and super flavorful. I spread it with Laughing Cow Light cheese for a healthy snack that is under 200 calories.
One thing I love about these, besides the taste, is that, unlike regular crackers, these are full of complex carbohydrates (the good kind) that come from the whole grains. They also have 3 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein, so they won’t wreak havoc on your blood sugar. You get 13 of these little gems for 140 calories and 5 grams of fat.
