Savory Flax Crackers

Copy of Recipes (3)Healthy snacks are a great addition to any diet. Be it low carb, high carb, paleo, vegan or whatever you choose, healthy snacks are perfect to curb hunger and cravings throughout the day.

They also give you a great nutritional boost which is always a good thing. The more nutrients the better! As I like to get all my nutrition and nutrients from the food I eat, so the more I can get, the better! One particular healthy snack ingredient is flax!

We experienced one last real jolt, and then it simmered down. We later learnt that the quake went on for around 2mins, which is a freaking long time when you’re in a situation like that.  Continue reading
