I have mentioned this before, but I will mention this again: I am all about crunchy foods! I know I am not alone in this either. I love a handful of crackers at lunch or with a snack to satisfy my need for crunch. Not all crackers are created equal though.
I know a lot of Cheez-It fans. I get it, they are tasty. But, I think I have found a contender. A good substitution if you will. One that is made from whole grains instead of enriched grains. They aren’t quite as cheesy, but where they lack in cheesiness they double in crunch.
Behold the Say Cheese! crackers from Van’s natural foods. I have written out their ingredients for you below. Look at the wholesome grains in their whole grain blend. I so dig that! As a whole, these crackers have quite a bit of ingredients… they ARE still processed after all. But the ingredients are ones you can pronounce and have heard of before.
Ingredients: Van’s Gluten Free Whole Grain Blend (Oats, Brown Rice Flour, Millet, Quinoa And Amaranth), non-GMO Expeller Pressed Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Potato Starch, Rice Flour, Cheddar Cheese (Cultured Milk, Salt, Enzymes), Whey, Brown Sugar, Salt, Buttermilk, Yeast Extract, Sesame Seeds, Sunflower Lecithin, Spices, Beta Carotene and Annatto Extract (for Color), Natural Flavors, Citric Acid, Natural Mixed Tocopherols for Freshness.
What I also like about these crackers is that they are gluten free. Even our celiac and gluten-sensitive friends can have these! I, myself, do not follow a gluten free diet, because I am not celiac or gluten-sensitive (that I know of). However, I still dig the ingredients in their whole grain blend. My favorite whole grains happen to be naturally gluten free.
And with that, eat well my friends. What is your favorite whole grain food?
