If you scroll through Instagram as much as I do, you probably have noticed these not so pretty brown crackers popping up in your feed. I did. And that’s how I learned about GG crackers.
So what are GG crackers? They’re a Scandinavian crispbread packed with fiber. I’m talking lots and lots of fiber. Each cracker has 4 grams of fiber and only 20 calories. As a carb-o-holic, I was intrigued and immediately ordered a pack of five.
My initial reaction? Yuck! If you take a bite of the cracker on its own, it’s as if you’re eating cardboard. So I started experimenting, adding various toppings I used to put on my whole grain toast. I started craving the crunch and was pleasantly surprised on how much fuller I was by switching from the bread to the cracker (hello mucho fiber!).
Now, I am in no way a nutritionist. But I do get questions on what I eat every day. And for the past few months, GG crackers have been a daily snack. Here are my three favorite ways to top them:
GG Crackers for Breakfast
Avocado crackers are my new avocado toast. I add olive oil and lemon and top it with a dash of red chili flakes for a kick.
I’ve also been trying to eat more salmon for omega-3s. To switch things up from my avo crackers, I’ll use sliced smoked salmon with hardboiled eggs, lemon, sea salt and fresh dill.
GG Crackers for a Snack
For snacks, I’ve been having GG crackers with peanut butter and honey. My two favorite nut butters right now are Trader Joe’s peanut butter with flax and chic seeds (super filling!) and their raw creamy almond butter.
Do you have any healthy snacks you eat every day? Would love to hear your recommendations!
