  • Nut-Thin crackers. No wheat!



    I just discovered these when I visited my daughter this weekend, and I've found them in the local Publix in the health food/organic section. They are made by Blue Diamond, the nut people and come in a wide range of nut types and flavors.


    While not perfect, I feel a LOT less guilty using these now with hummus or my yogurt cheese. Sixteen (!!) crackers, 130 cals, 23 grams of carbs.


    Ingredients: "Rice Flour, hazelnut meal, potato starch, expeller pressed safflower oil (with natural tocopherols) salt, natural butter flavor (contains milk.)"


    No bwahaaahaaa wheat. Yay!


    Please, I know this isn't pure PB, that it has safflower oil - wow, a whole 3 grams per serving - etc., etc. White rice flour is w/o a doubt the least obnoxious grain product. I'm cool with this product.

    Bayou - I'm just curious, you're eating hummus? I LOVE hummus but assumed it was a no-no, or at least saved as a sensible indulgence. How often do you have it - ie sensible indulgence or a self-approved regular part of your diet? Is it of the chickpea/garbanzo variety? Thanks!

        So what then do you expect us to say to that if you know it's not primal Why not make some home-made crackers from nut flower and eliminate all unnecessary ingredients all together? Are you that big of a convenience-guy?

          My guess would be because burnt doesn't taste good with hummus haha!

            Nut Thins are delicious. I used to love them spread with Laughing Cow cheese, but gave them both up when I went primal.


            Curse you for reminding me of their existence!

              Hummus! Yes, please do let us know how you include this in PB (and I'm not having a dig, it's just that I love the stuff!). Do you treat it as an, er, treat?

                    Actually I like babaganouj better than hummus, and best of all, no chick peas!

                      Maba - That SoG hummus recipe ROCKS. Thanks for posting that. Just wish I'd seen that back when my garden was producing zukes.

                        I just started doing hummus, maybe one container a week. A "sensible indulgence." Some homemade veggie dips will be a good addition. I tell ya, that yogurt cheese I made is incredible, although not one person responded to the thread. Thick, tasty, no fat so very high protein.


                        I can't imagine going through the effort to make crackers when I can buy them close enough to good enough. Once again, maybe for the 543rd time, it's not just WHAT, but HOW MUCH.


                        I hew probably 95% to The Dogma. I've made my informed decisions of what and how much I'll vary from PB Purity.

                          Thanks, OTB, I will have to look for those. I really need something to put chicken liver pate on!

                            I found some sesame, almond meal, and flax crackers at a health food store. I can't remember the brand - it may have been local. They were awesome and grain free. A bit higher on the carb scale, though, for those sensitive to carbs.


                            As an aside, baba ghanouj and bruschetta are my two favorite primal toppings. The SoG chickpea-free hummus is also pretty good.

                              I looked at the SOG recipe; I'm sure it's very good. Note the tahini. Probably worse than chickpeas. But the idea of adding zucchini is great.
