Almond Flour Crackers

Almond Flour Crackers

I absolutely love these simple and crunchy crackers.  They are grain free a great Builder Function, and easy to make.  They go great with anything typical for crackers.  My favorites...sunbutter, or hummus, and lately....I use them to scoop my Vegan Sloppy Joes rather than using a bun or gluten free bread. 

Keep this recipe around...it's a great replacement for typical Congestor foods!

I love taco salad, and it's super easy to adapt it to any health need.  We make one batch and let the family alter it as they need.   It can be eaten as is, with lettuce or mixed greens and is a perfect Weight Rebalancing food, great for Stage 1 of our Perfect Weight Rebalancing diet plan.

What I'm Eating Today

It's really no different than what we're currently doing, you know.  Think about it...what do you basically eat?  Burger, potato, pizza, spaghetti, spaghetti sauce, noodles, bread, chicken.....you've basically just found different ways to combine the same ingredients.  Look at mexican dishes....corn, beans, rice, tomato, lettuce, burger, chicken....they've just combined them differently again and again.

We need to take this approach with salad.  All salad is not SALAD.  Just like all noodles and pasta sauce is not spaghetti...It's lasagna, manicotti, ravioli....you get the idea.
