No wheat flour is listed in any of the ingredients. I like the bean chips best of the bunch. They aren't as good as the Cape Cod potato chips I love, but I like adding crunch to a soup or salad meal and I can resist these new snacks. I just can't have Cape Cods in the house.
Wow!!!

I need to go down the cracker aisle to see what's been happening while I've been away!

I know what you mean about the Cape Cod chips, I have some foods that I just can't have in the house or they trigger a binge! I limit those things to eating out or bringing home a single serving.

I really miss my youth and all of the mindless eating that I enjoyed, those were the days!

P.S. Try oven roasting some pecans with various herbs and spices to use in your soups and salads!

AB, those Rosemary and Sea Salt Flax Crackers look and sound delicious! Thank you for sharing your progress, reviews, and suggestions.

Heading back over there now to look at the rest of her site.

Oh, and the spicy pecan recipe you posted from Allrecipes - I saved that one, too. I usually make some kind of spiced pecans for Christmas gifts for my daughter and SIL. They love them. Last year it was cinnamon/nutmeg based glazed pecans. Yum.

Thanks so much AB for the recipe review and tips! I'm so baking challenged though!. I'm afraid, very afraid! Gosh, there are so many people who are carb challenged, you'd think there would be something delicious to buy. Last night I had a small bowl of your recommend Bryers 3 carb ice cream with a few fresh raspberries and I sent you my blessings. Sigh, it was so wonderful I groaned through every bite!

Thanks for the suggestion. They sound really good.

I just don't get what they mean by appetizers -- "I breathe..." No need to stimulate
my appetite; the problem is to keep it reigned in.

I ate out at a new very healthy restuarant/takeaway called Natural Kitchen (has several branches). Do you have it in US?

Their array of mixed salads (grains, seeds, pulses and vegetables) looked delectable so I just had a plate of 3 kinds of salads. One was pasta with pesto, olives and tomatoes, 2nd a finely shredded carrot, beetroot and raisin combo cole slaw and 3rd a lentil, seeds and finely diced beetroot with a savoury dressing. Exquisite - I was in chomping heaven!

I really enjoy that ice cream as a special treat, I'm glad you liked it!
