Flax Seed Crackers with Avocado and Tomato

One of my favorite snacks is flax seed crackers with avocado and tomato. Perfect as an afternoon snack or breakfast if I’m pressed for time.

It’s a snack that improves mood, enhances mental acuity and gives you luminous skin. A snack for a smart, happy, pretty you.

Half a packet of flax crackers has approximately 10 grams of fiber (5x as much as oatmeal), 7 grams of protein (about the same as an egg) and the same amount of omega-3’s as a 4oz piece of wild salmon. And this is a snack!

Flax seeds are also rich in magnesium and manganese which help boost vitality levels and deactivate an enzyme that leads to the formation of wrinkles.

The crackers must be raw as the fragile omega 3’s in flax seeds are damaged when heated. If you see non-dehydrated flax crackers, don’t buy them (the same goes for cereal and bread), as the omega 3’s have already been damaged by the heat used to make the product.

By pairing the avocado and tomatoes with flax seed crackers, you help absorb the fat soluble anti-aging antioxidant, lycopene, from the tomatoes.

My four favorite raw flax crackers are listed in order of taste preference:
