Paleo flax seed crackers

Whole30 approved flax seed crackers |

Breakfast time

You’ve just converted into a paleo lifestyle and you’re going strong. You breeze through every single day, full of motivation and inspiration but than it hits you: you are sooooo tired of those damn eggs… Especially for breakfast it can get a tiny bit tiring. I love eggs as much as anything but after day 15 the “tired-of-eggs” phase usually kicks in. Time to change things around a bit. I have to confess that initially I figured these crackers might go for a whole30 as well, but the rules state that there is no recreating of baked goods. Even if those baked goods are technically made with whole30 approved ingredients. So sorry but not for the whole30!

The funny thing is that I first tasted these crackers  during a photoshoot. I was doing a whole30 at the time (of course… ;)) and I was very happy with the food that we had to shoot for this particular book. A book that is called “Living a century or more “- the cookbook version. I believe the cookbook is only available in Holland but the science behind it is based on the first book which you can find on amazon if you’re interested. I instantly fell in love with these crackers. They are perfect to spice things up. You can use them as a snack if you want or use them for breakfast with some smoked salmon or – there it is again – a fried egg. I know, I know… I did say that the issue was with the eggs, but eating them in another way can help too. I’ve also had them with tuna salad which was also delicious.

Or make a chicken salad to go with it etc. The options are endless and the crackers really easy to make!
