Coconut Curry Crackers From Livin' Spoonful (Video)
It's hard to find really satisfying, well-priced healthy snacks...well, I suppose it depends on what your definition of healthy is, but for me it means:
- plant based
- low or no SOS (salt, oil, sugar)
Try to think of some snacks off the top of your head, aside from produce and nuts/seeds, and you'll feel a little stumped. My favorite snack lately has been kale chips, but at $5-8 a bag it can add up, especially when I eat them all in one sitting (aka 10-15 minutes). Then there are nuts, which are great except that they too can get pricey and I get sick of them pretty fast. So what's a Eco-Vegan Gal (or Guy) to do? Personally, I go to different natural markets/sections of stores and see if I can find new treats, and luckily I did yesterday.
Just as I was about to give up hope of finding something exciting at Valencia Whole Foods in San Francisco, I noticed Livin' Spoonful's raw crackers for $4.20. I remember my friend Amber trying them but I couldn't remember what they were like. The flavors excited me: Pizza, Pesto Pumpkin Seed and Coconut Curry. I was in the mood for something sweet so I opted for the latter, thrilled that it didn't any agave nectar in it (just dates and raisins) - score! But I expected it to be dry and too savory and salty. Boy was I wrong!
