These crackers are crispy, crunchy and add a whole new dimension to your guacamole. Flax seeds are very high in both insoluble and soluble fiber and therefore promote a healthy colon. They are also full of B vitamins, magnesium, and Omega 3 fatty acids. I love the way my skin glows when I add flax meal to my daily diet. If you have never tried flax meal, you can buy it already ground at Trader Joes or Whole Foods and add small amounts to your smoothies, muffins, meatballs, and crackers. A little goes a long way!
