GG Scandinavian Fiber Crispbread Thins
Fiber is so important on many levels. Maintaining a healthy weight, supporting digestion, lowering your cholesterol levels and odds of heart disease, and it also helps reduce your risk of certain cancers. If you are looking for a tasteful fiber-loaded product to add into your diet, GG Scandinavian Fiber Crispbread Thins are the right fit for you. GG crackers are full of soluble fiber (which makes you feel fuller longer) and the original variety contains four grams of fiber, just twenty calories and only two net carbs in each cracker. The crackers are great because you can get creative each day so you don’t get bored adding different spreads or proteins to them. Some of my favorites are natural peanut butter or almond butter, cream cheese with lox, and avocado with swiss. Worried about carbs and still want that pizza? Try some low-fat mozzarella with a light sauce sprinkled with healthy spices. Check out this fiber loaded crispbread at

Real Food From The Ground Up
Forget the guilt. These are the snacks that you desire with a plant-based twist. Real Food From The Ground Up has a variety of snacks such as crackers, pretzels, puffed snacks, and tortilla chips. What is even better is that they are made with real cauliflower and butternut squash, so no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives.

Also, coming soon are three new butternut squash-based product offerings: Butternut Squash Tortilla Chips and Stalks (a puffed snack in two flavors).

I will be honest. I love to munch on Cheetos. However, but my belly disagrees and I always feel bad later and consuming the puffs. Introducing HIPPEAS.
