Garlic Turmeric Crackers!

photo 5Crunchy things are my favorite…like I can get a little addicted. Thankfully, I have broken this/ been able to substitute with crunchy vegetables like celery and carrots. However, for a while, those crunchy veggies just wouldn’t cut it…I wanted a CRACKER! I’ve never liked chips, but whole grain yummy crackers that are crunchy and delicious…yeah, gimme! I would go through an entire stalk of celery or an enormous amount of carrots and still not feel satisfied.

Too bad I didn’t have this cracker recipe that is full of healthful ingredients that you can most definitely enjoy in moderation! The best part about this recipe is that you can constantly mold and change the flavors based on what you want! I used turmeric and garlic to flavor these and added sunflower seeds for a little texture.

Turmeric and garlic are extremely healthy, plus I absolutely love garlicky crackers…or garlicky anything really. And turmeric, in the correct quantity or recipe, also adds some great flavor! Not to mention it’s amazing for inflammation, which is so important since inflammation plays a role in any illness or pain in the body!

Not only are these crackers healthier and more delicious than the ones you buy in the store, but you are also helping the environment by reducing waste that comes from purchasing packaged foods!
