Flackers and Seedsters: Healthy Snacks for the Holidays

Flackers and Seedsters

We are always looking for yummy snacks that are healthy – especially around the holiday season. We all have family and friends visiting for the holidays and it’s always nice to have healthy snacks in the pantry for those last minute get togethers too. Flackers and Seedsters are the perfect snack to keep on hand!

The Doctor in the Kitchen is a company bringing what many of us are looking for to the table, a healthy alternative to snacking – which is perfect for the holidays. Their motto, “Good Food is Wise Medicine”, makes complete sense when you glance at their ingredients lists – each product includes a healthy dose of omega-3’s and omega-6’s, which are great for such health benefits as lowering inflammation, alleviating depression, protection against Alzheimer’s disease, increased brain function, better bone health, and a higher metabolism.

The Doctor in the Kitchen currently has two organic product lines that will transform how you snack. The Flackers are raw, gluten free flax seed crackers, these are perfect for serving with dips. However, with five flavor options, Cinnamon & Currants, Sun Ripened Tomato & Basil, Rosemary, Savory, and Dill, these treats are so savory, you can eat them on their own too!

The second product line is Seedsters, which is a raw, gluten free sprouted organic flax seed snack and by far my favorite. You have four flavors to choose from: Sweet Onion & Garlic, Sea Salt & Black Pepper, Cinnamon & Currants, and Sweet & Smokey Barbecue. As snacks based on the flax seed, they are a great source of soluble and insoluble fiber which supports healthy cholesterol levels, as well as plant lignans, vitamins, and minerals. I like to throw these in our packs before hitting the biking trails or the water for a paddleboarding adventure. They are filling and delicious too – a win, win!
