Wellness Wednesday: My Favorite GG Cracker Recipes



Happy Wednesday y'all! I haven't done a "Wellness Wednesday" in a while, and I've been dying to share with you some of my favorite GG cracker recipes. 

What are GG Crackers?


These crackers are packed full of fiber totaling at 4 grams per cracker. Jess why should I care about having fiber in my diet? Glad you asked! Fiber is important when it comes to helping your digestive system, improve blood sugar levels, lowers cholesterol, and helps keep you regular (if you know what I mean ***wink wink).

Lets talk about calorie investment when converting to the GG. Each cracker is a total of 12 calories, and these are PRETTY BIG CRACKERS! Total calorie win here!

What's awesome too is that if you need a snack you can eat a couple of these without feeling guilty! Did I mention that you don't get that food belly bloat that you would normally get after eating bread, and helps control your appetite?!  Bikini win here!

Now I'm not going to lie these crackers are very bland by themselves, but you can dress them up to make a yummy snack or meal. 

Whenever I buy my GGs I typically buy them in bulk here, and it's such a good deal! Keep scrolling down to see some of my favorite recipes for GG crackers. 

Faux Avocado Toast


If I'm working from home I usually dive into this recipe for a midday fuel meal. The fattiness of the avocado mixed with the tomatoes make for a great meal replacement that will leave you feeling satisfied.

  • Cherry tomatoes halved
  • Lemon Pepper
Direction
  1. Cut avocado in half, and mash it.
  2. Spread the avocado mash on the crackers.
  3. Top the spread with cherry tomatoes, and lemon pepper.

I know that a caprese salad doesn't call for a cracker, but by adding a GG you get more fiber in your diet. Bonus*** the cracker makes it easier to eat. Say goodbye to a fork and knife #byefelicia.
