In full disclosure I was sent two packages of Slim and Trim Snacks Cauliflower Crackers. One as pictured above, Dill Pickle. The other their Classic version.
First, I’ll get my objection out of the way, they’re expensive. Almost $10 for a box of 6 crackers (subscriptions make them cheaper). Okay, moving on…they are delicious, nutritious and filling. The company was started by husband and wife, Jennifer and Patrick, after Patrick was hospitalized with life-threatening hypertension. Healed in part by a plant-based diet, Jennifer, a long-time vegetarian, and Patrick, a plant engineer, devoted themselves to creating healing, gut-focused foods.
The husband (mine) can’t keep his hands off them and he, being Dutch, is a connoisseur of all baked bread-like things. He readily agreed, with a mere smear of hummus, one cracker was surprisingly filling.
The crackers are hand made with minimal processing. Made strictly from plant-based ingredients – nuts, seeds, probiotics, herbs, spices and resistant starch – the owners tell me they aid in enhancing the health of one’s microbiome, promoting digestion, reducing inflammation, facilitating weight loss and increased energy, and reducing hypertension, heart disease, and as you can guess, they are extremely diabetes friendly. The star ingredient, cauliflower, is lightly steamed and squeeze-dried.
While I don’t eat crackers often, the husband and I agree these have a uniquely satisfying texture and taste. Jennifer explains it’s from the prebiotic fiber and magnesium from the almonds.
To see more of these little dynamo’s health benefits, and/or order, take a closer look. During these last 18 months of Covid, practically all I’ve bought is socks and masks, little pick-me-ups. These too would make that list.
