Friday is everyone’s favourite day. So I thought I’d take an opportunity to share a couple favourites of my own.
Let’s start with the crack:
These crackers were love at first crunch. They come in a variety of flavours like Black Pepper, Herb, Caraway and Onion. They are all super tasty. I think I’m partial to the Black Pepper- by the slimmest of margins. They’re pretty mainstream and beloved right now, so luckily for you they are found in most major grocery stores. I got the jumbo box pictured above at COSTCO!
Here is my ode to Mary’s Crackers. Beyond being totally yummy, they are:
- super “clean” (no unnecessary additives or sweetners)
- contain minimal ingredients
- dipping them in hummus, salsa or guacamole
- topping them with avocado and tomato slices, with S & P
- spreading veggie or nut pates on them
- crumbling them on salads for a healthy alternative to croutons
If you haven’t yet crunched on some Mary’s, you are missing out.
Oh no- look what I see!
It’s my new most favourit-est hummus of all. Let me tell you about Wildwood. They are a rad company dedicated to sustainable agriculture that produce sprouted, organic soy products (e.g., tofu, tempeh, soy creamer etc…). I love how they spend money on researching ingredients and how they value food in its purest, most natural form (with no additives, sweeteners or preservatives). I try not to go overboard on (unfermented) soy these days, but when I spied their hummus selection, they pretty much had me with one word: probiotics.
That’s right my fellow probiotic-starved vegan friends. You can eat your garbanzo’s and host a little live microorganism party in your stomach all at the same time.
Wildwood– I heart you.
There are several varieties of this hummus on the shelves of my local health food store, but I love the Low Fat Original so much, I haven’t been able to bring myself to buy anything else.
As for taste- well, I’m not going to lie. It’s got a certain fermented note going on, but in a very good way. I would go as far as saying exceptional even. It’s super creamy, and an altogether great hummus option for those too lazy busy to make their own.
The grand finale:
Why not enjoy these two fav’s together, like yours truly did today at lunch? Behold a gi-normous spinach salad topped with Mary’s Crackers and a big ol blob of Wildwood hummus.
