I'm totally in love with these products this week. No, no one is paying me to tell you about some super-sexy, trendy products. These foods are about as un-sexy as you can get. That's right, I'm excited about crackers and prunes.
Despite what you might think from this selection, I am not constipated.
But I DO love whole grains and delicious fruit!
I'm a longtime fan of Wasa brand crackers, but sometimes they're just a bit too...crunchy. And healthy. These thin & crispy Wasa crackers are light and crispy, with big salt flakes on top and excellent rosemary flavor. While they're not 100% whole grain, they are mostly whole grain and really fantastic spread with hummus or chevre of the cashew or goat variety. I've stocked up just in case my co-op runs out.
I got a craving for prunes earlier this week and figured that wasn't the sort of craving I should ignore (unlike my cravings for chocolate, peanut butter and salty snacks). The organic d'noir prunes are made by Sunsweet- I didn't even know they made organic fruits or that we carried any of their products at my co-op, so I was really surprised to #1: see that these were organic and #2: taste how freaking amazing they are. But after checking them out, I found out that they're a cooperative- Hooray! Love those grower co-ops. I seriously had to ration these out for myself because I could have eaten the whole bag in one sitting. Dangerous!!! They weren't fully dried like so many other, not-awesome, prunes. These are plump, moist and packed with plum-y flavor.
I think I'll dedicate this post to the fact that I'll be turning 30 next Sunday. This is the start of old age, people. Prunes and crackers.
