A Healthy Crunchwich for Lunch

I am fond of crunchie things.  And since I have to watch my intake of carbs, I was so happy when I discovered that the fiber and carb ratios in Real Foods’ Corn Thins from Whole Foods was great for our Cancer Prevention diet!

Two rounds are only 44 Calories, 0 Fat, 0 sugar, 8g Carb and 1g Fiber.

According to our Good Carb Formula, this is an acceptable carb (fiber x 10 is > than the total Carbs). Hurray!  I can have two crackers and not blink.

I’ve decided to call sandwiches made from these crunchy wonders CRUNCHWICHES!

They are so versatile, I’ve had them with a dozen different filling, both sweet and savory, and they all work.

Crunchwiches are fun to take to work as a snack or part of a healthy lunch (add a piece of fruit, some carrots and green tea).

Avo-Almond Cheese-Tomato-Herb Crunchwich

Today’s filling is:

  • Almond Cheese
  • Organic Heirloom Tomato
  • Avocado slices
  • Organic Basil (from the garden)
  • Organic Watercress
  • A light smear of Vegenaise

Top with second cracker and Munch-a-Crunch away!

A yummy sweet filling is:

  • Almond butter
  • Chia Seeds (sprinkle on almond butter)
  • Under-ripe Banana slices
  • Cinnamon (sprinkle on bananas)
  • Thin Organic Apple slices
