it is may... and along with its flowers (or a possible snow flurry on thursday if you live near me - seriously?) may brings with it the honor of celiac awareness month.
be sure to check out national foundation for celiac awareness' page to see what events, activities and information they have included in celebration of this month.
but first... today i took on a favorite in my family. my people love cheese crackers. cheddar bunnies, goldfish, cheez-its... all of them. my son, as all good-ol' american kids do, loves to snack on them. my husband, who typically limits his carbohydrates with iron-clad restraint, will down an entire bag of cheese crackers with a glass of milk if unsupervised.
i've not had one cheese cracker in over 6 years... until today.
not only are these crackers gluten-free, but also grain-free. and because they're made of almond flour and some whey protein, at least snacking on too many of these means a little bit of added protein too.
best of all, i got two sets of thumbs up from my cheese cracker enthusiasts! too bad i have to share... now, i can't stop eating them.
