Move over Mary’s Gone Crackers! There’s a new gluten-free cracker in town that’s made its debut and is just as crispy and satisfying as the best of them!
My Flax Snackers are a perfect nutritious and delicious starter for this weekend’s Fourth of July Celebration and are full of Omega-3 fiber from flax seeds. Flax seeds are uniquely satisfying and healthy because they supply lignans.

The most common everyday foods like wheat, dairy, corn, yeast, sugar, peanuts and soy can lead to weight loss resistance!
They create bloating and inflammation while inhibiting your ability to access stored body fat as fuel and tamp down metabolism.

I’ll admit it, I’m in awe.
Over the past 25 years, whether its 10 lbs or 100 lbs, literally thousands of Fat Flushing men and women have lost weight and kept it off. Using the Fat Flush diet and detox principles, they’ve also accrued a myriad of lifestyle benefits.
This is all the more admirable when you consider that weight loss is not just about counting calories, exercise, and willpower anymore.
There are a number of factors that play an insidious role in weight loss resistance including undetected food sensitivities, insulin resistance, inflammation, malabsorption, GMOS, endocrine-disrupting chemicals, obesogens, plastics, pesticides, hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, estrogen dominance, yeast overgrowth, liver toxicity and a lack of beneficial gut bacteria.
