Five Genius Ways to Get Whole Grains
5. Laiki Black Rice Crackers
Skip the saltines. Say “buh-bye” to buttery crackers. These whole grain crackers are all that they’re cracked up to be … and so much more. In fact, Laiki Black Rice Crackers are the 2015 sofi award winner for crackers! What makes them special is that they’re notably simple. They’re made with only three ingredients: whole grain black rice, sustainable-farmed palm oil, and sea salt. That’s it!
The black rice gets its rich color naturally, which is a key indicator of beneficial phytonutrients. Plus, these crunchy, airy bites are gluten-free and vegan. They’re a splendid bite–with or without toppings!
