Default Need some advice on Crackers I bought

OK so yesterday I'm in BJ's and I bought a box of Organic Stoneground Wheats (Baked Wheat and Flaxseed Crackers). They seem like something we can have but I always second guess my purchases. Need some Beach Experts here to help please please decide. THese crackers are delicious but don't want to eat what we shouldn't have. I cut and pasted a pic of the nutrition label. One thing I did love about WW's is they had a grocery guide book that really helped when food shopping. WHy can't SB have one?

PLEASE HELP!!! THank you everyone (hugs!)

That's what I thought... I'm used to seeing white flour listed as "enriched", so I was hoping that I was wrong...

Triscuits Reduced Fat, yum yum. But otherwise you will just have to read ingredients and make sure everything is legal.

I just did some googling and found some recipes for crackers. They look really easy to make. While some of them are not SB friendly, they can be fixed to be friendly... I think when I get into P2 I'll be experimenting with crackers... I'll post the yummy recipes and the ones I fix too!! I'm excited... Just a week and 3 days to go!!!

I was just looking for something different... something to have with my salads. I used to have a piece of garlic Texas Toast, but since I can't do that... I miss the bread with the greens.

You could find a recipe to make cracker and even croutons that are SB friendly. Most of the recipes I saw are very easy and they don't entail yeast stuff. Although, you could take some ww bread, cut it up into small chunks and bake that until its golden browned and use that as croutons.. You could probably dust them with some garlic and such to give it whatever flavors you'd like...

If you can find "Mary's Gone" crackers at your local organic (or grocery) store, they are really good.
