Rosemary Crackers

I owe the idea of rosemary crackers to my husband, Yusuf. We’ve changed a few things in our life since diagnose of my husband’s diabetes. You know he has a diet now he has to follow. The principle of this diet is to eat little and often. Doesn’t it sound healthy? I follow this diet too (so I will say ‘our diet’)and I must admit that I feel healthier. I used to ignore fruits as a snack but now I have fruit 3 times a day just like he does. And this really makes a difference, I don’t have digestive problems  anymore.

Another reason why I feel healthier is that we prefer whole wheat products now. We used to have whole wheat bread before the disease, but had never tried whole wheat pasta before. It is surprisingly as delicious as the regular one. Unfortunately, we don’t have many brands producing it and we can find it in one supermarket in our city. Maybe I should try to make it myself!

I tried something with whole wheat flour though, which is another change in our kitchen and we will not use white flour anymore. A great percent of wheat is removed in white flour, so are the useful elements existing in it. Our diet has a certain amount of carbohydrate, which is found in bread, pasta, pilaf, potatoes or healthy crackers like the one you see above. There aren’t many choices of whole wheat flour crackers at markets here, so I decided to make it myself. This is healthy as it has whole wheat flour and olive oil in it.

I used whole wheat flour in these rosemary crackers since the benefits of whole wheat is countless! It is rich in fiber and magnesium, which are like key elements for a healthy body. It helps you not gain weight and protects against risk of diabetes and heart diseases in addition to being a great anti-cancer agent, especially against breast cancer. No need to mention its benefits for intestines!

So don’t you think it’s time to include whole wheat products in your diet yet? Start with rosemary crackers!

    I’ve really started to like whole wheat, too. So many times it’s easy to substitute wheat for white without losing any flavor. Plus you get to feel proud of yourself for eating so healthy! :D

    Those Rosemary Crackers look like a delicious snack!

    My husband also has diabetes. I include whole wheat in our diet as much as I can, as for the whole wheat pasta i can find lots of brands in the organic shops.
    Those crackers look fabulous… a prefect snack!

    I’ve been looking for cracker recipes! Crackers are one of those things I automatically purchased in stores. A few months ago, I wondered, WHY? I can make these!! I’ll start with your recipe because you have rosemary. Such a lovely herb.

    They look fantastic. I can’t imagine having to change up my entire way of cooking like that. You’re doing an amazing job.

    Rosemary is up there as one of my favorite spices, these crackers just sound so wonderful. I’ve made similar homemade crackers and loved the texture and the taste that you just cannot get in store bought. Plus you added nigella and I just love that!

    Hope all is going well for you.
