Health benefits according to Dr. Axe.

Here are some photos of amaranth flowers (below). The genius, Amaranthus, includes at least 70 species of amaranth and immense diversity. Only certain varieties are used for their “grains" (seeds, actually) and leafy greens. In fact, many varieties are considered weeds. However, many species offer colorful foliage and beautiful unique flowers, so if you live in a climate where the plant is not invasive it might be a great, robust one to add to the garden.

Buttery Crackers, Super-Seeded Crackers, and More

Molasses Cookies


This episode is all about crackers. Learn how to make simple, healthy snacks at home. We’ll cover everything from rich buttery crackers, to crackers packed with seeds, to crackers made with cooked whole grains! All of the recipes are dairy free and there are two vegan and paleo recipes.


Below are the recipes from the episode:

  • Buttery Crackers (Rich & Delicately Crispy - admittedly my favorite)

  • Norwegian Crisp Bread. Yes, it’s also traditional in Sweden and there are variations around Europe, including German Knackebrot. They are super hearty and packed with nutrients. You can adapt it to be paleo or try this paleo alternative, Super Seedy Crackers (I couldn’t help myself with the title..)

  • Quinoa & Corn Crackers (An Oh-so-satisfying crunch!)
