I miss the satisfaction of a good, crunchy, grainy snack like crackers, chips, or a bowl of crunchy cereal. I miss toast... I miss "snacking" in general, but I guess the lack of snacks could be a good thing. Or is it? I'm not trying to lose... (more)

Taro Chips! Yucca Chips! Tortilla Chips! All these can be made by drying them out in your oven and frying them in coconut oil. I am also a cruncher and I eat pepitas (pumpkin seeds/squash seeds, roasted w/ sea salt and turmeric) Why deprive... (more)

I am trying to dehydrate string beans. Trader Joe's sells dehydrated crunchy string beans that I am trying to replicate without the canola oil and tapioca starch that theirs is prepared with. I would prefer olive oil. I have a dehydrater at home,... (more)

The dehydrating alone is not making them crispy: the starch coating and frying is making them crispy. Yes, the dehydrating helps. However, the moist-and-yet-crispy bite to them is undoubtedly from the frying. Consider dehydrating them much, much... (more)

nowhere on their website do they list the ingredients or post the nutrition label and they believe grains and soy are healthy....not this kid; i'd rather crunch on some celery or baked kale.

Do you think unsweetened banana chips fried in coconut oil are relatively paleo-friendly? I just need something crunchy sometimes. If you have any crunchy snack ideas, do share. I can't eat too many nuts though.

Get the fancy grade dried coconut shreds (the fat shreds) put about a cup into a pan on med high till toasty brown. Toss with salt and whatever spice you like. I like salt and cinnamon or salt and smoked chipotle powder.

So, I have recently tried a number of "breaded" paleo recipes such as fried chicken, fried okra, etc. which use a combination of coconut flour and almond flour as the breading. They all seem to have great flavors, but time and again, my "fried"... (more)

Don't use mixes with coconut flour. It makes things gummy.

Every once in a while I get a crunchy streak and I've been playing around with home sprouting, and have had some luck with a sprouting jar. I have been sprouting the Now Foods Zesty Mix with Clover, Fenugreek and Radish. Ingredients: (61%)... (more)

Here is a well researched article that debunks the concerns about eating sprouts. Although the science is a decade old, it appears to have more science in it than any of the scare mongers. I'm sticking with my mix of many types of sprouts until I... (more)
