Anything even remotely crunchy is bad for an O, or so it seems.  And I don't mean veggie-crunchy.  I mean like potato chip crunchy.  While I do enjoy meat, every now and again a girl needs something crunchy. I hate to break the diet, but there it is.  If all these grains make us gain weight, what do we do for a little texture in our lives?  Soy is out for me. Does mean things to my gastrointestinal system.  I like rice cakes, but according to another post, they can make me gain weight.

What's a girl to do?

Spelt pretzels are good if you are a secretor. Here is a recent thread on the topic:
Spelt Pretzels


Try Solea brand Olive Oil Sweet Potato Chips. They are great! They are much better tasting, assuming you like the taste of olive oil, then the Terra brand sweet potato chips and they don't have any avoids.
Because of its smoke point, a special cooking process is needed to fry in olive oil. Instead of the more typical flash-frying methods, Good Health (now called Solea) chips are cooked in vacuum-sealed cauldrons at a lower temperature for a longer time. “The longer cooking time allows the thick-sliced potatoes to cook all the way through, and the low temperature prevents the olive oil from breaking down,” explains President François Bogrand.

Here is an online source for the Solea Olive Oil Sweet Potato Chips, in case you need or want to order a case of them online.

Terra brand makes a parsnip chip that is pretty darn good, too. Click HERE.

I've tried spelt pretzels, which were good, but I try to avoid yeast as well, and I haven't met a pretzel yet that isn't made with yeast.  

I think I've had the Terra sweet potato chips, but wasn't crazy about them. I'll look for the Solea chips.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, The problem with Terra is that in many of their products their choice of oil might be an avoid.  Besides Olive oil tastes so much better!

I would still like to try those. I didn't know they made the Parsnip chips.

It's true that their oil *may* be an avoid because the ingredients say: canola or safflower or sunflower oil...don't they know?

Yes...they are a very good chip, but as you say MoDon the oils are bad.  I have emailed them a few times as their potato chips are done with olive oil.  Go figure.

Drea--the reason manufacturers list multiple oils is because they use whatever is cheapest at the time of manufacture. In other words, if canola is cheaper than safflower oil the day or week that batch of chips or pretzels or whatever is made, that's what they'll use.

Yeah, that makes sense cost-wise, but I sure do wish manufacturers would just pick an ingredient and use it. Makes it so much easier when buying commercial foods.

Perhaps if we all request the parsnip chips be made with olive oil or other compliant oil....y'never know...they may make a batch just for us and we can order in bulk...

I can so relate to 'where can a girl get a crunch' I feel the same way!

All these suggs are fabulous, especially the pumpkin seeds one because they are a.) beneficial, and b.) DELISH!  Eden Organic makes an excellent line of different seasoned varieties of roasted, shelled pumpkin seeds.  I like their plain, roasted ones, with just salt added.  I'm kind of a classic purist when it comes to pumpkin seeds *lol*:  just salt and, ideally, a little oil on 'em please!  But Eden doesn't add oil and you don't miss it.  They are delish.

Another thing I have often recommended on this board, that some bril person recommended to me (who were you?  I forget--sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Jump in and bask in the glory of the credit you deserve!) is to make a popcorn substitute by simply breaking up some rice cakes (must be Lundberg brand, all the other brands taste like styrofoam packaging material) and adding whatever toppings you would normally top popcorn with.  My personal fave is to use dark-toasted sesame oil with sea salt and nutritional yeast flakes (although lately I must report with sadness that I have all but given up my BELOVED nutritional yeast flakes for reasons too long and digressy to even get into in this post, but they are great and I recommend them highly to others).  You could use ghee with salt and garlic, and/or other herbs/spices.  Anything you would put on popcorn, you put on your crumbled up rice cakes.  I'm telling you, this is exactly like popcorn!  Only O-friendlier (won't go so far as to say "O-friendly", but it is friendliER *lol*...it is neutral under the letter of the BTD law, so go for it!).

The Solea sweet potato chips are good but very expensive and somewhat hard to find (unless you have a Whole Foods in your area.  If you have a WF in your area, the entire BTD will be a breezaroo to follow, even on a bad day when you haven't planned or prepared anything and you just need convenience, convenience, convenience:  WF rocks the Casbah, man).

Try the Eden Organic pumpkin seeds, and try to broken up "rice cake popcorn".

Finally, one thing I accidentally discovered one day at work a while back was a faux "Chex party mix" by taking "Mary's Gone Crackers" herb variety flax crackers, crumbling them up and mixing them with pumpkin seeds:  UMMMMMMMMM!  You could add raisins for a nifty trail mix, too.

ENJOY!

I Like the Eden roasted organic pumpkin seeds too. In fact, I bought a 10lb bag of them several months ago, which is all gone except for about 1 cup. It is time to reorder!

If I remember correctly, buying the bulk Spicy Pumpkin Seeds, Dry Roasted w Tamari, 10 lb, Organic bag saves 10% off of the case price of the smaller packages.

And buying a case of the individual smaller packages, Pumpkin Seeds, Dry Roasted & Salted, 4 oz, Organic and
Spicy Pumpkin Seeds, Dry Roasted w Tamari, 4 oz, Organic, will save you 10% off of just buying the individual packages.
