Does every chip or crunchy food item have Canola oil or Sunflower Oil?? I miss the crunch! What do you all eat for texture? Please don't say raw carrots! lol. This may only apply to B's I'm not too familiar with the avoids of the other blood types.

Pecans, peanuts, cashews, walnuts, almonds, macadamia nuts cucumbers, carrots :P aaaaaaahhh  What else.

I do have a brand of potato chips we get that is just potatoes, olive oil and sea salt.  But yeah, so many brands use other oils.

Lightly toasted Lundberg Organic Rice Cakes (I like the Sweet Mochi Rice w. Brown Rice), spread or topped with whatever.  Almond butter is good.  Or cheese, or sliced meat, or ghee with nutritional yeast.

I don't know if you can have celery (don't have my book handy), but it's really good with hummus.  ;)

Roasted no-salt almonds or walnuts. Nice and crunchy :)

If by "crunch" you ever mean something succulent, the addition of fresh minced onion or apple or bell pepper to a recipe supplies satisfaction there, something to bite/chew.

Since your question is about OIL --- How about simply Toasting? Plenty gets crispy by being toasted or baked. Croutons.  :)

EDIT: ADD: Along both above lines, you could used dried toasted onion pieces as a sprinkle! Mmm.

Right. Many people have been enjoying "pita chips" for years now. Very popular.
If you're looking for something to crunch another dish, however, you can toast that bread and then grind it over your dish.

Lightly toast mixed nuts on a cookie sheet...when still warm out of the pan, put in a bowl, add a little
ghee right out of the jar and stir....then add chopped fresh dried rosemary....a little sea salt
and a small amount of dry sweetener...I've used date sugar or maple sugar crystals but it
could be brown sugar or any compliant dry sweetener.......mix together. One of the food network chefs shared this recipe on the show "The Best Thing I ever Ate" when the theme was "snacks".

Actually, here's the original recipe...It comes from a restaurant in NYC called Union Square Cafe...It's their bar

The Union Square Cafe's Bar Nuts
Recipe courtesy Nigella Lawson, 2007

Prep Time:5 minInactive Prep Time: -- Cook Time:10 min
2 1/4 cups mixed nuts

2 1/4 cups (18-ounces) assorted unsalted nuts, including peeled peanuts, cashews, Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, pecans and whole unpeeled almonds
2 tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons dark brown sugar
2 teaspoons Maldon or other sea salt
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Toss the nuts in a large bowl to combine and spread them out on a baking sheet. Toast in the oven until light golden brown, about 10 minutes.

In a large bowl, combine the rosemary, cayenne, sugar, salt and melted butter.

Thoroughly toss the toasted nuts in the spiced butter and serve warm. And once you eat these, you will never want to stop.

i found your crunch. there is a flax cracker recipe in the Personalized Living "O" cookbook that has been satisfying my crunch. Don't know if you have the "B" book but i bet there is a similar recipe in there.

When I want crunch I just toast a piece of rice bread and add a little berries-only jam. Delish. The toast would make a great topping too.

Nuts, rice cakes, and I just made a bach of amaranth chips - sort of like pita chips but a diamond carb for me.  I use rice brand oil, another diamond, in those.  Yes, they are labor intensive, but they are diamonds.  :)

toasting a brown rice tortilla in the toaster oven makes it just the right amount of Crunch!  spread some ghee or almond butter on it and yum!
