Simple Flax Cracker Recipe


You will mix together equal portions of sweet onions mash and separately ground flax seeds.  Salt to taste. Spread on baking sheet with parchment paper and dry in over for a couple of hours on very low heat.

You will need:

One or more flat baking sheets to go in the oven

Parchment paper from grocery store for easiest removal and clean up.


A blender or food processor to blend onions to a mash

Sweet onions, or your favorite kind of onion

Flax seeds, brown or golden, ground


Turn on oven to lowest setting about 160 degrees F

Grind about 2 cups of onions to a mash in food processor or a Vitamix (or other blender that can handle that).

Use an equal amount of ground flax seed, or grind it fresh in a clean coffee grinder or in the NutriBullet with seed grinder blade attachment.

Optional – Add a little Celtic Sea salt to taste

Mix together well. Liquid of onions will be partially absorbed by the flax seeds to make a smooth spreading mash.

Spread evenly on parchment paper on the baking sheet with a spatula about an eighth of an inch thick, or up to at most a quarter of an inch for best drying.

Place in over on low heat and dry out slowly for about four hours (time will depend on how thickly you spread the mash).  Flip after half the time. You can make some cross cut indentations in the spread for breaking easily into smaller size crackers.

Check on the progress. Mash should dry into crispy crackers that break easily.

Remove from oven and let cool. Enjoy with soup or salad!

Feel Good Summer Smoothie Recipes

Cool off with these nutritious and delicious summertime smoothie recipes. Use our favorite supplements to sneak in to these shakes for an extra shot of energy and wellness!

Smoothies are a delicious and quick-and-easy way to make sure you’re getting the vitamins and minerals you need to keep you going through this season’s long hot days and nights.  We love how easy it is to sneak in a little extra nutrition into a smoothie for an extra energy boost without skimping on taste.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite smoothie recipes to keep you cool this summer. We think you’ll find they taste great and put some pep in your step too. We also wanted to share some of our favorite supplements that we think are best when blended into these healthy treats.

Vital Nutrition Plus is a super energizing and alkalizing super food mix of Spirulina, Chlorella, Nettle, Alfalfa, Barley Grass, Purple Dulse leaf, Orange Peel, Rose Hips, Spinach Leaf, Wheat Grass, and Beet Root in a base of non-active Nutritional Yeast.

Our absolute favorite thing to add to shakes and smoothies is Vital Nutrition Plus. Energizing and alkalizing, this green powder is chock full of super foods, natural whole food vitamins, minerals, adaptogens, and more. It’s great in a breakfast smoothie for some get- up-and- go, or as a kick start for an afternoon slump.  Since it’s unsweetened, it balances the sweetness of a fruit smoothie or a glass of pineapple or pomegranate juice well. It also complements and blends into a vegetable based smoothie too. Try it in our Tropical Green Smoothie!

Try it in our Tropical Green Smoothie!

This vegan-friendly powder blends easily into shakes and is free of fillers, sweeteners, and caffeine.  Made without any heavy protein powders, it’s easy to digest and won’t gunk up your system.  We also love that it’s made right here in the USA.

Our Organic Acerola Cherry Powder is a great match for this refreshing Strawberry Mint Smoothie.

Another supplement that’s big in our smoothie rotation is our Organic Freeze-Dried Acerola Cherry Powder. The unsweetened, natural cherry flavor makes smoothies taste even more rich and delicious.

Raw, unpasteurized honey is another ingredient we also like to use in shakes, for health, not just taste.

Our exceptional Raw Honey satisfies a sweet tooth and provides energy and a slew of good-for-you ingredients like naturally occurring enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, minerals, and naturally occurring probiotic ingredient.

Switch up your smoothie routine with this Chai Smoothie!

Our Raw Honey with Ginger provides a distinctive sweet and spicy flavor combination that we love it in this
Chai Smoothie.

With a stronger than expected content of  ginger,  this honey can help soothe an upset stomach, support the immune and circulatory systems, and help with weight loss by revving up the metabolism.

For a great-tasting energy boost our Royal Jelly Complex provides a sweet shot of raw honey with Royal Jelly, Bee Pollen, Propolis, and American Ginseng.  Loaded with B vitamins and amino acids, Royal Jelly is great for energy uplift and improving mental focus. It’s perfect for a pre or post-workout drink as it helps reduce muscle fatigue. Bee Pollen contains over 250 biological substances, including protein, carbs, fats, vitamins, minerals, enzymes and antioxidants. Propolis can also support immune health and the body’s healing process.

The American Ginseng in Royal Jelly Complex can help increase and sustain energy, improve cognitive function, and helps relieve the effects of stress. It also supports immune health, and promotes the body’s ability to maintain healthy cholesterol levels.

We love adding Royal Jelly Complex to this Peanut Butter and Jelly Post-Workout Smoothie .

For a natural protein boost in our smoothies and bowls we try to steer clear of highly processed protein powders that often contain chemicals, fillers, and/or are sprayed with pesticides. These powders are often made in China to boot.

We prefer wholesome natural protein sources in our smoothies like spirulina and chlorella in Vital Nutrition Plus, organic dairy and plant based yogurts,  and nut and seed butters.

Pumpkin Seed Butter is high in zinc, iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, potassium, Vitamins K and B, amino acids, and more.  Brazil Nut Butter is a rich source in selenium, magnesium, and thiamin.

Pumpkin Seed Butter and Brazil Nut Butter offer a ton of minerals and nutrients not found in more traditional nut butters. Give them a try in this Nutty Pineapple Smoothie!

While we love almond and peanut butter, our Pumpkin Seed Butter and Brazil Nut Butter offer a rich amount of vitamins and minerals not found in more traditionally used butters and they’re a great addition to smoothies like this Nutty Pineapple Smoothie.
