I found this brand of almond flour products on Amazon today. This company has a lot almond flour products, and are much lower in carbs and has some protein. I bought some snack crackers. I am excited to try them, they should be here tomorrow. Anybody else try something like this? Just exploring different options of things to keep in my office for when the afternoon munchies come around. I'm still presurgery and working on my life style changes.
I'll let you know how they taste.

They actually taste pretty good! I tried one of their cakes too, and it was really good! Looked like carrot cake but it was vanilla. Very yummy. Simple Mills is the brand if anyone is interested.
I try to avoid replacement foods. When looking at nutritional information, my rule of thumb is at least 1 gram of protein for every 10 calories. Looking at the Almond Flour crackers, the first type I checked have only 3 grams of protein for 150 calories. Definitely not enough bang for your buck.
It's also good to get out of a the snacking mentality - when afternoon munchies come around? Ignore them.
