Expert Tips

“This is a great way to eat more fish. Salmon has all those great Omega-3’s! The fat-free cream cheese keeps calories and fat low. I eat organic whole-grain crackers with this super-easy spread, a delicious combination.” Lori S.

Many packaged crackers are loaded with fat. If you want to see how much fat a cracker has but don't have access to the box, rub it with a paper napkin. Crackers that leave grease marks are probably high in fat, so you may want to substitute lower-fat ones or eat the higher-fat ones in small amounts.
