GG Crackers

I get lots of questions from you guys about my GG fiber crackers. Some of you have a love/hate relationship with them, ha!  I know they can be hard to get used to, but give these Scandinavian crackers a chance to get your daily fiber in! I always pack my GG crackers with me when I am traveling.  It makes it so much easier to get in my daily fiber goal of 35 grams.  I have also been known to take them with me to Mexican restaurants to help keep me away from the chips on the table.  Chips and dip are my biggest downfall, so I'll do anything I can to keep myself away from them.

Here is the skinny on the GG’s:

I use them in place of bread, a wrap or chips. I don’t eat them by themselves. They give an extra crunch to my food to keep me fuller for longer. You can also use them as croutons for your salad, or as the breading on chicken. These crackers are also F-Factor approved, which is the lifestyle diet I live by.

Each cracker gives you 4 grams of fiber and only 2 net carbs. I always order the original, but I will say the Pumpkin Seed ones are a little tastier and easier eat on their own. Hey 

Some of my fave ways to "dress" a GG:

Tuna fish
Swiss cheese with turkey pepperoni (just like a pizza ;)
Deli meat with mustard 
Babybel cheese with everything but the bagel seasoning 
Dipped in salsa and hummus 
Cream Cheese + tomato
Peanut butter 
Smoked salmon + cream cheese + capers

Mother's Day Gift Guide

Shop these items in the links below!

Happy first official day of May! Spring is a busy time of year with school ending and endless activities so I'm here to help with all your Mother's Day gift ideas. Don't wait to order gifts for the special mother, grandmother, or wife because this holiday can easily sneak up on you (especially the husbands!). I personally don't want to receive an extravagant gift on this holiday from my hubby and boys. A little something (maybe with a hand-written note) goes a long way in my book. All of the items in this post are budget-friendly. The above items are all under $100!

Grateful to be a mom to my two love bugs!

Gift Ideas for the "Fashion is Everything" Mom

You can't go wrong with a cute "date night" top! This off the shoulder blouse comes in 5 different colors and is seriously flattering on every size. 

I'm seriously drooling over this hexagon shaped handle bag. Geometric mini bags are all the rage and this one is a steal at under $50!

Resin jewelry pieces are also having a big moment. These clear linked drop earrings are true stunners!

Gift Ideas for the "Cozy but Cute" Mom

This super soft luxe UGG robe would be on any mom's wishlist. The shorter length is perfect for spring/summer temps.

I have this rainbow print sweatshirt and seriously wear it every weekend! The print is fun + the comfort is even better. 

This printed short-sleeve pajama set is number #1 on my wish list! The prints are adorable with a beachy feel.

Gift Ideas for the "Sporty Spice" Mom

These high waist leggings always get top reviews for having sculpting abilities + a non-slip waistband.  They come in 4 different colors- my personal fave is the black sun bleach print!

Crystal posted about the metallic Nike's and I'm truly obsessed!  These are excellent for running or cross training.  Be sure to size up at least half a size.

This workout tank has a great loose silhouette that pairs perfectly with leggings.  It comes in 4 different colors.

Throwback pic to me and my sweet momma- gotta love the 80's!

Happy Mother's Day to all the wonderful moms out there!
