Gluten Free Primal Cheddar Crackers And A Feeling Of Relief

Hello Monday!
I lost more weight...and inches!
I could not feel better, physically or mentally.
It is an amazing feeling to have so much energy and not be a slave to food.
I just wish I could have learned how to live this way when I was in my twenties instead of my forties.
I won't look back...only forward. I can't change the past and get back all those years I hated myself for being so fat and out of control, I keep looking forward to a brighter healthier future.
I've still been a little worried about only eating once a day.
It feels so right, but convention and nutritionists say that it's wrong.
I would hate to be harming my body or metabolism eating this way, but man...I feel great!
So this weekend I took more time to read what other people had to say about this, were other people eating once a day and thriving or were they going crazy?
I found account after account of people who had been eating one healthy meal a day...for years.
They felt clearer headed, had more energy, slept like champs, and had lost all the weight they needed to or were holding their main weight rock steady.
Almost every single one was eating like I do...a meat, a bunch of veggies, a fat, a fruit, and complex carbs like sweet potatoes or such.
Relief! I was not the only one!
I do have to say that anyone who is eating a SAD (Standard American Diet) would have a hard time eating only once a day.
I know I never could have.
If I went so long as three hours without food I was a bear and my head hurt.
The sugars and the simple carbs are just as addicting in your body as a narcotic, they might kill you slower than heavy duty drugs, but kill you they will.
My kids on the other hand still eat three meals a day, plus some snacks!
This weekend my daughter requested something crunchy-salty to take to the Hunger Games Premiere last Thursday at midnight. I quickly made up a batch of my Primal Cheddar Crackers.
These taste amazing and really hit the spot for that crunchy-salty craving.

Primal Cheddar Crackers

  • 1/2 cup of coconut flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tablespoons of grass fed butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of organic cheddar cheese

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
Blend all ingredients together until they are well combined.

These never came together as a batter so I squish it into 3 same size balls.
Put one ball on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
Place another piece of parchment paper on top of mixture and use a rolling pin to thinly spread it out. Gently pull off the parchment paper.

Score with a pizza cutter into cracker shapes.
Bake crackers for 10+ minutes, but keep and eye on them as they go from brown to burnt quickly.
Take the crackers out of the oven and score them with a pizza cutter again as the cheese melts it all back together again.
Repeat with the two other balls.

We love these crackers and they come out consistently well every time.
I hope you try this recipe and enjoy it as much as we do!


  1. Nice post! I'm so glad to get to visit this site. Thank you for sharing this interesting and informative post. I'll be looking forward for your other posts as well. Keep it up! Flaxseed is low in carbs, making it a good choice to have in bread when you want to maintain a healthy lifestyle. So the next time you want bread for a sandwich or toast, try our healthy flaxseed bread

  2. I have made a couple of different homemade cheese cracker type recipes, but I'm never sure how to store them. I figure with cheese, they need to be refrigerated-but that makes them a little stale, and not as tasty anyway. I used the Food Saver on some, and wasn't impressed. Maybe they just need to be made in small batches and eaten right away? What do you think?

  3. I have always made them and then left them in an open container on the counter.
    If you cover them they get soft, so I just left it off!
    They never last long enough to really go bad...who can resist cheese and spices that crunch...not me!

  4. Do you think this would work for a thin and crispy pizza crust? Or with toppings would it get soft?
