CULINARY THRILL SEEKING - Still resolved to keep well fed and fit in 2021

When seedy is good.
Top Seedz could be the best cracker I've ever eaten. Dense with seeds, they're baked in a sheet so we get the 'cracked' pieces.
No sleeves of uniformity here. Each bite is a treasure, just like the sporty New Zealand Mum who conceived of them imagined. There's a sea salt version, another with cumin and more options.
One of the things that makes them memorable is that different seeds create a pattern resembling an edible mosaic. Artsy huh? They're crunchy, gourmet, on the healthy side and delish.
The 6-Seed version could be my favorite weighing in with sunflower, sesame, flax, pumpkin, chia and hemp. I had them as a birthday treat with wine and I believe I could feel their health benefits with each crisp bite.
I had to say "mmmm" after each sample and I kept holding them up to the light to enjoy the seedy designs. Rosemary with sunflower, sesame, flax and pumpkin was a top pick.
Top Seedz does just seeds too, but they're "just" roasted with Mpale Magic to give a sweet and nutty crunch. There's more for your lunch, yoghurt topping snacks, etc. at topseedz.com
