I love crunchy snacks, and pretzels fall into that category! If you are going to choose pretzels as your choice of crunch snacks, here is a healthier choice than the typical pretzels we grew up on or much on at the neighborhood bar.

Choose this:

Spelt is similar to wheat in appearance. However, spelt has a tougher husk than wheat, which helps protect the nutrients in spelt. Spelt flour has a somewhat nutty and slightly sweeter flavor. Spelt flour contains more protein than wheat, and the protein in spelt is easier for our bodies to digest.
Some people who are allergic to wheat may be able to tolerate spelt however, Spelt has gluten, just like wheat, so spelt is not suitable for a gluten-free diet.

Do Not Choose This:

Starchy foods slow down your metabolism, especially enriched flour! When your body processes starchy foods, it burns very few calories.Enriched flour has been stripped of all nutritional parts and then the manufacturer adds back in a few vitamins required by law which is how it got it’s name, ‘Enriched Flour’.  The refining process removes nearly 100 vitamins from the whole wheat kernel, replacing them with synthetic, minute quantities of iron, calcium, B vitamins and vitamin D. Enriched flour is enriched just enough to make sure it doesn’t kill you too quickly with the obvious nutritional deficiencies that promote chronic disease and illness.
