Two weeks ago, on our trip to the coast, we stopped at Whole Foods on our way through Portland. There's not a Whole Foods store in Spokane (our local "big city"), so I wanted to see what they might have in the way of crackers or snacks that fit in with the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle.
My favorite find was a container of Parmesan Crisps. Lyle wasn't sure he would like them, but I was pretty sure I would. They were pretty spendy at $6.00 for a 3.5-ounce package, but I went ahead and got them. We tried them as soon as we got back in the car. I love them because they are crisp and salty like a chip, but high protein instead of carbs. And they have a very rich flavor so I usually only want 1 or 2 at a time. It turned out that Lyle likes them, too, but we didn't go back and get more because they were so expensive.
Guess what? I figured out how to make them myself!
This may be the easiest "recipe" ever... and they taste just like the ones we bought. I promise.
- Put a square of parchment paper on a plate.
- Make four little piles of parmesan on the paper (about a tablespoonful in each pile).
- Microwave on high for 1 minute.
- Let cool.
And a huge savings!
This container that cost $6.00? I was able to refill it with the same amount of product for 80 cents.
I should go into business.
