i seem to remember there is a kind of cracker you can buy in a normal grocery store that are raw, anyone know what these are? or know of any?
I live in the country so im at least an hour away from a grocery store that sells anything considered specialty .. i know i can make my own & order some online, but im wondering if there is anything simple i can keep in the cupboards in case of emergency or lack of time for a quick go with salsa kind of chip/cracker..
thanks for helping a newbie out..

I don't know of any at a regular grocery store.
I have purchased raw chips from Whole Foods though.

i have travelled a lot in the raw across canada and us and found it rare to find raw crackers in grocery stores - your best bet is co-ops in health-conscious areas of big cities, and some whole foods are sprouting huge raw sections that include raw crackers, chips, cereals, snacks
i live in the country too so i know how you're feeling. the best way is to make big batches of crackers and keep those you aren't going to eat reasonably soon in the freezer to keep them fresh
hope this helps!
if we were in the same countryside together I'd say let's get together to make some, because it's always much more fun UNcooking with others : )
blessings to you,

Before going raw I used to eat a lot of "Mary's Gone Crackers". These have the same simple ingredients that would make a good raw cracker, but "Mary's" are definitely not raw.
Lydia's Organics make a variety of thick crackers that are available at some specialty grocery stores. I've bought them at the Grawnola Market and Whole Foods.
Slices of jicama are excellent for dipping up salsa. :)

My flax crackers are a staple in my raw dinner, worth the time it takes to make them. But I know what you mean, its like I refuse to grow wheat grass, I just buy boxes of grass from the farmers.

I make flax crackers, 2 batches at a time, and keep them ready to grab. I like a bland cracker and it goes with salads or pate etc. OMG!! the bags of flax crackers at Earth Fare are $7 a bag for about 10 crackers. Insane! You can make a 6 week supply for that.
Onion bread is easy to make and stores very well in the freezer. Goes great with walnut pate.
Yes you have to make them yourself but if you make multiple batches at a time they last for weeks and are ready to grab.
