I am enjoying the image of Daniel breaking apart oyster crackers, putting a bean inside to make a sandwich!  I'll try that the next time I am with my great-grandchildren. 

Theme of the day Daniel!

Spud, I tried every key-word I could think of at Mother Earth News and could find nothing that fit your description. I ran across an interesting fellow, Michael Reynolds, that may have some ideas for you.

Randall, senior's SNYDER'S OF HANOVER, and they do make at least one gluten-free product, and an unsalted mini-pretzel, but no combination of the two.

There's one product on their web site called Pretzel Spoonz...for dipping.  I must find out where I can buy a bag!..Melt some cheese and....

Deep fried pork rinds.  Yum, yum, yummy!

Randall, I think that Hanover makes a salt-free pretzel.  It's been so many years since I even thought about buying pretzels, that I don't really remember who makes what.

This will probably make most people gag, but one of my favorite flour-free snacks is/are(?) deep fried pork rinds.  OR (when I can find a place that makes this) freshly deep fried chicharones (aka cracklins)...still warm from the fryer.  Oh, my!  No carbs, and most of the fat melts out in the cooking process.  Smoky decadence. 

(And I do NOT believe the "fat police" anymore...if I ever did!  The damfools have led everyone astray for over 100 years.  "Repeat a lie often enough..." etc, and so on.)

Randall, I wouldn't skip the crackers - depending on the type of crackers. Whole wheat, multi grain, rye, etc. should be fine. I take my blood a few times a day, and as long as I lay off the stuff made from mostly white refined flour, things are fine. Personal opinion, but I don't think 4 multi grain crackers are going to hurt anyone.

Joan, I love the idea of a quonset hut home! But then I'd also live in a yurt given the chance...

Eat the toppings without the crackers, Randall. The less wheat products you eat, the easier it is to stay on a healthy diet.

Comment by Randall Smith on April 2, 2014 at 8:55am

Here I am trying to cut back on my salt intake AND wheat products (gluten), but reading all your comments to tempt me. I love pretzels, too, but have difficulty in finding salt free ones. My lunch usually includes 4 crackers with either humus, sardines, or peanut butter on top. I rationalize that the toppings are good for me, counterbalancing the negative effects of the cracker. How sad, huh!

Thanks for that articles Joan.  I used to subscribe to Mother Earth News and read an article about a man that built a clear double-dome house somewhere in Utah.

It was an underground house with a small dome that let light in a 10 foot hole in the center of the house.  It had a large dome over that, with trees and plants in between.  He said it let in more light than most houses, he could see the mountains from his bedroom, and his heating bill was almost zero.

I was very impressed and would seriously consider it if I had the money.
