Why do Crackers Help Morning Sickness?

Foods high in starch — such as saltines, bread, and toast — help absorb gastric acid and settle a queasy stomach.

It’s also a good idea to keep a handful of crackers on your nightstand; eating a few before you get out of bed may help ease nausea in the morning.

 

 

It’s football season and for Cade and I that means we bounce back and forth between BYU and the South Carolina Gamecocks. We tend to watch SC the most and the whole family gets excited to get in our shirts and relax with a good game.

 

But it’s never just about football in our house. The snacks are just as important. I mean, I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that some games I don’t even care about as much as the food depending on who is playing. Hello churro chex mix, artichoke dip, and fruit salsa. Now that’s a good day in my house!

These bacon belts are definitely being added to our game day snacks list! You’ll want to remember a few things though…

 

*Thin bacon my friends. Thin bacon. I love a thick slice of bacon but in this case it’s going to give off too much grease and you’ll have a nasty cracker.

 

Can bacon Be Healthy?

The concern that bacon will ruin good health is a myth.

Bacon has healthy nutrients that make it a useful part of a healthy diet.

Bacon contains thiamin, vitamin B12, zinc and selenium, which are all vital nutrients the body does not naturally produce.

 

 

*Low and slow. Don’t try to cook these as fast as you normally would for bacon. The crackers will burn if you don’t go slow and low and the bacon needs time to render out that fat and get all delicious.

 

*After baking head straight to a paper towel to absorb any extra grease.

 

*We choose chili powder because I’m a wimp and we have kids, but cayenne would work great.
