As the body undergoes a number of physical changes during menopause, it is now known that there are certain foods that are better for us in midlife and beyond. This includes many of the ingredients in these delicious Danish crackers.
For example, rolled oats are known to help reduce cholesterol due to the beta-glucans in them, and did you know that pumpkin seeds contain phyto-oestrogens (plant-based oestrogens) and pumpkin-seed oil is increasingly recognised as helping to increase the ‘good’ high density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol concentrations, which in turn helps reduce our risk of heart disease. (Gossell-Williams, 2007)
But perhaps the best thing about having these crackers in your pantry, is that when you are too busy to cook, or you want a healthy snack on the run, then you can grab them and stack them with your favourite toppings.
