Looking for a healthy snack alternative for your diet?
I have an exciting new giveaway for you! If you’ve read my post about eating anti-inflammatory foods or eating clean on the elimination diet, this post will be beneficial in giving you snack ideas to incorporate in your diet!
CLICK HERE TO ENTER THE GIVEAWAY
Mary’s Gone Crackers kindly sent me these products to try – but you may be interested to know that when I was going through my own elimination and anti-inflammatory diet, I found very few foods that I was able to eat. Mary’s Crackers was one of the few foods that I could ingest – thanks to their clean ingredients. 🙂
I want to introduce to you their line of healthy snack alternatives you can try, because I’m a sucker for their ingredients 🙂 As a nutritionist, you can expect that I’ll always read labels for everything that I buy. There’s very few snacks that I can find that have super clean ingredients, or have ingredients that aren’t filled with sugar. In fact, during my flare ups, I struggled to find snacks for eczema.
Of course, some of their products do have sugar (like their double chocolate chips, mmmm) – but their super seed crackers don’t have any! Without further ado, keep reading below for more info.
(Plus – make sure to enter the giveaway, below!).
Mary’s Gone Crackers: Super Seed Crackers
What I love about this product is that it’s a traditional gluten free cracker recipe made from organic, wheat free, whole grain brown rice, quinoa, flax seeds, and sesame seeds (it’s also SOY free), so you can enjoy the cleanest, most wholesome ingredients that are available 🙂
Check out the label below – it’s gluten free, dairy free, wheat free, soy free, nut free, vegan, and non-gmo! I don’t think it can get any better than this 😉 It’ s a perfect snack for eczema!
If you’ve never tried them before, these crackers are thin and crispy. Made with sunflower, pumpkin and poppy seeds, these crackers are healthy snacks for eczema that can be eaten on its own, or with a side of guacamole or chili.
If you’re not acquired to the taste of “healthy” foods or snacks, then I would probably recommend that you stick to the original crackers instead, as they may satisfy your taste buds more 🙂
Compared to potato chips, they’re inflammatory, laden with rancid oils, deep fried, and can also make your eczema flare up. Mary’s Gone Crackers is a socially conscious company that wants to help those with allergies/dietary restrictions to bring back some pleasure into their lives through the things that they miss the most.
If you’re interested in some of their other products, they also have a Sea Salt flavoured Sticks & Twigs product (I personally found this product salty but others may beg to differ) and a Double Chocolate cookie below as well.
Mary’s Gone Crackers love Cookies are available in four flavors: Chocolate Chips, “N’Oatmeal” Raisin, Double Chocolate, and Ginger Snaps.
(Pssst – you can also try all 4 of their cookies and buy it on this link here).
I didn’t find the Double Chocolate cookie spectacular, but it wasn’t bad either. I did start getting more hooked on them after eating them for a while though!
(Note: I ate their crackers while I was eating an anti-inflammatory diet, and not their cookies or pretzels that I’ve featured here).
The entire Mary’s Gone Crackers’ line is made in USA – and I love how they’re dedicated to being made in an organic, gluten free, vegan, nut free, dairy free, kosher facility to ensure there is no cross-contamination. 🙂
They also test ingredients and finished products to make sure that they’re not contaminated. The products also go through strict criteria; for example, their ingredients always have to come up to ‘less than 10 ppm,’ which means no detectable gluten.

Wow never could find a snack i could eat because I’m allergic to everything! I’ve been on your page for the last 2 weeks and I am totally inspired and willing to do the elimination diet after 25 years of eczema and steroids! Hope to win so i can add more food to my diet and keep my appetite going for healthy foods. =)
Awww, thanks so much for your kind words, Darlene! I’m glad my site was able to inspire you. I know that being on steroids for so long is definitely not fun 🙁 Hopefully the diet change will be able to help your eczema 🙂
It definitely isn’t fun! When I was about 15, I was prescribed oral Prednisolone and was taking it for 2 years straight! Side effect was vision loss. My left eye became filled with blood and when I had surgery to replace the vitreous, my retina fell! Laser reattached it but it didn’t do any good because it was too late. I am now blind in that eye. Thankfully, I still have my right eye, right?? 🙂
Oh no so sorry to hear that! You’re still so positive about it though – which is incredible! 😉 I imagine that the Prednisolone was for your eczema?
Yes, the flare ups were pretty bad. My face, neck, wrists, behind the knees, elbows (inner and outer), belly, ears, and hairline were all inflamed and/or flaky. I had my surgery during my last year in high school and was borderline unable to graduate with my class. But luckily, i kept my grades up regardless of the eczema so when i was absent during my healing process my grades didn’t drop much, and I was able to graduate. After high school I went to Vietnam with my mom to get treatment for 3 months. I was on the bitter Chinese medicine for the whole time I was there. I believe it helped me flush out all the toxins (through #1 and #2 rather than out the skin, which i thought was amazing since i’ve had bad experiences with it before when taking it in California) and it kept my appetite going really well! But now that I think about it, it must have been the combination of that, FRESH food, not processed junk food/drinks, and the humidity. My diet consisted mainly of rice, pork, fish, veggies, fruits, and LOTS of water because it was so hot over there. No bread, no soda, no candy, no chips. And when I came back to the US, it wasn’t until maybe 5 years later that my eczema came back in the usual spots, and I strongly believe it is because of my diet. And I’m ready to change that because not only did my eczema return, but my 2 year old son has it too and it kills me to see him suffer because I passed it to him. Thanks for replying so quickly, Abby! It finally feels relieving and really good to see someone be cured from eczema when doctors said there was no cure! I have hope!
Oh wow, I’m glad that you did find healing in Vietnam though. nd yes, I truly believe that there is a cure and you will reach it! 😉 Hope your son improves too! Diet (plus many other factors, of course) is key. 🙂

I want my kids to eat healthier and if I have to trick them by giving them something yummy, that is what I will do.
