ANY type of chip or cracker that doesn't conflict?! Looking for suggestions!

Bean, almond, flax... plywood... WHATEVER! I'd be happy to purchase it online if that's the case. (Not so into the idea of having to cook something for this purpose, as it'll likely never happen.)

Would be a HUGE help to me- thanks a lot!

Go get a bunch of kale that is already in pieces. Put it on a cookie sheet lined with foil, drizzle olive oil on it...salt and pepper...bake at about 400 degrees? for about 15 minutes. Kale Chips! :)

The kale chips are great. But I believe papadums might be even closer to what you are looking for - crackers made with lentil flour. Check the ingredients, because some also have rice or potato flour and you should avoid those - but the lentil, chickpea, or black gram kind should be fine.

When you buy them, they'll be about the thickness of a corn tortilla, but smaller. Traditionally once you buy them and get them home you fry them in oil - but lots of people also pop them in the microwave dry until they bubble, which is how I prefer them.

    Hmm I have these pappadums....I will try the minute in the microwave. :)

    I normally do two at a time, and use 30 seconds - you just have to watch them and as soon as the whole thing is bubbly, take it out so it doesn't burn. It's the coolest thing to watch.

    Thanks a lot Jake- they look just like what I might be looking for!

    Any recommendations on where to buy them?

I love, love kale chips! Since they are made with cashews you still have to be careful not to munch the whole bag in a sitting. Also be sure to check labels since not all flavors are going to work on slow carb - I've noticed they'll sometimes sneak agave or such in them.

My favorites are the Quite Cheesy flavor from Alive & Radiant - they're vegan and raw too. The cheese flavor is nutritional yeast. They sell them at Whole Foods too.
