A friend of mine during her first trimester of pregnancy asked me why no one sold a cracker that contained all the nutrients she needed since crackers were the only thing she could keep down. Here is that cracker! It provides protein, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals. These are actually dehydrated rather than baked to keep from destroying enzymes and nutrients. Feel free to substitute any grain, bean, nut, or seed you have on hand.
1/3 cup lentils
1/3 cup whole buckwheat groats
1/3 cup sunflower or pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup sesame seeds
1/4 cup flaxseeds
Place lentils, buckwheat, and seeds in a quart-size jar or bowl. Fill bowl with water (about 3 1/2 cups) and let soak overnight.
Preheat oven to 250
