I’ve decided to start writing about some of the products I like. I’m always interested to know what others have tried and liked, so I thought I’d share some of my own experiences.
To start, I’m going to tell you about one of my new favorite snacks: Suzie’s Whole Grain Thin Cakes. Sometimes you just need a crunchy snack or something cracker-like to put toppings on. But most crackers aren’t gluten free or they’re loaded with questionable ingredients or doused in oil.
I’ve tried two varieties of these simple snack cakes: lightly salted brown rice and lightly salted corn. I like both. Because they’re so thin, they work great for adding toppings and they’re not nearly as cumbersome as traditional rice cakes. You can have one or two and your snack craving is obliterated! I especially like mine with almond butter. Yum!
Here’s the skinny:
The lightly salted brown rice is made with whole grain brown rice and sea salt. Calories: 54, Fat: 0, Cholesterol: 0, Sodium: 30mg, Total Carbs: 12g, Fiber: 1g, Sugars: 0, Protein: 1g
The lightly salted corn is made with corn and sea salt. Calories: 38, Fat: 0, Cholesterol: 0, Sodium: 11mg, Total Carbs: 8g, Fiber: 1g, Sugars: 0, Protein: 1.5g
Not too shabby, huh? And the amounts listed are for one serving, which is three cakes! As far as taste goes, I slightly prefer the corn. It’s not even that bad plain.
I wouldn’t suggest gorging on these because they are, after all, still corn and rice. So even though they may be in a healthier form, I believe grains and starches are something that should be limited. But when you need a quick pick me up, these work great.
I found these at my local health food store, but I did a quick search and there are lots of places to buy them online…other varieties, too. I might have to check into that.
So here’s how I like to eat them when I’m being a bit naughty…yes, those are chocolate chips. Better than a candy bar, right?
By the way, when I share a product like this, it’s simply my own opinion. I have not been asked nor am I being compensated for reviewing anything.
