Are you a snacker? I tend not to be one. Instead I prefer to make sure I feel sated with my meals so I don’t have to snack in between them. Though I try it isn’t always easy to accomplish. Those days of course I end up reaching for a snack. When I reach for a snack I try my hardest (though it doesn’t always happen) to make healthy and nutritious choices. One of my favorite foods to reach for are these Scandinavian crisp breads.
Have you ever tried them? My husband introduced me to them and the first impression was not good. In fact he called them cardboard bread even though he likes them. The bread is hard, dry and resembles a cracker of sorts. But at the same time it does resembles cardboard. Don’t let the look fool you because they really grow on you. They are a little salty, dry, crumbly and taste like whole grain crumbly bread. Really, so simple and yet so good.
Mostly they are made with rye flour, salt and water. Though there are several other varieties too. The calorie count is quite low but they are still nutritious due to the rye or whole grains used. I love that I can eat it like or instead of toast with sweet or savory toppings. Perhaps my favorite way of eating crisp bread is with a smearing of soft cheese and a slice of cucumber or tomatoes. The cheese isn’t low in calories but we balance it out with healthy bread and fruit or vegetable.
I’d love to hear what your favorite healthy snack is?
Happy Sunday! Have a great week and I’ll be back Tuesday with a new recipe.
