Although I have been completely gluten-free since the New Year (and I am loving it), I still stand by GG Bran Crispbread. These crackers are 12 calories per slice and each contain 5 grams of fiber! Even though they taste like cardboard alone, with tasty toppings these crackers can actually be transformed into a fantastic afternoon snack that keeps you filled for a couple hours. If you are looking to cut a few pounds, these crackers are the best way to do it. And they only contain four ingredients, which means they are (relatively) unprocessed ad all-natural.
I first discovered these crackers when I was working at the New Yor Post. The Post ran a story featuring the women who made these crackers into a diet and these crackers were their secret to looking good. Since they were attractive, I decided to give them a try to see if they actualy work. I can confidently say that I was full after eating these and they are certainly a natural laxative!
However, you MUST have a topping on these crackers; I recommend sunbutter and jelly, pizza sauce and cheese and/or cream cheese and smoked salmon. Despite the bland and dry taste, I still recommend eating these if you are looking to increase your fiber intake and drop a few pounds- relatively quickly and easily. They can be purchased at Whole Foods or any organic stores, so if you live in an urban area they are super easy to locate. If you live in the suburbs, I would recommend just buying them online.
Have you ever tried these? What do you think of them?
