Daily Food Quick Tip: Rye Crackers
Sometimes referred to as crispbread or flatbread, most rye cracker brands only contain two ingredients – whole grain rye flour and salt. By replacing one unhealthy snack per day with a serving of rye crackers, you will not only reduce the amount of fat,calories and preservatives you consume each day, but you will also be adding a wholesome source of dietary fibre and protein into your diet. Beware of processed foods masquerading as wholesome rye crackers, the fewer ingredients on the side of the box (and the easier they are to pronounce) the better. If you are still worried about purchasing a certain brand of rye cracker, why not try making them by yourself or with the help of your family. By preparing the foods from start to finish, you can ensure that only the healthiest ingredients are used.
