Yeah, I was just thinking of them when I pulled my chicken and wild rice soup out of the crock pot..... mmmmmmmmmm crackers......... LOL..
I know some people love them, but for me the crackers aren't worth the cost, either in money or calorie count.
I can't get my head around how something with 60 calories and 12 g of carbs is a snack, especially when it is put up against 3 celery sticks, 17 cals and 4.1 g carbs, or SF Jelllo 10 calories, 0 carbs. Hey I was starving last night so I had 3 celery sticks, AND a pot of SF Jello..
Seriously, I bought them once and struggled to use them up, but each to their own. If I really need a snack, or a crouton type experience I prefer to use 1/2 a pack of cheese puffs, far tastier...
I buy the crackers once per monthly orderso have them occasionally. I like to crush them up and add to canned water packed albacore tuna or canned water packed Alaskan salmon. I add 1 T of egg beaters, some herbs. Then"fry" the tuna or salmon patties up in a pan with PAM..
Tasty! Just remember to weigh your tuna or salmon before you make the patty..
Also- the crushed crackers (either type) make an awesome coating for turkey cutlets. Same thingweigh out your turkey cutlet breast. Then dip in just a bit of eggbeaters. Then into the crushed crackers. Add some pepper and spicy Mrs. Dash.
You are allowed a bit of olive oilI generally eat some olives for my healthy fat-so often rely on the PAM for frying..
Good success in the program!..
The crackers are a " must have" for me with the chili. Not eating it otherwise.
Also if TOM is making you ravenous, a Laughing cow lite wedge on a package of crackers will do the trick! at least it does for me..
I like the veg crackers best..
For me it's simple math. I lose 1 to 1.5 less pounds in the weeks I eat the crackers. Everytime I've eaten the crackers I break 100 carbs for the day. I stay away from them now...
I love the crackers! It's the perfect pick-me-up if I'm feeling bored with my normal rotation of shakes/oatmeal/drinks..
Like reikime, I eat them with a wedge of lite Laughing Cow cheese..
It's definitely not a daily thing for me, because I will avoid having a snack unless I NEED one, and when I do, this is what I turn to. I've never noticed it slowing down my weight loss, but ymmv.
I've only had the multi-grain flavor (I didn't even know there was a garden veggie flavor!)...
I've only had the garden vegetable crackers and I thought they were good with the soup every now and again and was thinking about grinding them and using it for a coating on chicken one night....
I keep them on hand for recipes! I used it in my stuffing for Thanksgiving, and Cauliflower Latkes for Hanukkah..
I want to make spinach balls and will use it in there. Guess I use them as breadcrumbs to make some favorite foods! I am thinking meatballs!..
I don't do snacks since I'm a slow loser, sorry. I've read some great ideas for using them in the recipe section, though, that has me thinking I should get a box just to have for some Medifast recipe fun...
