Ryvita is a rye based cracker perfect for people wanting a low calorie lunch or snack and can be used as a board for a lot of ingredients.
Ryvita was until very recently a British company making the crackers since 1930, they are made of rye and virtually nothing else, they are associated with people wanting to lose weight as they have only 32 calories per cracker.
Why do I like them?
I've been on the slimming world diet for about 4 years, and on that diet 3 ryvita cracker make up a healthy B. You are allowed 2 healthy B's per day as a means of adding roughage to your diet. I since the start of the diet used one of the B's as ryvita's for my lunchtime snack. I usually eat them with low fat cheese and sliced apple or grapes.
It would be fair to say I love them!!!
The crackers themselves are crisp, crunchy, and accompany cheese, fruit really well. I love all the various brands but my favourite is this muti-grain one, basically its the basic cracker but also has loads of seeds embedded in the cracker. This gives the eater a rather nice extra texture and crunch for every cracker they eat.
Every pack consists of around 20 crackers, they cost about 80p a pack but are often available on offer from supermarkets and as they don't go off quickly I often buy a dozen packs at a time.
So things I've found which go well with ryvita crackers.
1. Soft cheese as I've mentioned
2. Apples, grapes
3. Jam - really yumm and totally not on the diet
6. Sliced eggs
7. Oranges with cheese, oh yes it works well
Some people use ryvita as basis for really low fat desserts if they are soaked in various juices etc but for me they are a bit weird tasting as its a savoury snack in a sweet dessert.
Ryvita's are a great way to help those with a bit of a stomach to lose that stomach, they are low in fat, salt and accompany loads of things to nibble on when your hungry.
I'm so glad they are on the slimming worlds diet as they have kept me going for 4 years.
Summary: Crunchy and lovely healthy snack
