Ryvita Crackerbread – Review

Ryvita Crackerbread have released two new flavours to their crackerbread range, cheese and pepper.  Both are light, crisp and a mere 19 calories a piece – perfect for light snacks and anyone wanting to watch their weight.

ryvitaAs I’m often trying to watch my calorie intake, these are perfect to have at home for a savoury snack.  I loved the pepper flavour, not too strong but a definite burst of flavour, great with a slice of Edam on top.  I was a little worried about the cheese flavour initially as some artificially flavoured cheese products can be overbearing, but Ryvita have got it just right, not to strong with a hint of cheese.  These were great topped with a thin slice of cheese or spread with some red pepper houmous.

I’ve also been eating a lot of soup lately and found either flavour to be perfect to dip in as opposed to my preferred calorific option – a hunk of fresh bread!  Even if you have 3 or 4 you are still under 80 calories – a great low calorie option!

I enjoyed the Ryvita Crackerbread and would buy the flavoured options again.

Nothing But Snacks – Review

Nothing But. are a new, healthy snack that not only contains real vegetables but each pack contains 1 of your 5 a day portions of vegetables.  I was fortunate to receive a couple of packs of Beetroot & Parsnip and Mange Tout & Red Pepper flavours.

Nothing butI was really excited to try these for many reasons, I love vegetable snacks, I’m trying to follow a healthy eating plan and I’m vegetarian.   They are also suitable for vegans, are gluten free with no added fat, sugar, salt or preservatives.

These are literally freeze dried vegetables in a packet with just 26 calories a pack for the Mange Tout & Red Pepper snack and just 36 calories for the Slice Beetroot & Parsnip snack.  You can’t get better than that!

I was amazed by the bright, vibrant colours of the vegetables, they looked crunchy and inviting.  When you bite into them they are light as air, although the taste of the vegetable clearly comes through.

Nothing but snack 1I enjoyed these and think with them being one of your five a day and low calorie makes them ideal for healthy eating, although you have to bear in mind that they won’t be overly filling.  I also would have liked to have seen a few more in each bag than there was.

What I did discover though it that these make the perfect low fat accompaniment to houmous.  I had some red pepper houmous in the fridge and dipped the freeze dried vegetables into it – absolutely divine!!  It gave an added burst of flavour and for me is an ideal healthy, low calorie snack.

Nothing 3

Nothing But, for me, make a delicious snack with houmous and I’d definitely have this again.  They are also available in another flavour, Pea and Sweetcorn which would be interesting to try.
