A lot of people think rice cakes taste like cardboard and they aren’t wrong. They have a bland dry taste but a fantastic crunch. If you add the right toppings rice cakes can become a fabulous snack or dessert that tastes nothing like cardboard.
I added a weight watchers jalepeno cheese wedge, sliced tomato, garlic poweder, cracked black pepper, and Italian seasoning to this rice cake! It was delicious!
Another great way to eat this bland crunchy snack is by adding refried beans, avacado or guac and chipotle hot sauce!!
Also I’m sure if u put Nutella on this it would taste amazing. Nutella is the answer to all of life’s questions.
Think outside the box with rice cakes! The possibilities are endless!
I was going to go to starbucks today for an iced chai but then I remembered my pants are tight and I am trying to watch my calories. So instead I went to the grocery store and picked up light soymilk and sugar free chai latte. I do about half chai 1/2 soymilk…it’s delicious.
For lunch today I made a vegetarian taco salad, but I call it skinny loaded nachos for more mental appeal! Oh and in case you are in the dark like I was…Bolthouse Farms has created the GREATEST low cal, yogurt based, creamy salad dressings! I used the salsa ranch one today! I have tried the cesar parmesian one and it is fabulous as well!! They are a little pricy, I paid $3.98 at Walmart & BigY, but in my opinion they’re worth it! They’re in the refrigerated salad section not the regular dressing isle at the grocery store.
For this salad:
8 blue corn tortilla chips
6 cherry tomatoes halved
1/4 reduced fat mexican blend cheese
1tbsp chopped red onion
1tbsp chopped jalepeno
1/4 cup black beans (rinsed and drained)
1-2 cups lettuce any kind
2tbsp Bolthouse Farms salsa ranch dressing
1. Chips on plate in even layer
2. Add half of the cheese to the chips microwave 30 seconds
3. Layer/ add other toppings
4. Add dressing and enjoy
**you can add ground chicken or lean ground beef
**you can use anything you want…add hot sauce, salsa, gauc (just be Mindful of how much especially if you’re watching calories), more veggies, there are no rules!
Don’t judge. This was not one night it was two. I love tasting new tastes…I love chocolate and fruit if u couldn’t tell. These were all delicious in my opinion. So if u don’t like them that’s your opinion and since this is my blog I am not going to post your opinion lol. But if u have tried any of these and want to share your thoughts I would love to hear them!
