Have you heard about these crackers? GG Unique Scandinavian Fiber Crispbread Crackers?
These GG crackers are quite the craze these days or maybe I’m just behind the times. Either way I’m loving on these crackers.
If you’re like me and always trying to incorporate Fiber into your diet then these little crispbreads are for you. They’re loaded with high amount of fiber, a low net carb and only 20 calories per cracker.
If you’re unsure what’s a net carb, here is the breakdown. Net carbs are the grams of total carbohydrate minus the grams of fiber. Total Carb – Fiber = Net Carbs.
One GG cracker is 6 grams of carbohydrate with 4 grams of fiber so the net carb is 2 grams. That means only 2g of net carbs are digested into the body and utilized for energy or stored as fat. GG crackers are perfect if you’re tracking your carb intake and trying to keep it on the low-end.
I’ve been eating four crackers with lunch and four with dinner and my sweet tooth craving after each meal has declined tremendously. The high fiber definitely keeps you full in between meals as the package states “the appetite control cracker”!
I also bring the GG crackers everywhere I go. In fact, the other night my boyfriend and I ordered a cheese plate at our local wine bar and instead of eating the bread and crackers they provided, I swapped them out with the GG crackers. Or if you really want that burger but not too keen on the bun… order without the bun and break out the GG crackers. I do it all the time.
But I must be honest…. GG crackers are a bit bland but you can spice them up with just about anything. There are so many options. Below are just a few.
- Smoked Salmon, Nut Cheese and Arugula
- Prosciutto/Salami and Cheese
- Almond Butter and Berries
- Tomato Sauce and Mozzarella Cheese (toasted)
- Butter (the good kind not the fake margarine stuff) I prefer Kerry Gold Irish Butter
The options are endless. Get creative!
There are also two other flavors that I’ve tried… GG Thins with Pumpkin Seeds and GG Sweet Thins with Honey and Raisin. Both are great tasting, but the fiber per serving is slightly lower so I tend to stick to the plain GG cracker.
If you decide to give them a try, please report back and let me know what you think.
