Wasa Crackers = Whole Grain Goodness

The Swedes have been enjoying Wasa crispbread crackers for years, and now I think you should give them a try. I've enjoyed using them as a vehicle for soft cheeses since I worked at a German restaurant in high school. Can't say I was health conscious back then, I just love the rye taste (and probably thought I was all "Euro").

One slice of this crispbread is 35 calories with 0.2 grams of fat (about 1 calorie), plus 1.5 gram of dietary fiber. The amount of sugar is negligible.

That might sound all fine and dandy, but compared to a 100 calorie pack of Wheat Thins you start to see Wasa in a whole new light. Remember, 3 pieces of Wasa would be just over 100 calories. 100 calorie package of Wheat Thins has: 3 grams of fat (that's 27 calories), 1 gram of fiber, and 3 grams of sugar. For me Wasa wins hands down - 3 crackers would have 4.5 grams of fiber. To see if you know how many grams of fiber you should be eating each day take this quiz.

Wasa comes in a variety of flavors like: Hearty Rye, Whole Grain, and Toasted Whole Wheat. Look for it at your local grocery store. Good news for folks following Bob Greene's Best of Life Diet, these crackers are part of Stage II.

I'm always on the lookout for yummy whole grain foods, but I've never seen these crackers in my grocery store. I'm glad to see they can be bought online, and I can't wait to try them.

My mother used to buy these and of course, I rebelled. But now I like their crispiness and the rye flavor.
