Eating Rice Cakes

Rice cakes are a popular diet food. They are usually fat free and low in sugar and calories which is what makes them an attractive snack choice. The size of the cake differs by brand and some have added sugar or sweet (like chocolate) which in turn impacts the number of calories and sugar.

Rice cakes can fit into a diet program especially if taken with some lean protein sources and spreads. They can be taken as a substitute for bread and crackers. You can build your own sandwich with rice cakes using toppings to help keep you fuller longer. Be creative with what you add on your rice cake.

Try these toppings:

  • Peanut butter with banana and honey / coconut nectar
  • Homemade pesto with tomatoes slices
  • Smashed avocado with lemon juice and pepper
  • Fresh salad
  • Cottage cheese / vegan cheese spread with berries
  • Almond butter and fresh peach slices
  • Jam and fresh berries
