Hi All, Does any one snack on cackers? Wheat thins or triscits? Any good substites?

Aside from toast, any good wheaty crunches?

Not on Phase I. I put LF cheese on cucumber rounds or celery. In Phase II, you can indulge in whole wheat carbs.

I don't know if you would think this is too much like toast, but I like to cut a WW pita into triangles and bake until crispy. Sometimes I brush it with Newman's vinegar & oil dressing before I bake it. Yummy!

Even Phase II is pretty slim on crackers, etc. DH really missed them and went to the WASA brand-found in bigger stores with specialty crackers-he said they were better than nothing if that's any testimony!:lol: If you need crunch try the small celery pieces with either Laughing Cow Cheese or Natural Peanut Butter! Most crackers have flour or the dreaded trans fats!
