Wasa Light Rye Crackers
There are times that you want a 'base' on which to put your salmon, cheese, or veggies. Wasa light rye crackers are healthy and have 3g fiber per serving.
I primarily got the Wasa crackers because I had run out of low carb nacho options. Somehow EVERY single low carb nacho that I enjoyed had gone out of business!! In desperation I turned to these Wasa crackers. For every 2 large crackers - which you can break into 2-3 nacho sized pieces - you get 3g of fiber and 11g net carbs. Now, I realize that 11g is large for a person in induction - but for people on regular low carb dieting, 11g is perfect for a lunch snack.
I use these primarily for Nacho creation. I put on some low carb salsa, drizzle on some Mexican cheese blend, and voila! I have a very delicious low carb snack that is filling and meets my cravings. I dip it in sour cream and have a blast. You could of course add on black olives or whatever else pleases you.
If you're a salmon lover (as I certainly am!) you can also go for smoked salmon and the white cream sauce with capers on this, that also works quite nicely.
As far as I'm concerned, if you're going to have carbs in your diet, they should be HEALTHY carbs. If your option is to get in 11g in a sugar-free ice cream that gives you no benefit at all, or 11g in a very yummy, healthy snack that provides great fiber and zero fat / cholesterol, I would definitely go this way. You even get 2g of protein here. The sodium is at 70mg, i.e. 3% of your daily intake.
Induction Note: If you're still at the point where 11g is too much for you, try using cucumber slices for crackers. You can put cheese on cucumber slices and it is VERY tasty.
