Trader Joe’s Lightly Salted Rice Cakes are by no means filling or anything substantial, but I do like them because they are low calories and a little something crunchy to munch on. Only 35 calories per rice cake and provides a airy, crunchy base for you to snack off of. They are lightly salted. Usually I add peanut butter and thinly sliced apples on top for a nice afternoon snack or when I am in the mood for something lighter, I use Greek yogurt instead of peanut butter. The rice cakes can hold you toppings while you take a bite into it, but I did notice they started to crumble on me after my first bite. I think it might be because I abused this bag a little too much when carrying it home in my grocery bag. Good thing I eat off of a plate or else it would be quite messy. One serving of 2 cakes (20g) is 70 calories, 1 WW, 0.5 gram of fat, no cholesterol, 80 milligram of sodium, 14 grams of carbohydrates, less than 1 gram of fiber, and 1 gram of protein. Ingredients: whole grain brown rice, sea salt. Two simple ingredients. How perfect is that. Love the no sugar part too. Some rice cakes on the market has fancy flavors like apple cinnamon, caramel drizzle, and stuff like that. I like my rice cakes much more simpler. The package is clear with blue writings all over. Inside you will find 2 separate plastic bags of 7 rice cakes each. Keeps the whole package from going stale on you.
