I like reduced fat Triscuits. When I was first starting out on Spark, I didn't like whole wheat bread and figured some kind of crackers would be better. I bought a package of (I think it was) whole grain or multi-grain Wasa. omg. Not quite bad enough to justify throwing them away, but they were not good either. I'd eat one or two every day, and by the time I got through the entire package, whole wheat bread tasted FABULOUS.

If you like Triscuits, I'd say they're a good choice.

I second the recommendation for Wasa crackers. I buy the high fibre one, not sure if they sell it in the States though.

Also, Ak-Mak crackers are good and low calorie. I used to find them at Trader Joe's.

Thirdly, there are rye crisps called Finn Crisps which are high in fiber and fairly low calorie. I've found them in the international aisle in some US supermarkets (i.e. Kroger.) (They are widely available in the UK.) www.finncrisp.com/crispbreads/thin-crisps/

I like seasoned Rye-Krisp. One serving is 60 calories and has 2 grams of fiber and 2 grams of protein. If you have them with Laughing Cow Lite Garlic & Herb cheese, you have a 95-calorie snack that tastes pretty good.

Triscuits only have about 4 ingredients, the main one being whole wheat. That's about as nutritious as you're going to get for crackers, IMO.

You might try Wasa Crisp-n-Light (60 calories for three larger-sized crackers) but top them with something as they are bland, but nice and crisp and crunchy.

Also rice crackers. I think you can have 16 of them for 110 calories. Half of that usually is good for me with some peanut butter or jam on them.

Can someone give me a name of nutritious crackers that are not too high in sugar, carbs, and can provide fiber? I was going to buy triscuits yesterday, but was hesitant. I am trying to expand snack list. Every now and then I like peanut butter and crackers and thought perhaps someone could give me a good suggestion on what type of crackers to buy.
