Don't know if rice cakes are clean. They might be organic, they might have ingredients that sound healthy but they are still made from a "popped" form (greatly heated starch is questionable health-wise) of grain which I have read isn't really very nutritious. I suppose that if a person is just starting out and wants something crunchy instead of chips, a rice cake might be a better choice. I like rice cakes but eat them very rarely any more.
I need to add something. If you are going to eat rice cakes make sure they are organic and don't have any "funny" ingredients. There are a LOT of junky rice cakes out there posing as "health foods". Read labels!!
Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it's a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they're terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul
