I don’t recall where I first heard about Wasa bread, but a few weeks ago, I was out grocery shopping and decided to pick up a box. Wasa has several different varieties, but I chose the Crisp ‘n Light version because of its whole grain and the fact that it’s only 20 calories per piece!
These are some of my favorite ways to eat it:
- Spread with a layer of creamy spinach-artichoke hummus
- Topped with spreadable Feta cheese and sliced grape tomatoes
- Spread with a thin layer of peanut butter and raspberry preserves
- Broken into pieces in a bowl and eaten like chips
Seriously, this completely fulfills my crunch-cravings so I don’t have to resort to chips or less-nutritious crackers. I tend to eat 3-5 pieces for a snack serving, which is only 60-80 calories. I adore it so much that I ended up buying a case of 10 boxes from Amazon, and I’m a tad embarrassed to admit that I’m already more than halfway through it.
For those that are on a diet, or just looking to substitute a new product for something less healthy, definitely give Wasa Crisp ‘n Light a shot. If you’re tired of just veggies or fruit with your dips or spreads, Wasa is an awesome way to mix it up and add a little crunch into your snacks.
Note: Sometimes this product is a little tricky to find in stores- if it’s not by the other crackers, check to see if there’s a specialty section of crackers and breads by the cheese and deli department- or you can always order on Amazon!
