They seem like your typical Crispbread, a lot like Wasa or Melba Toast. But it is the Nutritional Facts on these that make them special. Why doesn't Jorge Cruise mention them in the book? Maybe because they are featured (actually required) in the F-Factor Diet book and he didn't want to copy that. Or maybe it is that he doesn't know about the "Elusive GG Crispbreads". If you are brand new to Low Sugar/Carbs you may not like these, but if you are well into and committed to the lifestyle I think you will appreciate them for all that they are. They are dry, so dress them up a bit. They are crunchy, but light (goodbye potato chip craving) and very best of all they leave you feeling full.
I eat between 2-4 them for lunch, as a bread replacement. I load them up with turkey, avocado & cheese, tuna salad, hummus. Each cracker has 0g Sugar/7g Carbs/5g Fiber for an S/C Value of 0/1. They have totally set a new Low Sugar/Carb High Fiber standard for my diet and helped me get 40grams of Fiber in a day the last few weeks.
I called up the GG Headquarters and found out the product is imported from Norway. (So much for eating local and saving the planet, I've got weight to lose!) I asked for a list of retailers that sold them so I could pass that info along to you all, but unfortunately the list never arrived. If you have seen these in a store PLEASE leave a comment and tell us where! Whole Foods in the Northeast, NJ and NY apparently carry them, but the rest of us will have to order online. I asked the great folks over at CarbSmart for a way to let you all try these and they offered my readers a 10% discount on order $25 and up (good through 3/31). Enter the code 'AMBER' at checkout, and technically you can use the discount on any of their products.
Note: Be sure and increase your water intake when consuming more Fiber! I didn't the first few days and woke up noticeably dehydrated.
