Review of GG Bran Crispbread

Prior to starting a low carb based diet, I had no idea what crispbread was or how it tasted. You can think of crispbread as a minimally processed cracker. This particular crispbread comes from Norway and is 85% bran. This leads to low calories, only 12 per slice, and low carbs, only 2 per slice.

They are firm and taste like you’d think almost pure bran does. It’s a little grainy and chewey, but not soft.

I use them for mini-pizzas, cheese spread and may favorite dish. You take four crispbreads, spread on whipped cream cheese, sprinkle on splenda and cinammon. It tastes delicious and is a a sweet treat. I cannot reccomend this more for people losing weight.

Review of Appleton Honey Cooked Ham

What can you say about processed ham?

I was hoping this ham would have a tinge of the honey promised on the label, but it didn’t. It was tasy, though. The one thing I like about cooked ham like this is the uniformity of it. It’s a rectangle, so there’s no guessing as to what it will fit on or what it won’t.

There are two cautions about this ham:

  1. Water content: It seems to have a ton of water in it. When I microwaved it to act as a bed for my scrambled eggs, I was left with a fine puddle of water. A paper towel took care of that, but it is a little messy.
