I started to eat rice cakes instead of cookies because they have less sugar. Does anyone else do this?

They don't provide much nutrition but work in place of bread for those on the gluten-free diet.

I agree with SlimmerKiwi...I use rice cakes as a vehicle for something more tasty. Usually peanut butter and maybe a little jam.

They do make some yummy flavors that are good on their own, like the tomato basil, chocolate and caramel corn.

If you find them as satisfying as a cookie maybe they would be an ok substitute. Probably depends on the person.

As a substitute for cookies? Nope. If you want a good cookie, enjoy a cookie and track it.

Rice cakes have basically no nutritional value; they are comparable to potato chips and other similar snack foods. If you have some and want to use them, they can indeed be used as a vehicle for a healthy choice.

I just look at rice cakes as a conduit for holding something like cottage cheese and tomato, and generally as an alternative to wheat-containing similar. They have carbs and often a fair bit of sodium, but apart from that, nothing nutritionally, really. They don't provide any satiety so I would rather go with a piece of wholegrain bread, toasted, with something on it.

Hi,

You can look them up in the Nutrition Tracker and then have the info to compare to your cookie of choice.

No, if texture(crunch) was the end, then maybe

Not much. Basically pure carbs with just a tiny little bit of fiber and protein.
