Are you ready to rock some Ryvita?
I go through cycles of eating Ryvita Crispbreads. I eat them for a while at work, then I turn back to sandwiches. I tend to eat them more often when I'm trying to eat lighter or I'm back on the 5:2 diet, but I only realised when Ryvita challenged me, how poorly I've been treating them.
So what have I been dressing my Ryvita in?
Half a light Laughing Cow triangle. Yes, you may well laugh!
In my defence it's low calorie, but I forgot that salad and vegetables can be light toppings too and way more interesting.
Ryvita used to be a pretty standard crispbread too, but just look at all the flavours you can choose from now!
You may not realise that rye is the main ingredient in Ryvita cripsbreads and that rye is packed with nutritional benefits. The crispbreads simply made with water, salt and rye, then extra goodies like seeds are added.
- High in Vitamin B, Riboflavin, Niacin, Pantothenic Acid and Vitamin B6
- Rich in Magnesium (strong muscles)
- Rich in Zinc (healthy bones, hair nails and skin)
- Rich in Wholegrain and Dietary Fibre
So are you ready to see how my week of Ryvita looks? No more Laughing Cow!
#MyVita Work Week
Sweet Onion Ryvita
A Sweet Onion Ryvita Crispbread, topped with slices of creamy, ripe avocado, tossed in a little lemon juice so they don't discolour. Topped with slices of radish and cucumber for crunch and finished with some finely grated lemon peel for a little kick of citrus. Heavenly healthy!
Dark Rye Ryvita
A dark rye crispbread topped with dairy free pesto, fresh basil, two layers of ripe red tomato slices, milky baby mozzarella balls, more fresh basil and a drizzle of balsamic glaze for that Italian classic, Caprese Salad.
A slice of sesame crispbread, heaped high with hummus, topped with slices of crunchy cucumber, spiralzsed carrot (if you don't have a spiralizer, Tesco sell tubs of spiralized vegetables) and finished with a sprinkle of sesame seeds to echo the flavour of the crispbread. Simple, but a delight.
Pumpkin Seeds and Oats Ryvita
This one was amazingly flavourful. A pumpkin seed and oat crispbread topped with dairy free pesto, salad leaves, sundried tomatoes, ripe baby plum tomatoes and baby pickled beets. My mouth is watering just remembering this one.
Currants, Seeds and Oats Ryvita
We had to finish on a high with something a bit naughty. Friday is the beginning of the weekend after all. This one is luxurious, but still includes one of your five-a-day. A currant, seed and oat crispbread topped with Philadelphia cream cheese mixed with a little icing sugar and lemon juice and a dollop of soft set raspberry jam swirled through, then topped with fresh tart raspberries and finely grated lemon peel. You'll do a Meg Ryan and moan out loud when you bite into this one and everyone will want what you are having!
