Title to be sung to the tune of
Vanilla Ice’s “Ice, Ice Baby.”
Let’s get serious here for a moment friends, shall we?
I continually scratch my head
at the fact that this food item:
is actually considered a dieter’s food staple.
Of course I understand the concept fully as to why anyone struggling with their weight
would rely upon these cakes of rice to be sufficient snacks.
Only the concept however,
because once you bite into one of these things,
several things occur:
1. I immediately understand what eating packaging popcorn tastes like without ever tasting it.
2. Once finished with said cake of rice, I feel as hungry as I did prior to eating it.
3. The fact that the word “cake” is in its name is something I fully object to because nowhere during the course of eating these do I ever feel like I am partaking in something cake-like!!
4. I can now nod in agreement when someone describes the taste of air.
It tastes like these rice cakes.
It tastes like nothing.
I used to struggle with my weight.
I thought that in order to lose weight, one had to indulge on:
No wonder I didn’t succeed at dieting because you cannot live off of these things and be happy.
Well, how in the world do I transition from here?
Now that I have just convinced you all of why you shouldn’t eat rice cakes,
let us turn our attention to today’s turkey made from:
(((hoots and hollering)))
Hmmm, kinda worked against myself today, didn’t I?
Turning a rice cake into a turkey…
Now that is finding the silver lining!
Now that is food of sustenance!
(How did I do with reining you back in???)
Plus it makes this food piece much more interesting doesn’t it?
(Is it working yet?)
Shall I tap dance now?
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
- 1 rice cake
- 1 Tb. nut butter
- 1/2 banana
- almond slices
- 1 raisin, cut in 1/2
- 2 cashew halves
- 1 almond half
I can feel the pounds just shedding away…
*it’s probably from the insane chewing that is involved with these cakes*
Again, not a cake.
