    Oh, how we love rice crackers too! At our local health food store the selection doesn’t end at rice however. We have buckwheat, quinoa, millet, nori, and other varieties of puffed rice-like crackers. And we sometimes make peanut butter and honey sandwiches using them. Yum! Also, we use a variety of “butters” – pumpkin or sunflower seed butter, cashew or macadamia nut butters. And hummus is always a winner of course. As is soft goat cheese (for those of us that are dairy tolerant).

    My 3-year-old son had severe eczema until he was diagnosed with food allergies a few months back. I have a blog that shares our family’s battles with eczema, allergies, and asthma (yes, lucky guy has that too).

    I think the key is to learn from one another, so the more information out there to the masses, the better. With this in mind I’ve started a blog hop for anyone dealing with allergies, eczema, or asthma, either for themselves or as a caregiver. If you’re interested in joining, please add a comment. I’d love to welcome you to the group. http://itchylittleworld.wordpress.com/blog-hop/

      HI Jennifer!

      I just stopped at this site to see what I can do with the rice cakes we are no longer using since we found out they are high in phytates and not good for my son. I’ll probably pack them up and donate them to a food bank.
      I’m finding out that the healthiest way to prepare grains is to soak them a certain way to reduce the phytates.

      If you want to help reduce allergies, have better health with less cavities, look up Dr Weston Price’s findings.

        Hi Rose, I wrote this post a LONG time ago. I never eat rice cakes anymore. I’m already a Weston Price fan….just peruse my site a little closer:)

    Love these ideas! Id like to add a couple personal faves- rice cake with cream cheese, slices of banana, and sprinkled with cinnamon. Ive also done this is vegan cream cheese with good results. And when I feel the need for calories- rice cake with cream cheese and nutella. Sooooooo good! :)
