Using Popcorn & Rice Cakes to Target Your Diet Weaknesses

Written by Diet Bites

Hitting the Diet's Bull's-eye with low calorie popcorn and rice cake recipes for dieters.


Whether your diet weakness is sweet nothings, or proteins, or dairy products, or even chocolate - using popcorn and rice cakes can help you win your Weight Loss Battle!

Years ago, when rice cakes hit the market, I immediately ventured out to pick up a bag. Boy, was I excited. They looked so good on the commercials, too.

However, after eating one and spewing rice particles out of my mouth like a snow blower for at least two minutes, my sweet vision of these cardboard tasting treats proved to be nothing more than an illusion.

I thought I would receive the luscious taste of buttery rice, and perhaps even feel a bit oriental, but alas this was not the case. However, my chopsticks did work well as 'rice cake stabbers'.

Over the years, new varieties of these light cakes have made their way into the market. If you haven't experimented with rice or popcorn cakes in a while, try them again.

The Orville Redenbacher's "Butter Popcorn Cakes" are especially great tasting - with or without toppings. Here are a few suggestions that will spice up your diet and save you boo-coos of calories. All treats average about 50 calories per cake.  

One last health note: there is a popular fad diet that continues to circle the Diet Village called 'The Popcorn Diet' (link leads to Diet Bites review of this naughty fad diet) which should be avoided. Also, you may enjoy our Movie Popcorn Quiz.  Just how many calories are there inside that delicious bucket of hot buttered movie popcorn?  Now onward and upward!
