What do you get when you mix potatoes, green beans, almonds and FiberLove? A warm dish to fill you up and comfort you on a cold winter night. (Or, any night, really.) This Winter Potato Medley is easy to make, and even easier to enjoy. Just chop up the ingredients, throw them in a pan, bake them for a while, and voilà!
"Who needs a heart when a heart can be broken?"
These are the memorable words belted by Tina Turner in her hit "What's Love Got to Do with It?". We assume Tina was being a little dramatic with that line. I mean, everyone needs a heart, broken or not. But we get the sentiment. And, as it just so happens, if you find yourself feeling like Tina, we might be able to help! Fiber is great for cardiovascular health, so even if your flame leaves you jilted, you can always rely on FiberLove.
In case you don't have a FiberLove bar within reach though, perhaps you can find solace in Tina's jam. Sing your heart out! (Not literally.)

Cookie parties, family gatherings, reunions with friends – this season is full of great times to gather with loved ones. And to stuff your face with delicious treats. (Yumm…) Unfortunately, face-stuffing doesn’t always seem like such a great idea in retrospect. (We don’t make New Year’s resolutions just for fun!)
The good news is that with a few easy additions and substitutions, you can turn your favorite holiday baked goods into fiber powerhouses without detracting from the decadent taste that makes you crave them so much in the first place.
