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.
It’s pie season! Apple, pumpkin, pudding, mousse – we love 'em all. No matter your pie of choice, chances are it’ll taste wonderful atop a bedding of crumbled, packed, buttery graham cracker. Working a FiberLove bar into your graham cracker crust recipe is a great way to infuse your dessert with some extra flavor and fiber. We used Peanut Chocolate Chip in this graham cracker pie crust, and I must say, it tasted glorious. Making a graham cracker crust doesn't require much skill, and isn't too time-consuming either. So, whether you’re a kitchen novice or a regular Martha Stewart, you’ve got this.
October is Non-GMO Month! GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) are created when biotech companies use bacteria and viruses to introduce genes from other plants or animals into the DNA of crops to add a desired trait—like extra color, plumpness, or pesticide resistance.
Sounds kind of like science fiction. But it's not. The Non-GMO Project estimates that in North America, over 80% of food contains GMOs!
Because we're passionate about keeping our FiberLove bars pure and wholesome, and the long-term effects of consuming GMO-containing foods have not been determined, we only use top-notch, Non-GMO Project Verified ingredients in our bars.
The Non-GMO Project is North America's only independent product verification system, and the Non-GMO Project verification seal is one that FiberLove bars wear with pride.
