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. By bumping up their fiber content, your baked goods will become more satiating, making you full faster. This way, you’ll be less likely to overindulge in them and pack on the unwelcome holiday pounds. Try out the tips below, and take a look at my recipe for Pumpkin Walnut muffins:
Mmmmm, that deep, deep voice! Those sweet, loving lyrics. Barry White's "You're the First, the Last, My Everything" has been inducing swoons for decades, and it most likely will continue to do so for decades to come.
This Monday as you're working (or browsing the net for Cyber Monday deals), lean back and give your ears a treat.
We're a few days away from the biggest feast of the year. Thoughts of turkey and cranberries and sweet potatoes and green been casserole and pie and pie and pie... sorry, zoned out for a minute.
This week's Music Monday pick is Eric Carmen's "Hungry Eyes," which gobbled its way up the Billboard music charts in 1987. It's obvious why this song is a great pick for Thanksgiving week, right? Hungry eyes abound in anticipation of Thursday!
We're in the season of sharing and giving thanks. But a lot of the time, this season can also turn into being all about eating until you feel like your belt is going to sling itself right off your body and clear across the room.
One way to make sure you don't over-thank yourself for your capacity to consume is by adding some extra fiber to your meal. Fiber helps you to feel fuller longer, so infusing a side dish with a fiber dash might help you to limit your intake during dinner – while still saving room for dessert, of course!
Try out this easy Orange Cranberry Sauce recipe, featuring the FiberLove Orange Cranberry bar, for a tasty, filling dish with less than 100 calories per serving.
We all love singing along to this song, right? Sometimes very loudly? Sometimes with a whole lot of passion? Sometimes into our hair brushes or pens or water bottles or anything else that might be close enough to double as a microphone?
"I Want You to Want Me" by Cheap Trick hit big in the U.S.A. 34 years ago, and has been inspiring high-energy, rhythmic confessions of love ever since. So join in the great American tradition and press play and rock out, won't you?
So Peanut and Chocolate Chip walk into a bar...
FiberLove is elated to announce the pairing of Peanut and Chocolate Chip in loving, wedded bliss! Now, Peanut Chocolate Chip is the newest member of the FiberLove flavor roster.
Peanut and Chocolate Chip sparked a deliciously adorable courtship upon meeting in – of all places – a bar.
That night, Peanut arrived to the FiberLove bar first. She sat alone, ever-confident in her often-complimented, buttery demeanor and talent for providing comfort in most any situation. Peanut barely scanned the room.
Since FiberLove debuted, it's been getting quite a bit of affection from our new friends around the internet. But don't just take our word for it! Take a gander at what these bloggers, nutritionists and fiber fans have to say about our fabulous high-fiber bars! Then chat us up on social media to tell us what you think about FiberLove.

How many times have you heard someone glance nonchalantly at a clock, only to get wide-eyed and exclaim excitedly "It's 11:11! Make a wish!"? Quite a few times, we bet.
11:11 is like the chronological equivalent of an eyelash stuck on a cheek, or a coin tossed into a fountain -- it's a free pass to wish for whatever you're craving. And it just so happens that on this very special Monday, it's 11/11 all day long!
We hope you're as lucky as Hall & Oates, and your day is full of dreams coming true. Get your smiles started by delighting your ears with this happy classic! Check out the video for "You Make My Dreams" by Hall and Oates, below.
You know that feeling of elation you get when you realize that you’re in a great, mutually-respectful and adorably-loving relationship? That’s the kind of feeling we hope you get when you think of FiberLove, and we’d like to suggest a soundtrack to accompany your happy snacking.
“Love on Top” by Beyoncé encompasses loving joy in three minutes of upbeat, sonic bliss. Plus, the music video is pretty fun to watch. This tune can also serve as a fun song to add to your workout playlist, so you can motivate yourself to be in extra-great shape in this season leading up to multiple feasts and family reunions.
