Taste Buddy 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.
Hey, you! You deserve a treat, don't you think? (We'll assume you're nodding in agreement.) If you're looking to eat a dessert but want to make sure you're not just packing in the empty calories, we have some great suggestions for you. Use a FiberLove bar to craft a tasty apple cinnamon dessert, a healthier version of the classic "Worms in Mud" concoction, or a personalized trail mix you can carry anywhere.
Check out these fun and easy desserts you can make (then devour, healthily) in minutes! Bonus: they're great for kids too!
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.
Today is Thursday. It also just so happens to be National Cake Decorating Day! Who knew, right? Well, actually, we did. So we made a cake and ate it too – but not before giving it a FiberLovin’ touch.
A weird thing about carrot cake is that, even though it’s got a vegetable in its name, many carrot cake recipes are actually pretty unhealthy. Luckily, a few people have found ways to invent carrot cake recipes that are nearly as healthy as the cake’s name might imply. On myrecipes.com, we found a commendable carrot cake concoction by dietician Kathie Kitchens Downie. Then we tweaked it to make it a bit more fiber-friendly. So keep reading for a heart-healthy carrot cake recipe that tastes delish!
