The Holidays have officially arrived! We hope you enjoy a happy and healthy holiday season!
Staying on track during this time can be challenging. If you’re having difficulty resisting holiday goodies and unhealthy “comfort” foods or keeping portion sizes in check, our best tip is to stay hydrated and increase your fiber intake! Why? Because when you’re adequately hydrated and get enough fiber, it helps curb sugar cravings and makes you feel full faster and stay full longer! (Warning: It stabilizes energy levels too!)
Cooking with just better.®️ prebiotic fiber is a great way to help you reach your fiber intake goals while enjoying your everyday recipes. (And even reducing sugar in your favorite holiday treats!)
Cranberry sauce is a holiday favorite, but most recipes require a lot of sugar. This year, we hope you’ll try our version with a big fiber boost and half the sugar!
The best part is just better.®️ prebiotic fiber will help tone down those tart flavor notes and add healthy all-natural fiber to your holiday cranberry dish.
just better.®️ Fiber Up Cranberry Sauce
2 cups of fresh cranberries (rinse and remove the overly ripe ones)
¾ cup water
½ cup sugar
¼ cup just better.®️ fiber
In a medium saucepan, bring water, sugar, and just better.®️ fiber to a boil, then add rinsed cranberries and return to boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally.
For a smoother sauce, cook until most of the cranberry skins pop; once most of the skins have popped, turn off the heat and cool to room temperature.
The sauce will thicken as it cools.
Refrigerate once the sauce has cooled.
Before serving, we like to fold gently in canned, drained, or fresh mandarin oranges. You can also garnish with chopped walnuts or pecans. Enjoy! And Happy Holidays!
