Great new products for Step 2 (and Maintenance)…. Don’t let the name “Fiber Plus” deter you… these products should be named “Flavor Plus”

Readers and patients are always asking me to keep an eye out for new products that are flavorful and fit into Step 1 and 2 of the program. With so much deceiving packaging in the grocery store (the FDA only regulates the Nutrition labels on food and beverage packaging), I take it upon myself to weed out the “real” products that fit the program, and the imposters.

On a recent trip to the store, I noted that Kellogg’s has a new line of products out under the label “Fiber Plus”. These products are tasty, easy to find, and easy to add in to your Step 2 or Maintenance lifestyle. Being that they are higher in fiber content, it makes them a perfect choice to use as your 11-20g items.

Craving waffles with your morning egg whites? Look no further than Eggo Fiber Plus Buttermilk Waffles. And get this…. 2 waffles=20g carb! Enjoy with a lite butter spread and top with Walden Farms Calorie Free Pancake Syrup (neutral) for a perfect way to round out your Step 2 or maintenance breakfast.  Also great to use as a night time snack!  Examples of Step 2 meals including this product:

  1. Egg white omelet with peppers, onions, cheddar cheese and (2) Eggo Fiber Plus Buttermilk Waffles with lite butter and Walden Farms syrup

 2.  1 EAS AdvantEdge Carb Control Shake and (2) Eggo Fiber Plus Buttermilk Waffles topped with lite whipped cream

 Always on the go? Looking for a product that can be thrown in your backpack, purse, or laptop bag… or to keep a supply in your car “just in case”? Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Bars come in 4 very yummy flavors: Caramel Coconut Fudge, Chocolate Chip, Dark Chocolate Almond, and Chocolatey Peanut Butter. These bars are a treat… it’s more like eating a candy bar than a “healthy” bar. They make a perfect snack while on Step 2 or Maintenance if meals are greater than 5 hours apart, or make a perfect 11-20g addition to any meal (or a dessert!). Examples of Step 2 meals including this product:

  1. Grilled chicken breast drizzled with balsamic vinaigrette with a side of broccoli and (1)Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Bar

 2. Tuna salad in lettuce wraps with a string cheese and (1)Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Bar

And lastly, for all of you cereal lovers out there, Kellogg’s has a product for you, too. Named Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Antioxidants Cereal: Cinnamon Oat Crunch…this cereal is packed full of flavor. ¾ of a cup makes an 11-20g serving (when mixed with unsweetened soy milk or unsweetened almond milk). This can also be eaten dry, and makes a great “on the go snack”. Just put ¾ cup in a baggie and bring it with you for a sweet, crunchy treat! Examples of meals including Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Antioxidants Cereal: Cinnamon Oat Crunch:

  1.  2 hard boiled eggs (1 yolk) and 3/4 c Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Antioxidants Cereal: Cinnamon Oat Crunch with desired amount of unsweetened soy or almond milk topped with handful of Emerald’s Cinnamon Roast Almonds

 

2.  Low fat cottage cheese and ¾ c Kellogg’s Fiber Plus Antioxidants Cereal: Cinnamon Oat Crunch with desired amount of unsweetened soy or almond milk
