BEWARE of "Stealth Fiber" in new Kellogg's Fiber plus Antioxidants products!

Kellogg's new Fiber Plus Antioxidants bars and cereals list Chicory Root Powder as the #1 ingredient. This is a common form of inulin which can cause SEVERE gastic distress and is NOT thought to be a good substitute for natural fiber.

Be sure to specify Serving SIZE in Recipes you share as well as # of servings!!

If you prepare a new recipe and share it with SP, PLEASE indicate the serving size in the recipe! If you just say your recipe "Makes 12 servings of 147 calories each" without specifying you meant 12 1/2-cup servings it may ruin the day for someone who guessed you meant 1-cup servings!

Love Mainstays Digital Kitchen Scales from Wal-Mart

This scale was inexpensive, has tare automatically when you turn it on with empty container on it and can be re-tared as each item added, is very accurate (I verified with known weights) and is easy to use and clean. It is also very attractive and can be left out on the counter!
