As seen on ABC: Dietitian-approved no-bake pumpkin spice granola bars

Most of us need a snack to get through our day. “Only 6 percent of people don’t snack at all,” explain Hy-Vee Dietitian Carrie Nielsen when she appeared on her local ABC News. And 50 percent of us are frequent snackers, noshing on a little pick-me-up two or three time a day. Health experts say that’s fine and dandy as long as you’re smart about it, such as choosing Nielsen’s no-bake – and Regular Girl enhanced – pumpkin spice granola bars. Nielsen had this snacking advice for viewers: “Make the most of your snacks by choosing nutrient-rich, high-fiber foods.” Fiber, she explained, is great for digestive and cardiovascular health. She suggested picking up fiber-packed crackers, chips, nuts, hummus and “natural fast foods” such as apples, pears and oranges. She also shared this tasty fall-inspired recipe which gets a fiber boost from Regular Girl.
