Fill Up on These Fiber-Rich Snacks

March 27, 2015 5:02 pm

Eating foods that are high in fiber will help to keep you feeling full longer without making you go over your calorie limit. Here are a few fiber-rich snacks that will stop a growling stomach, help give you more energy, and even help promote good digestion for the rest of the day.

  1. Sweet potato fries. While sweet potato fries are delicious and may seem totally indulgent, this filling snack is actually loaded with fiber.
  2. Edamame hummus. If you’re a hummus lover who is always looking for new versions of this tasty dip, this fiber-rich version is a must try. Edamame hummus is just as creamy as the original, and it’s very easy to make at home.
  3. Rice cakes with almond butter. Rice cakes are a popular health food because they are low in calories and very versatile, and by adding fiber and vitamin-packed almond butter, you can make them even more satisfying.
  4. Flaxseed. Sprinkle ground flaxseed onto your oatmeal, yogurt, or even ice cream for a boost of fiber from an otherwise lacking food.
  5. Pears. If you’re on the go and simply don’t have time to prepare a complicated snack, grab a whole raw pear for a tasty treat that’s filled with fiber.

Why Reserve Cake for Special Occasions? Enjoy a Sweet Treat From Susie Cakes Anytime

March 18, 2015 4:01 pm

Most people associate cake with celebration — birthdays, weddings, and showers. But Susan Sarich, owner of Susie Cakes in Marina del Rey, believes you shouldn't have to wait for these milestone events to enjoy cake. A slice of cake can make an ordinary day brighter, and she strives to offer her customers the best cakes possible, created from her grandmother's recipes. With more than a dozen locations throughout California, it's clear that her customers agree with that philosophy.

Customers say they feel a smile forming on their faces when they step into Susie Cakes; it has a whimsical, retro decor and it has a large glass window through which customers can watch bakers creating and decorating treats. Susie Cakes is known as a go-to spot for layer cakes, and the carrot layer cake is a particular favorite. The cookies and bars, including the lemon squares and classic chocolate brownies, are also popular. But the standout treat at Susie Cakes are the cupcakes — you'll always find a standard roster of flavors, including vanilla and red velvet, as well as limited-edition seasonal cupcakes, including pumpkin spice with butter cream frosting.
