Diet restrictions shouldn't have to mean giving up your favorite treats. We're all guilty with trying to "cheat" or go against the Doctor's orders every now and then. Why not have a treat that you wouldn't have to feel guilty about?!
I love cookies and decided to contact Yes! To Cookies for a possible giveaway and they happily agreed. They mailed a package of cookies out promptly to my home and due to my being ill, this giveaway is a bit late so I apologize not only to the owners of Yes! To Cookies, I also apologize to my readers.

I absolutely love the names! I'm here to tell you about the company and the products, this is not a review. However, I want you to visualize taking a bite of a loved one's homemade banana bread. The Strawberry-Banana Blitz has a distinctive taste that reminded me of my grandmother's fresh, baked banana bread.
I'd now like to share what the company has to say about these cookies, each quote is accompanied with the link to that particular passage.

Fiber in Cookies

A diet high in fiber fills you up faster and is important for proper food digestion, providing the bulk your body needs to move the food through the different stages of digestion. A diet filled with soft, over processed, high carbohydrate food is an invitation for trouble.
