Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Anne R. Shares her Recipe "The best diet for me includes small meals and enough protein to help me heal and feel good during treatments. I use protein powder to boost the protein in foods that I can eat, as in these lemon bars. For a zestier lemon flavor, I add grated lemon peel to the filling."

    Low fiber; low residue

    A Note from Dr. Ghosh These bars are a great snack or mini-meal when you are on the go! A daily dose of light exercise for 30 minutes can help combat your fatigue and lift your spirits.
