Corned Beef Made by DLM's Own Leprechauns!
Corned Beef and Cabbage is a part of the Irish food culture. Once again we are making our own Honestly Better® Corned Beef.We start off with only the finest cuts of Coleman Natural Beef™ (flat-cut brisket, bottom round, and eye of round) and pickle it with a curing blend of special seasonings and spices for two weeks before it is ready to cook. The only shortcut taken here was that we had to use local leprechauns to produce this product! Roast a slab of this corned beef with a head of cabbage and five pounds of potatoes, and your family and friends won't go hungry for a week! The great thing about it is, the leftovers just get better. And think about the Reubens you can make!

Are You Getting Enough Fiber?
Most of us aren’t getting the recommended 35 grams of fiber in our daily diet, which is unfortunate considering all the benefits we can reap from fiber. When it comes to weight loss, fiber eliminates calories from the foods you eat, helps curb your appetite, allows you to eat more food and absorb fewer calories, and it slows down the rate at which your body converts carbohydrates to sugar. An easy solution to our lack of fiber is solved by The Fiber 35 Diet FitSmart Shakes and Bars. Each bar and shake serving contains 10 grams of fiber, providing you a delicious way to solve your fiber deficiency. Start reaping the benefits today!
