This Is How You Make Millions Off Your Grandma's Brownie Recipe

Lizanne Falsetto thinks big and she thinks thin. The former model-turned-CEO of nutrition bar company thinkThin has built a multi-million dollar business from the ground up. She joined HuffPost Live host Josh Zepps Tuesday to discuss her 17-year-long road to success.

Falsetto says she based her on-the-go food bars, which are low-sugar, high-protein and gluten-free, on her Italian grandmother's own brownie recipe.
