Organic Psyllium Husk

Psyllium husk is your new best friend if you're not getting enough fibre in your diet! It contains a spongy fibre that reduces appetite, improves digestion and cleanses the system. When combined with water, pysllium husk forms a gel (that is naturally gluten free!) that can help to keep the bowels regular and is far more gentle – and natural – than using a laxative.

Its simple to add into your diet. Mix with water, add to your smoothies, breakfast cereals, breads and baking.

  • Relieve constipation and diarrhea
  • Promote healthy weight management by keeping you satisfied and consuming less food, which can assist in weight loss

USE IT!

Using this fibre is quite simple. The recommended dosage is 1 tbsp with 250ml of water and to drink before a meal or first thing in the morning.

It can also be added to your baking as a binding agent and is a great substitute for gluten. However, extra liquid is required to balance out the stickiness psyllium husk creates. 

 

RECIPE:

5 Minute Keto Pizza Crust

Ingredients:

Pizza Crust

  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tbsp parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp psyllium husk powder (blitz the husks to form a powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tsp frying oil

Toppings of your choice!

Directions:

  1. Measure out all dry ingredients into a bowl or container
  2. Add 2 eggs and mix everything together using a blender. Make sure you continue blending for about 30 seconds, allowing the psyllium husk to absorb some of the liquid.
  3. Heat 2 tsp. frying oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Once very hot, spoon your mixture into the pan and spread out into a circle shape.
  4. Once the edges have started to set and look slightly brown, flip the pizza crust. You can optionally transfer it to a plate and flip from there. Turn the broiler on high in the oven.
  5. . Cook on the opposite side for 30-60 seconds, then turn the stove off. Spoon sauce over the pizza and spread.
  6. Add cheese and the rest of the toppings then put pizza into the oven to broil. Leave the oven open a crack so you can keep an eye on it. Once it’s bubbling, remove it from the oven.
  7. Serve with some freshly chopped basil over the top!
