Top Glucomannan Recipes

Top Glucomannan Recipes

I have fallen in love with Glucomannan. I have written about my love for it in several posts now and recipes. I wanted to share with you some of the top recipes I have found using glucomannan as an ingredient.

Why do I love glucomannan? It is low carb, low calorie, versatile, sugar free and gluten free. As you will see from these recipes, you can use it in anything as a thickener. From gravy to milkshakes, only your imagination is your limit. Read more about glucomannan here and why it may help you with weight loss.  read more

Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole

Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole

As a kid, I loved eating Mac and Cheese. During the summer, my brother and me would live off of mac and cheese and grilled cheese sandwiches. This recipe is low carb and gluten free which makes it the perfect substitution for my childhood cravings.

We love cauliflower at our house. It is one vegetable that you can make into almost anything. I saw a recipe recently using cauliflower to make a cheese sauce that looked amazing.

This recipe uses a different ingredient called Glucomannan. I use it fairly often for thickening sauces. You can omit it if you don’t have any or check out my store and order some. Learn more about Glucomannan here.

I keep my glucomannan in a little shaker to make it easier to add to dishes.

This Cheeseburger Cauliflower Casserole is a good recipe to add to your weeknight rotations. It is quick and easy to throw together.

Found It Fridays #1

Best of the Week 

Here on Found it Fridays, I’m going to take the opportunity to highlight and share some recipes or ideas that I have stumbled upon during the past week. I’m open to recipes, crafts, tips, anything goes! If it is something worthy to share, it is worthy of Found it Fridays. 

 1) Easy Low Carb Mozzarella Sticks

I love this recipe idea for easy low carb mozzarella sticks. I think that these would be perfect for a movie date at home  or an extra special treat for the kid’s snack. Mozzarella sticks are a childhood favorite of mine too!

3) Stacy Makes Cents Scavenger Hunt Date Idea

First off, I love Stacy. I can’t share the love enough. This idea is both so cute and frugal (two things that sum up Stacy in my mind too). If you are looking for a funny blog to follow full of helpful tips, recipes, and saving money tips, hers is the one to hit up. I can’t wait to try out this date night with Adam.

 4) Better than Bread Pudding Crockpot Pumpkin Apple Bread Pudding

{Oh My!, this Southern Girl Can’t contain herself} Sara is a good blogging friend of mine. She is also a southern girl, so she knows that bread pudding runs deep in a southern girl’s cravings. First off this is low sugar and healthy. This recipe is also made in the crockpot! What more could you want in a recipe?

5) Low Carb, Grain-free Heavenly Strawberry Cake from Satisfying Eats

With Valentine’s Day approaching, I was thinking a good strawberry cake would be a good recipe to include. I found this one from Melissa at Satisfying Eats. She gave up grains and her health improved tremendously. We are basically grain free at our house. I love that this recipe is low carb and grain free – – and so pretty too.
