Glucomannan: The New Weight Loss Secret?

Glucomannan is becoming my favorite new cooking addition

I had never heard of glucomannan before reading Trim Healthy Mama. Since adding it to our pantry, I can’t believe this is such a secret!

What is it???

Glucomannan is a supplement that is made from the roots of the konjac plant. It has been used in Japan for centuries and is knows as the “broom of the intestines.” Can you use glucomannan for weight loss?

It is basically a thickener. It absorbs liquids without changing the flavor and without needing to be heated. It is able to turn 1 cup of liquid into a thick pudding with only using a teaspoon. This also fills you up and keeps you full longer, which can benefit people trying to lose weight. Glucomannan is fiber, so it helps keep you regular too! read more

Trim and Healthy Holiday Goodie Swap

A Trim and Healthy Holiday Goodie Swap Party! 

One of my favorite memories of the holidays is having a party where you all bake the best goodies to share. I would make all these tins full of goodies and give them to co-workers, neighbors and friends. It is an easy way to show people you are thinking about them without having a spend a whole lot of money during the holiday season. 

You can share these goodies with other Trim Healthy Mamas or you can show how easy it is to follow the plan and eat such tasty foods!
