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

Trim and Healthy Asian Lettuce Wraps

I fell in love with lettuce wraps not to long ago… and I am hooked. We had them first at Cheesecake Factory. They were chicken and mushroom lettuce wraps and they were amazing! I was hooked from the first bite. I knew I would need to figure out a way to make these at home, because I couldn’t afford to go to Cheesecake Factory as often as I would want to eat these Asian lettuce wraps.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Since opening my world to lettuce wraps, I have a love for all things wrapped in lettuce. I know that if you haven’t tried them yet, you may not think they could be that wonderful… but just wait til you try these!!! I am going to be working on Mexican Lettuce Wraps, Peanut Sauce Lettuce Wraps, and Cheeseburger lettuce wraps.

Most lettuce wraps use a sauce that has been thickened by flour or another off plan thickener. This recipe is unique because it usesย Glucomannan Powderย (affiliate link). This amazingly versatile low carb thickener is made from the Konjac root. It is tasteless and calorie free. For an even added bonus, it can help keep you full longer and help you lose weight! I’d say that is a win-win situation! ย Learn more about glucomannan in my post here.ย

If you are a Trim Healthy Mama: These are an S – or Satisfying meal.

Because this is an S meal, you could make it with any type of ground meat you would like: Pork or Beef would be great in this recipe.

I love Chinese take out… I love Chinese food!

These do not make me a Trim Healthy Mama…

But thankfully my favorite part of Chinese food is the vegetables.

Here is my take on a Better than Take out – or Take out-Fake out Chinese Stir fry.

This Trim Healthy Stir Fry uses glucomannan to thicken it. This is amazing stuff if you haven’t tried it yet. You can read more about glucomannan here. It is a thickener that is gluten free, carb free, and taste free (so you can add it to anything!). You can thicken puddings, soups, or Trim Healthy Sir Fries.ย

Trim Healthy Mama’s For this recipe to be fuel pull, your serving needs to have one teaspoon of coconut oil in it or less. You can omit the coconut oil in the steaming vegetables phase to reduce some fat per serving. If you want this to be an S meal full of healthy fats, then don’t worry about how much coconut oil is in the meal and just enjoy.ย
