4 Tips for Cooking with Glucomannan

4 Tips for Cooking with Glucomannan

I love glucomannan. It is one of my new favorite additions in my kitchen. It is versatile for so many uses like thickening gravy to making a wonderful milk shake.

Glucomannan is an amazing addition to your diet to help with weight loss, blood sugar levels, and improve HDL cholesterol levels. I’ve shared why I love glucomannan in this post: “What is Glucomannan?” Today I’m going to share my Tips for cooking with glucomannan in your kitchen.

1. Store your glucomannan in a shaker.

You can use an empty salt shaker or anything that has tiny holes to help control how much glucomannan comes out at one time. I’m actually using an empty nunaturals stevia shaker for my glucomannan. read more

Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake

This Low Carb Broccoli Tuna Casserole Bake is a special request for my dad. He loves tuna casseroles and is really trying to eat healthier these days along with our whole family. I made a similar recipe for Thanksgiving that was just a broccoli casserole. This adds in some great protein from the tuna (or salmon) to get good Omega-3 fatty acids into your diet.

I love broccoli. I love it in casseroles, in stir-fries, and as a simple side dish. Broccoli is so healthy for your too, full of vitamins and minerals. 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.  read more
