When I say ‘silly,’ you say ‘yum’!
Psyllium husk, my dear
friends fans, is pure soluble fiber. While oatmeal and other grains get lots of field time for their insoluble tenacity, and ability to stay in your gut and keep you full, psyllium works its way quickly down the field…but it takes a lot of players with him.
If you know what I mean.
But even more important than the improvement in my system I’ve noticed in adding a tablespoon to breakfast and bedtime snack, is how much FUN it is to play with.
It’s like a freakin’ fiber camel in your colon.*
(Seriously, this all happened less than 30 seconds after adding some homemade almond milk.)
—I had been sticking (
not a very good pun intended) pretty exclusively to either spiking it with cinnamon in the bottom of my bowl or mixing it with protein powder, almond milk, kefir, and the occasional banana, as a base for a strangely delicious cereal snack.
But more on that later. I’m all cheered out for now.*
