That’s not all folks! There’s something really special about these oat bars. We used our Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder and water as an egg replacement. Check out our blog post to see how we do this!

Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder as Egg Substitues

➡️Jump to Recipe⬅️

Let us introduce you to the method of Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder as egg substitutes. Egg replacers are all rage because of diets like plant-based and ketosis.

While there are more than one way to replace an egg, this is how we do it at Naturlax😎 But first let’s talk about this works.

How it Works

Psyllium husk is derived from the plant genus Plantago. The seeds of this plant are what we use to create our psyllium husk fiber products. Only organic and natural products in a world full of artificial choices.

Now this is what it does: Psyllium Fiber creates a gel-like substance making it the perfect binding agent! We recommend using our Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder or Plain No Flavor Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder because they won’t alter the taste of your recipes.

Just mix 4oz of water to 1tsp of Fiber Powder. Stir until the mix thickens. Suitable to replace 2 eggs.

Check out our Vegan Baked Pumpkin Oat Bars Recipe to see how we used these faux-eggs.

Mixing our Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder with water will create a gel-like substance.

Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl

➡️Jump to Recipe ⬅️

Let’s be real with ourselves; we can all use a little more fiber in our diets, and you can’t forget the greens! Well, it’s just your luck because we crafted a recipe that brings you both with our Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl.🌱

Blended or Pressed Fruits

Blended your fruits still leaves you with their fiber and nutrients, unlike juicing.

Smoothies are so easy to make since you can use just about any fruits and greens you have in your own kitchen! BUT did you know blending your fruits and veggies keeps their fiber and other nutrients unlike juicing. It’s true! When you blend fruits and veggies you are still consuming their pulp and skin where a lot of the nutrients are. This gets lost when you juice your fruits and veggies. 

This isn’t to say juicing your fruits isn’t nutritious. They do have vitamins and minerals but if you’re looking for a beverage to be a meal replacement, smoothies are the better option!

At Naturlax, we always include fiber in our recipes because it’s a huge part of a well-balanced breakfast! Don’t underestimate the power of fiber. 💪🏻

Add all your fruits and veggies along with our fiber to create the perfect well-balanced breakfast!

Why You Should Start Your Day with Fiber

By starting your mornings with plant-based fiber, you are able to feel fuller for longer. And here’s why: fiber sits in your stomach longer because it creates a gel-like substance in your stomach. It slows down digestion and takes up more space in your stomach. Now, you are able to snack less on the donuts your coworker brought in. Including fiber into your breakfast helps in weight loss by avoiding the need to snack throughout the day. 

Another Great Ingredient

But wait, that’s not all there is! This bowl contains another great ingredient, and it’s 1 Original Flavor Yum Matcha ®Packet. That’s right, matcha but not just any matcha, Yum Matcha ®! Their matcha contains antioxidants for heart health and brain function! 

There are many ways to increase your daily intake of fiber, so here’s one way you can accomplish this with our Green Fiber Smoothie Bowl! 

Feel free to alter the recipe to your liking, but this is how we smoothie bowl.
