The Breakfast Debate & Banana Chai Fiber Oat Cups Recipe

These Banana Chai Oat Cups are amazing and nutritious to keep you feeling at your best! Of course, it contains our favorite super food; fiber. They’re easy to make and you can even save them in the morning for a nutritious breakfast. Because they say breakfast is “the most important meal of the day”, but is it really? Let’s discuss.

Is Breakfast as Important as They Say?

We have been made believe those who eat breakfast are generally more healthy than those who don’t.

BUUUT these statements are based on observational studies and not real science. Basically, those previous studies decided breakfast was the significant factor and ignored the real significant factor of lifestyle.

Actual Science Has Shown…

Generally, people who eat breakfast eat things like fiber (oatmeal, yogurts, breads). And by now, you should know a high-fiber diet reduces the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and weight gain. Which is all the things researchers decided what makes breakfast eaters healthier. Also, breakfast eaters generally have more active and health-conscious habits like exercising and drinking water.

While those who don’t eat breakfast, typically don’t have the same lifestyle. They are typically smokers and heavy drinkers. And yeah, those lifestyles lead to heart disease and numerous other health effects. So, our research leads us to believe breakfast does NOT determine if a person is healthy or not. 

In addition, we learned from our previous blog post, how fasting benefits the body. And we don’t mean not eating for a whole day, but more so simple intermittent fasting. But note, fasting isn’t for everyone. In fact, Registered dietitians encourage you to listen to your hunger cues more so than worrying about “the most important meal of the day”.

Let Fiber be Apart of Your First Meal

Whether you choose to break-your-fast, at 8am or 12pm, we want to focus on why you should include fiber with your first meal

Fiber is a complex carbohydrate that your body doesn’t easily digest. Which is good. This means high-fiber foods sit in your stomach longer than simple carbohydrates, like sugar. This is why you’ll more feel full after eating a bowl of oatmeal than a bowl of sugary cereal. 

And, let’s not forget the beautiful bathroom experiences we have when eating a high-fiber diet. Ahh…such a relief! 

The Recipe

These Banana Chai Oat Cups can be a great breakfast or snack at the time you feel is right for your body. They are packed with a ton of fiber from the oats and Naturlax! Our Chai Flavored Fiber Powder is what gives these oat cups their delicious flavor. They are great for adults and kids. So, pack it with your lunch or a child’s lunch.

Easy Recipes: Pumpkin Vegan Baked Oat Bars

🎃Jump to Recipe🎃

It’s time for all things Fall! We’re here to kick off the fall season with our Pumpkin Vegan Baked Pumpkin Oat Bars! As with all our recipes, these oat bars are packed with plant-based fiber to keep your gut healthy. First, let’s discuss why we love this nutritious recipe so much.

Pumpkin Puree: It’s Loaded with Nutrients

Yes, we added our fiber powder to this recipe but there is another ingredient in here that’s packed with fiber. Pumpkin puree. A can of Organic Pumpkin Puree contains at least 3 grams of fiber per serving [1/2 cup]! So, maybe you might consider the Pumpkin Latte? Just kidding, that’s filled with sugar, which is the opposite of fiber.

Anyways, organic pumpkin puree is high in fiber content! Plus, you can find 100% pure pumpkin puree that does not contain sugar! So, it’s keto and low-carb friendly way of increasing your daily intake of fiber. Pumpkin Puree is versatile for most diets but did you know it can help your constipated pets too?! Click here to learn all about the types of fiber you dogs and cats can consume.

Read on to see which fiber powder we used!

The Other Way to Use Fiber

As mentioned above, this oat bar recipe is backed with double the amount of fiber. So, not only will it keep your digestive system happy, but your children’s too! Try this recipe with kids and let us know what they think!

These oat bars are easy, nutritious, and delicious. Perfect to save for breakfast on-the-go or pack into your kid’s school lunch box…at home. 

Eat them as is or warm them up in the microwave for a warm and soft oat bar. 

That’s not all folks! We didn’t just use our fiber powder in this recipe. 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!

Yes, these Oat Bars are vegan! Of course if you’d like to use regular ol’ eggs, you can!  

This recipe is as easy as placing all your ingredients into a bowl, mixing it up, and baking!
This recipe has less than 10 ingredients that can be commonly found in any kitchen!

Vegan Baking Tips: 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 the rage because of certain diets, like cholesterol, vegan or because of allergies.

“Eggs are the second most common food allergy in infants and young children.”

Although, some children may outgrow this allergen, some don’t. Luckily, there is more than one way to replace an egg in baking and cooking. And with a lot more vegan products, finding a replacer that works for you has never been easier!

While there is more than one way to replace an egg, this is how we do it at Naturlax😎

But first let’s talk about how 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. Pure Psyllium Husk is a great alternative since it’s low in cholesterol, calories, and is a super nutrient!

Now this is what it does: When mixed with water, psyllium fiber transforms into a gel-like substance making it the perfect binding and thickening agent! Binding agents are great for heavier baking recipes like cakes, brownies, and cookies.

We recommend using our Pure Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder or Plain No Flavor Psyllium Husk Fiber Powder since they won’t alter the taste of your recipes. Keep in mind, our Plain No Flavor does contain our propriety blend of erythritol and stevia. While our Pure does not. The choice is yours!

But here’s a delicious tip: When making pancakes, use our Chai Flavored Fiber Powder as an egg replacer for a tasty chai flavored pancake! Plus, when you have fiber in the morning, you feel full therefore eating less!

Other Uses

Are you looking for another thickening agent for your sauces? Yes, psyllium husk can also act as a thickening agent for savory sauces and soups! Here’s how it does just that:

As mentioned earlier, our fiber creates a gel-like substance when mixed with fluids. So, when used in sauces, it will definitely thicken without adding extra calories! Here’s how our friend Jasmin used our product in her Firecracker Chicken dish!

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

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.
