About Jay Rob Psyllium Husks:

“Jay Robb Organic Non-GMO Psyllium Seed Husks are a great addition to your protein shakes as a means to get organic fiber into your diet.

Made With 100% Organic Non-GMO Psyllium Seed Husks (steam purified) 

Jay Robb Organic Non-GMO Psyllium Seed Husks are a great addition to your protein shakes as a means to get organic fiber into your diet.

Psyllium seed husks, also known as ispaghula, isabgol, or psyllium, are portions of the seeds of the plant Platago ovata, (genus Plantago), grows worldwide but is primarily grown and harvested in India. They are soluble in water, expanding and becoming mucilaginous when wet.

Psyllium seed husks are indigestible in human beings and are often used as a source of dietary fiber. They can be used as a dietary supplement to improve and maintain regular GI (gastrointestinal) transit. The inert bulk of the husks helps provide a constant volume of solid material.

Why Jay Robb Psyllium Husks are Different

Jay Robb Psyllium Seed Husks are Non-GMO, ORGANICALLY GROWN, fumigated with CO2, and STEAM purified. Conventionally grown psyllium (most psyllium that is on the market) is often sprayed with malithion, chlorethoxyfos, endosulfan, parathion-methyl, and /or triazophos and fumigated with methyl bromide. Jay Robb Non-GMO Organic Psyllium Seed Husks are naturally grown without chemical sprays, artificial fertilizers, or toxic fumigation chemicals.

Suggested Use: Add 1 rounded tablespoon to your daily protein shake, or mix in 8 ounces of pure water.”

In regards to the products being raw, I’ve learned this:

“The psyllium in the raw is a powder and it would not handle the same as the husk. Psyllium in the raw is the seed portion that is powdered and doesn’t expand the same way that the husk would. The husk expands and becomes “gelatinous” thus giving you the full benefit of what psyllium is, a fiber. The husk offers a better dietary solution when used to treat constipation as a bulk-forming laxative. It absorbs liquid in the intestines, swells, and forms a bulky stool, which is easy to pass.

While the seed (raw form) can do the same thing, the husk does this process a little more efficiently. Psyllium fiber is not broken down as it passes down the gastrointestinal tract and so psyllium has no nutritive value other than as a source of fiber.”

________________________________

My Thoughts:

In addition to doing full-on cleanses every so often, I like to do things daily that help facilitate my body’s natural detoxification process. Keeping my fiber intake high is a big part of that.

I like to incorporate this psyllium seed husk powder (it’s in a coarse, powder-like form) by simply adding it to smoothies to make them more filling and satisfying. I have also found it handy to make a drink with a tablespoon of this powder + water in the evenings to help fend off late night “cravings.”

There is virtually no taste to it, making it perfect to mix into smoothies of any flavor.

I love the fact that this product is organic, & non-gmo and can appreciate the explanation provided by Jay Robb about why the fiber is not raw. I suppose it makes sense that fiber (providing simply a means of aiding detoxification) doesn’t need to be raw to be effective in doing it’s job. It’s not meant to provide a nutritional value, which is the main reason for desiring a raw product. However, knowing that this product was once unheated, I can’t help but think: why not leave it that raw? It seems like there must be some benefit to consuming it raw–just like any other plant. I’m assuming it’s not raw mainly to increase the shelf life of it.

I’d recommend this to someone looking for a doable way to aid detoxification. It’s a small, simple change you can make that will help you clear the “digestive fog” from your system and get your body back on track.

Organic Coconut “Oatmeal” with Stevia & PB2

After a run last night I was craving something filling, but didn’t want to stray from clean eating. So, I created this treat off the top of my head! The picture might not do the recipe justice.

This warm bowl of

Organic Coconut “Oatmeal”

is delicious and decadent! As you might have guessed, there is no actual oatmeal in this bowl. Instead, there are several delicious substitutes. I will break down the process of making this to make it simple and understandable (these measurements are not exact because I eye-balled them until the concoction was the desired texture):

Start with a bowl

Put about half a cup of almond milk into the bottom of the bowl

Add a few tablespoons of PB2 (powdered peanut butter–85% less calories than peanut butter)

Add a few tablespoons of coconut flour

Add a sprinkling of both chia and flax seeds

Add a half scoop of Jay Robb’s protein

Add half a banana (sliced up)

Add 2 drops of stevia

Mix all of these ingredients together and add more almond milk or more coconut flour as needed (the consistency should be like pancake batter)

Next, since I’m not a fan of microwaving foods, I put this mixture in a skillet that has coconut oil in it (on medium heat).

I simply heat the mixture through until it is similar to warm oatmeal (stir it around often) and then put the cooked mixture in a bowl and enjoy with a spoon! Add cinnamon on top for extra richness and flavor.
