Have you heard of psyllium husk? I started seeing in on a few different friend’s Instagram and blog feeds (namely Sarah) and became intrigued. At first I didn’t know anything about psyllium husk except that it comes in the form of small flakes.
It was one of those things that I had on my “to check out list” for months but kept forgetting by the time I got to the store. I finally picked some up while shopping at Whole Foods with Paige the other week (the two of us shopping there is a dangerous thing!). Right away I noticed that it came in a few different forms: powder, capsules and whole husks. I opted for the whole husk form.
Paige knew a little bit about psyllium husk from what she had heard on some Jillian Michaels podcasts (apparently she raves about it). Jillian Michaels promotes it big time as a tool to make you feel “fuller” without taking in a ton of extra calories. She recommends mixing it with a glass of water and shooting it down. The idea of doing so didn’t really appeal to me so I first tried mixing it with some water and then adding that mixture to some Greek yogurt.
