Default psilliium hull source

I highly recommend Mountain Rose Herbs (mail order out of Eugene Oregon) as a source of high-quality, organic & reasonably prices psyllium hulls and much, much more. I've been ordering from them for several years, always great service & outstanding quality.

I doubt it, but I'll ask anyway... can I get psyllium hulls at Walmart or my local grocery store? Barring that, is there any ingredient I can substitute for it? Gizmo wants a cracker.

These crackers continue to be amazing. I love them with peanut butter, with cheese, baked with sweetener and cinnamon and spread with cream cheese... NOM!

One thing that made a big difference for mine was using Psyllium Powder instead of Psyllium Hulls. It really soaked up the full 2 cups of water well and baked up nice and crispy in about 45 min per side, give or take a bit depending on how thick I make them.

Lunch a couple of days ago was 2 crackers with an oz of cream cheese divided over the two sprinkled with a bit of erythritol and lots of cinnamon. Yummers!

Optimist Pat & Shanny, thank you for the help.
Pat I finally got mine right. Stuck it back in the oven and its delicious. Also smells good. It was a bit funny soft and am glad you encouraged me to rebake.

Same here. It's a bummer! After a year and a half, I'm resolved to this way of life. But I came to it kicking and screaming, so to speak.

I will have to say, though, that it's all worth it. I don't know anyone else who eats as well as we do.

VeeJay, you're right. I guess it has its good moments. Ive lost a few kg and need to lose 3-4 more to get my ideal weight, so for that too I am pleased. Havent really given up on the 'kicking & screaming bit, but it is getting better especially after I got the crackers right. At least now I have something for my cheeses and love it with peanut butter. I had two crackers for dinner, too lazy to cook. we have a public holiday today, so Im out to lunch & a spa treat. Its women's day in honor of the women who marched/protested against the pass laws in 1956. So women here treat themselves on this day

A little tip my mother gave me was to put all my flours, mixes, etc. in the freezer overnight. This kills any bugs/unhatched eggs. I leave everything in its original packaging, wrap in a plastic shopping bag, just to make sure moisture doesn't penatrate it, then remove the next day. I have kept certain items over a year and never had any problems with those pesky critters!

I was purchasing my sesame seeds at walmart in the spice section and paying $3.69 for 1/2 oz. for the name brand (McC). Realized recently at the asian market-if you have one nearby, I purchased 1 pound for $3.99. I nearly fainted thinking of all the money I could have been saving! Hope this helps some of you out.
