PGX Breakfast Taco Recipes

PGX (PolyGlycopleX) is a patented complex super fibre made up of 100% natural, highly viscous polysaccharides. When taken with meals, PGX expands in the stomach over a 30-minute (or longer) time frame. This process creates a feeling of fullness (satiety) by absorbing water and filling the stomach while slowing digestion. This keeps blood sugar from rising too high after meals thereby curbing the body’s hunger cravings throughout the day.

Add in cilantro and lime juice; blend for 1-2 minutes or until smooth.
