Sugar supposedly activates the same memory centres as heroin; that’s why it’s difficult to stop once we start eating it. This warm Konjac Rice Pudding by bestselling author and online recipe star Dr. Steve Gundry contains organic sweetener Xylitol that tastes way better than stevia and is gluten-free fibre and protein-rich too.

Not only is the guilt-free Konjac dessert tasty and simple to make, it’s also good for our prebiotics. Konjac is the next big thing in nutrition-dense cuisine. Great for the skin, great for gut health. Even Victoria Beckham swears by it.

The fibrous Asian root is used to make noodles, spaghetti, rice, flour, jellies and even natural sponges. It’s said to be good for you whether you eat it or use it as a beauty product for ‘glowing’ skin or silky hair.
