Hello my loves and happy Wednesday!
I hope you all are having a great week so far!
It’s been a long while since I posted a recipe let alone never blogged about collagen.
I first was introduced to Vital Proteins a few years back at the Expo West in Anaheim, California as well as another blogger by the name of The Skinny Confidential (hi Lauren!)
Vital Proteins has so many different products on their website which includes collagen water, collagen mini powders, collagen creamers, immunity boosters, collagen lattes, collagen bars, matcha powders and even workout powders.
Benefits of Collagen:
Did you know collagen helps strengthen nails, hair, skin, bones and joints and as we get older, our bodies are not able to synthesize collagen on their own and a lot of our food intake doesn’t include collagen.**
How to Use:
Simply put into your waters, coffees, beverages and food recipes. The best thing is that this specific kind has no scent and can easily dissolve into water.
My PB&J French Toast Recipe:
* 4 slices of bread
* 1 scoop of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides
* 1 egg
* 1/4 cup of milk
* pinch of salt
* 2 tablespoons of butter or ghee
Spread peanut butter and jelly on the bread as if you were making a sandwich.
Whisk egg, milk, salt, cinnamon and collagen powder.
Gently place the sandwich into the egg mix and make sure you get both sides saturated.
Place 1 tablespoon of butter on the pan and wait for it to sizzle.
Using your spatula, place the sandwich in the pan and let it cook for about 3-4 minutes then turn over and wait a few minutes again.
With the other 1 tablespoon of butter, again place the butter in the pan for the next batch of french toast.
When it’s all said and done, sprinkle powdered sugar and some maple syrup on top.
