PB&J French Toast with Vital Proteins Collagen

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

* cinnamon

* 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.

Bon Appetite!

CVS Sheet Mask Haul and Deal!

Happy New Years loves! I hope 2018 brings all your dreams and goals come true!!

So this is my first ever post of 2018 and I couldn’t think of a better deal to post!

You know me, I’m always looking at the skincare products at CVS and go figure. They have had so many clearance sales on most beauty products. I came across a few Korean sheet masks that were only $0.75 cents! FYI they are called the Crème shop.

I would think it’s on clearance due to the holiday sets and scents.

I bought 3 of them just to try out:

An Elf’s Workshop Resveratrol Sheet Mask: Anti-age and plumb

*Resveratrol boosts collagen levels to keep skin firm and youthful.

B12 Complex Infused Face Mask: It brightens sullen skin, combats dry, cracked skin and reveals healthy radiance

*B12 is an essential vitamin known to reduce redness, inflammation, dryness and dullness of skin. It improves overall complexion and tone.

Limited Edition Fushion Sheet Mask Pumpkin Spice (Cinnamon): The Benefits of 2 masks in 1!

*Pumpkin’s superpower: Pumpkin enzymes help boost skin turnover to reveal a fresh face and a rejuvenated complexin.

*Cinnamon’s superpower: Ultra-absorbent. It neutralizes oily skin by soaking up excess sebum. It also helps thwart future breakouts and blemishes.

So really, think about it! You usually can find sheet masks for about 2.99 each and you’re only paying 75 cents?! I think this is a major steal! 😀
