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!

My Recipe:

I had chosen to get the Beefless Tips but at the same time, I didn’t just want to eat that. So I got creative and here’s what I came up with!

Paramesan Pasta and I  sauteed veggies (including red bell peppers, spinach, brocolli, kale, green beans and garlic) with the Beefless Tips. Oh and I added a little Korean BBQ sauce to the veggies! I wanted to add some color to my dish so I added a cucumber, some colored cherry tomatoes and black olives on the side.

My Review:

I personally liked it because I added flavors to it. It couldn’t come in a better time for me! It being Lent as well, it was the perfect time to get chosen for this mission. It really does cook really quick, mine only took about 4-5 minutes. It’s easy to make and healthy and especially time efficient! Especially for those times that you don’t have enough time to cook a meal.

Spicy Asian Wings

Hi loves!

I wanted to do a little Throwback Thursday for you!

Even though I posted this a few years back, I think it’s worth it to bring it back! I still make this a few times a month!

Shout out to Village Bakery for reminding me of this post!

I figured I would try something new out and post a few recipes that I love.

I tried making this spicy Asian wings sauce just for fun and ended up, I love making it now! It’s fairly easy and quick.

FYI: I usually just eyeball the measurements of the ingredients.

Ingredients:

1 lemon

1 Tbsp Sesame Oil

1 tsp rice vinegar

1/2 tsp of molasses (I used black)

1 Tbsp Kikkoman Roasted Garlic & Herbs Marinade (you can just use soy sauce)

1 Tbsp Pepper Sauce (I used Kakadu Wild Fire Pepper Sauce)

1 Tbsp Lawry’s Mexican Chile Limon marinade

1 Tbsp Sweet & Spicy Chili Dressing

1 Tbsp Sriracha (this stuff is amazing!)

Black Pepper and Salt

Sesame Seeds

Garlic Salt

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat the oven at 375 degrees.

2. Mix all wet ingredients first then the dry ingredients. Mix all together.

3. Place aluminum foil on a tray. Spray on the foil a non-stick spray or butter so the chicken doesn’t stick to the foil.

4. Save half of the mixture into another bowl.

5. Dip the chicken wings into the one bowl of mixture. Turn to the other side to let it marinade for a 10 minutes.

6. Transfer the chicken wings to the tray leaving some room in between the wings.

7. Place in oven for 1 hour.

(Optional)

8. When it’s ready and cooled down, you take the other bowl of mixture and dip the already made chicken in it.

9. Relax and Enjoy!
