Before my life got crazy, I told y'all I wanted to share a few of my favorite things so here is the first of many to come! I love trying new things, and I love my friends.... so! When they like a product and tell me about it, I may research it for myself, but I'll probably give it a shot. If you know anything about me you know I love Amazon Prime... like live and die by it. I don't go to the grocery store because it is easier to make my meal plan, add the items to my cart, and check out. I don't get side tracked.... I don't buy the Little Debbies that catch my eye... you get my point. It is so easy to buy unnecessary items that either our meal plan or budget don't need when you're at the grocery store. So I swear by Amazon Fresh I mean they did just buy Whole Foods?!
Any way... so here is my latest find... who has tried this?!
I have linked it to Amazon so you can just click on the picture for more info! Jerry and I used it in our protein shake this morning and I couldn't even tell it was there!
Collagen is a long chain amino acid that helps our skin, hair, nails, joints and bones! Knowing that it decreases after the age of 30 and that the food we eat these days is no longer full of collagen this is a way to supplement it! So of course being a nurse I did a little research and holy cow... there are some crazy benefits! One article said "The oral supplementation with collagen peptides is efficacious to improve hallmarks of skin aging." HELLO SIGN ME UP! You can read more of that article here.
So why Vital Proteins?! I love that it is grass fed, pasture raised bovine hides and it's tasteless! It's also bioavailable, dairy free, gluten free, sugar free, paleo, and whole 30 approved. I am looking forward to more moisture in my skin, decreased wrinkles, and decreased joint discomfort!
I will be back in a couple of months to update you on how young i look.... until then, I would love for you to try it too !
on a side note... if you need some amazing protein powder to go along with it.... I LOVE the chocolate P96 from Plexus... We mix it with fruit, and my favorite... spinach, peanut or cashew butter, almond milk, and banana! You can find more info on it here... and hello its only 100 calories! We start every. single. morning with this! I would love to answer any questions you have... you can send me a message here or on Facebook!
