Collagen… When there’s not enough time for bone broth!

by Joyce Montejo

In my perfect world, I would make everything from scratch. This has been one of my huge battles, because as perfectionistic as my personality is, I have had to accept that I don’t live in a perfect world!

We have a large family, side businesses, and lots of things that keep our family on the go. I try to make as much as I can from scratch and implement things like bone broth, but I have learned to take some shortcuts too! Collagen has been one of those shortcuts and the more I use it, the more I love it!!! I literally have been adding it to everything! Once you learn how easy it is to add the great benefits into your everyday lifestyle, I bet you’ll be adding it to everything too!

I am famous for getting up in the morning and doing a million things before I realize too many hours have passed and I haven’t taken in any protein. This is one of my favorite ways to use collagen, because I make sure I get some goodness in my first drink of the morning.

I usually start off with some warm lemon water and after that I have either a Cinnamate, an herbal vitamin and mineral blend, or coffee. Here’s how I incorporate the collagen. This is my version of Bulletproof coffee or Cinnamate.

1 cup of coffee or Cinnamate

1 to 2 scoops of  hydrolyzed collagen (Depending on whether or not I am eating with it.)

1 spoonful of coconut oil or MCT oil

Stevia or Preferred Sweetener

I then whiz this in the blender. The oil creates a foamy creaminess that allows me to skip any kind of creamer, or you can add some in.

Wondering about the benefits of collagen? Here are just a few taken from Perfect Supplements blog. There is a great series of articles, including benefits, differences between collagen and gelatin, and the science behind collagen.

Improve Skin Health

Promote Younger, Firmer Skin

Support Joint Health

Improve Gut Function and Digestion

Keep Excess Inflammation in Check

Build and Restore Muscle

Support a Healthy Metabolism

Keep Appetite In Check

Promote Healthy Brain Function

Promote Deeper Sleep

As I am looking for ways to improve my health, the goal is always to feed my body with the nutrients it needs to function properly. as well as repair. Not to just treat a problem, but to provide fuel to increase overall health. Since I can’t manage to have a big mug of bone broth with every meal, I use the collagen to fill in the gaps.

Some of my other favorite ways to use it are mixed in Vital, a cup of warm tea, or a smoothie.
