Ok, so what’s up with the collagen peptides.
People are adding collagen to their recipes in hopes that they will have smooth glowing skin, Rapunzel-esque hair and their metabolism from high school. Athletes, or people who seriously workout, are also taking collagen to help with joint health and recovery. We fall under the skin/metabolism motivation category. 😉
I have been adding collagen peptides to my morning shake every day for about a month now. I’m not going to say I’ve noticed huge differences, but my eyebrows are growing in thicker; which is legit a miracle in itself. I also feel like the texture of my skin is beginning to improve. That being said, for me personally adding little extras like collagen to my shake mentally puts me in the mindset that I am starting my day the healthiest way possible, and I should probably try to keep it that way. 🙂
The nice thing about Collagen Peptides is that it’s virtually tasteless, so you can add it to anything! We love this Collagen Peptide Overnight Oat recipe for breakfast or a snack.
We had a little fun in the kitchen and wanted to show you guys how easy it is to make! Hope you enjoy 🙂
