Do you want to know all about the benefits of gelatin?  Then pick up “The Gelatin Secret: The Surprising Superfood That Transforms Your Health And Beauty” by Sylvie McCracken of Hollywood Homestead.  This eBook not only teaches you all about gelatin (what it is, how it’s made, and different types) but also teaches you how to use gelatin in your every day life.

The book is in two sections – the first section of the book focuses on the sources of gelatin, how gelatin can be used, and gelatin’s myriad of benefits.  The second half of the book has recipes!

My personal favorite chapters of the book focus on using gelatin for skin health and for dental health.  I am really enjoying Sylvie’s recipe for “Squeezable Remineralizing Toothpaste.”  My teeth feel wonderfully clean and my mouth is super minty!




Now the best part – recipes!  I LOVED the recipes for ketchup, kombucha jello, and strawberry cream gummies!  Alas, I wish my pictures would have done the cute strawberry gummies justice.  At least they were super tasty!  I cannot wait to try some of the smoothie recipes and the recipe for custard!


Gelatin Secret Review

Another great feature of this eBook was being able to easily connect to recommended products and ingredients for recipes.  This was especially helpful with the toothpaste recipe.  Sylvie even linked to the best squeeze bottle to put the toothpaste in!


All-in-all, I really enjoyed this book and its plethora of useful information!

    Seriously, you have to use Instagram to enter??

    • Hi Kim,
      That is just one of the ways you can enter. There are 7 things you can do to enter, but you don’t have to do all of them. Each thing you do gets your name entered once. So if you don’t want to do the Instagram one, you can skip that one and do the ones you want to do to enter.

      • Teresa

        The other entries are not unlocked unless you follow on instagram.

        • grannyp53

          Yes, I can’t see how to unlock unless following on instagram. Darn,
