Vital Proteins is something that has made an incredible impact on our family’s health- we’re honestly so thankful for their products! Of course we keep Vital Proteins Gelatin on hand for whipping up Superfood Pudding and Healthy Gummy Worms, but the real stars are the things we use every single day to improve our health. Here are our our favorite must-have products!
Number one, without a doubt is the Collagen Peptides! I put this in my beverages every single day, and often multiple times per day. This collagen is available in a canister (I keep one at home and one at work) and individual stick packs (perfect for my purse and travel).
As a protein, collagen contains significant proportions of the amino acids proline and glycine, which are harder to find in other protein sources. We specifically like and use Collagen because it quick-dissolves into liquid, unlike gelatin (which has the same health benefits) but which only dissolves in hot water and hardens over time.
We wrote epic tome’s about why we love it (i.e. gut health, hair, skin & nail health). You’ll find more info on WHY you might want to add collagen to your diet, plus all things we like to use it in –> in this post!
Collagen Veggie Blend
This is a brand new product, developed by none other than our good friend and nutrient density geek, Dr. Sarah Ballantyne (The Paleo Mom)! This is the same collagen you’re used to, but with the added benefit of nutrient-rich, whole organic veggies & fruits – 4 total per serving!
While it does taste like green juice, I LOVE that it isn’t sweetened with anything (other than the natural sweetness from the fruit that is in it). You can mix it with water, or blend it up in your favorite smoothie recipe! We recommend you try it with frozen fruit, a handful of ice and 1-2 cups of your favorite liquid (almond milk, coconut milk, and water).
Our favorite recipe is:
- 1/2 frozen banana
- 1/2 cup ice
- 1 serving Vital Veggies
- 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- optional: 2 TBS unsweetened cacao powder
While the color leaves much to be desired, this smoothie is WAY better than it has any right to be, given the servings of vegetables (3 servings veg, 1 fruit, 20g grass-fed collagen). Now THIS is super fuel!
Beef Liver Capsules
We also use Vital Proteins Liver Pills. It’s the perfect way to get the power of liver without the taste and preparation. Nutritious and convenient for everyone! It’s a whole food source that can be sprinkled on other foods, added to smoothies, or simply swallowed in the middle of the day for an energy boost.
Even if you don’t mind the taste of liver, it’s a fantastic supplement form for those who may need to heal or want an extra nutritional boost!
