As a follow up to Saturday's post about my fitness journey and the personal changes I'm experiencing, today's post is about Vital Proteins and how I am using this as a supplement to compliment my healthy eating plan on the FASTer Way to Fatloss program.
Vital Proteins focuses on providing clean sustainably-sourced nutrition products that provide nourishing collagen, in turn, boosting our bodies ability to produce collagen. As we age, our bodies produce less collagen and Vital Proteins helps replenish what we have lost.
Vital Proteins has become a part of my every day life. I typically drink a protein shake or smoothie each day and I always add two scoops of the collagen peptides to add an additional boost of protein and of course to reap the benefits of the added collagen. Because there is no distinguishable taste, you can add the collagen peptides to anything...water, hot tea, coffee, juice, smoothies, soups, etc.
I feel confident that I am fueling my body with a wholesome clean product that has so many amazing benefits. Plus I have noticed that my skin has been much more clear as well (big plus in my book)!
Check out Vital Proteins when you have a moment...they offer a variety of nutritious products and I highly recommend that you give them a try if this sounds like something you would enjoy as well. They have a life long customer in me!
I also wanted to share one of my absolute favorite smoothie recipes as well...
ALMOND BERRY BLAST
1 cup of strawberries
1/2 cup of blueberries
1/2 cup of blackberries
1/2 cup of raspberries
1 small/medium sized banana
1 cup of fresh baby spinach
Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk - 1/2-1 cup (remaining liquid should be cold water...I usually do 1/2 cup of almond milk and 1/2 cup of water or fill to line on my NutriBullet)
Muscle Milk Low Fat vanilla protein powder
2 scoops of Vital Proteins collagen peptides
**I use my NutriBullet to mix all of my smoothies!
Let me know if you decide to try anything from Vital Proteins...I'd love to hear your thoughts!
As always, thanks so much for stopping by...have a great start to your week!
