We have not yet reached Peak Bone Broth. How do I know this? Because every week it seems that we all have more options to conveniently get the nourishment only found in bone broth. Here comes something amazing: single-serving sticks from Vital Proteins, made from nothing but dehydrated bone broth from pastured chickens. They make everything so gosh-darn easy there are basically no more excuses for not feeding your hungry tissues. Take this packet, empty into a glass with cool water or nut milk or juice or whatever you fancy, from glass to blender or soup pot. Enjoy and nourish.
Just how easy is it to add the vital nutrition of collagen to your diet? Even easier now, thanks to Vital Proteins. You have no more excuses, really. None! This is awesome and wonderful news for anyone who needs to keep themselves healthy. And that's all of us. These portable sticks start with free-range chicken bone broth, dehydrated down to a powder useable by you in your everyday life.
So what does it taste like? Not much, and that's the beauty of it. If you don't care to consume red meat products, this collagen powder is your perfectly poultry-based solution. But both varieties, chicken and beef, are so mild in flavor that they are practically flavorless. This makes them perfect for any smoothie, recipe, or beverage whether sweet or savory. It goes with everything, including your busy life in those easy little packets.
From Vital Proteins: "Our USDA organic chicken bone broth is crafted with bones from free-range chickens and is simmered slowly to extract maximum nutrients. The result is a pure, nourishing broth that is packed with 9g of collagen protein, and other vital nutrients. With its natural taste, it is convenient to use and mixes well in water, savory beverages, and your favorite recipes. It’s great for digestion, supports the immune system, and helps promote overall health."
Here are just a few of the benefits to bone broth collagen:
Ok, so you've got some bone broth powder here. Why is that awesome? Glycine, baby, glycine. It's one of the 20 amino acids and it is sorely lacking in the modern diet. It's why bone broth is so great for us. It's why natural gelatin and connective tissues that break down oh-so-slowly when you crock-pot a roast or oxtails make that dish delicious beyond belief. We've been trained to think that only fat is satiating and rich, but tell that to a thick stew full of dissolved collagen.
So why do we need collagen? When we get older (basically, anything well-past high school), the production of collagen begins to slow down and cell structures start losing their strength. Collagen provides the building blocks for skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones and joints. Supplementing with collagen is a vital way to help your body rejuvenate and stay youthful.
With collagen protein, you can add it to any kind of smoothie on the planet. Kale smoothie, fruit smoothie, Liz Wolfe's liver smoothie (Google it, really) - go wild. Add it to soup. Add it to your morning yogurt bowl. Go crazy.
How about a recipe from Vital Proteins themselves? This tea is as wonderful on a cool night as it is on every slow-starting morning.
