I love coffee. I have to start every morning with a cup or I don’t feel complete. It isn’t even about the caffeine for me, it is about the taste and the ritual. I love sitting down on my couch with a warm mug in my hand. It is my happy time and I don’t think I could ever let it go.
There is always something new out there telling you that coffee is bad or coffee is good. It is hard to know what is true and I think it is highly dependent on the person. Am I addicted to coffee? I would say yes. If I don’t drink it, I find myself getting a terrible headache. Since I don’t see myself kicking my coffee habit anytime soon, I figured it would be best to give my coffee a little boost. I found the best way to do this is with Vital Proteins Collagen Creamer.
Their collagen creamer is full of MCTs, which are a type of healthy fat found in coconut milk. Each serving has 10 grams of clean collagen protein (grass fed bovine). Collagen is proven to help with healthy hair, skin, nails, joints and bones. This creamer is also free of refined sugars, dairy, gluten and is Whole30 approved.
They have three awesome flavors including coconut, vanilla and gingerbread. I can say I have not been disappointed by any of them. You can order a tub of it or in single packets which is great if you get your coffee on the go. I am always that person at Alfreds (my favorite coffee spot) mixing in my creamer when I get my large Americano with almond milk and yes I do get some looks. The single packs are also perfect to bring on trips. Living in LA, you don’t realize that some places haven’t caught on to the dairy free milk trend. As someone who can’t do dairy and doesn’t love black coffee, collagen creamer adds the perfect flavor for my morning cup.
I know that so many healthy trends come and go but I believe this one is here to stay. I have seen and also heard of so many benefits of adding collagen protein to your diet. Anything that is good for digestion, bones, joints and hair and nail strength is good for me. We push our bodies to do incredible things and we pack our days to be nonstop that it is good to add a little extra nutritional support.
Yes, the thought of adding collagen from bovine is a little strange, but you would have no idea if you weren’t told. If you can have something that tastes great AND is giving you so many benefits, why wouldn’t you try it out. If you are not a coffee drinker, the creamer can also be added to matcha and even baked goods. Go ahead, give your coffee a boost, the benefits are totally worth it.
