Collagen for the win
What is liquid collagen and why is it the big rage?What's the difference between plant collagen and animal collagen? I see collagen that is super cheap-isn't that good enough?
These are some questions that have come up lately and I want to try to address them. Most importantly, there is no such thing as plant collagen. Plants don't have collagen in them, only animals do. Collagen is what holds our body together.It is vital for youthful skin, healthy joints, overall gut health, and healthy nails and hair. As we age, our body produces less, thus we see more wrinkles, fragile nails, and increased joint pain.
Our Liquid Collagen, which comes from chicken sternum, has 7 patents and has won over 25 awards, because it is a patented Collagen /Hylaronic Acid(HA) mix. Our bodies also produce HA and it helps with keeping your tissues moist and lubricated. The combination creates the best results in our bodies. Our patented collagen/HA matrix is found in many of our products, so that we can improve our health from the inside , as well as topically. Reach out for more specifics to see what would be best for you and your needs.
I gave up carbs for a few years.. yes, like good ol delicious pasta, rice and bread.. No, I didn't get hard core and give up the carbs in other food like fruit, etc.. Who has time for counting all that stuff? I don't:)
I used to drink shakes,too..like JUST shakes.. maybe a snack and then dinner.. I mean, who has time to give up all the food?I guess I thought it was smart...ummmm.....
Fast forward to July where I started learning more about being healthy and eating well vs not eating. Someone told me carbs are actually GOOD for my body-I about laughed in her face..until I understood that they really are energy for the body!!
I also learned the difference between "good" carbs and carbs like the pic above...yea, french fries, white pasta and chips don't quite fit in the "good" carbs category. I started eating wheat bread and veggie pasta and was S O happy and stopped drinking shakes and GASP, I started losing inches like never before!!
Let's be real, though, sometimes, we want to eat crap. I had a TO DIE FOR gyro last night (I mean, it had onions and tomatoes on it, so that is healthy, right?!) and french fries... I didn't die , didn't gain weight and won't do it again for a few months. I am not indulging in any of the above snacks today-don't even know who is playing in the SB, to be honest!!
HOWEVER, if you are or if you like pizza , fries or other carbs once in a while, I have your back. Comment below with your best recipe or GIF of a yummy Super Bowl treat! I will enter ya into a giveaway for some goodness that will keep you covered!!
Remember, life is about moderation and enjoying food!!
