Can Collagen help you Look and Feel Younger?

Have you heard about collagen yet? It is the NEWEST beauty and natural health craze – and I’m so glad that I learned about it now!

 

Watch This Video to Learn about Collagen:

 

What is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in our body… think about it like it is the glue that is holding everything together. Collagen is the sticky stuff to hold joints, skin etc. When we lose collagen we notice aging, more aches and pains.

There are many different types of collagen that our body can use and each has a different function.

 

 

I just recently started taking a collagen supplement that has 5 different types of collagen in it (most only have 1 or 2 and that just leaves out big benefits). PLus, it is keto and low carb friendly and tastes like a tropical fruit drink!

My first results were just that I started sleeping better… I also felt like I was way less achy and just was able to move easier (this was when I was 7 months pregnant too!). I’m really excited to continue taking it throughout my pregnancy as I have heard it can help with stretch marks too!

 

There are so many benefits to adding collagen into your daily routine… but I think for me helping keep my skin looking younger and more youthful is such a win-win!

 

Here are just a FEW of the incredible benefits:

 reveals younger, glowing skin
 reduces wrinkles
 improves joint health
 grows healthier hair
 boosts metabolism
 prevents cellulite/stretch marks
 improved heart health

 

 

What if getting in your daily collagen was as easy as sipping on this yummy, tropical fruit punch drink?

Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips with Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

Tell me if this sounds familiar…

 

You find yourself REALLY wanting a sweet snack but knowing that you REALLY don’t need all the sugar?

 

That’s like my whole life right now! Managing my tendency toward gestational diabetes means that I really can’t deal with sugar or carbs so I’ve been experimenting!

 

Here’s my latest creation!

 

Low Carb Cinnamon Tortilla Chips

4 Low Carb Tortilla (I LOVE this one!)
1 Tablespoon of Butter melted
2-3 Tablespoons of stevia blend
1 Teaspoon of Cinnamon

 

Directions

Brush melted butter on each side of tortillas.

Mix stevia & Cinnamon together.

Cut tortillas into 6 triangles each and dip each side into stevia/Cinnamon blend.

Bake at 350 degrees on baking tray covered in parchment paper for 10 minutes.

 

Cinnamon Pecan Cream Cheese Dip

8 oz of cream cheese softened
1 tablespoon of stevia blend.
1/4 teaspoon on cinnamon.
1 Tablespoon of chopped pecans.

 

Directions

Beat together cream cheese, stevia, and cinnamon until smooth.

Fold in pecans.

 

Note: The stevia blend I use is a cup for cup substitute for sugar (this one is a good choice if you want to try it!). You can use any sweetener you like, just sweeten to taste.

If you are in the U.S., I hope you and your family have had a wonderful 4th of July! We celebrated and had a lot of fun shooting fireworks and enjoying our friends and neighbors (and we slept in a bit this morning!)

What is great is that it uses low carb berries for a really great natural sweetener. This recipe is pretty versatile because you can use any berries you love and mix them up!

 

The girls hopped in the kitchen to help me whip together this yummy treat. After about an hour to let it chill, we all enjoyed a taste of the creamy “cheesecake” without any guilt at all.

 

I’m always on the lookout for a low carb treat that satisfies my sweet tooth!

Ingredients:

8oz Cream Cheese

1 Tbsp of “cup for cup” stevia blend
A couple drops of liquid stevia

1 cup of chopped strawberries

 

Directions:

1- Beat the Cream Cheese until creamy.

2- Add stevia blend, and stevia drops, vanilla, and salt.

Four Simple Ways to Drink MORE Water; Even if You Don’t Like Drinking Water!

It’s DAY ONE of my month long Fit Summer Challenge! I’ll be sharing daily content on Grassfedmama.com as well as my personal Facebook Page on how to not lose your momentum during the summer, while still enjoying yourself!

 

This week we are focusing on water, and today specifically WHY you want to drink more water!

PLUS FOUR ways to trick yourself into drinking more H2O {even when you don’t like water }

 

https://www.facebook.com/angela.r.parker/videos/10103275820426880/

 

Why do we need water?

Our bodies need water to function!

Did you know that our bodies are made of 75% of water? Every cell in your body need water to function properly!

 

You will have more energy when you are hydrated

You wouldn’t believe how many people reach out to me asking for help with energy. When one of the simplest ways to energize is just to make sure you have enough water.

 

You will Boost Your Metabolism

Because your body will have the water it needs, it will be able to work more efficiently, and that means a BOOST in your metabolism (and ability to burn more calories too!)

 

Water is an Easy Detox

I actually am not scared of the word “DETOX” but I know a lot of people squirm in their seats when they hear the word because they think it has to be harsh (or have bad side effects!)

But detoxing is just your bodies natural process of getting rid of anything that it doesn’t need.

 

Our kidneys are designed to help our bodies get rid of excess through our urine… but you need to make sure you are hydrated too!

 

Another way we detox is through our skin – YES, our SKIN!! 

 

Every time you sweat you are helping your body naturally detox… but the more you sweat, the more you need to replenish the water you are losing.

 

“So Remember… Water, Water, You have to Drink Way More Water than You Think!”

 

Drinking Water Helps with Misread Hunger Cues

Our body can get confused easily… between feeling thirsty and hungry – it really has trouble telling the difference.

 

If you are trying to limit your calories, or watch your portions, one easy way to start is just by drinking a large glass of water before your meals and snacks. This will help you not to overeat and make sure you are filling the need for thirst first!

 

 

What if I don’t like the taste of water?!?!

 

4 Ways to Add Flavor to Your Water

Fruit Infused Water is a great way to get a fruity taste with all the benefits of water! There are special fruit infused water bottles – or you can just fill a large pitcher of water with a few pieces of fruit and let sit overnight. You will LOVE all the combinations you find!

I love cucumber, mint, and lemon!

1 Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug

Chocolate makes everything a little better doesn’t it?

I’m always on the hunt for chocolate snacks that satisfy with my sweet tooth without overloading me on the sugar!

 

Note: If you didn’t know, I have struggled with Gestational Diabetes with each of my pregnancies, here’s some info on how I beat it naturally!

 

Given my history and just being honest with myself, if I don’t find sweet things (with chocolate hopefully!) that is satisfying I’m going to end up chowing down on cookies or ice cream.

 

Thankfully I have a new favorite (and SIMPLE) recipe!

 

Check out my recipe for a 1-Minute Chocolate Muffin in a Mug!

    The Day I Failed My Gestational Diabetes Test

    8 years ago… I was in my second trimester of my first pregnancy…

    Everything was going well…

    until I was 28 weeks and went for my gestational diabetes screening test.

     

    I thought “I’m the healthiest person I know!” I got this!

     

    But when my results came back that I had failed…

    I was crushed.

    I was shocked.

    I felt all alone.

     

    I needed a plan, but I honestly didn’t have any support system set up for myself.

    All the recipes I had were “healthy” but used grains, beans, fruits, starchy vegetables.

     

    Nothing I normally ate or cooked would work anymore.

     

    I sat at the kitchen table every night for two weeks and cried.

     

    Thankfully, now I have some (actually good!) low carb meals on the plan!

     

    This week (I’m 16 weeks pregnant now with my third baby), as I was sitting down at the table… instead of crying, I was meal planning.

     

    And it made me think… what is different here? 

     

    I’m in the same situation (albeit 8 years later!) and I possibly have the same diagnosis as I did 8 years ago, but this time…

    I feel empowered.

    I feel prepared.

    I feel healthy. 

     

    On my piece of paper I wrote:

    > Low Carb Tacos
    > Guacamole & Bacon Open Faced Burgers
    > Chicken Salad on Lettuce Wraps

     

    The only difference was now I had my tool box.

    I already have a pantry with products and staples to make healthy low carb recipes.

    I already know what to eat.

     

    Maybe you are thinking about changing your diet… but you feel lost – “What would I even eat?!?!” You may be asking…

     

    What if you had everything you needed to set yourself up for success right from the start?

     

    • Recipes
    • Problem Solving Tips
    • Inspiration

     

    Would that change how your experience went?

    Probably you would get better results too! 

     

    Listen to my story here and how everything changed for me:

     

    (function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = 'https://connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v3.1'; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

    💫 Flashback to 8 years ago… I was in my second trimester of my first pregnancy… Everything was going well… until I was 🤰🏼 28 weeks and went for my gestational diabetes screening test. I thought "I'm the healthiest person I know!" I got this! 🙌🏻But when my results came back that I had failed… 😱I was crushed. I was shocked. I felt all alone. What happened next changed my LIFE!

    Healthy Keto Iced Mocha Frappe

    It’s summer in the south and that means it’s HOT!

    Hot weather makes me want a cool treat, but since most of them are LOADED with sugar and other unhealthy options, I try to get creative.

    For example, what I used to get in the past from Starbucks has 36 to 50 Grams of sugar (depending on size). Yikes!

     

    So here’s a simple homemade frozen mocha that I love! And you end up with only about 3 Grams of Sugar per serving! Not to mention this home option saves you money as well!

     

    Ingredients

    * 1 Packet of Keto Coffee

    * 2 Scoops of Chocolate Greens

    * 6 oz of water

    * 4 oz Unsweetened Almond Milk (or whatever milk option you prefer)

    * Ice to preference

     

    Directions

    You simply blend the ingredients together and blend! I prefer my ninja blender for individual servings (but any blender should work fine!)

    You can either pour it over ice, or blend it to make a Frappe. Either way, delicious and healthy!

     

    Full video demo below!
