Best Keto Cake Brownies

My experience with collagen is long standing and I have been using it in my coffee, smoothies and Keto dark chocolate cake brownies for years. One of the missing pieces in the American diet is nutrition gained from boiling bones that you often see in Asian cultures and ancestral diets. While most people are too busy collagen offers a shortcut for getting many of the same nutrients and it mixes in well into foods you are probably already eating and it is tasteless and odorless. Another great benefit is that it increases the protein of your meals which helps satiety to make it to the next meal. 

One reason I like Vital Proteins is that they are very transparent about sourcing healthy bones from grass fed animals. Bones from can concentrate heavy metals and pesticides so using grass fed animals is very important.  

Health Benefits of Collagen:

Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hides to ensure a natural, high quality, and sustainable source of this ancient nutrient.

  • Bioavailable: Digested and absorbed by the body quickly for maximum benefits.
  • Beneficial: Improves hair, skin, nails and joints, ligaments, tendons.
  • Easy to use: Soluble in hot or cold liquids, including coffee, smoothies and baked goods.
