If you aren’t using collagen peptides daily, I highly recommend you start! Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides is my favorite form of protein and I love using it in recipes because it’s odorless, tasteless, and easily dissolves.  It’s also great in smoothies, oatmeal, soups, or even mixed into coffee!
