Who needs collagen? You do!

Everyone does. Besides the fact that it is the most abundant protein in your body, it’s important for your bones, skin, muscles, tendons, and ligaments.

And as you age, your body lets you know that you need more collagen in the form of less skin elasticity, joint flexibility, and more wrinkles.

What’s a good sign that your collagen levels are high? Soft, smooth, and firm skin. 

If you want to add more collagen into your diet, then we’ve got you covered. From bone broth to muffins, we’ve got something for everyone!

6 Collagen Recipes

  1. Slow Cooker Bone Broth

Ingredients

  • 2 carrots (chopped medium)
  • 2 celery stalks (chopped medium)
  • 1 medium onion (chopped medium)
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 3.5lb beef or chicken bones (or combination of both)
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • Water

Instructions

  1. Place the bones in your slow cooker. The bones should fill up about ¾ of the slow cooker.
  2. Chop your veggies and garlic (no need to peel). You can also add veggie scraps,  and crushed (rinsed) egg shells into your slow cooker. Don’t worry you’ll be straining these out before consuming the broth.
  3. Fill the slow cooker with water (only enough to just cover the bones). Season with a generous amount of salt (about 1 teaspoon). 
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar (you won’t notice the taste).
  5. Cook on low for 12-24 hours. (You should know the broth is done when it is a rich golden brown and the bones are falling apart at the joints).
  6. Strain the broth through cheesecloth or a strainer and cool. A good broth will usually have a layer of fat on the top, and will gelatinize when thoroughly cool. Remove the fat with a spoon and discard.
