Incorporating a new habit or adding a new step into your daily routine can be challenging, especially after the initial rush of excitement and motivation wears off. Listen, we get it...it’s easy to stick to a new routine for about a week, so how can we incorporate small changes to ensure the new routine sticks? Well we can start by making small changes daily that begin with something as simple as adding a collagen supplement to our diet.
By incorporating collagen peptides into your daily diet and routine, you can feel confident that you are taking a small step each day that will result in big changes to your overall sense of wellness.
Here are 4 easy ways to incorporate collagen into your diet and routine:
1. Adding Collagen to Your Morning Beverage
What is the first thing you do each morning after waking up and doing a quick morning scroll on your phone? For me, it’s coffee...that is why I keep my Collagen Hydrolysate right next to my coffee maker. By adding 2 scoops of unflavored collagen, you can enjoy a cup of coffee with the added benefits of collagen but without changing the taste of black coffee. If you enjoy coffee creamer, then maybe add KETO Collagen or even give a flavored collagen powder a try. You can throw out your coffee creamer and replace it for a delicious alternative with added benefits.
2. Adding Collagen to Chia Pudding/Overnight Oats
Remember when overnight oats and chia pudding we’re all the hype? Turns out, they never stopped being “a thing,” in fact, recipes have gotten even better, including ingredients like collagen peptides! With flavored and unflavored options, adding collagen into your chia pudding or overnight oats can be the perfect solution to your busy schedule. Want to know one of our favorite recipes?

3. Baking and Cooking with Collagen
Collagen is great to cook and bake with because it is naturally flavorless, odorless and colorless. One of the most common reasons people might choose to cook with hydrolyzed collagen is because it does not taste like anything, so you can literally add it into any recipe without jeopardizing the flavor. On the other hand, if you want to use a flavored collagen powder like Chocolate or Vanilla Collagen Hydrolysate, you can utilize the flavored supplement to add a little something to your pancakes, waffles, muffins or other baked goods!
Collagen peptides and other collagen protein powders are heat-stable and will dissolve completely in both hot and cold liquids, making it perfect to cook with. The amino acid bonds in Collagen Hydrolysate are broken down further into peptides, dipeptides and tripeptides making it easily dissolvable in liquid before baking as well as easily digested by the body.
4. Collagen-Packed Smoothies
One of the best ways to incorporate collagen peptides into your morning routine is by adding a serving to a delicious smoothie! Smoothies allow a person to consume more fruits, veggies and nutrients, all at the push of a button. Smoothie recipes are great because you can experiment with a ton of healthy ingredients that you may not have thought to include otherwise. For example, you can add spinach or kale to a berry smoothie for a nutrient-dense smoothie and never even know it’s in there! But why stop there? Adding 2 scoops of flavored or unflavored Collagen Hydrolysate to your already-healthy-and-delicious smoothie, will just amplify the benefits of the smoothie. Making a smoothie, like this delicious Kale Smoothie, is a simple way to increase fruit and vegetable intake, all while reaping the benefits of collagen peptides.
Well, there ya have it! Four easy and delicious ways to incorporate collagen into your diet and daily routine. If you are looking to transform your daily routine to fit a more healthy-lifestyle, small changes are the place to start. They say it takes 21 days to form a new habit so if you can incorporate just ONE of these methods into your daily routine, you are well on your way to reaping the benefits that come with daily consumption of Collagen Hydrolysate.
