So here’s the bad news - as we age, our body’s collagen production slows down, meaning that it’s more difficult to synthesize the protein we need.

But here’s the good news: it’s literally never been easier to supplement the protein we need on a daily basis, promoting the health, vitality and bodily recovery that’s so important for overall health and wellbeing.

Whether you add your BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein into your preferred beverage, your favorite recipe or a stand-alone sauce or condiment, we’ve made it super easy to source 100% of the body's protein requirement without the hassle or lingering taste.

Here Are Four Of Our Favorite Ways to Integrate Collagen Protein Into Your Daily Diet:

1. Mix It Into Your Mashed Potatoes

Rich in vitamins like C, B6 and manganese, mashed potatoes often get a bad rep. To be fair, when they’re drowned in gravy or covered in cheese, it’s difficult to make the case that they’re improving our life expectancy. However, keep those filler ingredients out and you’re left with a delicious dish, and an easy collagen delivery vessel. Try stirring some collagen powder into your mashed potatoes for an extra boost without affecting the taste.

2. Work It Into Sauces and Gravies

Try stirring your BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein into sauces and gravies. You can add it to the drippings, when making a meat-based gravy or when making a sauce out of bone broth, which has naturally occurring collagen in it already. (Um, Thanksgiving is right around the corner, ya’ll.)

3. Get Your Collagen Into Your Favorite Soup

Especially with the onset of fall (pumpkin soup! butternut squash soup! chili!), it’s a perfect time to get your soup fill. One way to make even the lightest of soups more hearty and nutritious is by adding collagen peptides for an extra boost of protein-packed nutrition without compromising the flavor. Simply stir collagen protein powder into your soup near the end of its cooking time on the stove. The powder should easily dissolve into the soup itself. If you find yourself with a few residual protein powder lumps or bubbles, all you’ll need to do is find a whisk or a spoon and gently work them into the mixture.

4. Collagen Protein Powder In Homemade Jelly?

Absolutely. One of the biggest reservations many people have when it comes to jams and jellies is their tendency to have a high sugar content. However, jellies don’t have to overload your daily sugar intake, and some naturally-occurring sugar per day is even a good thing. Furthermore, there are many compounds found in fruit that are only released when cooked, making jams unique in their ability to help you unlock hidden flavors and health benefits.

Especially if you’re making your own jams or jellies, why not add an extra protein punch? Add the collagen peptides to your jam mixture as you add the sugar or thickening agent, and let it sit as you otherwise would.

Other Unique Ways to Integrate Collagen Protein Into Your Daily Diet

There are so many ways that you can work BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein into your daily intake.

Imagine a delicious cross between pudding and Jell-O. That’s Panna Cotta, a light Italian dessert that offers many unique flavor variations. Since it contains gelatin, it already offers a little protein in itself, but you can exponentially increase protein intake by adding a little of your own protein into the mix! Simply integrate the collagen protein naturally as the mixture cooks.

You can also try adding collagen protein into your homemade puddings and smoothies. We’ve even built out a Guide to Collagen in Your Smoothies, for that very purpose. Or, you could get your protein supplement requirements out of the way at the beginning of your day, when you easily include it in your pancakes!

New Ways to Take Your Favorite Protein

No matter the novel ways you choose to integrate BUBS Naturals Collagen Protein into your diet, the results are always the same. You can improve your quality of life, look after your day-to-day health and pursue constant self-improvement, all by taking the time to incorporate a small supplement with powerful benefits into your daily routine.
