*Extract from MY NUTRITION MENTOR by Liv Kennedy
It’s not a typo. Not Jelly Tips or jelly and ice-cream (unless it’s coconut nice-cream). Jelly is simply made from gelatin and 100% fruit juice. All the goodness comes from gelatin. Gelatin is made by boiling animal bones, cartilage and skin to extract the collagen. Collagen is an important protein that connects muscles, bones and skin in animals and humans. Gelatin boasts all of the same benefits as collagen because they contain the same amino acids.
Keep squares of jelly in the fridge. When you feel like something sweet, grab a piece of jelly. Eat about 5-6 cubes every day. You can’t overdose on gelatin. You’re more likely to overdose on fructose in the fruit juice. This is the only time fruit juice is recommended. #healthytakeaways
Do you have leaky gut, joint pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, or are you recovering from an injury?
How about poor-quality skin, hair or nails? If yes, incorporate bone broth, gelatin and/or collagen.
Bone broth can be homemade or bought in pouch/powder form. Homemade or fresh pouches are best. Powder is the next best option, it is freeze-dried. Add to cooking including soups, stews/casseroles, risottos, and cooking grains. Use gelatin powder to make homemade jelly and even add to smoothies.
Collagen powder is perfect in any drinks, it dissolves nicely into smoothies and hot drinks.
Even if the answer was no, bone broth, gelatin and collagen can still be consumed for good health.
