COLLAGEN + BEET SMOOTHIE [VIDEO]

HELLO HELLO! So the health & fitness world has recently been talking about the benefits to both collagen & beets. As I read more & more articles, I thought about trying it myself. I love the collagen because it is TASTELESS!! So really you can add it to any smoothie for some extra goodness. The beets don't taste as "bad" as I thought. The fruit really helps to neutralize & I am used to it now. 

COLLAGEN:

The major pros to collagen protein is that it breaks down a lot slower in your body than a classic whey protein would. This keeps you fuller for longer. I often would feel bloated after having a whey protein shake because it was digesting way too fast. Collagen is also great for the elasticity & strength in your bones, hair, & skin.

From improving gut health & brain function to extending your energy, beets are a powerful food that you should try to incorporate into your diet. Some people even swear by taking beet juice shots in the morning instead of coffee because it is a healthier way to wake up their body! I saw the amazing benefits & figured I could add this to my morning smoothie! (Read this article for more information)
