WHY WE’RE LOVIN GELATIN

Whilst it may sound a little funky there are massive benefits to your health by including gelatin in the diet. Let’s make the process and rationale simple yes?

Gelatin is the collagen produced form bones, connective tissues and hides of animals, however there are vegan sources of gelatin for use in cooking too.  (More on those in another article coming soon).

It’s a rich source of protein. Proteins are made up of amino acids, and it is these amino acids which are so important for the growth, development and repair of our body. We don’t need to eat massive chunks of protein at each meal to find our nutritious sources, perhaps this is a lovely way to up your daily intake without thinking too much about it!

Gelatin is wonderful for gut health as a rich source anti-inflammatory nutrients, glycine and proline, but also has huge benefits to our skin, bone and liver too.

Easy ways to up your intake of gelatin to gain the beautiful benefits of this wholefood may be through:

  • bone broth, stock or within soup made from the bones of beef or chicken
  • slow cooking meats on the bone  – for the spring a slow cooked lamb shoulder is perfect, using the juices remaining for a gravy too
  • whipped into sweet (but not toooooo sweet) jellies or coconut milk and tossed through molten raw chocolate berries, nuts and seeds to make a heavenly edible mess (maybe a rocky road?) as featured in our pic above
