5 SIMPLE GELATIN RECIPES TO BOOST YOUR GUT HEALTH
What is gelatin?
Gelatin is basically collagen. The only difference is that it isn't soluble in hot water.
Whilst this does mean that it won't go great in your coffee, it means that you can use it to create unbelievably cool and family friendly recipes, very simply, that are spectacular for your gut health.
Gut health benefits of gelatin
Gelatin is very high in protein building blocks (amino acids) that are particularly beneficial for your gut health, and the health of all of the tissues in your body.
That's your skin, your joints, your muscles, your bones and your hair.
How to eat more gelatin?
Some foods are naturally rich in gelatin, like the skins, bones and connective tissues of animals. You could start eating more of the connective tissues or cooked cuts of meat, but these tend to be tough and chewy - not two words you'd probably want to describe your dinner.
You could invest in making high quality bone broth, but not everyone has the time to simmer bone broth for hours on end. Lucky for you, there's our Australian Good Gut Gelatin (grass-fed) that makes it easy to add more gelatin to your diet.
Here are 5 simple and delicious Good Gut Gelatin recipes to boost your gut health.
1. Wiggly Citrus Jello Cups
All you need is 10 minutes, grapefruit juice, orange slices, good gut gelatin... and in just a short time, you'll have a great gut friendly gelatin recipe. Not only are these wiggly jello cups great for adults, they're a healthy and fun option for kids as well to get their anti-inflammatory protein in.
2. Good Gut Sour Berry Gummies
These are such a quick and easy gut lovin' snack to whip up and they use only 5 ingredients. Gelatin is easy to digest & powerfully restores the lining & function of the gut, as well as being great for the skin, hair, joints, bones & nails.
3. Vanilla Marshmallows
Marshmallows are not only insanely delicious but using good gut nutrition proteins like collagen, gelatine and l-glutamine will speed up the rebuilding and strengthening of your digestive lining, and reduce inflammation in your gut.
4. Gut Healing Chocolate Fudge Gummies
Regenerating your gut health doesn't have to be boring. Au contraire (that's French for on the contrary - it's best to sound French when cooking after all).
We counter, that it should not be boring. No one likes boring.
Everyone likes chocolate gummies. You can trick your coffee guests or family into thinking aren't healing their gut whilst enjoying your "secret ingredient" gummies. Watch their face when you tell them it's collagen (gelatin is basically collagen).
5. Golden Gut Lovin' & Anti-Inflammatory Gummies
These gummies are essentially gut loving gelatin "lollies" with the addition of the anti-inflammatory powerhouse turmeric. What we’re after in turmeric root is curcumin or curcuminoids, which are the compounds possessing anti-inflammatory properties. Ingesting turmeric with black pepper helps our bodies extract and absorb more of the curcumin from turmeric. These homemade gummies are easy to make, contain only a handful ingredients and use the gut-healing superstar, gelatin.
