If you are in your thirties are you have not yet introduced Collagen Powder into your daily routine, then I highly recommend you do! Why? Because once we hit 30 our collagen levels drop 1% – 2% every year! Incorporating powdered collagen into your diet will replenish and boost collagen levels in the body, increasing collagen production and reducing those fine lines and wrinkles.
The Japanese woman pride themselves on their skincare regimes that help them maintain their youthful appearance. So it is no surprise that Japanese collagen is known to be the best in the world. Adashiko Collagen is produced in Japan and therefore has established itself at the forefront of the collagen industry in New Zealand.
I’ve been using Adashiko for over a year now and can confidently say it will be a staple in my morning routine for life. I shared a Collagen Boosting Juice Recipe last year which you can read here. I add Adashiko to my morning coffee every morning. I leave my tub right next to my coffee so I never forgot. I also sprinkle over salad or even roast veges, but today I used a few things I had lying around to create some berry breakie collagen balls.
I’m up at my beach house and my mother annoying took the glass part of the blender back to Singapore with her grrrr so I used a pestle and mortar instead and I actually think I like the texture better!
Add each of the following to the mortar one at a time, grind and add to a larger bowl.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 Hubbards Crispy Crunch Granola (my boss gave me half a bag as she knows I’m saving for my Europe trip and am being ridiculously cheap until I leave … so thanks G!)
- 1/2 cup frozen boysenberries (the consistency of these in a pestle and mortar is just like a sorbet!)
- 1/4 cup dried coconut
Mix in the bowl with 2 tablespoons of Pics Peanut Butter and 8 scoops of Adashiko and roll on a plate of extra coconut.
These are great for that 10am craving (I get these every day … and again at 3pm!) so pack a few in the staff fridge to stop the craving for the brownies from the cafe down the road!
I found the benefits of using Adashiko really interesting, so pop over to their website for more detailed info and reviews.
