I’ve tried to crust-less quiche a few dozen times with heavy cream, light cream, regular milk, coconut milk, almond milk, a variety of cheeses, and each time it came out too fluffy, dry, or just plain blah. Cue the Collagen. The acid from the cottage cheese activate the binding properties of collagen and combined with eggs creates a creamy decadent quiche without all the extra calories (and adds 19 amino acids and proteins!)
When I thought about the Traditional Sweet Potato casserole, I wondered what it would look like to combine high fiber and delicious sweet Pumpkin with equally high fiber but lower sugar Spaghetti Squash, and amp up the protein and fat balance of the dish with luxurious coconut milk, and grass fed butter or ghee and a few scoops of collagen powder.
I wanted to see if I could challenge the normal super carby pizza version for one that would make my body feel good, look good, but be just as tasty and satisfying as the original. Like many of my savory dishes, I’ve replaced the use of alternative flours like almond or coconut with CB Supplements collagen powder.
Who needs Popeye’s or Chic-fil-a when you’ve got this?! Tender chicken with sweet & crunchy green beans? Yusssssss!!! This can be modified for a proper 5:1, paleo, low carb, keto-friendly skillet chicken recipe. It is crazy easy to prep and cook. The chicken and green beans are cooked in one skillet for easy prep and clean up!
The problem with Chinese takeout in America is that it’s laden with LOTS of sugar, sodium, calories, carbs, msg and processed flours. By making just a few modifications to the traditional recipe with alternative nutrient-rich or ingredients we get a recipe that is DELICIOUS, simple, satisfies that sweet and savory tooth, and keeps potential bloating at bay.
I miss waffles. Not because I felt great after eating them (a typical waffle with syrup contains 700-1,000 calories, over 100g carbs, 70g sugar…YIKES), but because I loved the texture, crunch, and heft! So I played around with a few collagen+waffle recipes and came up with one that makes me do a little happy dance, but doesn’t KILL my health goals!
