Like most of the world, I love coffee (or some sort of hot beverage) and that is something that is part of my morning, NO MATTER WHAT. I am going to make it, I am going to drink it, it's definitely happening. More often than not, I also drink my coffee black. If you've ever tried adding whey (or pea, egg white, brown rice, etc) protein to black coffee, you know how gross it is. It doesn't dissolve well, it clumps, the taste is overpowering, it's just nasty. All those things made me give up on protein powders for a long time and try to eat it only from real food sources only. This can be VERY hard if you are trying to get almost 1 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight. That's a lot of food to eat! During that time, I am pretty sure I noticed a loss in muscle mass because it was just so hard to eat that much protein from real sources without constantly cooking or sitting down for a real meal. We all know that sitting down and eating is hard to do 3+ times a day!
This brings us to the amazing supplement that is collagen peptides. You might end up liking it so much that you buy it in bulk at Costco like I do! Instead of having to make a special shake as you would with a typical protein powder, all you have to do is add the collagen peptides to your daily cups of coffee. The collagen dissolves so smoothly and gives you (almost) NO weird taste. I say almost because there I feel there is a slight taste when I add two scoops (a full serving) to ONE cup of coffee, but if I only add one scoop to that ONE cup of coffee I don't notice a taste at all. This means that your first cup of coffee has one scoop, your second cup has the second scoop. From those two cups of coffee (that you were going to drink anyway) you get 20 grams of important muscle building protein in your diet with no extra time required. Try it out, there's even single serve packets! You will love how filling it is and your growing muscles will thank you!
