Now that coffee has crept back into my life a little, it was inevitable that it would appear in some recipes. Added here in this Coffee Gummies recipe, it gives a brilliant taste to the gummie lolly, which ends up all creamy, sweet and bursting with flavour.
So how was your protein intake from last week’s blog? Are you getting enough or too much maybe? As promised though, here is my shake recipe that I use to boost my protein if it’s looking a bit on the low side…
I was thinking about my protein intake because it’s important for all kinds of things like your skin, connective tissue, muscle building or maintenance, makes hormones and enzymes. As a ‘fish only eating’ vegetarian, I wondered… “if I don’t eat fish every day, would I still be eating enough?”
So last week I mentioned one other food I was researching and experimenting with along with the psyllium husk disaster zone and that is gelatin.
So you mean that stuff that makes jelly and is made from horses hooves, cows and pigs carcass and everything else scraped off the killing room floor? Well…yes sort of and yes all animal. So if you are vegetarian or vegan, you might want to stop reading right now however as I have explained before, my approach to the food I eat is what feels good to me in terms of physical effects – energy levels, no pain, bloating, tiredness, nothing that is addictive to me, preferring anything that makes me feel refreshed, nourished, alive and sometimes that extends to animals and animal products like fish, eggs, occasional dairy and now gelatin.
