Today’s post comes from my friend, Sylvie of The Hollywood Homestead. I’m so excited to share a little bit about her story, her yummy recipe, and her amazing ebook, The Gelatin Secret. Seriously, if glowing skin, beautiful hair, and a healthy body is something you crave, be sure to check the book out! Take it away, Sylvie!
Ok, I confess. I’m probably a tiny bit obsessed with gelatin. Not that yucky stuff with food dyes and who knows what else from our childhood… the real stuff!
You see, my husband and I lost over 65 pounds each when we switched to a real food diet a few years ago and our family of 5 improved more health conditions than I can count in the process. But it wasn’t until we started focusing on nutrient density and including nourishing super-foods like organ meats and plenty of bone broth into our diet that our health improvements skyrocketed.
I started my intense gelatin research a few years ago when my oldest daughter needed spinal surgery for her severe scoliosis. While studying optimal nutrition for bone health and surgery recovery, it was clear that if there was one food you wanted to consume as often as possible, it was gelatin. This research is what led me to write The Gelatin Secret, because I knew this resource could help every family in countless ways and I just couldn’t keep this secret to myself!
The list of benefits of gelatin is astonishing! Did you know that regularly consuming gelatin and collagen work as “botox” for the skin? Gelatin can also help with:
- Healing from multiple allergies
- Food sensitivities
- Joint and mobility pain
- Chronic abdominal pain
- Abdominal tenderness
- Acne and blemishes
- Dull and fragile hair
- Tooth decay and sensitivity
- Brittle nails
- Stomach cramps, bloating and constipation
- Hormonal imbalance
- Rollercoaster weight gain
- Stress-induced insomnia
- Wrinkles and stretch marks
- Anxiety and fatigue
Luckily, adding gelatin to your diet and your kids diet is not only easy; it’s delicious!
This blueberry jello recipe is from my ebook, The Gelatin Secret, which goes into detail about how gelatin nourishes each part of our body and includes many recipes, both savory and sweet so you can jumpstart your journey to health right away.
