Most of us need some gut repair, if you eat a S.A.D. (Standard American Diet), processed foods, most restaurant foods…

Homemade bone broth is the best for healing your gut, there is also good amino acids in collagen and gelatin which can be found in the store!

Vital Proteins makes a %100 pasture-raised beef gelatin dietary supplement. This along with bone broth has helped improve the health of my skin, hair and nails!

Dr. Mercola has a great article with way more info. on the health benefits of collagen.

Coconut oil or coconut cream from Tropical Traditions has MCT (medium chain triglycerides) has numerous health benefits, including helping aid digestion, can reduce your appetite, increase your energy and even help increase your “good” cholesterol!

 

Pumpkin Pie Protein Gummies

1/2 C. Pumpkin Puree

1 C. Coconut Cream Concentrate or ( 1/2 C. Expeller-pressed Coconut oil + 1/2 C. Canned Coconut Cream )

2 T. Raw Honey or Maple Syrup ( depending if you want sweet or omit if you’re diet is sugar-free )

1/2 T. Gelatin ( the one I used from Vital Proteins )

1/2 t. Vanilla

1-2 t.Pumpkin pie spice

1 drop of Thieves Essential Oil (optional)

In a mason jar or pyrex glass measuring cup or bowl combine coconut cream and honey. Set in a pan of water set at low heat to melt.

Then add puree, vanilla and spices. Whisk in gelatin a little at a time.

Pour into oil sprayed silicon molds, or mini muffin pans. Makes approx. 2 dozen mini muffin sized gummies.

Refrigerate till firm approx. 2 hours.

You can use homemade pumpkin puree by cutting the pumpkin scooping out the seeds (save those for soaking and dehydrating later) cooking in the oven on a baking sheet at 350º for about an hour. Scrape out the meat and puree in your blender. The only adjustment you may have to do is to strain out any excessive liquid. This is what I did last time since I got one pumpkin to grow in my garden. You can refrigerate or freeze any left over puree. I used some to make pumpkin ice cream, yum!
