The Hype Around Collagen

Collagen powders have been popular for awhile now, but what are they? How do they work? And should you start taking it? 

What is Collagen 

The most abundant protein in our bodies, collagen is found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels and tendons. It gives our skin elasticity and aids in digestion. As we age, the collagen in our bodies deteriorates, so the older you are, taking a collagen powder may be beneficial! It also helps boost metabolism, reduce stretch marks and cellulite, improve leaky gut, and improves and strengthens hair, nails and teeth!

Almond Flour Chicken Strip Recipe

Image result for almond flour chicken tenders


I made this the other night in an attempt to indulge in some delicious classic chicken strips, but light on the carbs and unhealthy fat, and it was a success!


  • 1 lb organic chicken tenders
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2 tbsp flax meal
  • Spices of choice: I used S&P, garlic, paprika, dried parsley, and steak seasoning 


Preheat oven to 425. Mix dry ingredients in a shallow bowl, and crack the egg into another bowl, whisk it up


Hey everyone, Its Bryan again.  I had a great training session with Jason yesterday and I feel great today. Soreness is all gone! I am feeling stronger and looking better by the day it seems. I love it when I start seeing and feeling results!  What a great motivating factor when I am tired and dreading the next training session!
