Being gorgeous on the go…

is easier than ever, thanks to these new individual packets of Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins.


The simple habit of taking Collagen Peptides every day has improved my skin dramatically.  It is firmer now, at age 50, than it was ten years ago.

It’s also great for your nails, hair and connective tissue.   And now you can just throw a few packets in your purse or overnight bag so you can use them anywhere.  No excuses.

Collagen Peptides are tasteless and dissolve easily in hot or cold beverages.  They are a highly bioavailable form of collagen, which is important for the health of all of our connective tissues.

I realize that does not sound super exciting.  But firm, healthy skin?  That’s exciting!

Here’s a list of Collagen Peptide benefits from Vital Proteins:

Promotes youthful skin, healthier hair, and stronger nails

Helps keep bones healthy and strong

Supports joint health

Contributes to a balanced diet and helps maintain weight

Natural glycine promotes healthy immune, digestive, and central nervous systems.

If this all sounds too good to be true, that’s exactly what I thought when I started taking collagen a few years ago.  But then I started seeing results.  And so have many of my friends.

If you’re new to happy, healthy and hot, there are tons of ideas on how to use Collagen Peptides in older posts.  I love using them in coffee.  Tea works great too, or a smoothie.

When I’m at home, I use the big blue canister of Collagen Peptides.  I throw a scoop in the blender along with hot coffee, coconut oil and vanilla stevia.  If you blend till it is nice and frothy it tastes just like a delicious latte.  I typically have another scoop later in the day.

When I’m going to be out all day, I’m loving the convenience of these new packets.  Just yesterday I stirred them into a hot cup of brewed chai at Starbucks.

They will be great for the travel I have coming up in the next few months.  (I used to scoop Collagen Peptides into little snack size baggies for travel…not fun and kind of messy.) One packet contains 10 grams of collagen, the same as one scoop out of the big blue canister.


Vital Proteins is also offering individual packets of Marine Collagen and Beef Gelatin.

Marine Collagen is made from red snapper rather than beef.  It is pricier, but great for those who avoid beef or simply if you want to change things up a bit.

The Beef Gelatin is very similar to the Collagen Peptides.  Both are sourced from grass fed cattle.  The gelatin will only dissolve in hot liquids.  And if your coffee gets cold before you finish it, you’ll have a cup of coffee jello.  True story.

So there you have it.  These packets of Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins are happy, healthy and hot approved.  Anything that is easy to use and helps you look and feel amazing is a win-win in my book!

You already know the answer, but I’ll ask the question anyway.

Can the new packets of Collagen Peptides from Vital Proteins help you feel happy, healthy and hot?  Hell yeah!

You will be happy with something so convenient and easy to use.  As far as healthy, anything that is supporting your musculoskeletal system and helping to maintain your weight sounds great.  And with firm skin, and healthy hair and stronger nails you will certainly be hot!

  1. I just got these last week! I had intended to purchase the collagen peptides anyway, because I too could use firmer skin (at 56). I saw that they had these travel packs and said yay! The convenience of these would make me more likely to actually use them. Thanks for reiterating your coffee recipe again. That’s an easier way for me to use this, rather than putting them in a smoothie.
    And I ordered from 100% Pure this morning too. Thanks for the link. Have you ever used their nail polishes? I ordered 2 colors. I cannot wear regular nail polish as it kills my nail beds. I miss pretty nails, so I thought I’d give their products a try. So many colors, so many choices!


  2. Hey Primal Plum, great to hear from you! Yes, with these little packets it is just so easy! I think you will love 100% Pure. I am totally obsessed with the mascara, and love the shampoos and conditioners. I also just got one of the lip caramels which is really nice. It goes on like a gloss but has a lot of pigment and the color really stays with you. I have never tried the nail polishes…please let me know how you make out!


    1. Ellen, I thought the exact same thing. They are perfect for travel. I’m always on the lookout for things that make life a little easier. I was scooping collagen peptides into individual snack size baggies for travel. This is so much easier! I also threw a few in the glove compartment of my car.
