Fancy Oatmeal

Add Protein Essentials Collagen to your oatmeal to maximize your benefits. One serving of Quaker oatmeal has 5g of protein, add 1 scoop of our collagen and now you have 12g of protein. Add fruit and nut butter like Sunbutter to really ramp up the flavor and health benefits. Sprinkle Linwoods Ground Flaxseed Pumpkin Seed & Sunflower Seed  over the top. Now your little bowl of oatmeal is a real taste and health treat!

Simplicity is sometimes the key to greatness. Combine three simple ingredients and BOOM! Simply perfect. Healthy and delicious. We came up with this on a Sunday so it’s giving us #SundayVibes – but it’s safe to say this combo is great every day of the week.

Combine a warming cup of Earl Grey Tea with a scoop of Protein Essentials Collagen Peptides and hit this with a big splash of a Halo mandarin for simple loveliness. You could add a drop of raw honey for an extra hint of sweetness.
