What’s Up With Collagen?

2018 is the year of collagen and skin care. Also- I’m hosting a giveaway on my Instagram right now!

2018 is the year of collagen and skin care. At least for me anyways!

You’ve probably seen SO many Instagram posts with Vital Proteins. To be honest that’s what made me look into it.

So, here’s what you need to know:

Hair, Skin, Nails Collagen helps improve skin elasticity. AKA wrinkles! I have noticed my skin become more plump with less fine lines after using collagen consistently for the past few months.

Digestion This is an issue I’ve been dealing with for the past few years. Collagen helps to heal your gut’s lining and to absorb water which keeps things moving more efficiently. Digestion is honestly the key to life and if this is off, your whole life is off, trust me!

Joint Health I’ve never really struggled with this but if you do, collagen can help lubricate your joints, reducing pain. Think oiling a creaky door hinge.

My favorite brand is Vital Proteins. Specifically, their collagen peptides. I’ve tried the creamer which was delish, but for the money I’d rather have the regular peptides so I can mix it in anything. Plus, 10g of protein in one scoop! (Not sponsored..but I wish LOL)

P.S. You literally CANNOT taste them and they mix in completely. No grittiness!!

My Top Simple Wellness Tips

Hey peeps! 

Here are some of my fav simple tips to make your day just a dash healthier.

Fats, fats and more fats

I used to be so scared of fats and oils! To me, fat in equaled fat on.

All of a sudden I kept seeing all of my favorite wellness Instagramers using ghee on everything, eating ½ an avocado at a time and making Bulletproof coffee every day. So, I decided to do research and eventually tried incorporating more fats into my diet.

Since I changed that mindset of fat being “bad” and eating more healthy fats,  I started noticing my body really transform.

Now, I am fuller for longer and this is big for me because I’m a huge snacker!




I was always the girl in the gym who would workout and somehow barely sweat. And when you’re working your tail off it’s pretty frustrating.

Then I started experimenting with HIIT because, like I said, I love to play around in the gym and try new things.

HIIT is one of the only workouts that get me sweating like crazy! Plus, you don’t have to be in the gym for hours on end (such a plus). Getting a killer workout in just 30 mins is the best feeling ever.

HIIT is another reason my body started to change. Getting my heart rate up and constantly shocking my body with new moves really works for me. Love it!



Bringing your lunch

A tip for your body and wallet!

When you don’t pack your lunch for the office or school, you might have the best intentions to choose a healthy option, but peer pressure is a real thing. Often times spur of the moment choices are not the best for us.

I love to bring my lunch so I can have complete control over what I’m putting in my body and don’t have ragrets.

Warm lemon water

What an amazing way to start the day. I warm up a mug full of water and squeeze a ½ lemon every single morning, no matter what. For me, this takes precedent over coffee. Psycho? Maybe.

Side note – I should probably invest in a lemon squeezer but somehow I can’t bring myself to spend the $10.

Warm lemon water gets your metabolism & digestion going right when you wake up. I’ll try basically anything to aid my digestion. My morning cocktail flushes the digestive system and rehydrates the body and I feel more flat, which doesn’t hurt!

You’re hydrated, you’re doing good for your body, you’re glowing!


Living a healthy lifestyle doesn’t have to be hard! That is what A Dash of nutMeg is all about!

Making small changes and implementing little tips and tricks will add up over time.

Keep it simple and consistent. You’ve got this!!
