Vital proteins breakfast scramble

Are you hearing about collagen on a regular basis?

Well, I sure am and not only am I a fan of collagen creamer, but I am a big fan of the plain, tasteless collagen that is easy to add to any recipe or drink. Recently added it to a decaf coffee while onboard a train and was pleasantly surprised, it didn't taste like anything. Greatest part about that, is you can add Vital Proteins collagen to any recipe including the one below.

Thinking about creative ways to add collagen to breakfast in the morning.

My friends over at Vital Proteins have come up with some creative dishes and recipes that they have shared with me and I want to share them with you.

Here is a great breakfast dish and recipe for you and your family courtesy of Vital Proteins.

Recipe as follows:

1/4 cup filtered water

2 scoops of Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides

2 slices of grass-fed bacon chopped

1/2 onion chopped, red or white (or omit if you don't care for onions)

1/2 red pepper or bell pepper chopped

4 eggs

Sea salt and pepper to taste ( my favorite salt brand Jacobsen's sea salts)

Optional garnish: Avocado, cilantro, parsely, and organic salsa


1. Mix the filtered water and Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides in a medium size bowl. Set the bowl aside to let the proteins “bloom” for about 5 minutes. 

2. In a large skillet, sauté the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon with a slotted spoon onto a paper towel. 

Keep the skillet at medium heat and add the chopped peppers and onions.

Cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

3. While the peppers and onions are cooking, whisk the eggs into the Collagen peptides.

Whisk vigorously to mix the granules in well. 

Add the eggs to the skillet, along with the reserved bacon, and cook until the eggs to desired doneness.

It will take an extra couple of minutes due to the moisture from the Collagen peptides.

4. Season with sea salt and pepper, to taste. Garnish with toppings, as desired, and serve while hot.
