I like to add gelatin in any way I can to foods that I eat its gut healing and has no taste. Peanut Butter Fudge is really easy to make and Thermomix instructions are included.
Is there anyone that doesnt like Peanut Butter fudge? Its pretty hard not to, but there are two types that you can make
- The healthy way
- The unhealthy way
I know they both taste good but the traditional way is rather sickly and not very good for you. Making it the healthy way you can add sweetener but I don’t I find it sweet enough. (If you eat a lot of sugar you probably wont find it sweet) there is sweetener in the recipe.
If you have read any of my previous posts you will know that I have been doing the I Quit Sugar 8 week program for the third time, the first two times I did on my own from the book but I signed up for the official online program this time around and its worth every cent, the recipes are really easy and taste amazing. I only recommend something if I truly like it.
This was a snack that you could eat on the program because its full of good fats you only need a little bit, its great for cravings! I adapted this recipe and added a couple of different ingredients including the Gut Lovin Gelatin
Benefits of Grass Fed Gelatin
- Gelatin can help build lean muscle: The reason? It contains collagen, crucial to the body’s structure and musculature.
- It may help heal bones and joints: Studies suggest gelatin has the potential to reduce joint stiffness and inflammation, as well as help repair painful tears in the cartilage.
- The glycine in gelatin may also help your liver detox. This is because amino acids assist the liver in removing toxins from your body.
- Research has shown that gelatin might be of assistance to those suffering with insomnia. This is because the glycine in gelatin plays a role in producing and regulating neurotransmitters in the brain. As a result, consuming gelatin before bed can actually help improve how well you sleep.
Of course glycine and proline are also in collagen, which is why gelatin can have a lot of the same effects. And although we make those particular amino acids in our bodies, we can do with a top up when required.
