Why Should I Eat Gelatine?
Gelatine is incredibly healing for the gut.
A study showed that gelatin helps protect the gut wall from damage, although how it does this isn't fully understood.
Gelatine is rich in amino acids, one of which is called glutamic acid it is converted to glutamine in the body. Glutamine has been shown to improve the integrity of the gut wall and help prevent "leaky gut".
A "Leaky Gut" is when the gut wall becomes too permeable, allowing potentially harmful substances to pass from the gut into the bloodstream, a process that shouldn't happen normally. This can contribute to common gut conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
Who knew keeping your gut happy could be so delicious! And like I mentioned, these almond jelly cups make a great snack for the kids as well/
Here is the recipe. I hope that you enjoy 🙂
250ml unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp powdered grass-fed gelatin
¼ tsp vanilla extract
½ tsp powdered stevia or honey to taste
- Put half the almond milk and gelatine in a small saucepan over low heat. Whisk briskly until the gelatine is dissolved.
- Remove from heat and add remaining almond milk along with gut powder, vanilla, and stevia or honey and whisk to combine.
- Pour into one or two glasses or jelly molds and refrigerate until set. The jelly can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for 1–2 weeks.
