Inside Whitney Queisser's Coffee-Loving Collagen Routine

7:30 a.m.: No alarm clocks needed in this house! My sweet dog, Marty, lets me know it’s time to start the day by licking my hand until I wake up. I stumble to the back door to let him outside and down a Defense Collagen Shot™. It’s the only way I've been able to consistently fit turmeric into my daily routine, and the tart and peppery tastes wakes me right up sans caffeine. This is key because...

8:15 a.m.: After a quick shower, it's time for the most important part of my day: making my morning latte. My friends and colleagues know I take my coffee very seriously. I limit my caffeine intake to one coffee a day, so I make darn sure that it counts! It all starts with either a local roaster or Vital Coffee Roasters whole bean coffee, ground fresh using my burr grinder. (High-quality whole bean coffee and a good grinder are essential for good coffee!) I pull a double shot of espresso, stir in two scoops of Collagen Peptides, and pour 8 oz. of steamed oat milk into my favorite mug. Though my latte art game isn’t very strong, this makes a super creamy, delicious latte I can delightedly sip while catching up on email and Slack.

1:05 p.m.: Now, one of three things will happen. One: Marty and I go to the off-leash dog park so he can romp around and burn off some energy. Two: I hop on the Peloton so I can burn off some energy. Or three: I realize I've bitten off more than I can chew for the day and don't have time for an afternoon reset. The solution? Take 30 seconds to make a quick cup of coffee using Crystallized Coffee + Collagen Peptides. I just pour hot water, stir and add almond milk for an easy afternoon power up!

10:30 p.m.: I can get very cranky if I don't get my eight hours at night. At the same time, I have a tough time falling asleep — I can spend hours scrolling on my phone if I’m not careful. That's where the Sleep Collagen Shot™ comes in. I take it right before I settle in for the night and it gets me sleepy enough to swap my phone for an eye mask, and then I’m out!
