1. Chicken Tortilla Soup

"Growing up, I knew it was the beginning of fall when my mom would make her famous chicken pot pie. The warm, crispy dough and hot chicken filling was more than enough to keep me satisfied. Fast forward years later and I think I’ve found the perfect recipe to make a chicken pot pie that is filled to the brim with organic chicken, vegetables and Vital Proteins Chicken Bone Broth Collagen."

2. Roasted Brussel Sprouts With Bacon

"Growing up, brussels sprouts were at the bottom of my 'favorite vegetables' list. As I grew older and started experimenting more in the kitchen with different recipes, I found that they really weren’t all that bad – especially if you dress them up in something delicious (i.e. flavorful ingredients). These Roasted Brussels Sprouts pair perfectly with bacon and crunchy pecans."

3. Spaghetti Squash Stir Fry

"This stir fry is packed full of nutrients because it calls for a range of vegetables and the addition of Vital Proteins Beef Bone Broth Collagen, sesame seeds and caraway seeds. The combination of all these ingredients creates a deep flavor that will leave you wanting more. And in this case, more is better, and seconds are recommended!"

4. Creamy Wild Rice Soup

"This Wild Rice Soup is full of delicious flavors and has a perfect balance with the coconut milk and the rosemary. Other than the creaminess of the soup, my favorite part has to be the added mushrooms and the kale."

5. Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato

"If you’re looking for a healthy, easy and super flavorful dinner recipe to make tonight (or to meal prep for later in the week), you won’t find a better fit than this Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato recipe. My favorite thing about this dish is that it's chock full of so many nutrients: carotenoids from the colorful vegetables, healthy fats from the homemade guacamole and nourishment, thanks to the addition of Vital Proteins Beef Bone Broth Collagen, which helps to promote healthy hair, skin, nails and joints.**"

6. Tomato Basil Soup

Tomato Basil Soup

"Soups are not only great comfort food but also a wonderful way to get many servings of vegetables in one meal. Onion, celery, carrots, beets, and fresh cherry tomatoes make for a rich and flavorful base in this Hearty Tomato Basil Soup. You’ll get a wide array of nutrients, like 11 different fruits and vegetables as well as 10g of collagen, when you can add our Collagen Veggie Blend into each bowl served."

7. Pot Roast

"Our Beef Bone Broth Collagen is the perfect add-in for this Paleo pot roast recipe. It is organic and grass-fed and can be mixed in water to replace a liquid bone broth. Be sure to garnish with fresh chopped parsley!"

8. Collagen Meatballs 

"This recipe for meatballs is perfect for busy people who want a quick and easy weeknight dinner, giving them the full Italian experience in just 30 minutes. This rich, creamy marinara sauce encompasses flavorful herbs and creamy coconut for a decadent dinner you’ll want to cook up night after night. Incorporating Vital Proteins Beef Bone Broth Collagen adds even more depth to the savory flavor of this meal, while adding a slight crisp texture to the meatballs."
