If you really want to keep up with the Kardashians, make sure your cabinet is stocked with collagen supplements. Kourtney Kardashian — who maintains an uber-fit physique that's the subject of many selfies — recently opened up about her diet and fitness rituals. And for the mom of three, structural protein comes first.
On her app, Kardashian shared: "Every morning, when I wake up, I take collagen supplements on an empty stomach." (According to reps for the brand who emailed The Feast, the exact supplement Kardashian takes is Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides.) She continued: "About 20 minutes after the collagen, I usually drink one tablespoon of organic apple cider vinegar mixed into a glass of water."
OK, so it's not as delicious-sounding as, say, a vanilla latte. But, the fit reality star swears by the health benefits of her morning concoction.
"Both of these habits have a ton of health benefits that affect everything from your skin to the way your body processes nutrients," Kardashian says. Other healthy habits she abides by: taking vegan probiotic shots, and regularly tucking into avocado pudding made with ingredients such as bone-broth protein powder and MCT oil, which is a fatty acid that can help fuel workouts.
Then, it's onto the good stuff: bee pollen. Kardashian mixes up the stuff in her oatmeal, and usually has a lunch of salad topped with salmon and homemade dressing. When evening strikes, it's onto a dinner of simple soup with sides like sweet potatoes and asparagus.
We'll save you the Google search: Bee pollen is loaded with vitamins, minerals, and proteins, and it's said to reduce inflammation and stimulate the immune system. And, though this hasn't been proven by science, it may also help you look this good in a thong bikini.
