The Skinny Confidential is a place for tips & tricks to simplify and improve your life and let me tell you – this coffee recipe will help you do just that. If you’re like me you already drink coffee, so adding some fiber into your daily cup of joe is a seriously easy health hack. It’s practically effortless.
Today I’m joined by one of my French favorites, Ingrid. She is the founder and creator of THE METHOD®. More than a workout, it’s a lifestyle based on the principles that THE MIND controls THE BODY. Ingrid is sharing her latest wellness tip with us: FIBER FILLED COFFEE.
Fiber plays a key role in overall health and wellness. Fiber helps you feel fuller longer, can help with cholesterol & diabetes AND it keeps everything moving ; ). If you want to dive deeper, definitely check out Tanya, creator of The F-Factor Diet ( if you haven’t listened to her episode of the podcast you’re seriously missing out. She is just fucking fabulous & so smart ). She shares WHY fiber is so important for our health.
If you don’t follow Ingrid, you have to because she is FAB. If you remember correctly, I stalked her on Instagram for years & then we finally met in Morocco. You can read about that whole dance here. When we finally met in Morocco, we connected instantly.
Ingrid, Gil ( her husband ), Michael & I met in this tiny, hip joint in Morocco. It’s Leonardo DiCaprio’s favorite restaurant so we felt very glamorous. Ingrid recommended we order white wine because “it’s a skinny drink- easy to sip, not easy to chug like rosé, so you don’t get too buzzed.” Then she ordered apps for the table- veggies with a small side of pasta because she’s all about balance.
Anyway, I invited her back on The Skinny Confidential for a few reasons: 1.) I think she provides a lot of value- she is always sharing ( not hiding!!! ) her tips, tricks, & secrets. 2.) Most importantly: the French way is JUST different- there’s something effortless & chic about how they eat, drink, & workout- and I want in on it. If I want in on it, I’m sure a bunch of you guys do …

I know, we’ve been here before, we’ve done this dance, but we’re doing it again: COLLAGEN. COLLAGEN! COLLAGEN! COLLAGEN! Like how many times can I explain my love for collagen? The love is JUST SO REAL.
However, I am getting a bunch of DMs & e-mail on exactly how to use it.
I mean I feel like we’ve done some recipes ( shoutout to TSC BARBIE PINK SMOOTHIE– recipe here ) & we’ve discussed benefits…but we have NOT discussed the many, MANY ways it can be used.
The options are endless really?
It’s not one of those things where you have to mix it in water & plug your nose while gulping it down ( although, I would- beauty is pain! ). We don’t need to do the whole gulp thing- we can take an easier route.
A bunch of routes that I will break down in the blog post for you.
First off, I should mention: collagen is kind of the glue that holds everything together. Collagen gets screwed up by smoking, sunlight, cortisol, aging, etc. YOU KNOW I LOVE TO EAT FOODS THAT PROMOTE THE BODY’S ABILITY TO PRODUCE COLLAGEN, like: berries, eggs, salmon, avocado, …
As you grow as a brand I think it’s really important to support other people in the space. For me, it’s almost like a game to find who is on the pulse, who is killing it & who is being a total hustler. I like to bring other hustlers & small business owners on the podcast or the blog so the other day I was thinking that I never really talk about Instagrammers to follow.
When I started blogging, I would’ve died of happiness if another blogger in my space shared my Instagram handle on their platform. This industry can be so competitive when it doesn’t have to be at all. There are 7.5 billion people in the world & there is room for everyone. I like to give credit where credit is due.
With that, these are 5 people who are hustling their face off, busting their ass, crushing the game, & who I …
