If you haven't heard about the healing benefits of bone broth, I highly encourage you to read on. This is an incredibly nutrient dense traditional remedy that is making a its way into main stream holistic protocols and paelo diets for good reason.
Bone broth is a staple in most traditional diets with the exception vegan and vegetarian. Its just like what it sounds like. A broth that is made into a healing soup stock that can be added to stews, for cooking grains, stir fry, risotto and really anywhere stock is required. But there is so much more to this type of broth than typical commercial boxed or canned versions.
Bone broth is rich in minerals calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, silicon, and sulphur that our body can easily absorb. Touted for its ability to reduce joint pain and inflammation due to the gelatin, proline, glycine, chondroitin and glucosamine that is extracted from cooking the bones, tendons and cartilage of chicken or beef.
When consumed regularly, bone broth can be used to heal the digestive tract, leaky gut, smooth skin, enhance immunity, improve mood, increase energy, and reduce inflammation and joint pain.
How to make bone broth:
2 lbs bones, from grass fed beef or organic chicken
1 onion with peel, chopped
2 large carrots, chopped
2 celery stalks, chopped
1 tbsp Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
1 litre pure water (not tap)
Roast bones in oven for 30 minutes (improves flavour). Then place bones in large stock pot and add vinegar and water. Let sit for 30 minutes. Then add vegetables and bring to a boil. Simmer on low for 48 hours for beef or 24 hours for chicken skimming off any foam and discard. Strain and discard bones. May add fresh black pepper and celtic sea salt and fresh parsley for flavour.
