The Amazing Benefits of Bone Broth
Bone Broth is popular now at many places, including grocery stores. Lots of benefits including gut health, boost immune system, healthy joints and hair, helps if you are feeling sick. Some of the nutrient benefits include calcium, phosphorus, zinc, magnesium, potassium, gelatin (helps with gut) and collagen (helps with hair).
Your mom probably gives you chicken soup when you are sick; this is top quality chicken soup! It’s easy to make, is more nutritious, and nicer on the budget. The crock pot is best, but on the stove is good too. I recently visited my friends at WFMZ 69 News to demonstrate how to make bone broth and discuss its overall benefits to our health! Watch the segment here and keep reading below for key takeaways.
Rotisserie chicken – eat your chicken and save the bones OR turkey/beef COOKED, lamb
Onion – peel the loose skin
Carrot- no need to cut or peel
Celery including leaves
Garlic cloves – no peel needed
Splash of Bragg’s ACV - ensures that bones release all the essential nutrients, vitamins and minerals
This is tasty and nutritious as is, but…to adjust taste use one of these:
Liquid Aminos – similar to soy sauce but includes a variety of beneficial amino acids
Tiny amount of ginger
Options to include:
Parsley/Oregano/Thyme/Rosemary – any green spices that you enjoy
All veggies scraps – empty fridge and throw in pot; I empty my fridge and everything goes in such as lettuce, cabbage, zucchini , peppers, dandelion. This makes the soup have a diverse amount of nutrients.
No broccoli or cauliflower
Beef bones/any meat scraps – throw any meat in and cook down
Spicy – chili pepper
Discard vegetables afterwards as they will have no flavor or nutrients.
Cook for 24 -48 hours in crock pot or simmer low in pot for 12 hours
When to drink it?
Breakfast, lunch, dinner; when sick
When you’re in a hurry and want to eat healthy!
