Bone broth - incredibly healthy and nourishing, helps our intestinal health and digestion, keeps colds and flus away by improving our immune system over the cold weather. You can make it vegetarian by using vegetables only and omitting the bones, but the gelatin from bones is what makes it so healing for our intestines. Making your own broth is inexpensive, re-uses food scraps you may otherwise throw out, plus makes your home smell great : )
Bone broth or stock is a traditional food: one way our ancestors used up every part of an animal. Bones and marrow, skin and feet, tendons and ligaments that you can’t eat directly can be boiled and then simmered over a period of days. This simmering causes the bones and ligaments to release healing compounds like collagen or glutamine that have the power to transform your health.Read More
