The Holy Bone Broth

Updated: Sep 26, 2019

Bone broths benefits stretch from healing mucosal surfaces (both in the digestive and respiratory system) to modulating and boosting immunity to joint support.


Oki doki a quick bit of info on this oldie but damn goodie and then to a simple recipe to get you going. Bone broth contains minerals such as magnesium and calcium in forms that are easy for our body to absorb. The slow cooking of animal bones allows nutrients to be released and thus available to us in a higher and easier to attain form.


Nutrients:


Collagen/Gelatin: Cartilage restoration and repair, supporting digestive tract repair and integrity, supporting skin elasticity and moisture, lubricating bone and joints, restoring the strength of gut lining assisting in reducing food sensitivities, aiding in 'good' bacteria growth in the gut and lowering gut inflammation.

Potassium, glycine, proline: Repair junctions in the gut supporting structure and lowering inflammation, supporting cellular detoxification.

Glutamine: Maintaining cellular energy and mucosal healing.

Glutathione: A potent antioxidant supporting systemic defence, metabolism, DNA and protein synthesis and gene expression


Recipe 1:

The whole bang. Including flavour and chicken meat.


Ingredients:

- 1 organic, free range, whole chicken carcass

- Off cuts of vegetables (broccoli stalks, leaf stems)- clean out the fridge of whatever random veggies you have left over.

- Spices: (this is up to you- i like to spice her up but you can also go with just plain) 3 cloves of minced garlic, 1 table spoon of minced turmeric, teaspoon of cumin, teaspoon of rosemary, 3 bay leaves, salt and pepper as desired.

- 1 table spoon apple cider vinegar


Directions:

- Roast chicken in the oven until cooked through- spice as you wish

- Pour liquid from baking tray into slow cooker or pot

- Remove all cooked meat (freeze half and use half for weeks meals)

- Place carcass into slow cooker or pot and cover with water

- Add apple cider, herbs/spices and veggies

- Cover and bring to boil then reduce to a simmer for up to 24 hours (pot)

- Place on low for up to 24 hours (slow cooker)


I keep two large jars in the fridge and freeze the rest. I heat up as a tea or use broth to cook my grains and veggies in.


Recipe 2:

Keeping it simple. This is the easiest no fuss, plain flavour approach.


Ingredients:

- Broth bones from your local butcher (always opt for organic, free range, antibiotic free when you can). these can be chicken carcass or beef bones. I switch it up.

- Apple cider vinegar

- (Optional) Turmeric, 3 inches grated (and black pepper to support absorption of turmeric)

- Water to cover


Directions:

- Place carcass, apple cider vinegar, turmeric and black pepper in slow cooker (or on stove top) and cover with water to the top of pot.

- Cover and bring to boil then reduce to a simmer for 8-24 hours (pot)

- Place on low for up to 24 hours (slow cooker)



ENJOY (:
