Should I Be Eating/Drinking Bone Broth?

What is bone broth? There are three different versions of stocks/broths. Bone broth simmers the longest, and allows the most nutrients to be transferred from the bones.


            Broth: simmered 45 minutes to 2 hours

            Stock: simmered 3-4 hours

            Bone broth:  simmered 24 hours

There are many benefits to eating bone broth.  The collagen in bone broth helps support healthy hair, skin, and nails. The gelatin and glutamine benefit your gut lining.  (When your gut lining is compromised, food allergies/sensitivities can develop.) The amino acids glycine, proline, and arginine help reduce inflammation. And glucosamine helps support joints. It is even said that the collagen helps cellulite!

Many people drink their bone broth plain.  But I prefer to use it in cooking. Bone broth can be used as a base for sauces and soups. You can also use it to cook veggies or rice or pasta. 

It is easy to buy bone broth in a box at the store now. Buying bone broth can be okay, but make sure you read the label. I have seen many store bought versions that have added sugars. It is also very easy to make your own bone broth at home. It costs less to make your own bone broth and then you control the ingredients and quality of meat. If you get it into your routine, it is actually super easy.  Most Sunday nights I roast a chicken and then immediately use the bones to make a broth. It simmers until Monday, and then I make a soup to eat for the week.

 

Recipe for chicken bone broth

bones from a whole roasted chicken (organic or hormone free)

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

filtered water

salt and pepper

optional: veggies of choice

Put all ingredients in crock pot. Add water and fill to the top.  Simmer for about 24 hours. Strain the broth. For long term storage: pour in silicone molds and freeze. Once frozen, pop out of mold and store in airtight container in freezer.

I cook a lot of soups with bone broth. I know that my body does well with animal products. Bone broth has helped heal my body from the damages from food allergies/sensitivities. But if your body does better with vegetarian foods or you are vegan, try making a veggie broth!
