Why Bone Broth is where it’s at, and how to make it at home
Let me start by saying YOU CAN DO THIS.
Making your own bone broth is super easy, do it once and you will be hooked.
Grass-fed, humanly sourced bones of cow, chicken or any other land animal you prefer.
When using beef bones, ask for marrow bones because they are full of the nutrients you need to build healthy blood and cells. Sauté both sides of the bone for a quick three minutes to make a seal of the marrow.
Using a crockpot is the safest method for peace of mind while you make your broth. Ideally you’ll cook this for a minimum of 24hours and as long as 3days. As the water content lowers you continue to add more in.
Rough chop carrots, onions, garlic, celery or any other vegetables you desire to increase the good flavor.
Add your bones, vegetables and filtered or spring water to the crock plus a splash of apple cider vinegar and sea salt. The vinegar leeches the minerals from the bones which is extremely important in order to get the full potential of this healing/immune support elixir.
Set it (to low) and forget it! Except to add more water.
You can drink your broth as a daily tea or use it in soups or as your liquid in cooking rices and other grains.
The reasons for bone brothing are plentiful. I recommend it for any client healing from a physical or emotional trauma because the minerals and nutrients present in the broth are exactly what the body needs to promote a more speedy and complete recovery. Often these building blocks are lacking in the modern diet. After adhering to the bone broth recommendations, my clients report a felt sense of nourishment that was not present previously.
Once you make this simple broth and experience the joy of source healing, you may like to begin playing with adding immune tonifying, seasonally appropriate herbs to your pot for an extended medicinal reach.
Once you’ve made and enjoyed your first broth, leave me a comment and share how you found making it and how you are feeling. If you find this article and recipe helpful please share it with your friends and family or on your social networks.
Love to you and your deepest, strongest most potent Self!
