Nutrient-dense bone broth is making its way into every type of diet this year.
Why? The main difference between bone broth and traditional broth is that it contains additional nutrients such as collagen and gelatin, that especially support your skin, hair, bones and joints. Our body’s formation of collagen naturally decreases as we age.
Bone broth also contains glucosamine and chondroitin (joints), hyaluronic acid (skin elasticity), electrolytes, essential amino acids and more- while remaining low in calories. So drink up!
Make your own simple, nutritious bone broth!
Save the bones next time you cook poultry, beef, lamb or whole fish. Place in a large pot on the stovetop, or in a crock pot, and cover with water. Add 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar to help draw the minerals from the bones.
Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for at least 6 hours but up to 24 hours for chicken and 48 hours for beef.
You can stop there OR add vegetables, herbs and spices to increase flavor and nutrition. Try onions, garlic, ginger, turmeric, celery and/or carrots.
Strain out the solids and let your broth cool to room temperature. You can then use it within 1 week, or freeze in convenient portions to use for up to 3 months!
