There is no better way to start your day then with a cup of homemade vitamin and mineral packed bone broth.
This is a true multi-vitamin. There are so many wonderful benefits of bone broth:
It provides easy to absorb: calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and other minerals.
great for skin/ hair/ joint health
promotes gut health
essential and non essential amino acids
Great for skin health and joint health
The best part is it is SUPER EASY TO MAKE!!!!
You can roast the bones first or just use them raw. If you roast them the broth has a darker colour. I dont roast them because who has the time?! The only time I used roasted bones is if I am using the bones of a whole roasted chicken.
I get bones – I try make them varied- from my butcher but I also keep bones from whatever meat or chicken I cook. I have a permanent bone supply in my freezer. ( right next to my vegan roommate’s nuts and seeds. poor boy).
I use 500g of bones to 3.5l water
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar ( to help draw out the nutrients)
Optional: bay leaves, onions, garlic, veggies..
Transfer into a pot to keep in the fridge
I like to freeze some broth to have a constant supply and use it for stocks and sauces, cooking up noodles etc
A sign of good bone broth is a jelly like texture.
Add veggie noodles and mushrooms
Add some fish to it… and eat with a side of coconut 🙂
Drink it plain
Beef bones: cook on high until boiling then simmer on low for 8-24 hours
Chicken bones: minimum 4 hours
Do you drink bone broth on a regular basis? How do you prepare it?
