Bone Broth--How to Make it and Why You Should be Drinking it!

Bone Broth--How to Make it and Why You Should be Drinking it!

It seems everyone is talking about bone broth and its magical powers.  Bone broth supports gut health and reduces inflammation--two awesome side effects of eating Paleo in general--but its benefits don't end there.

While bone broth is becoming more readily available in stores--The Joyful Food Co. even makes our own with grass-fed beef bones--it is more economical to make your own.  There are many recipes for bone broth and tutorials available online, but the truth is, you don't have to follow a recipe to the letter or own fancy kitchen equipment (I use a crock pot!) to get delicious and healthy bone broth.

While the recipes are great starting points, there are really only a few things you need to know before you get started.  When choosing bones to use, get the highest quality possible (organic/pastured/free-range).  Also, you don't have to use whole vegetables.  I have used the ends of celery, carrots, and onions in my stock, and even kale stems!  It all depends on what you have on hand!  Lastly, you will need to use about a TBSP of apple cider vinegar as it helps to break down the bones.

Whether you drink a mug of bone broth daily, use it in recipes, or simply freeze it to drink when you feel a cold coming on, this nutrient-rich "liquid gold" is the perfect addition to any diet!
