The Healing Power of Bone Broth

Bone broth has become all of the rage recently and for good reason! Bone broth is delicious and also has medicinal properties, making it the perfect food. Broth is an extract of connective tissue so it's incredibly healing for your body. When you cook bone broth over a long period of time, it begins breaking down the bones and releases collagen and other vitamins and minerals into the broth. Since most of us aren't eating animal bones, this is the only way to get access to these incredible nutrients. The vitamins, minerals and collagen that become available as these bones break down help repair joints, bones, muscles and blood. As you begin drinking bone broth on a regular basis, you may notice that you recover more quickly from workouts, heal quickly from getting sick, or not get sick at all, and you may even find that you hair, skin and nails glow! Follow my incredibly easy bone broth recipe below and start sipping your way to better health!

Bone Broth Recipe

Ingredients:

1 lb organic animal bones. In this particular recipe I use beef but you can also use chicken or lamb. You can ask for bones at your local butcher or just use the leftovers from your rotisserie chicken. If there is a little bit of meat still on the bones that is ok. It adds to the flavor! 

3 large carrots chopped

1/2 an onion chopped

5 large celery sticks chopped 

Himalayan sea salt 

Water

Instructions:

Add all ingredients to slow cooker

Fill with water so that everything is completely covered by the water

Cook on low for at least 12 hours. 

After 12 hours continue cooking on low but you can now begin drinking it. I keep mine cooking continuously for 3-4 days as I drink it. Then, I transfer it to containers and store in the fridge for 4-5 more days. 

Drink at least one cup per day for the ultimate healthy glow!
