Let me just say it, NOTHING in the words "bone broth" sounds appetizing, especially to me. I barely eat any meat at all as I would much rather stick to a diet heavy on the veggies. When I started hearing about all of the healing benefits of bone broth, it took me awhile to catch on. I even googled how to make it once and I saw that it took DAYS and lots of meat/bone handling to make, which was not something I wanted to be a part of. One day, though, I was at my local farmers market and they were selling mason jars full of high-quality organic bone broth and I decided to try it. Let me tell you, it changed EVERYTHING.
I experimented with what time of day to drink it and I found that the morning was the best time because my body seems to reap the benefits from it all day long! I put about 2 tablespoon of bone broth into a mug of boiling water and sip on it like tea. Honestly, it does not taste bad at all! It tastes kind of like a stew broth. I use beef bone broth but chicken bone broth is also really yummy too!
My results? Whenever I do my morning ritual of bone broth, I feel more energized, less bloated, and my mind feels clear and awake and ready for the day! Bone broth has a plethora of vitamins and minerals in it along with collagen that replenishes your body with vital nutrients. Bone broth is also amazing for gut health and healing your stomach lining so that your digestive system will run at its prime!
There are many ways you can add bone broth into your diet. If you think sipping it sounds gross (and I did too) start small! Costco now sells cartons of bone broth that you can use to replace chicken stock! Just use bone broth in your soups or as a replacement for water when cooking rice or quinoa and you will still reap the health benefits!
