The How & Why of Bone Broth

Updated: Jul 9, 2023

The how & why of bone broth🍖 Bone broth is perfect for this time of year. It's warming, cozy, delicious, and so good for you!⁠

The strategy I've learned is "throw it all in!" Here are some starter ideas:⁠


First you'll need:

⁠ - a big pot⁠

- 1-2 pounds beef and/or chicken bones (pre-cooked for more nutrients)⁠

- a splash of apple cider vinegar (this helps break down the bones)

- carrots - 1-3 is good

- celery - 1-2 stalks⁠

- a whole yellow onion⁠, chopped

- rosemary - 1-2 sprigs⁠

- mushrooms - 2-3⁠

- 1 tbsp salt⁠ - parsley to taste⁠

- water, enough to fill the pot⁠


Cover this concoction and bring it to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-24 hours. What?! Yes. That helps to get all the nutrients from the inside of the bones out. ⁠


After 12-24 hours, remove the bones & veggies, strain the broth, and enjoy! Drink by itself or save for a soup.⁠


⁠Why is bone broth so good for us? ⁠


Bone broth is FULL of nutrients: collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, & gelatin - all which help support connective tissues in the body. ⁠


This means healthy bones, bone rebuilding, supple joints, healthy hair, strong nails, elastic, moisturized skin, nourished gut & a happy gut-brain connection! What more could you want!?⁠
