Move over juice bars—bone broth has come to town!
All the rage in NYC, this warming, soothing broth is credited with glowing skin, increased energy, and a healthier digestion.
Bone Broth is an easy way to drink your minerals—it’s high in potassium, magnesium, and natural calcium, necessary for your bone and brain health.
In this Green Divas Foodie-Philes podcast episode I share more information on bone broth benefits, plus some tips for enjoying it. Listen up then read on for a delicious recipe to try!
Containing amino acids that are beneficial to your joints, this easy recipe is said to keep you healthy and happy, and boost your immunity when you need it most.
And no, this is not the equivalent of a box of organic broth.
You’ll want to carve out a full 24 hours to allow this to simmer on your stove or in the crock pot.
- 2 pounds (or more) of bones from a hormone free, grass fed source
- (turkey, chicken or beef bones with marrow)
- 2 tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar
- 1 bunch parsley
- 2 carrots
- 2 stalks celery
- 1 onion
- teaspoon sea salt
- teaspoon black pepper
- teaspoon ground fresh ginger
- clove garlic
- Rough chop all vegetables (if you’re using them) and add to a large stock pot or slow cooker.
- Add beef bones or turkey or chicken carcass to pot, and cover with water, almost to the top of the pot.
- Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to simmer and let cook for 24 hours.
- Add more water if you need to, but you want a rich broth when finished, you can always add water to serve.
You can store this in the refrigerator or freeze, to use in soups or stews. I like to keep a pitcher on hand with about three days worth. A cup a day keeps the doctor away, and my son loves it.
