bone broth 

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!

LISTEN:

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.

I prefer to make this with veggies added, and then strain using a fine metal strainer for clear broth. Some purists do not add vegetables for the broth, preferring to use only bones and apple cider vinegar. I also prefer to refrigerate the broth, and then skim the thick layer of fat.

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.
