Bone Broth To The Rescue!

Bone Broth

Yesterday we spent the day with our good friends Becky & Phil. We found ourselves at Dickson’s Farmstand Meats in Chelsea Market, NYC. They sell organic, grass fed meats that are delicious. We bought a cooked rotisserie chicken that was tender, juicy and so flavorful that it’s making my mouth water as I type! Becky & Phil gave us the idea to take the meat off of the chicken bones and then use the skin and bones to make bone broth! I’ve wanted to get in the habit of making bone broth on a weekly basis for a while now and the fact that they mentioned that we could use an already cooked chicken was brilliant! Of course that makes sense! We threw the bones in the pot, added 1 whole onion, carrots, celery and 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar. Then we covered it all with filtered water and brought it up to a boil, then simmered for about 6 hours. Once it’s done you have to take out all of the bones & skin – if you don’t want to eat the carrots & celery then strain the whole thing. Otherwise use a slotted spoon to take out the bones. Now we have fresh, delicious, homemade bone broth ready to eat! Here’s my “Grandma’s chicken soup recipe.”

Here’s why bone broth is so good for you: it helps with allergies, immune health, brain function and digestive tract. It improves connective tissue, increases hair growth/strength, boosts the endocrine system – helping the thyroid and hormones. There are many, many benefits to drinking bone broth everyday and I’m about to get my drink on – bottoms up!

*Make sure you purchase organic, pasture raised chicken or grass fed beef because the health of the animal translates directly into your body and you want to get the most vitamins/minerals out of each sip of broth.
