Bone Broth Recipe
We think of bone broth as an ancient healing technique that our grandmothers used, but it has become very main stream over the past few years. Even Kobe Bryant swears by it and uses it has his pre-game meal. He believes it has been a major reason he has been able to play 20 years in the NBA. We have been making bone broth in my house for the past couple years and not only do we love it, our little daughter cannot get enough of it. It is the new Super-Food that contains so many health enhancing ingredients that I call it the perfect meal. Below is an outline on how to make bone broth from chicken and/or beef bones. If you are having any chronic health conditions such as a weakened immune system, weight loss struggles, or neck and back pain; homemade bone broth is a powerful tool that will definitely help.
The first step is to buy all natural-organic ingredients. When you are boiling your bone broth, you are leaching every nutrient out of those bones. You do not want to be leaching out any chemicals that may be in the bones of a conventionally raised animal. So make sure your chicken or beef bones are from an organically raised animal. Whole Foods ensures their animals were never given any drugs or anti-biotics.
I usually do a whole chicken along with some cut-up beef bones for my broth. What you will do is put the entire chicken and beef bones into a big pot of water (on the stove or the crock pot.) Add a cup of apple cider vinegar and bring to a boil. Let simmer for about 2-3 hours or until you notice the meat is falling off the bone.
At this point, take the chicken out and pull all the meat off the bone. This is great protein to add on your salads or other recipes throughout the week. You can also add some of it back into your soup once your broth is complete.
Once all the meat is off the bones, simply throw all the bones back into the pot and let simmer for another 12-24 hours. The longer you simmer the more nutrient dense your broth is going to be. After you are done simmering, simply strain out all the bones and you have Super-Food broth. At this point you can add carrots, celery, herbs, onions, etc to make a very delicious and healthy meal. It is great for adults and kids will love it too.
