Today, I want to share with you my opinion on bone broth.
Is bone broth healthy? In short, yes.
People eat a lot of muscle from the animal, which contains high amounts of methionine. But, when you consume healthy bone broth, you’re getting glycine in a different profile of amino acids. I also recommend consuming some organ meats like liver.
The benefits of bone broth mainly come from glycine, which can help with:
• Blood sugars
Other benefits of bone broth relate to gut health and joint support.
A convenient option is to buy a pre-made bone broth. One of my favorites is from a company called Kettle & Fire. Or, you can follow this easy bone broth recipe below.
• 3 pounds of bones (I like to get this from the farmer’s market)
• Water (2-gallon pot)
• 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
• Add herbs/spices/vegetables/sea salt
Fill the 2-gallon pot with water about 2 inches from the top. Add the bones and the apple cider vinegar. Let sit for 30 minutes. Add your chosen herbs/spices/vegetables/sea salt.
Bring the contents of the pot to a boil and then turn the heat down to a simmer. Let it simmer for 10-24 hours. The longer you let it simmer, the more nutrients are extracted.
Let the keto bone broth cool and then strain out the contents into glass jars. I like to use the homemade bone broth in different soups or stews.
