Bone broth is a power-house of nutrients, and it’s so easy to make.
For the most basic bone broth, simply toss bones and veggies in your slow cooker, cover them with water and leave the cooker on low overnight. If you like to channel your inner chef and want to create something fancy, click here.
The bones are the reason bone broth is so good for us.
Bones break down during long, slow cooking, releasing collagen, which is part of the connective tissue. When you eat collagen your body uses it to build and strengthen all your connective tissue, including skin.
Bone broth is also rich in glycine, which does all sorts of wonderful things. Besides helping to rid our livers of toxins, it enables our bodies to absorb vitamins and minerals that are crucial in keeping our skin strong and healthy.
If you’ve never made bone broth, give it a go. It’s easy, healthy and delicious.
If you create a particularly delicious soup from your homemade bone broth, share it with me next time you’re at The Woodway. I’ll look forward to that!
All the best,
