Let’s talk about delicious + nutritious, easy to make: bone broth
I fell in love with making and drinking bone broth a few winters ago It is one of the most important health building drinks that you can make for yourself. Check out the work of Weston A. Price talking about the powers of broth. You can enjoy it by the cup or make it into soup, rice or gravy.
Really, add it to anything you can think of. Most of the time, I simply drink a cup of warmed broth in the morning and it brings me to life.
Many local butchers have bones for sale by the pound, you just have to ask. The best types of bones are from animals which are grass-fed, organic and local. Purchasing them from a reliable butcher, who knows where the bones came from, is important because you are wanting the marrow, calcium and other nutrients contained within the bones. Using factory farmed animals who are pumped with antibiotics, and who are eating GMO feed (a.k.a: Corn or Soy) will pass along those unwanted contaminants into your body.
I cycle through beef, chicken and fish bones to make a great broth or stock base. Any one of these can be used in various soups, stews and rice dishes.
