Traditional healing foods like fermented vegetables, kefir, kombucha, bone broths and other cultured dairy have been used for hundreds of years to help heal the body.
For the past few years I have been finding ways to help heal my 'leaky gut' using the most nourishing foods. Homemade Bone Broth has the most incredible benefits that we should all be using for optimal health.
Bone Broths are nutrient dense, easily digestible and healing to the body. They use the parts of the grass fed animals (or fish bones) that we are unable to eat but packed full of essential nutrients to heal the body. Simmering the bones for 12-48 hours releases healing compounds such as collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline that all have the ability to transform our health and heal our gut. They also contain condroiten sulfate and glucosamine that have been shown to reduce inflammation, arthritis and joint pain naturally.
If you want the real benefits of these traditional broths then all you need is a slow cooker or pot and time to simmer. Always source grass fed or organic animals to reduce antibiotics/hormones/pesticides that may be found in traditional meats.
Ingredients: 1 kg grass fed stock bones, 2 carrots, 2 celery stalks, 4-6 cloves of garlic, 2 tsp whole peppercorns, 2 bay leaves, 1-2 onions (or leeks)
Directions: Place all ingredients into your slow cooker, set on low and allow to cook for 12-48 hours the longer it cooks the more benefits you will extract out of the bones. Then strain out the vegetables/bones and use for homemade soups, sauces, vegetables or drink as it is for a gut healing beverage.
