It’s no secret that I love bone broth. Hence, you can catch me regularly sipping on a warm cup of broth, or using it as a base for soups, stews, curries, risotto, sautéing greens, as a stock to cook my grains, and just about everything to add flavour and incredible nourishment to dishes. I also use powered versions as a seasoning for chicken, meatballs or roasted veg for meal preps. It does take time to make a highly nourishing bone broth (as in 12-48 hours to extract the most nutrients), so I like to make a huge pot of it each time and freeze portions. However, the health and healing benefits of bone broth are more than worth your time!
I’ve found bone broth has been a key link in healing my gut and improving my skin, hair and nail health and overall health. Furthermore, the link between gut health, the brain and immune system has been recently researched. As a result, Dr Natasha Campbell-McBride author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome uses bone broth as part of the GAPS diet (a nutritional protocol) to improve gut health, leading to improvements in autoimmune, digestive, neurological and psychological conditions.
