The Healing Benefits of Bone Broth

September 12, 2016

Happy Monday! It’s a fresh start to begin a new week with a positive and healthy mindset and routine!

 

Speaking to keeping a balanced, positive mindset, yesterday I watched one of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday interviews. It was awesome! Check it out here!

 

And for a good laugh, check out this SNL video for Ariana Grande here πŸ™‚ I wasn’t a fan of her Β until I watched this skit. Awesome voice and impersonations. You go girl!

 

Now, onto a healthier diet this week, I wanted to share with you a new-to-meΒ medicinal drinkΒ I have started to add into my weekly diet: BONE BROTH!

 

Bone broth has been used throughout the ages! It has been around for centuries.

Instructions
  1. Use leftover bones. Make sure to bake them to bring out their flavor. I used 1.5 lbs. of beef bone marrow and baked them for 20 minutes on 400 degrees with olive oil, salt and pepper.
  2. Add all of your veggies, seasonings, bones and all of the pan juices to your slow cooker.
  3. Add vinegar.
  4. Cover with water and put the lid on.
  5. Set to low overnight. In the morning set to warm until the evening. You can let the broth simmer from 10-24 hours.
  6. In a large bowl place a large colander. Pour or ladle the entire contents of the slow cooker into the colander/bowl. Lift the colander (making sure to get all of the liquid) and discard the bones and veggies.
  7. Pour liquid into containers and store in the fridge for 3-4 days or in the freezer for no longer than 6-9 months.
  8. ***Before drinking, you can skim the layer of fat from the top
