Wow, it seems to be one of the coldest years we have had in a long time.
What happened to that global warming? (with a giggle)
It is the time of year when colds and flu seem to want to prevail, and while many other people are running to get those flu shots that I am paranoid of, I want to share a simple method I have found to help build our immunities.
Not only supporting our immune functions, this method also improves digestion, reduces inflammation and improves our skin’s qualities.
The answer is:
Bone broth supplies us with protein, multiple minerals, collagen and more.
But I must tell you that being bone choosy is important.
I often tell you about grass fed beef and how much more beneficial it is for our bodies.
It is important that your bones for your bone broth also come from grass fed livestock.
If you are willing to put in the time to make your own bone broth (simmering can take 24 to 60 hours), here is how to do it:
Gather bones from grass fed animals. You can use beef, chicken, pork or even fish bones. With fish, we also add the head. The recipe I am providing is for beef bone broth.
You need 3 pounds of beef marrow. 1 ½ pounds of meat bones, 3 quarts water, ½ cup apple cider vinegar, sea salt, 2 onions in quarters, 2 carrots halved, 2 celery stalks halved and ¾ cup parsley.
Using a crock pot, add the marrow, bones, water, apple cider vinegar and let it sit for approximately 1 hour.
Add all the vegetables (not parsley) and bring to a boil.
Skim off the scum and toss.
Reduce heat to simmer and do so for 24 to 60 hours.
At the final, add the parsley for 10 minutes of cooking.
Let it cool and strain.
Add sea salt to your taste and you can enjoy or store it in the refrigerator or freezer.
Or buy prepared grass fed beef bone broth
If you just do not have the time to prepare your own bone broth, there is a company that sells grass fed, organic bone broth.
I love Paleo Hacks, and with their service, you can get $10 off your first order.
Bone broth for your health
Just the odor of simmering bone broth may bring the neighbors to your door wondering what is cooking.
The benefits are numerous.
It is often used as a staple for children with autism, and has also been quite wonderful for treating people with allergies.
The gelatin seals your digestive system from leakage.
It is a strong defense against colds and flu… Remember Mom giving you chicken soup? It is like chicken soup on steroids.
Bone broth is a strong tool against inflammation.
The calcium content in bone broth is a wonderful promoter of strong and healthy bones, and it also promotes healthy hair, nails and skin.
I hope I gave you a great idea for a cold season meal.
Bone broth will warm your bones.
