mature adult women yoga classHappy Tuesday! Dr Kelly here. Have you ever tried Bone Broth?

Yummy Bone Broth

Bone broth has so many great minerals in it. It is a simple way to get good nutrition into your body.

You can make it with beef or chicken. I have even made it with shrimp shells. Bone broth has been around since the beginning of time when cooking every part of the animal was typical. It makes use of the parts of the animal that would get thrown away – the bones!

You make bone broth from the bones & connective tissue of animals. There are minerals, amino acids, calcium, iron, potassium, and natural compounds of cartilage in bones. This means you are getting some collagen source too! The protein content in bone broth may support your body as it builds bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.Pure Paleo bone broth

You can buy bone broth as a powder

I use a powdered bone broth for my protein source after my workouts.

I mix a scoop of bone broth with water in my shaker & drink it within 30 mins after I finished my workout.

If you prefer to make it yourself, I have some very basic recipes. I make broth and freeze it. I like to have some around in case someone is not feeling well. You could drink it like a tea or soup broth.

I also use it in recipes that you need broth. Homemade tastes so much better than the store-bought ones.

Making bone broth is simple. Let’s start with chicken.

  • I take an organic whole roasting chicken, put it in a large pot and completely cover the chicken with water.
  • Bring the water to boil.
  • Boil the chicken for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked.
  • Scoop out the “soup scum” as it is boiling.
  • Leaving all the water in the pot, Remove the whole chicken from the pot.
  • I cut the chunks of the cooked meat and put it in a separate container. I use the boiled chicken meat for a chicken taco dinner.
  • Put the carcass in a crockpot.
  • Transfer the water from the pot into the crockpot.
  • I leave it at that.
  • I keep it on warm for 24-48 hours depending on when I have time to transfer it into jars.
  • I strain the liquid bone broth into glass jars that are freezable.
  • Let the jars cool and store in the freezer.

If you would like beef bone broth:

  • I take pieces of the beef femur, which I buy frozen at the grocery store.
  • Mike’s Deli even sells them frozen.
  • The femur will have the bone marrow in it.
  • I place the beef bones in a large pot.
  • I pour apple cider vinegar over the bones so the bottom 1 cm soak the bones.
  • Let them soak for 15 mins.
  • Add 2 -4 pieces of short ribs to the pot.
  • Then add enough water to fill the size of your crockpot. Probably 6-8 cups of water.
  • Bring to boil for 20 -30 minutes.
  • Scooping the “soup scum”
  • Transfer the bones, short ribs and liquid into the crockpot.
  • Leave on low for 24 – 28 hours.
  • Remove the short ribs and the marrow for a yummy dinner.
  • Strain the bone broth into freezable glass jars.
  • Once cool – store in freezer.

You can spice up either of these recipes with any vegetables, salt, pepper. I like to keep it simple – only bones & meat. Text us Bone Broth if you would like to view a bone broth powder in FullScripts. Post a picture of your homemade bone broth on FB/Instagram!
