turkey brothI know it seems hard to believe that we can benefit from using something that is usually discarded.  Yes, I’m talking about bones.  Bones from chickens, ducks, turkeys, cows, bison, lamb and from many other animals.  Bones can be used to make very nutritious and delicious broth for use in soups, stews, sauces and many other wonderful dishes.  There is no comparison between homemade broth and factory made broth sold in grocery stores in cans and cartons.  And please don’t use bouillon cubes that are full of preservatives and other chemicals.  Homemade broth tastes better and contains many more nutrients that your body will love.  You will be handsomely rewarded for the time you invest in learning how to make bone broth.

Benefits of homemade bone broth include improved digestion, gut healing, better hydration, rapid improvement in skin, hair and nail health and increased bone strength and flexibility.  Bone broth can even be used as part of a protocol to reverse tooth decay.  You see, our bodies respond very quickly to the minerals and amino acids contained in broth.  Broth is easily absorbed and very healing to a damaged gut.  Soothing a damaged gut improves nutrient absorption very quickly allowing your body to utilize the healthy nutrients found in the broth itself as well as in the other good foods you are eating.

Adding broth to your diet can be as simple as throwing the carcass from a roasted chicken in the crock pot and letting it simmer overnight with some chopped carrots, celery and onions.  A few additions like peppercorns, bay leaves and parsley can enhance the flavor and even add some minerals. Use this broth to make your favorite soup recipe or simply drink a cup with each meal.
