Bone Broth or Bust
With the cooler temps rolling in, there’s nothing more relaxing than indulging in a warm and inviting beverage. Whether it’s coffee, tea or hot chocolate, we have an alternative that can give you all of the warm and fuzzy feelings without the empty calories and added sugar. This is where bone broth comes in.
Bone broth has taken the health and wellness world by storm. It is being praised for its plethora of health benefits and delicious taste. It’s even being served in cafes and restaurants and being used in supplements. Bone broth is just as it sounds, a savory broth made from animal bones and connective tissue. Bone broth can be made from beef, chicken and even fish.
This delectable and nutrient-packed broth can be made from scratch and it’s easier than you may think. You can also make it in bulk and freeze to use later and add to soups, coffee, stews and so much more. Ancient Nutrition has a great recipe for making your own bone broth, check it out here.
If making your own broth doesn’t work for you, you can also purchase premade broth. At Livewell, we recommend Kettle and Fire bone broths because they use organic and quality ingredients.
