Bone broth is all the rage these days but did you know you could be compromising the health benefits of this amazing age old tradition by not making it yourself, and at a hefty price?
I’m guessing the reason you have decided to drink bone broth is to increase your nutrition, help support or heal your gut issues, and to have beautiful skin and hair. So why buy something that is less nutrient dense and 3xs the price?
Commercial bone broth is almost always watered down, it is supposed to have gelling while refrigerated. This shows just how much gellatin and collagen it actually has. This is highly beneficial for digestive health as well as strong bones, skin and hair. Also commercial bone broth is almost always packaged in toxic containers such as cartons which compromise your healthy broth.
It is important to use a variety of bones such as beef bones, chicken feet, lamb bones, and turkey bones. Store bought bone broths usually don’t combine different animal bones which is highly important for optimal nutrients and healing properties.Bone broth is extremely easy to make so don’t be fooled into thinking you need to spend a lot of money on it.
Take a large crock pot & add desired grass fed bones
Break 2 celery & 2 carrots with your hands and throw them in
Add in one whole garlic (no need to chop)
1 bunch of parsley (no need to chop)
Fill with filtered water
Add 2 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar
1 tsp pink salt or sea salt
Turn on high.
This whole process should take you 5 min or less. No joke!
Once it reaches a boil simply turn it to low and let simmer for 36-48 hours.
Now it’s time to strain and put in containers for storage. It’s that easy! You got this!
