RECIPE: Bone broth survival soup
If you are up to date with the latest food trends, then you know that there’s a lot of talk about all the amazing benefits bone broth has to offer. In earlier times it wasn’t that unusual to find a pot of broth simmering away on the stove. But this has pretty much disappeared over the years. And now it’s making a comeback, and rightly so! And you don’t have to worry that you have to spend hours in the kitchen to get all the goodness from bone broth. Many of the nutrients in bone broth become available when simmering the broth for a long period of time. But you can buy it ready made! Be critical though, most of the stocks you can buy in the supermarket are made out of meat, but the process by which it is made is way too quick, and often with artificial flavor enhancers and emulsifiers. If you don’t pay attention it almost tastes the same as the real deal, but you are actually consuming something that’s not very good for you. And at the same time, you’re missing out on the valuable nutrients real bone broth gives you, the ones that only become available after hours of simmering. Of course, there are enough people out there that claim that bone broth contains very little nutrients and that the benefits have not been backed up by science. But I invite you to try it yourself, it’s bound to make you feel good! But first I’ll tell you all about the benefits and after that, I’ll share one of my favorite bone broth recipes with you.
Bone broth benefits, it:
• works as an anti-ager and reduces cellulitis
• has a calming effect
• is great for digestion
• maintains healthy bones, teeth, hair, skin and nails
• supports immune system function
• has an inflammatory effect
• protects and repairs joints and cartilage
• strengthens tendons and ligaments
• is great for connective tissue
Are you convinced? Then read on for the recipe. I buy stock (Jersey cow or chicken) at the organic butcher closeby. I myself don’t feel like and don’t have the time to let it simmer for hours (oops, I know, not very foodie-like, but it’s the truth). If you do feel like making the broth yourself, then, of course, go for it. My boyfriend makes it sometimes, but he’s got more patience than I do. Would you like to know how to make it yourself, in our online program ‘Reset Your Health’ we’ll dive into all the details you need to know and why. Oh and on this picture, we put some vegan Parmesan cheese as a topping on the soup, really nice!
