I don’t know if I’ve ever shared this with you guys, but I LOVE bone broth.
I actually just love broth in general. I keep a pretty hefty stock of different varieties around my apt.
Bone broth is different though – it has a lot of great health benefits as well as a much richer flavor than the stuff you buy in the grocery store in the little cubes (not hating on those though, I promise I love them too but for different reasons).
But bone broth is one of those things you sip slowly, or use as a base for cooking, and I just started working with Brodo, one of my favorite bone broth brands! They sent me a little care package of different broths, like chicken, beef, and mushroom & seaweed.
They also sent along these tea-like sachets filled with different spices and herbs. You steep them in the broth and it completely changes the flavor, as well as ups the nutritional value.
“Sweet Spice” blood sugar balance with ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, liquorice root, and cardamom seed
“Spicy Fennel” digestive aid with black pepper, chili, fennel, anise, ginger, liquorice root, and tomato
“Tuscan Sun” anti-oxidant with rosemary, lemon peel, thyme, sage leaves, black pepper, and lemon myrtle
Here are some benefits of bone broth, in case you’re wondering what all the fuss is about!
- Since it’s made from bones and connective tissue, it’s good for joints and the digestive system.
- Bones are rich in calcium, magnesium, and phosphorous.
- COLLAGEN! Ladies, if you’re reading this, you probably know that collagen is great for hair, skin, nails, and joints. So drink up! The tissues and bones in bone broth is a source of gelatin, which breaks down into collagen and helps support joints.
- Bone marrow is rich in nutrients too like iron, vitamins A & K, zinc, and selenium.
- Glutamine is an amino acid compound found in bone broth, which is said to help heal the intestinal barrier (aka good for gut health).
