Bone broth is the new superfood. It’s a cure-all for almost anything gut related, but also improves hair, skin, nails, joints, immune function, sleep, energy, inflammation, and the list goes on and on! If you’re not familiar with the exact benefits of bone broth, read more here.
After seeing that list, it makes sense why you would want to consume bone broth every day, but unless you like eating soup daily (not going to lie, I could totally do that), it doesn’t always sound that appealing. And now, recent research suggests consuming 14 to 16 ounces of bone broth each day may be the ticket to achieving the most from its healing powers.
Adding ghee and MCT oil to your coffee is all the rave these days, but what if you substituted coffee for bone broth!? I mean, adding collagen peptides is a close 3rd in the bulletproof world anyways! Sure, you won’t get the caffeine high, but when your body is nourished with the healing properties it needs, you’re able to function at a higher capacity which means improved overall focus and energy all day long. Coffee can increase blood cortisol levels, which prevents your body from handling stress efficiently and can also interfere with the absorption of nutrients such as calcium and magnesium which are crucial for energy production! Maybe it’s time to start your morning with something that nourishes rather than depletes.
This is the way I drink bone broth either in the morning or at night — just whenever I’m feeling it! I’ll have a full recipe post coming but here’s the gist… Add ghee to a pot on your stove and let it melt, then add a clove of garlic and continue mixing until fragrant. Add about half a bag of bone broth to the pot with a pinch of cayenne, turmeric, rosemary, pink Himalayan salt, black pepper, and a splash of coconut milk. Warm it on the stove, but be sure not to boil. Transfer to a mug and squeeze half a lemon. Then slice up a few pieces of avocado, throw those in, and sip away!
In your usual smoothie, replace the usual water, nut milk, coconut water, or ice cubes with the most healing liquid of all! Bone broth! I know what you’re thinking and no, it won’t make your smoothie taste savory. You really won’t even notice it’s there! The best way to do this is to make bone broth ice cubes. I like to use this stainless steel ice cube tray or this silicone ice cube tray just to keep things environmentally friendly!
One of my all-time favorite ways to incorporate bone broth is in soup. Stock and broth have many healing benefits, but bone broth goes above and beyond. I like to add a little ghee to a large pot, then some chopped up garlic until fragrant, and throw in some organic grass-fed stew meat. Let it brown on two sides and then add three bags of Osso Good Bone Broth. I’ll chop up and throw in whatever organic vegetables I’m feeling at the time (and what’s on sale). It’s usually some carrots, celery, green beans, potatoes, and tomatoes. Add a little salt and pepper, bay leaves, and let it simmer for an hour. Then squeeze some lemon juice and chow down!
What I love about Osso Good Bone Broth is that when it’s refrigerated, it’s gelatinous. That’s what you know your bone broth is actually bone broth and not stock or broth, because it should be full of collagen and gelatin! We’ll talk more about comparing and contrasting bone broth quality in another blog post, so stay tuned.
Instead of slicing up your avo in a spiraled Instagram worthy rose, mash it up with a little bone broth! Avocados are the only fruits that provide a substantial amount of healthy monounsaturated fatty acids which keep you full and satiated. Eating fats slows down the breakdown of carbohydrates, which helps to keep blood sugar levels stable. Fat is essential for every single cell in your body and helps with the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins and minerals. Combining avocados and bone broth is like having your cake and eating it too!
Basically, a savory twist on your morning oatmeal! Full recipe coming soon, but add some cooked quinoa, coconut cream, and bone broth to a pot on the stove until desired consistency. You can even cook the quinoa in bone broth instead of water! Then add some adaptogens of your choice. I like maca, lucuma, or ashwashanda for this recipe! Mix in some cinnamon, nutmeg, pink Himalayan salt, turmeric, ginger, chia seeds, and honey!
Vegetables will absorb nutrients from whatever they’re cooked in, so why not steam or sauté them in bone broth? An added boost of nutrients and flavor! I like to add a little bit of ghee to a skillet, pour in a little bone broth, and then load up the veggies!
Skip the milk and add bone broth to your fluffy scrambled eggs! Add some bone broth and ghee to your skillet and once they get a nice simmer, throw in some eggs and cook like you normally would! It really brings out a rich flavor in the eggs plus a fluffy texture and packs a nutrient dense punch!
Adding a daily dose of bone broth doesn’t have to be complicated, you just have to get creative! I hope this encourages you to start incorporating The Osso Good Co. bone broth into your routine. Your body will thank you!
