Bone Broth. One of the hottest food trends of the year- with it’s astounding benefits and healing properties, it even has a vegetarian like me incorporating it into my diet. This liquid gold is said to be “better than Botox” because of its natural ability to stimulate collagen production. It has been shown to help tighten skin, reduce wrinkles, promote hair and nail growth, and even reduce cellulite. WHAT?! But you also want to be just as beautiful on the inside as you are on the outside. Bone broth also helps heal the gut (which if you don’t know about your gut yet, it’s time people!). Medical text books have been revised due to the discovery of the gut/brain connection. That’s huge. It is also immune boosting, helps fight infections in the body, aid in detox, and decrease inflammation. <—— All of this is really good shit fyi. I’m going to share my own Bone Broth recipe with you all as it is one of my most highly requested recipes. Remember, each and every bite you take is either going to FIGHT or FEED disease. Choose your foods wisely!

Ok so let’s start. I like to use a Crock Pot for making my bone broth so I don’t have to keep an eye on an open flame. I can throw all of my ingredients in and let the crock pot do all of the work for me. I can also let it cook and simmer much longer than if I made a pot on the stove. Please feel free to use a stock pot and cook on the stove as this will make an equally amazing broth!
Beef Bones (I like to use marrow and knuckle) Just ask your local butcher for help- they can steer you in the right direction *Grass Fed
*If you wish to make chicken bone broth, swap out beef bones for good quality chicken bones. Bonus tip: add chicken feet to your stock for a crazy amount of extra minerals and nutrients!
2 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar
1 Yellow Onion
Thumb of Ginger
4-5 Cloves of Garlic
Half of a lemon (not squeezed)
Celtic Sea Salt
1 TSP Tumeric (optional)
*Black Pepper + Tumeric = more curcumin absorption (This is good)
2-3 Bay Leaves
Spring of Thyme (Optional)
Throw all ingredients into your pot and fill to the top with water. Set your crockpot on high and let simmer for up to 48 hours. Feel free to enjoy once cooked through one full cycle on the highest crock pot setting. Cooking longer just helps to pull more minerals and nutrients. Once your broth is done, unplug and let it cool completely before straining and storing. I always store in mason jars or glass containers only. Bone Broth will last 3-4 days in the fridge or 6 months to one year in the freezer. Be aware of the “fill” line for freezing with mason jars. They will crack and break open if you fill the jar too high.
I hope you guys recreate and love this recipe as much as my family and I do. As always I’m here to help if you have any questions. Please send pictures if you try this recipe- I would love to see! Do better, be better, my friends ❤️
