Still Resisting Bone Broth? Here’s A Delicious Health-Boosting Recipe To Get You Started!
By Kavata Kithome
What is bone broth? The simple answer: it’s a liquidy mixture made by simmering animal bones in water for up to 12 hours and offers a myriad of health benefits.
I remember my grandmother and mother would take the bones, slow boil them and pour them in a bowl to serve. Grandma would always say that this broth is medicine to help keep you healthy and make you big and strong. I am beginning to see the wisdom in what she was saying.
This broth is high in calcium, magnesium, collagen, gelatin, amino acids and phosphorus that are all great for helping rejuvenate the gut, improve digestion, support joint tissue, boost the immune system, preserve skin elasticity and so much more.
But if this is not enough convince you, here is a recipe for good bone broth and a recipe that involves bone broth to help kick off your interest in this amazing, remedying mixture.
***Remember to pick bones of grass-fed and pastured/organic if going with red meat and if you choose the poultry route, choose pastured or if going with fish, going wild is best. Many butchers will actually provide these free if you ask for them!
Delicious Bone Broth
- 1-2 pounds of marrow bones (I use beef marrow bones)

- Put in crockpot and let it slow boil for 8 hours or until the meat is pulling off the bone.
