bone broth paleo dietWhat’s so great about bone broth?

  • Heals leaky gut
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Reduces joint pain
  • Promotes healthy skin, hair, and bones
  • Boosts immune system
  • Easily digestible protein- drinking bone broth reduces your need for meat, which can save you money. If recovering from surgery, this is an excellent way to get in more protein to help the body repair.
 

It’s a nutrient-dense powerhouse.

  • Calcium- many people are concerned about getting enough calcium in their diets without eating dairy products. This is not a problem is you’re eating leafy greens and drinking bone broth.
  • Phosphorous
  • Magnesium
  • Potassium
  • Amino Acids, including glycine and proline, two AA not found in significant amounts in muscle meat. Meaning that if you’re only eating steaks, chicken breast, or tenderloins, you could be missing these important AA.
  • Glucosamine- a glycosaminoglycan or GAGs important for healthy joints
  • Collagen- for strong hair, nails, radiant skin
  • Gelatin- works to heal the lining of the gut
 

How do I use it?

  • Drink on its own
  • Base for soup
  • Season cauliflower rice
  • Sauté veggies in it.
 

How do I make it at home?

Source bones from quality healthy animals. (At POTG, we make our BONE BROTH with grass-fed beef bones, so you know it’s coming from healthy animals. If the bones have more joints in them, you will get a broth that has more collagen in it, but you can use any bones that you have. Ask your butcher.)
  • Vegetables (carrots, onions, celery, parsley, garlic)
  • Vinegar (just a splash. This helps extract minerals from the bones.)
  • Cover with cold water
  • Bring to a boil, reduce to simmer.
  • Cook as long as possible. From 8-12 hours.
  • Strain and let cool
