THE NEW WAVE: BONE BROTH

Recently, we went to an event where we learned all about bone broth. Now before you cringe at the name because the image of your grandma sucking on bones come to mind {at least for us} we actually have some pretty dope news about this stuff. Being handed a cup of warm liquid and told to "try this,"  made us a bit nervous since it wasn't tea or coffee. However, we're so glad we did.

Bone Broth, the backbone (pun intended) and super food* of this new spot called Springbone Kitchen in the West Village of New York City, is an amazing way to build collagen. Collagen is a hard, insoluble and fibrous protein that makes up one-third of the protein in the human body. 3 In the majority of collagens, the molecules are packed together to form very similar long thin fibril.*

It is what is responsible for giving skin its' elasticity, hair its' strength and connective tissue the ability to hold everything in place. In fact, the collagen protein makes up 30% of the total protein in the body, and 70% of the protein in the skin.

Bone Broth contains not just collagan but its rich in minerals that support the immune system and contains other healing compounds like glutamineglycine and proline. The collagen in bone broth heals your gut lining and reduces intestinal inflammation.

Not to mention it is said to:

  • Help you sleep better
  • Boost your energy
  • Help you to look younger
  • Is very economical and consumer conscious because you're using all parts of the animal, leaving nothing to waste

And the most important factor for us is that it actually is very delicious and could be a low calorie snack. Instead of packing a bar that contains tons of sugar you can jar up some bone broth, whether homemade or purchased and have it on the go.

Sometimes looking younger and feeling good isn't always attributed/obtained by putting something on but rather putting something in.


We have included a simple bone broth recipe for you to try.bonebroth_1e1d1a0a2020970200ac1c591403ed3d.today-inline-large

  • Grass-fed beef bones, chicken carcass or any mixture of bones from wild or pasture-raised, healthy animals
  • Purified water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar (apple cider or white)
      Instructions
  1. Place bones into a large crockpot. You only need a few bones to make broth, but the more you can fit in the crockpot the better.
  2. Fill with filtered water to cover all the bones completely (it’s okay if there are a few bones poking out of the water a little).
  3. Add a splash (about 1 tablespoon) of vinegar.
  4. Set your crockpot on low, and cook for at least 6 hours, preferably longer. Poultry bones can go as long as 24 hours, and beef bones can simmer for up to 48 hours.
  5. When the crockpot is cool enough to handle, pour the broth through a sieve into a storage container or use tongs to pick the bones out.
  6. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Use within 5 - 7 days or freeze for later.
