    A Great Way To Re-Mineralize Your Body

    We hear a lot about “bone broth” these days. It’s an ancient food made from simmering bones of fish, poultry or beef for many hours in water. The resulting liquid is full of minerals and collagen protein from the broken-down bones. This kind of nutritious food is helpful for re-mineralizing and strengthening bones, joints and skin.

    Unfortunately, working with animal bones presents a mental challenge for many! Luckily, you can now search google to find local bone broth companies popping up in a city near you!

    But, I do have another (cheaper and easier) method for reaping the benefits of bone broth…

    Make Your Own Healing Broth – Shortcut!

    It turns out that a lot of the collagen protein melts off the bones when you roast a chicken! So what I usually do every weekend is spend a few minutes getting some chicken pieces (bone-in, skin-on) into the oven – and letting it roast for about an hour and a half at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. All the liquid that has melted off the chicken is full of collagen protein and minerals. I save it and add it to my soups for a nutritious flavor boost!

    This makes it so that I don’t have to buy the chemical-laden broth in the box, and I don’t have to spend so much time boiling bones! Although, I do still boil the leftover bones from the chicken I roasted because there is still more nutrition in them and I don’t want to waste any bit of my organic chicken! Two for one!

    Try out my easy method for homemade chicken “bone broth” in the soup recipe below. Let me know if you have questions in the comments section below! I’d love to hear your feedback.

    Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Paleo
    serves 6

    Ingredients:
    3 T. olive oil
    2 medium onions, peeled and chopped
    4 medium carrots, ends removed and chopped (I don’t bother peeling them, just rinsing)
    5 stalks celery, ends removed, rinsed and chopped
    OR, just buy these already chopped at most grocery stores

    1.5 T. garlic paste, or 4 cloves, minced
    1 T. sage, roughly chopped
    1 T. thyme leaves (dried or fresh)
    2 bay leaves
    1-2 t. sea salt – start with 1, add more as needed (I use this brand of salt)
    2 quarts filtered or spring water or homemade broth
    2 c. cooked chicken, chopped
    1/2 cup drippings from a roast chicken
    1 c. frozen green peas (optional)
    1/3 c. quinoa OR 2 cups organic brown rice pasta (optional)

    Directions:

    1. Heat a large soup pot (5 quarts or larger) over medium heat. Add the first 9 ingredients to the pot and stir to coat everything in oil. Stir occasionally to prevent vegetables from sticking.
    2. After about 5 minutes, cover the pot and allow vegetables to cook for about 5 minutes longer. Continue to stir occasionally to prevent sticking.
    3. Add water or broth and stir. Cover and bring to a low simmer. Cook for about 10 minutes more.
    4. Add the pasta or quinoa and turn heat to low. Cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and turn off the heat. Allow the peas and chicken to heat through. Add more water to reach desired consistency.
    5. Serve warm. Store in fridge for no more than 5 days. Freeze unused portion and reheat over stove.

    This may seem like quite a task to those of us who live with fatigue, but it is a dish that you can make once and enjoy for many days. Because it is a nutrient-dense food that will help you to regain energy and build up a mineral reserve, it is worth it to put the effort into making it in the first place!

    I hope you enjoy it. Try it out and leave a comment below with ideas, thoughts and suggestions!

    Keep taking back your health,
    Robin
