Bone Broth

I often hear people say eating healthy is expensive. I agree it can be, especially if you are spending money on “gluten free” or “healthy” pre-packaged food. This is part of the reason why I do not buy these items. Plus, in reality they are still processed foods and not much better than the standard items.

One food that has amazing health benefits, such as gut healing properties, and rich in minerals, but extremely cheap to make is bone broth. All you need is filtered water, about two pounds of bones (preferably from grass-fed animals), a pinch of sea salt and apple cider vinegar to help pull the minerals from the bones. There are different recipes out there that might have a few other ingredients, but for the most part these are the only ingredients. You can usually buy bones at your local grocery store for just a few dollars. The bones can be used a few times too. Just store them in the freezer in between batches.

I like to make my bone broth in my slow cooker because then it can be cooking while I am at work. If you don’t use a slow cooker, you need to let it simmer on the stove for a few hours. Bone broth is very versatile and can be added to soups, stews etc.  You can even freeze it for a couple of weeks. I usually make a batch either every week or every other. Have you tried making your own bone broth?
