Recently I’ve started making bone broth continuously in my slow cooker, which means it’s always on hand whenever I want to drink some or add it to my food. With the cold mornings we’ve been having here, it’s been lovely to have a bowl of broth for breakfast with one or two eggs dropped in it, or just a mug when I’m feeling cold.
Bone broth isn’t just delicious – it’s also very good for you. It’s a great source of amino acids, minerals, gelatin and collagen, which can be beneficial if you suffer from leaky gut, colds and flu or joint pain, and also promote healthy bone, skin, hair and nail growth.
And best of all, bone broth is a nutrient-dense food that doesn’t cost the earth. You can make it for next to nothing from leftover bones and veggie scraps (maybe adding in the odd onion or celery stick).
I’m still working on perfecting my recipe, but I will hopefully share it with you next week.
Do you eat bone broth? What is your favourite type?
