I love that word is finally starting to get out about bone broth — and for good reason. It’s so good for us. It is not only a super health food that can help heal your gut, it also can help joints, improve digestion, strengthen your immune system… and did I mention that it may also combat wrinkles, cellulite, and weight gain? Bone broth anyone?
Not too long ago, people would ask me with a slight smirk, “What is bone broth and why in the world would you drink it?” You would have thought I had admitted to being a vampire or something. Fortunately, now that many people have learned the benefits of bone broth, the questions have gone from “why?” to “how?” so I wanted to break it down for you, step-by-step.
I am going to show you how to make chicken bone broth (rather than cow bone broth) since we eat chicken for dinner about once a week and it is a lot easier to find organic chicken or chicken bones. I typically use a whole chicken, but you can use parts of the chicken with decent size bones and joints, like legs or thighs.
