Whether you’re following the paleo diet, cutting out processed food or simply looking for a delicious way to get more nutrients into your diet, a steaming bowl of hot broth is an ancient tonic for modern life.
Extremely nutritious, packed full of taste and simple to make, broth is an age-old staple of many traditional diets around the world. Broth made by simmering bones and vegetables for many hours is thought to have many health benefits and healing properties, such as reducing inflammation, maintaining a healthy gut, inhibiting infection and promoting strong bones, hair and nails. Popular with those following paleo diets, bone broth is a primal food that is easily incorporated into modern lives. Learn to make basic broths with meat, poultry and fish bones, as well as nourishing vegetable broths too. Drink the broth as it is for a warming and mineral-packed pick-me-up or incorporate it in a variety of recipes, using it instead of store-bought stock. Try Chicken Noodle Soup, French Onion Soup, Vegetable Risotto, Beef and Mushroom Stew or Shellfish Bisque. Whatever the recipe or occasion, pack your cooking with nutrients and you'll feel the benefits in no time.
