First, bone broth is stock. Stock is usually bone broth (unless it’s prepared vegetarian style with no meat). Bone broth is achieved simply by bringing to a boil, then simmering, the bones and tissues of animals in water. Flavor is added with natural herbs, veggies, and spices. Broth typically has half the calories of stock due to a higher concentration of actual bones versus meat and tissue. The viscosity of each can vary due to the density of the collagen in your ingredients.
Collagen found naturally in animal products, is also popular as a supplement. Integrating collagen into your diet can potentially improve your skin and your hydration levels. By adding bone broth to your diet, you gain the benefits of collagen and high levels of quality protein.
Around for centuries, bone broth is an excellent source of flavor and nutrition. Professional chefs often call it “brodo,” Italian for broth. From scratch, broth creates a depth of flavor as a foundation that is required and most chefs will tell you - the real thing is the way to go, so chunk your bullion cubes. Moreover, moms and wives have been medicating for a millenia with chicken soup. There’s a reason for that... it makes you feel better! Vitamins and nutrients in the warm broth helps to alleviate congestion and naturally heals inflammation.
Another buzzword for trending dietary lifestyles right now - inflammation. Chronic inflammation can cause long term negative effects on the body and the immune system. In general, inflammation is our body’s natural response to being attacked by injury, by toxins, and just about everything. Curating a diet full of anti-inflammatory foods is a great way to avoid these negative side effects later and to start feeling better now. Begin with foods that are whole and pure, that are less dense, and free of preservatives and much easier on the gut.
Even still, sometimes, it’s hard to feel satisfied with salads. Solution? Bone broth. Bone broth is satisfying and good for you!
