Bone broth is extremely hydrating and provides great nourishment for the body. It is filled with vitamins and minerals as well as protein. It warms the body on a cold dry day, is easy to digest and boosts immunity. It's particularly helpful when recovering from illness. It is touted for its anti-inflammatory properties and may help to heal the gut. It is balancing for Vata and Pitta doshas but can be somewhat aggravating to Kapha in excess.
I always have bone broth on hand through the autumn and winter months. It is my go-to breakfast when I’m pressed for time or need a small snack. I like to spice mind up with turmeric, moringa, black pepper and ghee. This boosts the anti-inflammatory properties and the nutritional value. Beyond drinking broth, I also use to make soups and cook rice for boosted nutritional value.
It is easy to make but does take a time. You can check out my chicken bone broth recipe here! Enjoy :)
