I don’t know about you but eating any type of soup has always been a favorite for me. Soup is most definitely for the mind body and soul. Think about it. It’s great during winters, soothing during sickness, Well you get the point…
What is bone Broth?
Remember those chicken bones you threw away last week. Yep! They were useful. Remember those onion peelings and celery stalks you had to discard. Yep! They were useful.
Bone broth is similar to gumbo. One pot full of anything you like which would probably consist of animal meat, bones, and vegetables.

Why shouldn’t you buy broth at the store?
As you know most of the items you buy on the shelves are not the best choices, but sometimes you have to work with what you got. Right? Wrong. I care about your health and I would highly recommend you limit the middle aisles as much as you can (except raw beans, rice and anything that can be grown). Kaayla Daniel, Ph.D. thinks we should not use any traditional store bought broth. With most of the broths containing more dangerous ingredients than salt itself, we could imagine the what we think is broth is nothing more than water with artificial flavoring. Later I’ll list a few premium broth you can choose from when life gets too busy.
