Could You Be Throwing Away the Miracle in Your Meat?

It's that time of year, the time when colds and flus start running rampant. Isn't that all year? I digress...

As with so many things this year, society is getting back to it's roots and rediscovering ancient elixirs. Rooted in Chinese medicine over 2500 years ago, bone broth is making a comeback.

This "meaty miracle" will apparently cure what ails you. It's modern day claims include healing your gut, protecting joints, better sleep, improving memory and immune support, stronger bones, and increased energy.

This gluten-free, cure-all can be sipped as a beverage in place of coffee or tea, used as a base for soups, or even added to smoothies. (Although that last one scares me.) In 1760 the editor of the Dublin Courier first recorded an instance of  beef tea, which is bone broth as we know it today.

According to the "experts" is recommended for daily use. And during the cold and flu season, extra doses if you actually get sick.

Here is the recipe if you would like to make this savory solution at home.

Beef Broth Recipe

1-1.5 lbs of bones (chicken, beef, lamb, or fish)
2 carrots, peeled and thickly sliced
1 small onion
1 clove Garlic
Apple Cider Vinegar (1-1 1/2 tbsp for chicken and fish, 2tbsp for beef and lamb)
Enough water to keep the bones covered


Add all ingredients together in crockpot and cook on low for the following times depending on bone type.

Chicken                             8-24 hrs
Beef and Lamb                8-72 hrs
Fish                                    6-24 hrs
