If you are experiencing food allergies and need to work on your gut health, or if you are looking for a nutrient-dense addition to your diet, bone broth is your new best friend. Bone broth has been used in traditional cuisines for thousands of years for its healing, anti-inflammatory properties. The benefits of bone broth are extensive – it supports a healthy immune system, radiant skin, boosts cognitive function, and promotes good digestion. Bone broth is advised in many anti-inflammatory diet protocols for its healing properties, including Dr. Kushnir’s Tibetan Cleanse. If there really is a “superfood,” bone broth is the real deal.

Bone broth is a simple and powerful way to enhance your diet. You may enjoy it with a meal, as a snack, cook with it, or use it as stock. If you are short on time, I recommend investing in an Instant Pot®, which will make your cooking sessions shorter and life a lot simpler.* Here is a great Instant Pot Bone Broth Tutorial from Eileen Laird of Phoenix Helix. Bone broth is a staple ingredient in my kitchen, and I return to Eileen’s recipe every week, which is the basis for the recipe below.

If you don’t have an Instant Pot, you can definitely enjoy bone broth by making it the old-fashioned way – on your stove. The process is simple, but it is recommended to keep it on the stove for 8-24 hours to make sure you fully extract the nutrients from the bones (healing amino acids like glycine and proline, collagen/gelatin, vital minerals). You will want to invest in some high-quality glass jars to store your broth as well.

If you are on the cleanse, you may use garlic and onions when making your broth, as well as carrots and celery, as long as you are not allergic to these ingredients. Just make sure to strain your broth when it is prepared 🙂

Instructions
  1. Place all the ingredients in a large stock pot and cover with filtered water. Leave enough room so that the water can boil.
  2. Bring the water to a boil and then reduce it to a low simmer. As the broth cooks, check on the water level. If a lot of water has evaporated, you might need to add some water throughout the cooking session. However, do not worry if some water evaporates, since a more concentrated broth will provide more nutrients.
  3. Cook the broth on low heat for at least 8 hours. Allowing the broth to simmer for 24 hours is best for maximum benefits.
  4. When the broth is done, allow it to cool. With a slotted spoon, take out the vegetables, meat, and bones. Once the broth has cooled, use a strainer to distribute it to glass jars.
  5. Refrigerate the glass jars. The broth should keep fresh for up to 5 days. You may store extra broth in freezer-friendly glass containers for future use.
  6. When you refrigerate your broth, you will see that a layer of fat has formed at the top. Don't worry! Keep the fat, since it acts as a "seal" and protects your broth from spoiling. You may discard it once you are ready to use your broth, or you may use it for cooking.
