What a week-let’s start with the fact that I had my second baby! It has been an emotional, exhausting, joyous week if I never knew one. I’m sure many of you can relate 🙂 When everything changes its important to take care of yourself. Many of you are fighting the winter cold(I know I am running on empty), working towards those new years intentions…this is something everyone can incorporate cause its just so dang good for you!
I have been making my own broths for while. Just by saving your organic veggie scraps in the freezer you can make your own veggie broth, and what a use of all those scraps! Save the bones from the whole chicken(your husband won’t mind em taking over the freezer;) add some seasonings and ,voila, chicken broth. Or with turkey after Thanksgiving. Here are some tips to remember when making your own. There are a couple things to keep in mind to make sure you get the most out of your bones.
Lately, I have been buying my broths from a local source. I cant wait to tell you more! I am working on another High Vibin in MKE story so stay tuned. People like this really light me up.
But why bone broth? These two articles from The Chalkboard Magazine and Wellness Mama do a great job. Instead of regurgitating what they say ill just let them say it. Did you read em? Like, whoa, right? I am going to go heat up my cup on the stove right now, it’s like a warm hug.
I sip on a cup everyday. I truly believe its helping me bounce back. Depending on what kind of broth I am having I will add spices like turmeric (always with some pepper for absorption) or Chinese 5 spice for a Pho inspired treat. Whateves!
I hope this finds you well and if not, you know what to do.
