bone broth recipe

I have been on a journey to get healthy for the past few years and was recently introduced to the benefits of drinking bone broth regularly.

According to my research animal bones are rich in minerals that make your immune system happy. They also contain healing compounds like collagen, glutamine, glycine and proline which make them excellent for those of us that suffer with joint pain. 

Bones also contain collagen which can heal your gut lining and reduce intestinal inflammation. Music to the ears of a girl that has IBS and horrible acid reflux. 

A great way to get the goodness contained in these bones is by making bone broth (since ya know, I’m not gonna be cracking my teeth on animal bones.)

There are many many recipes out there for how to make bone broth but I thought I would share how we make it at our house with you.

You will need:

Chicken bones from 2 whole chickens (and chicken feet, yeah I know…sounds gross but they actually contain a lot of collagen.)

garlic

black pepper

sea salt

carrots

celery

water

crock pot

Directions:

We actually buy 2 whole chickens and cook them in the crock pot one at a time. Just place a chicken in the crock pot and cover with water. Add sea salt, black pepper and garlic to suit your taste.

We also throw in some chopped carrots, celery and onions but you can add any veggies you like.

Cook on low for 10 hours (when the meat is falling off of the bones)

Remove the meat leave the bones, add the second chicken and add water to fill up crock pot (you may need to keep adding water as it cooks down) Cook again for 10 hours.

Remove the meat again and leave the bones (Now you have chicken to eat all week too!)

Cook on low for at least 12 hours or until the bones are brittle

Be sure to remove the fat that will rise to the top of the water from time to time.

We then put our broth into small mason jars while it is hot and this seals the jars. Let the jars cool off for a while. Then stick them in the freezer.

Note: Your broth should turn to a gel like consistency as it cools. Thats when you know you have great collagen filled bone broth! If it doesn’t you’ll know to cook it longer the next time.

(You can also let it cool for a bit and pour it in ice trays and then freeze. Then just pop out a cube and add it to food or heat it up to drink.)

That’s it. Happy bone broth-ing friends!

Vision Board For Christians Tutorial

By | Bible Study, Faith, goal setting | No Comments

Vision boards are a great way to keep the vision that God has given you for your life constantly in focus and to help you achieve your goals. (If you would like to learn more about goal setting, check out the video HERE.) This is not your typical law of attraction vision board however, but one that you put together based on where the Lord leads you.

The bible says that we are to have a vision and write it down in Hab. 2:2. In this video I show you exactly how to partner with heaven and create a vision board that can be a powerful tool to help you speak life into what you want to see happen. 

Be sure to leave a comment under the video and let me know what you think? Do you think this is something that would help you?

I did a Facebook live recently about one small change I made in my home that improved the health of my family dramatically. It’s a simple change that actually saves me time and mulah. I mean, who doesn’t like that! Check out the video and be sure to leave a comment under it so I see your beautiful face.

To order the cleaner I suggest getting a wholesale account with me with Young Living and ordering the Thieves starter kit. Contact me HERE and I can show you how to do that. Or if you are ready to order click HERE to see instructions on how to do that!
