Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth
Bone broth may be the hottest healthy food trend but it’s nothing new. Surely your grandmother tossed bones with vegetable scraps and water in a pot and simmered it on the back burner all day? She probably called it “stock,” but nowadays it is rebranded as bone broth. Your grandmother probably didn’t sip on her stock from a cup throughout the day like many bone broth enthusiasts do now. As a substitute for afternoon tea, a sports recovery drink, and a healthy elixir, bone broth is all the rage.
Does bone broth lives up to all its purported health claims, with the power to build bone, boost the immune system, and heal the gut? Like most foods, we just don’t have good studies to prove or disprove that bone broth is a magical elixir. I do know it’s nutrient-dense and incredibly delicious.
My Turmeric Ginger Bone Broth is easy to make. All you need is a few simple techniques, odds and ends of vegetables (including turmeric and ginger root), and, most importantly, great bones.
