“Science validates what our grandmothers knew. Rich homemade chicken broths help cure colds. Stock contains minerals in a form the body can absorb easily—not just calcium but also magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulphur and trace minerals. It contains the broken down material from cartilage and tendons–stuff like chondroitin sulphates and glucosamine, now sold as expensive supplements for arthritis and joint pain.” – Sally Fallon
And that’s just what we’ve been getting into on our cleanse. Big time. Broth is great for healing the gut, hydrating the body and helps aid digestion. Of course it is an integral part of cleansing. It is also great for a snack or for breakfast with a couple of eggs stirred in. And soooooo easy to make. Get yourself a little flask for your bag to keep your broth warm and take with you for morning tea. Much healthier than that sugary muffin.
