Chicken Soup for….

Chicken Bone Broth is one of my go-to stables for feeling “better”.  That includes trying to get over sugar cravings (or the wicked wine want-somes).

It has to be the homemade “takes at least 2 days” kind for it to work it’s magic.  Nothing that comes off the shelf at a health food store or market.

I swear it is miraculous for colds and flu.  But I think I’ve found my nectar for calming my mood.

At least that was the case today.  I have three teens…all in high school…it’s been a frazzling week.

Thank goodness I made broth last weekend.

Want to know how?

I spend the extra and buy free range wings and necks.  Ask the butcher to crack them open so the marrow can release.  Buy about 4 pounds.

Throw them in a stock pot with lots of filtered water.  Organic Veggies.  2 Tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar to release the “marrow” from the bones.  Then I slow boil for at least 2 days.  The last 12 hours I add a bunch of organic herbs. Strain.  Pour into jars. Notice how dark mine is….it’s just chicken…the extremely slow 48 plus hours produces a richer bone broth.

There is a ton of “research” out there for it’s health benefits.  But I like Dr. Axe and Katie the Wellness Mama.  Simple info.  One of the best benefits: Boosts Detoxification.  I believe that when my gut is healthy…most of my cravings diminish dramatically.
