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.

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.
