Immune Boosting Bone Broth Recipe

Immune Boosting Bone Broth Recipe


4 minute read

Its that time of year where we replace our light flowy dresses with cozy knit sweaters and our bodies begin to crave warming flavours and roasted veggies that grow underground. This transition happens automatically as our bodies require different vitamins, minerals and nutrients during different seasons, this Fall / Winter season we are sharing our favourite go-to bone broth recipe to support you during these dry, cold months. 

For those new to bone broths or need a quick refresher of their goodness, they have been used for decades as one of the most medicinal foods in many cultures. Having bone broth on standby to add to your everyday recipes or warming up a cup each day will help you to improve digestion, boost immunity, increase college in the skin, easily absorb minerals and reduce inflammation, there's very few things bone broth can't support which makes it our daily go-to!

We created this specific recipe to have an extra dose of immune boosting properties by using our Immunity Tea Blend and adding extra ingredients such as ginger and tumeric. Plus the probiotic benefits of miso paste, dense minerals from seaweed and a variety of vegetables for daily vitamins. This recipe is designed for you to make it your own and add / remove anything you feel called to for your current needs. (As I gather the ingredients for this recipe I ask myself how I am feeling and where do I feel sluggish in my body, then choose ingredients to support those needs).

Please note that this recipe can easily be made into a vegetable broth instead of using animal bones.

 

Taste

You may be worried at the thought of "medicinal bone broth" tasting awful but this couldn't be more untrue, this recipe has a rich warming flavour with hints of: spice, pepper, sweet onion, sour apple, salty sea and sweet tea.
