Body Building Bone Broth

01 / 08 / 2024

The simplest way to improve your nutrition and gut healing while amping up your protein and collagen intake is to sip bone broth. Not just any bone broth! A solid, homemade broth made with serious attention to detail is what you want.

That kind of bone broth requires starting with a mix of bones and parts high in collagen. These include wings, joints, knuckles and feet. You may think you can toss these into a pan and go. But here’s a pro tip: place your meat cuts in your stock pot, fill with water and let boil for a solid 20 minutes. You’ll notice scum rising to the surface. This is what you want to get rid of – foamy, gray scum contains toxins and bits you don’t want.

Once that’s done, drain the cooking water off and continue with a good roasting.

Remove the bones and transfer to a large roasting pan. This process will enhance flavor through the caramelization that will happen as a result of roasting the bones and meat bits.
