Bone broth is one of those things that my body just craves. Whether I’m on the verge of getting sick, detoxing from a long weekend of drinking and eating, or if it’s just straight-up cold outside - bone broth always hits the spot.
While there are many brands out there, I haven’t found one I like more than Bonafide Provisions, which can be found in the freezer aisle of most grocery stores. Disclaimer: Bonafide’s broth is not cheap (it ranges from $7-$10/bag depending on the store; each bag has about 2 servings), but they use organic ingredients and the flavor is out of this world.
If you’re not into paying for it, bone broth can also easily be made at home (you can find my mom’s recipe here.) I never seem to find the time or have the patience to make my own, so we always keep a bag or two of Bonafide in our freezer to either drink on its own, with the recipe below, or to add more flavor and protein to soups, stews, and stir fries.
-1 bag Bonafide Provisions, any flavor (chicken is my favorite, more mild; but all are delicious)
-Juice of 1 lemon
-1 tablespoon ghee (4th and Heart grassfed ghee is my fave)
-1 tsp apple cider vinegar
-salt and pepper to taste
-fresh cut ginger
Directions: Place bone broth in a small saucepan over medium heat until warm (may need to thaw if taking it directly from freezer, as it is sold at most markets). Once at your desired drinking temperature, add all of the other ingredients. Stir well, then let flavors meld for another minute or two. If using garlic or ginger, let that cook in the broth for longer, about 5 minutes. Turn off heat and pour into a mug. Sip and enjoy.
