If you haven’t tried bone broth yet, you are seriously missing out…seriously!
It is freaking amazing for so many reasons, but my personal favorite is the fact that it’s an amazing detox agent that’s extremely healing for your gut and immune system.
A Few Amazing Benefits of Bone Broth:

- Boosts immune function (3, 4, 5)
- Improves joint and teeth health (6, 7)
- Supports healthy hair, skin, and nails (8)
- Promotes protein synthesis with it’s high levels of amino acids (7, 8)
These are just a few of my favorite benefits, but honestly, the list can go on and on.
So now you can see why I’m going to tell you that you NEED to have some bone broth in your life!
It may not be for everyone, but I highly encourage you to try it out and see for yourself. Don’t knock it till you try it!!! 😉
Now I prefer to make my own broth because it’s stupid easy, but if you can’t find the time, right ingredients, or are just plain lazy (let’s be real it happens) you can always buy it as well. Here are two great options for high quality bone broth:

If you’re down to try your hand at making it give this recipe a try:
Crock-Pot Chicken Bone Broth Recipe:
Total time: 12-24 hours
Use organic ingredients and parts from pasture fed chickens.
- 3-4 pounds of whole chicken carcasses, feet, necks, and/or wings.
- 3 celery stalks, leafs included, chopped
- 3 carrots, unpeeled and chopped
- 2 medium onions, unpeeled and quartered
- 4 cloves of garlic, unpeeled and smashed
- 1 tsp whole pepper corns
- 1 TBS sea salt
- 3 TBS of apple cider vinegar
- 2 bay leaves
- 3 sprigs of fresh thyme
- 5 sprigs of parsley
- 1 tsp oregano
- Crock-Pot full of water
- Place all ingredients in a large Crock-Pot.
- Add water to cover ingredients, but not so bones are floating.
- Simmer for 12-24 hours, the longer the better, occasionally scrapping fat off of surface.
- Once cooked, use colander to strain solids.
- Add a few cups of ice, cover and chill immediately, to prevent bacteria formation.
- Store in fridge up to a week or freezer up to 3 months.
You can also do the same using beef bones with the additional step of roasting them for 30 minutes at 350 degrees first, to improve flavor. You can also increase the cook time to 48 hours with thicker bones.
Boom. That’s how you make a killer healing bone broth.
