This Thanksgiving, don’t throw away the turkey bones! Instead, use them to make a deeply nourishing, healing, tummy-warming bone broth. Unlike other broths made from pork or chicken, turkey broth is immensely flavorful yet light and versatile. Don’t forget the cider vinegar when cooking, as the acidity helps draw out nutrients, trace minerals, and healing components from the bones.
The nutritional benefits of bone broth are tremendous! Marinate on these 3 reasons to enjoy bone broth while it cooks away
1. Healthy Gut: Bone broth is packed with gelatin and healing amino acids. These can protect and soothe the lining of the small intestines and can aid in managing IBS, crohn’s, ulcerative colitis and leaky gut.
2. Bone Health: The boiled down cartilage in the broth is rich in calcium, magnesium, glucosamine, and other minerals that not only help reduce joint pain and inflammation but also plays an important role in healthy bone formation.
3. Gorgeous Skin: Bone broth is rich in glycine which makes collagen, the building block of healthy and supple skin. Drink broth to reduce wrinkles? Why not!
