On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing the health benefits of bone broth, collagen, and gelatin, and showing you how to make the best bone broth in seconds.
When Jessica and I were pregnant with our first baby girl, Kyla, our health care provider recommended we start taking bone broth.
If you’ve never heard of bone broth before, let me tell you why bone broth is good for you.
Bone broth is full of the unique nutrients your body requires for proper:
Bone broth is loaded with protein, and is an excellent source of collagen and gelatin.
Here’s why you should care about consuming more collagen and gelatin.
Collagen is a special protein found in the skin and connective tissues.
Unfortunately as you age, a reduction in collagen occurs, causing you to experience wrinkles and saggy skin.
Consuming more collagen in your diet can help:
Protein, collagen, and gelatin contain the key nutrients your body requires for:
An excellent way to get more collagen into your diet, is bone broth.
As a dude who plans on being in front of the camera for the next 65 years, I say count me in.
However, it’s one thing to throw a steak on the BBQ, but it’s a whole new experience trying to brew up a pot full of bones.
Let me share a quick story about our first experience trying to make homemade bone broth.
I always heard about the health benefits of bone broth.
However, Jessica and I were a little intimidated to attempt making our own homemade bone broth.
Here’s how it went down.
Jessica found a bone broth recipe online, made a list, then went to the grocery store to pick up the ingredients.
The total cost of the ingredients to make our own bone broth was very expensive.
The ingredients to make homemade bone broth cost us approximately $45!
It’s also very time consuming, as it took us more than 20 hours to make this homemade bone broth recipe.
Lastly, let’s be real, it’s a little bit nasty.
However, after we figured out how to make it, the bone broth did taste good.
Probably not very often.
The reason we won’t be making homemade bone broth often is because:
This is very unfortunate because bone broth is so healthy, and we want to keep taking it.
Fortunately, you can now buy ready to eat bone broth from a carton.
I typically always recommend making food from scratch, rather than eating something from a carton.
Buying the right type of fresh and ready to eat bone broth is one of the exceptions.
Focus on finding bone broth that comes from grass fed beef, not conventional beef.
When the bone broth comes from grass fed beef, it’s much higher in healthy omega3 fats and many other nutrients.
Grass fed beef also shouldn’t have added hormones sometimes found in conventional beef.
Look for bone broth with:
One Bone Broth brand that fits all these requirements is Kettle & Fire.
