Many have shared their expertise as to why we need this nourishing food in our diets. I’d like to share from one of my very favorite cookbook authors (and a farmer!), Shannon Hayes, who quotes another favorite cookbook author of mine, Sally Fallon:
The Elements of Broth: (from Long Way on a Little by Shannon Hayes)
According to Sally Fallon and Mary Enig, nutritionists and authors of the book Nourishing Traditions, broth contains the minerals of bone, cartilage, marrow and vegetables in the form of electrolytes, ionic solutions that are easy to assimilate into the body. They also contain proteinacious gelatin, which supplies hydrophilic colloids to the diet, a property that attracts your stomach’s digestive juices to the surface of cooked food particles; this is especially beneficial for folks suffering from intestinal disorders such as hyperacidity, colitis and Crohn’s disease. Moreover, in hard times, when meat seems too expensive to serve daily, the gelatin in bone broth and demi-glace helps the body fully utilize other proteins that are ingested. And, of course, there are the time-tested remedies of good broth for relieving the symptoms of colds, flu, myriad forms of gastroenteritis, and even bone injuries.
We at the farm have bone broth every single day. Whether as a quick and easy hot mug of broth, or utilized in a delicious homemade soup, we enjoy partaking of this nutrient dense liquid! During the winter months, it is easy to incorporate our nourishing chicken broth, and we have also found ways in the warmer seasons to enjoy the benefits of bone broth!
