Cold and flu season has attacked my household pretty bad this year. Nolan started school and has brought home every single cold and bug you can think of. While I am happy that with each one, it builds our immune systems a little more, I am so over being sick! Last weekend I visited my sister and she cooked a huge crockpot turmeric and bone broth soup to help strengthen our bodies.
Turmeric and bone broth are two things that everyone should have permanently stocked in their pantries. Turmeric is a healing spice with many health benefits. It can be used to help as a decongestant, liver detox, cancer preventive, antibiotic, etc. Take the time to look up all of its healing properties and become just as amazed with it as I am.
Bone broth is something that I can honestly say we use daily when cooking. I add it to my coffee, oatmeal, sautéed veggies (deglazes the pan and makes a great sauce), use in place of water for quinoa, rice and of course soups! The health benefits for bone broth are lengthy and can help heal so many things in the human body. Allergies, anxiety, bloating, brittle hair and nails, cold and flu, chrons disease, fatigue, IBS, leaky gut, menopause, PMS, slow metabolism, and low immunity just to name a FEW! I received this product in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Read my disclaimer page for more information.
We use the Bonafide Provisions brand of bone broth because we know the high quality that they use. This brand was started by two nutritionist who needed bone broths for their sick clients. They are a family owned company that takes pride in creating these broths with only the best ingredients so you get the best bang for your buck! I love that they are available nationwide in the freezer section so you will never miss out on them. They have different types of organic bone broth available to suit your specific needs, I use the chicken bone broth the most out of each of them. Their chicken bone broth is the base of my immune boosting soup and I am including the recipe below.
