Brew some Broth
With all those glossy-haired foodies cooking it up like mad, bone broth has become the winter equivalent of green juice. It can sort gut issues, revive energy, and keep hair and nails healthy – and devotees are downing it to keep their immunity humming and beat bugs that slip through the cracks.
The recipe It’s so simple. Just place bones in a pot, cover with water, simmer for several hours, then strain. The timeframe Simmer for six hours or so for chicken bones, and 12 hours for beef or lamb bones. Experts reckon the slow cooking extracts the collagen, amino acids and minerals from the bones – and you get to drink them.
Use it in dishes like soup. Or you could make it a health ritual and down a cupful a day; you might like to season it to make it a little more palatable. If a cold hits, add some garlic or grated ginger.
