Paleo Bone Broth
Bone broth should become a staple for anyone who’s starting a journey into the Paleo diet and lifestyle. You can use paleo bone broth regularly for soups, sauces, stews, curries and just about any dish that requires cooking a piece of meat or vegetable in a liquid.
Paleo bone broth might be about the last nutrition powerhouse that a lot of Paleo dieters aren’t making use of. In the paleo diet, bones should be a main staple of one’s diet along with plenty of fresh meat and fat from animals, organ meats and nutrients from fruits and vegetables.
You can make a paleo bone broth from virtually any kind of bones including those from Bison, chicken, beef, pork, lamb, and fish.
Wild animals have some of the healthiest bones because they eat a diet that’s evolutionarily correct for their digestive systems. Their bones contain all the nutrients they need, and game makes delicious paleo bone broth.
Bone stock contains 2 important amino acids for the paleo diet – proline and glycine – in addition to minerals and collagen.
Glycine supports detoxification and helps the body synthesize collagen. It aids in wound healing and supports the release of growth hormones.
Proline tightens and builds cell structures, strengthening them. A strong collagen structure heals leaky guts, reduces the appearance of cellulite, and improves the strength of skin and vein walls.
A good bone broth will always be gelatinous after it has been cooled. Concentrated bone broth where a great part of the gelatin has been extracted from the bones will be thick and gelatinous when cold. If doing a paleo diet:
It makes a wonderful cold weather drink straight from a mug, and works wonders when you’re feeling under the weather.
It’s especially helpful for people dealing with digestive problems or gut flora imbalances.
Nutrients that we seldom get in our modern diets, such as collagen, gelatin and glucosamine, are extracted. These nutrients are some of the main building blocks of the digestive system and help it stay healthy.
