Supporting Your Body Naturally Through Sickness

1 August 2017

It's that time of year, I’ve seen my clients hit by the flu, one by one, and hoping I manage to avoid it...

Every winter I do the following to boost my immune system. Touch wood, I haven’t been hit by the flu just yet, I’ve managed to get away with some sniffles, so I must be doing something right.

My Bone Broth recipe (Referenced in audio blog.)

Ingredients:

  • 1 Chicken carcass (I like to use organic). You can also use beef bones here instead.
  • For extra bonus points add some chicken feet.
  • 1 Onion chopped
  • 2 carrots chopped
  • 1/2 bunch of celery
  • Tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (helps to draw the goodness out of the bones)
  • A bunch of parsley
  • A couple of cloves of garlic

Instructions:

  • Put the chicken carcass in a large pan. Add 2 litres of filtered water and add the vinegar. I let it sit for 20 – 30 minutes whilst I chop up all the vegetables.
  • I add all the ingredients and some salt and pepper, and slowly bring to a boil. Once it's boiled I leave to simmer on the lowest setting.
  • I usually leave mine like this for up to 24 hours, and allow it to cool before skimming the surface and draining the ingredients using a sieve.

You can use the broth in replacement of stock in your meals or soups, or drink by the cup.

It will be ok in the fridge for 3 or 4 days. I make a huge batch and freeze the rest.
