It’s National Bone Broth Day! This savory broth is often referred to as liquid gold because not only is it delicious, but it’s a nutrient powerhouse!
Benefits of bone broth:
Bone broth’s claim to nutritional fame is that it is a packed with protein. Specifically, when bone broth is made by simmering bones such as chicken and beef, it releases collagen protein into the broth. Collagen is a key component of cartilage, which cushions and supports joints; it’s essential for maintaining the elasticity and hydration of skin, and supports gut health due to its high level of glycine, an important amino acid that supports the integrity of the digestive tract. Not only that, but protein is a satiating macronutrient that can support weight management by helping you feel fuller, longer, and is vital for muscle growth and maintenance.
The different types of bone broths:
It’s important to note that not all store-bought bone broths are created equal. I recommend Pacific Foods Bone Broths because they are made from non-GMO, organic-certified ingredients like chicken and beef slow-simmered alongside flavorful vegetables, herbs and cider vinegar, so they are full of pure flavor and naturally occurring collagen. Each cup serving of Pacific bone broth contains 9 grams of protein and about 40 calories.
How to enjoy bone broth:
Beyond its health benefits, bone broth is a versatile ingredient that can be enjoyed in many ways. For a mindful moment to recharge, bone broth is perfect for nutritious sipping. Enjoy it in place of your morning coffee or tea, or as a protein-packed afternoon pick-me-up. You can even enjoy it as a workout boost. The high-water content in bone broth coupled with its naturally occurring electrolytes including potassium, sodium and calcium, can help you stay hydrated. Additionally, the protein found in bone broth is essential for muscle maintenance and repair. And whether you’re keto, paleo, gluten-free or just looking for a simple way to add a delicious protein boost to your favorite recipes, Pacific Foods’ bone broths have exactly what you need. Use bone broth as a nutritious, flavorful high protein base for soups, stews, sauces and gravies, or substitute water with bone broth when cooking grains like rice or quinoa for an extra layer of taste. No matter what way you choose to enjoy it, you can’t go wrong adding bone broth to your day!
