Nourishment Notes

Bone Broth

Bone broth is nutrient dense and adds moisture, making it easier to swallow. It also may help promote healing as well as help lower the risk for infection or illness, maintain healthy skin, and promote a healthy gut.

Fatigue Buster

  • Cook on Stove

    If you don’t own an Instantpot®, this recipe can be prepared by cooking all of the ingredients in a large pot on the stove for 8-10 hours.

  • Pre-Made Bone Broth

    Although it may not contain as high amount of beneficial nutrients, bone broth can also be purchased pre-made at most grocery retail locations. Look for grass-fed, hormone-free based broth if possible.
