Benefits of Bone Broth
As we approach flu season, bone broth is especially beneficial to support your immune health. Bone broth can help us recover more efficiently when we're sick due to the anti-inflammatory and gut healing properties. When everything is running smoothly inside, the gut sends signals for the development of healthy immune-fighting responses. Bone broth’s amino acids help to restore the strength of our gut lining, which influences our body's ability to fight off harmful cold-causing bacteria.
Bone broth also provides minerals like calcium, phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, and potassium and is incredibly unique because it contains collagen amino acids like glycine and arginine. And the marrow gives you vitamins A, B2, B12, and E, omega-3s, omega-6s, and minerals like calcium, iron, selenium, and zinc.
Fond's Three Day Reset
A bone broth cleanse can be beneficial during the flu and cold season to reboot your system, give your digestive system a break, and heal your gut. I recently did a three-day reset with FOND Bone Broth as a nourishing way to start the school year. We do a lot as parents, and sometimes we forget to prioritize our health. Incorporating a bone broth cleanse is a satisfying and non-traditional way of doing just that. For three days, you’ll sip on four jars of FOND every day, with an addition of two Fab 4 meals filled with reset-supportive foods. No deprivation or stress here - just a supported path to wellness. They also provide a PDF for reset-supportive recipes after purchasing the FOND’s Bone Broth Reset Bundle. The code BEWELLBYKELLY gets you 20% off your order or 10% off your subscription monthly; check them out here.
This reset allowed me to start the school year feeling my best. Plus, FOND is a mission-driven company started by a mom of 5 on the road to healing herself! Can you imagine starting a company with that many babies? It is an amazing company I was introduced to at a regenerative farming conference and have been hooked ever since.
My Favorite Bone Broths
There are a ton of brands jumping on the bone broth train, so you definitely want to check the quality before you buy. FOND, Kettle & Fire, and Bonafide Provisions are some of my go-to’s.
- Fond is my favorite shelf stable glass bone broth. I love to cook with it to enhance my meals or even drink it on ice; it's that good. The lemon garlic and turmeric flavors are my favorites, but you can't go wrong with any of them. It's the perfect gut-loving bridge snack to calm cravings and a drink that feels like a hug for those who need it most.
- Kettle & Fire’s pre-made bone broth comes in a small shelf-stable box, making it a great option to stock up on and use for quick recipes that require a cup of broth, like my shredded chicken curry recipe. For 15% off of your Kettle & Fire order, enter the code BEWELLBYKELLY at checkout.
- If I am looking to sip on broth or heat a clean pre-made organic chicken vegetable soup, I also love using Bonafide Provisions frozen broth for making flavorful sauces! For 20% off Bonafide Provisions use code KELLY at checkout.
Just one serving of bone broth contains 10-16 grams of protein per serving, making it easy to increase your daily protein intake. Protein is the most satiating macro-nutrient and provides the most nutrient dense bite per ounce, so including it in meals and regularly throughout the day is a must for your gut health, your satisfaction level, and blood sugar and hormone balance. These bone broths are delicious on their own, but also easy to incorporate into meals for extra flavor, protein, and nutrients.
