The practice of making bone broth has been part of the diets of many cultures for centuries upon centuries. You can either make your own or easily find pasture raised chicken or beef bone broth at your farmers market or grocery store.
On top of having a rich amount of bone and muscle building minerals like calcium, magnesium and potassium, bone broth is also a very rich source of gelatin and collagen. These forms of protein are abundant in muscle building amino acids and make up a large portion of our skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. So if you want supple skin, flexible joints and better mobility, adding broth to your diet is a great idea. And broth is definitely a better source of collagen than the powdered forms lining the shelves of supplements stores.
Here's my recipe for a nutritious and delicious way to start to your day!
Combine broth and vegetables in a sauce pan. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes to soften.
While the water is simmering, crack an egg into a small bowl, then gently slide the egg into the simmering broth. Wait a few seconds and then repeat the process with the remaining eggs. Allow eggs to poach in broth for 2-3 minutes, depending on your preference for doneness.
Serve in soup bowl and top with micro greens, parsley, cilantro or other herbs of your choice.
