Make your Veggies Taste Great with Bone BrothBy Kali HarmenIf you make bone broth you can use it to simmer your veggies in and they will taste lovely, full of flavour! Bone broth has been used throughout the centuries in many different traditions around the world, it’s only in the last 30 + years that people have veered away from home cooking in favour of quick, ready- made meals. A well-made bone broth will contain cartilage, minerals from the bone, gelatine, and other nutrients. This can aid digestion, heal the digestive tract, help build the cells that line the gut and may even help prevent and mitigate infectious diseases. In the 12th century chicken broth was used as a treatment for colds and asthma by physician Moses Maimonides. Bone broth is not only rich in calcium, phosphorous, magnesium and potassium but also contains glucosamine and chondroitin. These are often bought as supplements to aid conditions such as joint pain and arthritis. The gelatine from the broth also has many health advantages as is being used in the treatment of chronic disorders such as anaemia, diabetes, cancer and muscular dystrophy. Gelatine also helps to keep fingernails and hair strong. These are only a few of the reasons why broth is not only a worthy supplement to our diet but also a nourishing base to make many other meals from.
