Warm and nourishing, there is something profoundly healing about a good cuppa broth. Tristan and I started reforming our diet nearly 6 years ago with a strong focus on nutrient dense foods, animal protein and healthy sources of fat. One of our first “new” things to try was a homemade bone broth recipe. We were hooked after the first sip! Now I included a homemade bone broth recipe in my weekly meal prep at least every other week.

When I started drafting my first cookbook, The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook, I knew including broth recipes was a must. The broth section developed into an entire chapter dedicated to organ meats and odd bits. I published 3 simple ways to make broth with the classic sources of bones – beef, chicken and fish. There are a handful of recipes that use broth as a base for soups, warm drinks, and in vegetable dishes like Braised Green Cabbage.

Homemade BONE BROTH Recipe
Watch my recipe video here!
Handling bones for the first time in my life was a little odd. Previous to learning how to make broth myself, I’d only seen it come in a box on the grocery store shelf. Based on all the evidence of important nutritional qualities and healing benefits, we were quite sure that a homemade bone broth recipe was worth trying out. I had to apply some mental jiu jitsu and overcome my culturally constructed disconnection and aversion to working with animal parts, but it was well worth it! I can still remember the first experience of straining out a pot of broth. There were so many bits and pieces I couldn’t recognize! I tried bone marrow ever so hesitantly…I had no idea it would be so good! I felt some part of me come alive, something that had been buried down deep for a while.

Just Buy it Instead
I totally understand if you want high-quality, organically made super nourishing bone broth but aren’t interested in making it yourself. Source a shelf-stable broth from Kettle and Fire instead. They will deliver delicious broths to your door and save you time, energy and effort. Choose from grass-fed beef or free-range organic chicken.
Flavor Your Broth
I’m happy sipping cup of broth flavored with some of my favorite salts from Mountain Rose Herbs. They also have some great herbal blends – many of the classics like Italian, Mexican and Thai flavors are nice to sprinkle in to broth. If you have The Ketogenic Edge Cookbook, you can learn to make you own homemade seasoning blends from Chapter 4: Herbs and Spices.
