Bone Broth For Beginners

Bone Broth For Beginners

The doctor told my friend Jack, not to eat gluten, corn or dairy and to have 2 cups of bone broth a day. The diagnosis was Leaky Gut Syndrome. This happens when the processed food everyone eats creates little holes in your intestines. Food particles, not fully digested, seep out into your body, going places they were not meant to go, creating allergic reactions. Apparently, the syndrome is pretty common today and may account for premature aging and other maladies.

Bone broth is said to repair the holes. The collagen and amino acids coat the lining of your intestine. The doctor also told Jack to avoid gluten, corn and dairy, which are among the foods with the most allergens and hardest to digest. Okay, I am not a doctor, but I have a black belt in google-fu and I like to experiment in cooking. So here is what I figured out:
