So Simple You Won’t Believe It!

Mineral rich, belly healing bone broth (<—my home made recipe) sliced green onions (or other greens), an egg and five minutes, that’s all you need to make this warm, comforting, delicious soup! And best of all there are only two steps: bring the broth to a boil and drizzle in whisked eggs. That’s it!

Why Bone Broth?

Bone broth is nutrient dense. It contains vitamins and minerals that are easily absorbed by the body  including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, silicon, sulfur chondroitin, glucosamine, and a variety of trace minerals. Bone broth is rich in gelatin which supports healthy digestion. Broth has natural anti-inflammatory properties and inhibits infections…hence it is commonly referred to as  “Jewish Penicillin”.

Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner…You Decide

Sometimes I have this simple soup for breakfast, other times lunch or dinner. If you have a hard time working bone broth into your day it’s the perfect solution. As usual I recommending, adding avocado slices if you happen to have a ripe avo on hand!
