There is a large amount of evidence for the benefits of bone broth. Correctly made, it contains calcium, magnesium and gelatin. It reduces inflammation, helps with joint health and also promotes good digestion. It is a great staple of an LCHF diet.
A pressure cooker is essential to make this broth to avoid having your ingredients boiling for 12 hours.
I cook the leftover carcass of a free range roasted chicken with salt, pepper and some bay leaves in the pressure cooker for 45 minutes to get a very full flavoured chicken broth. When on a LCHF diet, it helps to get salt into your diet as there is no salt incoming to the body from processed food.
Lunch today consisted of left over roast chicken with guacamole and a large cup of chicken broth, ideal for warming you up on a cold day.
