Best Soup Ever

BoneBrothThere are two kinds of soups…good…bad.  I’m not talking about what tastes god or bad, rather how the soup is made.  Good, is clear broth, bad, is thickened with dairy, grains or legumes.  Anthropologists say mans’ brain development was due, in part, to his consumption of proteins from cracked animal bones. Bone broth also contains collagen, essential for joint health as well as skin, hair, and nail health.  Bone broth is also rich in nutrients, antioxidants, and amino acids glycine and proline, essential for cell repair and growth.  You can’t go wrong with bone broth.  Any butcher can supply you with rich bones to make your soup.  Boil your bones with root vegetables like carrots and onions.  Add parsnips or celery and garlic.  Cook it for hours.  The longer, the better.  You can find bone broth recipes all over the place but make sure you try to use bones from grass fed livestock, rather than grain fed.
