Bone broth is one of the best keto-friendly foods you should be making (and its easy!). Bone broth is perfect in cooking to boost the flavor of meals or to add healthy gelatin and nutrients to keto meals. Drinking bone broth is one of my favorite ways to get sodium, magnesium and potassium and beat out “keto-flu”. Just pour some in a mug – sip and enjoy! Here is How to Make Keto Bone Broth.
Why is bone broth good for you?
- Heals leaky gut
- High in minerals (calcium, phosphorus)
- Amazing for your thyroid
- Fights adrenal fatigue from abuse of stimulants (like caffeine)
- Lot of electrolytes (magnesium, sodium and potassium) – helps beat and cure “keto-flu”
- Great source of gelatin and collagen. Keeps your joints, ligaments, tendons and bones healthy.
- Assists with muscle repair – good for people that workout a lot
- Stronger nails and hair
My Ingredients Used:
- 3-4 Garlic cloves (as much as you want)
- 1-2 tablespoon Himalayan Salt
- Any spice you want for flavor – I used David’s peri peri seasoning..(GMO free)
- 4-5 Bay leaves
So a lot of people have been asking me how to make bone broth soup which I started making a couple of weeks ago so I thought I’d make a quick video of how I make it and what I put in it. So I got my slow cooker here. In it you’ll see there’s already some water here. I usually use filtered water, fill it up to the level of bones as well as some bay leaves are in here, I also add this here which is available locally here, it’s a local product and it’s a seasoning, has no carbs or anything in it. I usually put two or three table spoons of that. Obviously we need apple cider and vinegar to help break down the bones and bring all the nutrients out. Two table spoons of that works. You also want to add some good salts in there, I use Himalayan salt.
A lot of people add vegetables in that, I don’t. I usually only add garlic so add to taste whatever you like. And then when I go over here, so here’s the bones I’m using. It’s better to get like a knuckle or like a shoulder, something with a lot of joint tissue for your soup to get more gelatinous and a lot more collagen in there. But this works well too. Right now the butcher didn’t have it available so I bought some beef bones. You can see all the marrow that’s in here. I roasted it for ten to twenty minutes, fifteen to twenty minutes sorry. Three fifty, this is what happens. So it’s actually better for the bones to be roasted, it helps break down when it’s inside the slow cooker.
I’m also adding pig feet so a lot of collagen in here, a lot of good stuff. just rinse it well and then you put it inside and then what I’ll do is ill put it all in here and then I’ll put it on to low and keep it there for about two days and in two days I go in there and mix. it works really well, and then I drain it and then what I’ll do is ill refill it up with filtered water again adding back the bay leaves and spices in there, whatever you want to add and using the same bone, same pig feet, do another batch. You can get one or two solid batches out of it, possibly even a third depending on how good your bones are. But you don’t have to get rid of the bones after the first batch. Get some use out of them and that’s it. So that’s my quick video, I’ll show you the end result in two days.
Here’s after one day so we are half way there. I’ll show you what it looks like. So you can see a lot of the part are looking like they are getting cooked. Let me see if I can bring this out. So this here is one of the pig feet still a long way to go but it’s definitely smelling good. Let me see if I can get one of these marrow bones out here. So you can actually see all the marrow inside here. Well done. It’s a lot of marrow in there. Lot of good stuff so it will come out as it cooks and it will actually fall right out of the bone which sometimes I leave it in but I try to fish it out and eat it separately.
I’ll show you the end result of my bone broth. So here it is. It came out really gelatinous so it’s excellent. The pig feet really helped out. Again why bone broth is really good for you it’s really helps when you get keto adapted. It’s a great fat source, some of the things that we all know. Rich in electrolytes, magnesium, sodium and potassium, great source. It really helps to fight keto flu as well. One of the other ones, it helps with joints because its gelatine collagen that’s in there really great for your skin and bones and ligaments. It helps muscle repair as well. great if you’re really physically active, muscle repair and actually quick recovery is a really great thing with drinking bone broth and you know strengthen your nails and hair, that’s a given. It also helps with a flu or cold, just drink a glass like I am having here of bone broth soup and great for thyroid health as well and helping fight adrenal fatigue for people drinking too much coffee or too much caffeine actually. It can really help rebuild and restore that. I definitely recommend trying it, its super simple, you just got to set it and forget it for two days and then you get this great stuff. That batch that I showed you earlier made about four or five big yogurt containers which I put in the freezer to freeze, then I just take it out whenever I want, I have one of these every day and it’s fantastic. Alright, thanks guys.
