It is winter in beautiful Arizona. Temperatures are dropping, skies are cloudy, and the furry clothes are on! It is finally winter and… soup season! Winter is my favorite season in Arizona as it is a short period of time in the state that we can start incorporating soups, teas, and warm broths into our diets. Below I have provided a simple broth recipe that I just made for this season.
I love having bone broth. There are so many health benefits to ingesting bone broth. It is the broth derived after slow cooking animal bones in water with spices and herbs. It is known to have gut healing properties, helps with bone and joint issues (or to just keep them strong), helps with hair skin and nail health, and so much more! This is because the collagen is derived from slow cooking the bones. I highly recommend giving this bone broth recipe a try!
