Chicken Bone Broth

Chicken Bone Broth

There is nothing better to boost your immune system than a good hearty homemade bone both soup packed with lots and lots of nutritious vegetable and off course protein!

It was a staple in my house whenever anyone was feeling ill. It’s true comfort food! Tasty easy to eat and so very nutritious.
 
The broth itself is done by simmering animal bones and bone marrow, tendons, laments, cartridges, anything that you wouldn’t necessarily eat directly but that still offers nutritional components. By simmering bones and other tissues, you will be releasing compounds such as collagen, glutamine, calcium, magnesium, glucosamine and other nutrients beneficial to health.

My favorite has always been Chicken bone broth. Once the broth is done you can add in anything you want really… its hard to go wrong!

Chicken Bone Broth:

Ingrediens:

  • 1 whole chicken (skin taken off)
  • 2 celery sticks, roughly chopped
  • 2 rosemary brunches
  • 1 small bunch of parsley 
  • 3 garlic cloves, halved
  • 2 spring onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 onion, halved
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • Salt to taste
  • Water

Method:

1. Place all ingredients in to a pan and add enough water to cover the whole chicken.

2. Simmer for about 1.5-2hrs (the longer the better).

3. Take the chicken out of the pan (ready to be de-boned and used to make soup or any other dish)

4. Sieve the liquid to separate the stock to the rest and there you have it! Homemade Chicken Bone Broth! :)

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

Raspberry Frozen Yogurt

This recipe is super easy and quick to make! Another great recipe for adults and kids alike! The raspberries provide lots of antioxidants, fibre and vitamins while the yogurt provides calcium and a little protein (for a higher protein recipe click here). Agave Nectar is a wonderful natural sweetener. I like my frozen yogurt a touch tart, but if you have a sweet tooth, you can always add more Agave or sweetness to keep the calories low

 

Ingredients:

  • 350g Frozen Raspberries
  • 150g Fat Free Formage Frais (or any other yogurt)
  • 30g Agave Nectar
  • 1 tbsp lime juice


 

Method:

  • Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend for about 2 minutes or until smooth.
  • Server straight away or freeze.

Enjoy :)

I am not sure how long it lasts in the freezer as over here it is usually gone before the week is over! But it should last up to a month (at least) in the freezer.
