7 REASONS TO INCLUDE BONE BROTH IN YOUR KETO DIET + RECIPE

 Bone broth seems a little strange to some people.

I know that when I suggested it to my aunt when she started keto, she didn't seem impressed!

Incorporating Keto Bone Broth into your weekly diet can have huge health benefits, so it is very good for the keto.


After all, bone broth is what we've had for years without knowing it - what do you think the most delicious broth is made of?

Whether it's your grandmother's chicken soup or your favourite restaurant's slow-cooker stew, chances are it has a rich, hearty broth as a base.

The best broth, whether it's keto or not, is bone broth.



A few notes on the recipe below - it's only a basic recipe but you can really use whatever you have on hand.
My favorite is the chicken bones after roasting a chicken, as the end result has that "grandma's chicken soup" flavor and is so comforting in cold weather.

Last year I had a really terrible flu, the kind where you can barely get out of bed and certainly can't cook.
I didn't have much appetite but I felt like I needed fuel and food in my body. I was so tempted to order food without a ketone...
I set up the slow cooker with chicken bones, some vegetables and had a cup of chicken broth every two hours for almost a week.
I swear I could feel this stuff making me better!
I also use the broth to cook regularly as a replacement for broth in my keto meals.
I pour the rest of the broth into a silicone muffin pan and freeze them, then put them in a freezer bag so they're ready to sear and microwave when you need them.

HERE ARE 7 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD HAVE A KETO BONE BROTH

1. DIGESTIVE HEALING
For many people, the keto can be a last resort to control digestive problems.
Many doctors have long believed that our intestines control our health, and more and more studies are underway to confirm this.
It is the center of everything that happens in our body and is our "second brain".
If you have ongoing digestive problems, the natural gelatin and collagen in bone broth can help heal and seal your intestines, allowing them to get more nutrition from your food.

2. STRENGTHENING THE IMMUNE SYSTEM
Your grandmother won't be surprised by this, but bone broth has many benefits for your immune system.
There's a reason why when we're sick, we crave chicken soup! Bone broth naturally contains amino acids, glutamine, glycine and lipids, all of which are extremely helpful to your body in fighting infections and producing white blood cells.
A Harvard study has linked bone broth to symptom relief for people with autoimmune disorders - it's not a placebo!

3. BETTER SLEEP
Who doesn't want to sleep better? I know I do!
Bone broth naturally contains wisteria, which has been shown to help you sleep better and improve memory.

4. HEALTHIER SKIN, TEETH AND HAIR
Natural collagen and bone broth gelatin are extremely important for our skin, teeth and hair.
Drinking this stuff every day if you can will give you succulent locks and long nails in no time.
I find that my hair is shinier within a week of drinking delicious keto bone broth.
 
5. APPETITE CONTROL
You're coming home from work and you're hungry?
Instead of robbing the fridge before dinner, a cup of hot broth will delight you.
Similarly, if you are fasting or regularly use intermittent fasting in your diet, a cup of bone broth may be the perfect way to help you when you are tired of tea, coffee and water.
It seems more substantial and will usually be between 50 and 70 calories per cup.
Many people fast in keto broth rather than water alone, as it can be a great way to keep your electrolytes in place (see #7!).

6. SIX THESE KETO BROTH MACROS
Depending on the bones used, amount of water, cooking time, etc., bone broth is usually about 70 calories per cup, with 4 to 6 grams of fat and 4 to 6 grams of protein - and essentially no carbohydrates at all! Hello keto heaven!
 
7. ALL IMPORTANT ELECTROLYTES ON KETO
You may already know this, but electrolytes are essential to your success on the keto.
So often those who are stagnant, hold weight, feel unwell or lack energy are actually low in electrolytes.
Electrolytes are made up of sodium, potassium and salt, and bone broth is naturally high in all three! Add a little extra salt to your broth if you drink it as it is for an electrolyte power plant.


Okay, so are you convinced why you should include bone broth in your keto diet?

Please try it, it's unbelievable stuff and it's a great way to get started!


Here is a basic recipe to try for Keto Bone Broth, after which you can start experimenting with whatever you have on hand.
It will go gelatinous in the refrigerator, which is perfectly what you want. Warm it up again for a perfect bone broth.
 

Keto bone broth is life - so many health benefits, and perfect for having any recipe that requires broth or stock on hand.


Recipe 
 
 Preparation time 10 minutes
 Portions 9

Ingredients
 
1 kg soup bones These can be left on a roast or soup bones from the supermarket.
3 carrots coarsely chopped
2 stalks of celery coarsely chopped
1 onion, coarsely chopped
5 cloves of garlic, peeled
2 bay leaves
2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar
 
Instructions
 
If your bones are raw, roast them in the oven at 200 degrees for 25 minutes. 
Put all the ingredients in a slow cooker and fill with water. 
Simmer for at least 24 hours. You can simmer all week, filling with more water as needed, even if it tastes better in the first 24 to 48 hours. 
Once cooked, you can strain and store in a plastic jar in the refrigerator, or otherwise pour into silicone muffin trays and freeze for future use. 
 
Recipe Notes
 
I have not included nutritional information for this recipe because you do not eat the vegetables and only the broth. It is usually 70 calories per cup, with 4 grams of fat, 4 grams of protein and no carbohydrates. 
Try this with every bone you have! I keep my roast chicken bones in the freezer until I have enough to make broth, rather than wasting them because there is not enough. 

Enjoy the soup!
