Chicken and cannellini bean soup
Have you embraced the bone broth trend? More than just a fad, this wholesome ingredient is not just another word for stock. You’ve probably heard that bone broth is good for you, but perhaps are less aware of the reasons why. Bone broth is slow cooked for hours to extract all the gelatin from the bones. Gelatin is soothing on the digestive tract, making it a healthy option for sufferers of IBS and food allergies. Gelatin also helps increase collagen production in the body, which helps improve skin health.
Other nutrients found in bone broth include glucosamine, chondroitin and glycine. Glucosamine is known to provide relief for inflammation-related health conditions like arthritis or osteoporosis. Chondroitin can help prevent cartilage breakdown in the body, so also benefits patients with osteoarthritis. And for everyone, the amino acid glycine in bone broth helps aid restful sleep which naturally can help boost your mood.
