Bone Broth: Both Chicken and Beef Benefits: Excellent source of collagen and trace minerals.
We eat meat for protein and vegetables for micronutrients and fiber. Bone broth is vital for the healing amino acids and mineral content. Not only is bone broth a rich source of amino acids, but it’s particularly high in different aminos than meat, primarily glycine and proline. Both of these amino acids account for about half the amino-acid composition of collagen.
As we age collagen breaks down, which leads to decreased stability, weaker and less-elastic joints, thinner cartilage and the less-resilient skin often seen on the elderly. Bone broth can be drank alone or you can google hundreds of soup recipes that call for broth. Enjoy!
Fermented Food: Sauerkraut Benefits: Excellent source of prebiotics, improves digestion by restoring healthy bacteria in your gut. It lasts for months in the 'fridge. Heal your gut with this food.
Naturally fermented cabbage is made from finely shredded cabbage and salt. You can add other vegetables to change it up a bit: carrots, ginger, celery, onion, caraway seeds or daikon radish ...are just a few. Experiment!
The salt preserves the cabbage for a few days while the probiotic bacteria begin to grow.
These probiotic bacteria are highly beneficial to human digestion and are the mechanism that turns cabbage into a super nutritious food.
Making your own sauerkraut from scratch is really easy and can be done in less than 30 minutes.
Don't be fooled and think that the sauerkraut in a can or jar at your supermarket is the same. It's not. It is made with vinegar, instead of the traditional method of lactofermentation, using salt - no therapeutic value.
Fortunately living in Colorado, we have a few local ferments that create the traditional method of lactofermentation. I love to buy them, as well. Check them out if you're not ready to make your own.
Also, check your local health food store, they may have a local quality choices for fermented foods.
Steel Cut Oats (Gluten and dairy fee) Benefits: Excellent source of fiber, minerals.
Steel-cut oats contain more fiber than rolled oats or instant varieties.
This breakfast is really a no-brainer. It just requires some planning.
It's one of my favorites, especially in the winter when it's so cold out!
Good health begins with taking responsibility for our own body.
