I like to focus on staying healthy while the world is telling us to stay home and stay safe.
Did you know bone broth is good for your gut and immune system? It’s also good for your joints and skin!
I make a large batch and then freeze it into smaller portions for future recipes. I have been making this broth SIBO-friendly since I am working on some digestive issues. If you have any issues such as SIBO (Small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), HPylori, or other chronic digestive issues, you want to avoid foods that are considered FODMAPs (fermentable oligosaccharides, di-saccharides, mono-saccharides, and polyols). These foods feed the bacteria in your gut, creating inflammation in your body. So, I had to exclude onions and garlic in this recipe.
It’s really easy to make bone broth in an InstantPot. It just takes four hours!
1 1/2-2 pds grass-fed beef bones
4 large carrots chopped
3 celery sticks chopped
1/4 cup distilled vinegar
1 Rosemary sprig (optional)
1 oregano sprig (optional)
Dump everything into the InstantPot and fill it to the fill line with filtered water. Press the Manual button and set the timer for four hours. Flip vent valve to “Seal”.
Go pour yourself a glass of wine and watch a good movie!
Once the timer goes off - Let the InstantPot release pressure naturally (about 20 minutes). Flip the vent valve to release any pressure still present. Take the pot out of the InstantPot with oven mitts or a towel, and let the broth cool to almost room temperature. Strain the broth in a large colander and divide it into mason jars or freezer bags. You can freeze it for up to a year or store in the fridge for several days.
*Kitchen hack - once the broth is cooled to room temperature, you can pour the broth into ice trays to make smaller portions. This is actually better than having a huge block of broth in your freezer!
Creating a healthy menu for your family can be easy, once you start creating good eating habits. Transforming your family's diet is a process, not an overnight success. So be kind to yourself and learn something new one step at a time!
