This recipe combines some of the most healing foods in all the land. Garlic, ginger, bone broth, ghee, turmeric, lemon, sea salt & pepper. There are SO many articles that speak to why all these foods are SO medicinal so I won’t bore you or make you scroll for 2 days before you get to the recipe.
Just know that nourishing the body with all these healing foods can be ideal especially when you aren’t feeling your best or your worst. We make these during the cold & flu season or anytime one of us feels like something may be coming on.
This can also be eaten/drank for a meal! The protein and fat content are perfect to create a satiating and nourishing liquid meal.
Bone broth is one of the most nutrient-dense and nourishing foods we can consume. It is loaded with all the nutrients we need to live and function at our best.

I'll also share this great blog post, by Weston A. Price Foundation, with three recipes that you can begin your bone broth making journey on!
There is also great insight to why this liquid is SO healing for our minds, body and soul.
Let’s do this:
Prep time: 5-20 minutes
Serves: 2 – 8 ounce servings
Something good to know is that many people are taking turmeric is that it is known as an anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory compound which AMAZINGLY beneficial for our health. It has also been shown to have neuroprotective effect
Recent research is also showing that despite that the molecule responsible for the majority of it's health benefits, curcumin, is actually not easily absorbable by the body, BUT it is shown that it's magic is it's impact on our guts and microbiome by regulating bacterial populations in the gut!
"Indeed, a new working hypothesis that could explain the neuroprotective role of curcumin despite its limited availability is that curcumin acts indirectly on the central nervous system by influencing the “microbiota–gut–brain axis”, a complex bidirectional system in which the microbiome and its composition represent a factor which preserves and determines brain “health”. Interestingly, curcumin and its metabolites might provide benefit by restoring dysbiosis of gut microbiome. Conversely, curcumin is subject to bacterial enzymatic modifications, forming pharmacologically more active metabolites than curcumin. These mutual interactions allow to keep proper individual physiologic functions and play a key role in neuroprotection."
So just because it's not absorbed, does not mean it doesn't serve us!
It's actually because it's not absorbed that it can do it's magic in our guts!
