So I got my first batch of Bone Broth from Wellness Meats, and loved how good it made me feel, but at $25 a pail I decided to try to make my own..
I got a few soup bones from my local farmers’ market and roasted them up in the oven and threw them in the crock pot with onion, celery, carrots, garlic,a bay leaf,and a bunch of parsley. I covered it all with water and added some apple cider vinegar to pull out the good stuff from the bones. cooked it for 20 hours and had some for breakfast. It was pretty yummy for my first batch. I am letting it cook for another 8 hours..mostly because I need my hubby’s non arthritic hands to strain it for me 🙂 I am starting to save my chicken bones in the freezer so I can make some chicken bone broth next. I have to remember to get some chicken feet next time I am at the market.
Check out the benefits of bone broth and recipes here 🙂
Broiled Flounder and baby Spinach cooked with bacon. I am still eating Paleo Auto Immune Protocol.
I fell of the wagon a bit this weekend, had corned beef hash and eggs, (mm eggs)but just jumped right back into it..
Sooo..tried beef liver cooked in bacon and onions..
Wasn’t a fan. I love chicken pate, but didnt quite enjoy the beef.
Bacon was tasty though 😀
Not the best picture, but yummy and super easy to make in a pinch…
Meatballs pineapple and broccoli in coconut milk and bone broth…
Coconut milk, frozen organic strawberries (acts like ice), banana, honey, and spinach..YUM
Oh and by the way the Oster Beehive is awesome for smoothies..It is still really new, so I will see how it holds up, but it blends away everything
from greens to fruit and veggies like it is nothing..Screw you $500.00 vitamix 🙂
Sunday we made baby spinach cooked in bacon ends for lunch. Needless to say my hubby liked it..It had bacon in it 🙂
We needed way more spinach though…I would say 3-4 times more spinach than we had..
Cook up the bacon until it is crunchy….then drain the excess grease..( lesson learned :))
add some garlic..then dump in the spinach and cook a few minutes until it is wilted…
Don’t put a lid on or it will make the spinach taste metallic..Splash some vinegar of your choice in and some salt and pepper (depending on your bacon ends)..mush around..and walla..NOMNOMNOM
Yummy …Kale sauteed in bone broth, apple cider vinegar, and bacon ends with bacon wrapped chicken tenders with a honey mustard apple cider vinegar sauce….
Make sure that if you eat red meat that it is grass fed and low fat…
My pot roast last night was fatty and cheaper meat I was clearing out of the fridge and I am super hurting today..
Lower fat red meats that are raised well have not given me this reaction.
Just a warning. I tend to ramble..and ignore proper punctuation ..mostly due to momentary excitement or sometimes swollen RA fingers 🙂
So I finally finished setting up this website to track my RA health issues and to bitch and moan a little ..Most likely I should have just set up a blog spot or some other random pre made blog, but I am geeky, so any excuse for a new website….
I seriously have a domain addiction problem.
I recently moved across the country from Arizona to North Carolina. Between poor eating, stress, and extra activity my body has been in so much pain. I have been the flare princess.
I am back on track with my food , eating AI Paleo, and found an ND that seems to be on the ball.
This is definitely the worse I have been since I was diagnosed, but I am working on it, and determined to get myself more mobile.
More icky medical details soon!
