We are always looking for new ways to consume bone broth that doesn't require eating soup. Bone broth is great for soup, but we can only eat so much in the summer. I wanted to make braised potatoes and knew bone broth would add lots of flavor and nutrients! We had brats in the freezer and sauerkraut in the fridge, so braised potatoes seemed like a good fit! The potatoes were delicious and the recipe is super simple. This is one of the easiest side dishes you can make and it will likely impress the whole family. It's extremely satiating and pairs well with a variety of main dishes.
The benefits of bone broth are endless and we have noticed many positive changes in our own health since adding to our diet. Here are some of the most notable benefits:
- Bone broth is the best source of collagen which helps form the tissues that line the GI tract. This is important for healthy digestion.
- Collagen is also what keeps our skin looking youthful. Collagen helps form tissues that give our skin that firm and smooth appearance.
- Bone broth increases the good bacteria in our gut which boosts immunity.
- The amino acids found in bone broth improve cognition and help us think clearly.
- Bone broth is full of essential minerals and electrolytes.
