THE BREAKFAST OF CHAMPIONS IS BONE BROTH!
My standard recommendation for most patients who are consuming bone broth for health is to drink 2 coffee mug size portions a day. A good broth acts as a magnificent base to dishes beyond soups or stews. Cooking with broth is one of the easiest ways to get your daily dose and one of the most popular patient recommended recipes has become our Bone Broth Oatmeal. It's a perfect savory breakfast food packed with protein and vitamins to set the day right.
An ideal breakfast has the right amount of fats and proteins. A protein rich breakfast can optimize your brain's ability to send messages to the rest of your body, helping you wake up. If you combine protein with carbohydrates, your body will gradually digest your breakfast, staving off hunger and keeping you energized until lunch. A nutrient dense breakfast helps fuel you throughout the day as opposed to a sugar dense breakfast, which will crash you out.
There are a few variations of this bone broth oatmeal recipe and you can always spice it up with cinnamon, turmeric, chia seeds, or anything your spicy little heart desires. However, the combo of protein (broth and milk of your choice), carbohydrates (oatmeal), and fat (ghee) is a savory delicious way to set your blood sugar for the day, eat your broth, and celebrate nourishment all at the same time!
