My main reason for having bone broth everyday is the gelatin helps your system digest more effectively which evidently I need help with. Bone broth is a gut healing super food!
Here's my husband Brad's recipe:
Note: There are many recipes and a lot of them add in veggies. We've kept it simple here to keep in line with the low-fodmap diet.
- bag of bones from grass-fed beef, lamb or organic pastured poultry
- a splash of apple cider vinegar to help leach minerals from the bones
- filtered water to cover
- Add all ingredients to your slow cooker.
- Cook on low for 12-24 hours.
- Skim the fat off the top before drinking.
- Add salt to taste.
- Remaining broth can be poured off and refrigerated. Lift off hardened fat before heating and drinking.
- If freezing, cool to room temperature in a glass, bpa-free container. Put in freezer and leave top off until frozen to avoid cracking jar. Replace lid.
You can drink the stock any time and you can use it as a base for soups and add it to recipes calling for water or broth.
OK, so what can I eat on a 30-day FODMAP free journey? Easier to say what I can't eat. Depending on whose list you are looking at some things may vary. I've decided to go with Chris Kresser's list:
FODMAP rich foods to avoid:
· Brussels Sprouts
· Dandelion Greens
· Green Bell Peppers
· Green Onions
Herbs & Spices
Nuts & Seeds
Why am I doing this? My stomach has been hurting with almost everything I eat. Even a strict Paleo diet wasn't helping. So, I'm trying to cut out more foods that may be exacerbating my problems. I just need to clean out a little and see what happens.
