Clean Eating Recipe: Cooking with Bone Broth

bone broth eating disorder recovery

“Indeed, stock is everything in cooking. Without it, nothing can be done.” -Auguste Escoffier

There is so much truth to this quote! I recently started incorporating bone broth into my diet every day. When they say “Let food be thy medicine”, this is definitely one of the foods they are talking about! The healing benefits are seemingly endless, especially to the individual recovering from an eating disorder such as anorexia, bulimia, binge-eating disorder, or bulimarexia. Bone broth provides support to the adrenals, teeth, bones, and helps in recovery from leaky gut. As an added benefit, it makes everything taste mouth-watering and delicious! You don’t have to be a chef to make bone broth, it is really easy to make!

Bone Broth Recipe

Ingredients:

1 gallon of filtered water
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar (per gallon of water)
10 cloves of garlic
1/4 cup coarse Himalayan sea salt
pepper
your favorite herbs and spices
8-10 grass-fed beef bones with marrow
8-10 carrots
1-2 onions
4-6 celery stalks

1. Bake bones for 1 hour at 350°.
1. Pour 1 gallon of filtered water into crock pot
2. Add in all ingredients.

Place all ingredients in crockpot and cook on low  for 24  – 72 hours. Strain and pour into glass jars that can be frozen. Keeps in fridge for 5+ days, so put some there and freeze the rest.

To create a particularly great tasting stock and a scrumptious beef dish, add an inexpensive grass fed beef cut and let it cook for 5 or 6 hours and then remove and enjoy, or use for soups, stews, barbeque, etc.  You can do the same thing with chicken breasts but you have to be more careful with the broth afterwards and keep it frozen until you use it. This is a great way to get CLA into your chicken dishes and it really tastes like pulled pork when you take it out.

Nutritional Information for 1 Cup: 209 calories, 10 g fat, 22 g protein, 6 g carbs, 2 g fiber.

So, how do I incorporate bone broth into my diet? Look at all of these amazing dishes I’ve enjoyed this past week!

cooking with bone broth

1. Fish with Spinach
2. Beef with Green Beans and Mushrooms
3. Chicken with Green Beans
4. Bison Burger with Mushroom and Gouda

All these dishes were simple yet delicious! I lightly brown the meat/fish/mushrooms in coconut oil and season with organic garlic salt, organic garlic pepper, and bourbon smoked paprika; if I am prepping meat for a salad, I sometimes add fresh italian herbs. Next, I add in some bone broth and simmer. Later I add my veggies,  I love spinach with the fish, and green beans with the chicken and mushroom soup. It adds incredible flavor as well as lots of really good CLA.  Before serving, I season it with a bit of Himalayan Sea Salt.
If you are unable to make your own bone broth, there is an alternative! You can have delicious bone broth shipped right to your home from Chef Lance Roll! Be sure to check out our podcast interview with Lance!

Clean Eating Recipe: Baby Back Pork Ribs

clean eating baby back ribs

Okay! My family voted my baby back spareribs the most delicious they have ever tasted. No kidding! If you haven’t had this sort of success there are a few things you might want to try.

First, did you know that there is a membrane on the back of your baby back pork ribs? There is! You have to remove it if you want really juicy tender ribs! To remove the membrane, separate it at the short end and then grab it with a paper towel. It usually pulls right off!

eating disorder recovery recipes

The other thing you have to do it marinate the ribs for at least three hours. You can also use this as a mopping sauce as well if you are doing your reds on a grill! The marinade is simple:

Baby Back Port Ribs Marinade

1/2 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 cup coconut palm sugar (the benefits of coconut palm sugar)
1/2 cup Worcester sauce
1 tsp garlic pepper
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp bourbon smoked paprika
1 tsp mustard
1 tsp chili powder

After they have marinated for 3 to 4 hours you can bake them covered loosely with aluminum foil for about an hour at 350 degrees. Either make your own barbecue sauce or use your favorite barbecue sauce. Wrap them in heavy duty aluminum foil two hours before dinner. Cook them in the oven over very low heat or place them in a smoker on the grill on low heat. Remove them from the aluminum foil. Baste with your favorite barbecue sauce until they just turn dark; or stick them under the broiler for half an hour.

Enjoy the most mouthwatering, tender ribs you have ever tasted!

Premature Aging

botox

This week, ABC News ran a story about the increasing use of botox in individuals in their teens and 20s to fight premature aging. Out of the 6.1 million botox injections administered in 2012, almost 100,000 were given to patients in their 20s; that’s a 10% increase from 2011. In 2010, teenages received almost 12,000 botox injections; a 2% increase from 2008. Why is our population experiencing this premature aging?

Premature aging is caused by elevated levels of oxidative stress within the body. Dr. Weil defines oxidative stress as “the total burden placed on organisms by the constant production of free radicals in the normal course of metabolism plus whatever other pressures the environment brings to bear”.

There are a number of lifestyle problems that can lead to excessive oxidative stress, such as pathogens, excessive exercise, insufficient sleep, cigarette abuse, alcohol abuse, exposure to chemicals and toxins, heavy metals, natural and artificial radiation, and excessive stress.

There are a few simple things that we can do to prevent premature aging:

  • Get tested and treated for any pathogens (parasites, bacterial infections, fungal infections, viral infections). Many individuals with these pathogens are asymptomatic, or symptoms may be seemingly unrelated to a pathogen.
  • Avoid excessive exercise. If you feel you are addicted to exercise, seek professional help.
  • Get a good night’s sleep. The ideal time to sleep is from 10 pm to 6 am. 2 hours of sleep before midnight are worth 4 hours of sleep after midnight, when it comes to the body healing and recovering.
  • Avoid exposure to chemicals and toxins in your food and water. On a budget? Check out Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen! Install a water filter in your home that will remove toxins and chemicals. Avoid eating these genetically modified foods.
  • Minimize external sources of stress. Avoid people that are “energy robbers”, meditate, journal, learn breathing exercises, create a gratitude list. If you’re stress levels are too much to handle on your own, work with a professional that can teach you techniques to manage stress.
  • In addition to making lifestyle changes, take a good quality anti-oxidant supplement.
