Nourishing Broth: An Old-Fashioned Remedy for the Modern World by Sally Fallon Morell and Kaayla T. Daniel, Ph.D., C.C.N.
Bone broth might be the missing link in nutritional health for many. The authors, Sally Fallon Morell and Kaayla T. Daniel, provide recipes as well as the science that supports the healing effects of nourishing broths. Grandmother may have told you that chicken soup, the traditional kind, can cure what ails you, but now the science shows that such broths contribute to health in many ways. Nourishing Broth contains complete instructions for making homemade broth. It may well be the missing ingredient in the diet of most people today.
Fallon Morell and Daniel show that broth helps ameliorate colds and the flu and can prevent such illnesses as arthritis. Quick recovery from illness and surgery, decrease in pain and inflammation, increase in energy from better digestion, amelioration of allergies, and healing of autoimmune and eating disorders are just some of the health benefits of bone broths cooked the traditional way. Nourishing Broth not only takes a reader through the history and folklore of broth, it provides the latest research and a variety of stock-based recipes for every meal of the day.
