Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but that doesn’t always mean I’m ready to eat something when I first wake up. Bone broth is a great way to start the day because it is packed with minerals and anti-inflammatory properties that nourish your body inside and out. On days when food isn’t appealing in the mornings I will sip on bone broth. It’s enough to settle my stomach until I’m mentally prepared to eat actual food. .
Here are some of my go to recipes for a quick burst of nutrients in the morning.
Lemon Ginger Chicken Broth
This is a personal favorite of mine. Lemon and ginger brighten the velvety broth.
Bring 3 cups of broth to a simmer and stir in 3 tablespoons of fresh grated ginger and cover for 3 minutes on low heat. Remove from heat and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Serve in individual bowls or mugs with a large lemon slice.
Cinnamon Spice Beef Broth
I love the warming properties of cinnamon fused with the richness of beef broth, especially on cold mornings.
Bring 3 cups of beef broth to a simmer and stir in 2 tablespoons of cinnamon and 3 cloves or 1/2 teaspoon of ground clove and allow to simmer for on low heat until fragrant, about 8 minutes. Serve in individual mugs with a cinnamon stick and a dash of chili flakes.
Golden Turmeric Broth
Whenever I start to feel a little tickle in my nose or throat, I load up on turmeric for its amazing anti inflammatory and antimicrobial properties. It goes well with any broth you have available.
Bring 3 cups of broth to a simmer and stir in 3 tablespoons of fresh grated turmeric or 2 tablespoons of ground turmeric, with 1 tablespoon of cumin. Cover and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Serve in individual mugs with minced fresh cilantro.
