Taking cold-pressed black seed oil to boost your immunity is incredible. However, another superfood I want to shed light on is none other than bone broth!
While speaking at a retreat in Dallas last month, one talking point I had was regarding tips for detoxing. We’ll, in case you looked at bone broth as a bowl of grease, it’s in fact an incredible natural detox! It heals your gut, reduces inflammation, boosts your immunity, and I can go on. You can find a myriad of health benefits it contains in my book, Sunnah Superfoods.
Bone broth is what I consider a superfood, and one that many overlook. I understand throwing in Maggi cubes or ready carton vegetable stock into your meals gives it the flavor you are looking for, within the limited time you have to cook. Nonetheless, I assure you, the benefits outweigh the few extra minutes you might have to spend making it. I’ve had clients complain about digestion issues, joint pain, or excessive allergies; bone broth was almost always a recommendation on their session notes. There is nothing like the feedback I receive from them after implementing this daily habit.
During this very past week, I’ve had 2 clients ask me for the recipe after I shared a list of remedies and steps they should take to build their immunity. I took detailed pictures and sent it their way, reminding them that it’s extremely beneficial for them, and their entire family!
Did I mention, it tastes amazing on its own! If the flavor is too pungent for you, you can use the broth as a base to make a chicken veggie soup, or any other favorite you may have.
What are we waiting for, let’s get to this incredible recipe (it's my mom's btw, my first teacher)!
Mom’s Nutrient Sky-Rocketing Bone Broth
10 cups boiling water
2 pounds baby lamb or organic pasture-raised chicken (with bones)
1 tablespoon organic apple cider vinegar (RAW with the Mother)*
1 tablespoon turmeric, ground

*To ensure you are getting maximum benefit from your ACV, make sure it saws raw and with the mother. Bragg's Raw Unfiltered ACV is one of my favorite. You can grab it here.
*To make stock you can just cook it for 40 minutes. To make broth with collagen and other benefits cook for a total of 3 hours.
You can find the recipe, as well as many other recipes I make using bone broth (like my Broccoli Cheddar Soup) in my books:
