One of the key benefits of bone broth is its ability to soothe and heal the gastrointestinal tract. It contains L-glutamine, an amino acid that helps to heal and seal the mucosal lining of the gut, reducing the risk of leaky gut syndrome. Additionally, bone broth is a great source of protein, nutrients, minerals, and electrolytes, which can help to support overall health.
Benefits of a bone broth cleanse can also include improved digestion, reduced inflammation and allergy symptoms, reduced bloating, improved metabolism, strengthened bone, muscle, and joint tissues, more vibrant skin, stronger hair, teeth, and nails, and increased energy levels.
During an Intermittent bone broth cleanse, you will avoid sugar, packaged/processed foods, caffeine, and alcohol, and instead, drink 2-12 cups of clean bone broth per day.
You will be replacing your regular breakfast, (+ lunch if you wish), and snacks with broth, and eat whole foods at chosen meal times.
Whether you choose to do a strict or modified cleanse, incorporating bone broth into your diet has numerous benefits to help you look and feel your best.
The HOW TO:
- Replace your breakfast (and lunch if desired) with as many cups of bone broth as satiates
- Once you're ready for your first meal, ensure it is nutrient rich, whole foods with healthy fats
- Drink broth until you are satiated
- Eat nutrient-rich foods
- Eat healthy fats, such as tallow, organic cold-pressed oils, coconut oil, and grass-fed butter, or ghee, you may add these into your broth if needed
- Spruce up your broths with things such as garlic, ginger, turmeric, cayenne pepper, herbs, lemon, sea salt, Himalayan salt, and pepper
- Drink plenty of spring or filtered water
- For continued digestive support, drink at least one cup of bone broth per day after you've finished your chosen cleanse
- Worry or stress about what your capabilities are in doing this cleanse! If you can only make it part way through the morning without solid food, that's okay! A small intermittent fasting break will still be of benefit
- Remember that doing something in the name of health is better than doing nothing
- With "failed" attempts, rather than accepting feelings of frustrations, try bringing awareness of gratitude for the gift that food is, and move into the perspective that you will always have another opportunity to make a different choice next time. Essentially, try breaking any "all or nothing" attitudes
