This Transformation Tuesdays post is a sure-win for easy and nutritious cooking.
For me, chicken stock is one of the most versatile and nutritious foods I make. It can be substituted for water in many recipes, adding flavor and nutrition. Having chicken stock handy makes for quick-and-easy soups (leftover spaghetti meat sauce + chicken stock = yummy Italian soup). It also makes your home smell WONDERFUL (if I wasn’t so full from the healthy foods we eat, I’m sure I’d feel hungry all the time just from the smell!). Did I mention that it costs almost nothing to make? Water + vinegar + leftovers + vegetables + energy cost for 6-24 hours. Helping of Hope: you can up the ante on your nutrition for almost free overnight!
According to Nourishing Traditions by Dr. Sally Fallon, Chicken Stock contains:
- More easily-absorbed (electrolyte) forms of minerals, particularly calcium, magnesium, and potassium.
- Hydrophyllic colloids.
- Cartilage components.
Based on these key nutritive components, chicken stock is supposed to help alleviate the following conditions:
- Anemia and other blood diseases
- Bone Diseases
- Chron’s Disease
- Common Cold
- Connective Tissue problems
- Digestive defficiencies
- Infectious Diseases
- Influenza (the Flu)
- Muscular Dystrophy
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
