Cup of golden bone broth

Golden Bone Broth

I absolutely love a “two-fer”—and I don’t just mean a BOGO sale at the shoe store. I also love it when I can combine the power of two superfoods in a single recipe.

That’s why I’m excited about sharing one of my favorite recipes with you today—Golden Bone Broth, which gives you the benefits of bone broth (more on that here, if you’re new to it) and the spice turmeric.  Golden Bone Broth is warm and satisfying, and a mug of it is pure bliss for your body and soul after a stressful day. What’s more, it’s serious medicine that can help you stay healthy for life.

Now, I know most of you are familiar with bone broth, and you’re already drinking it (and adding it to pot roastschili, and even cocktails) to get all of its benefits—benefits that include healing your gut, melting off belly fat, beautifying your skin and hair, and protecting your joints.

But did you know that adding turmeric to that broth can make it even better for you? Here’s the story.

The amazing benefits of turmeric

Turmeric contains curcumin, a beautiful yellow substance that’s one of nature’s most potent natural healers. Traditional cultures around the world revere curcumin for its healing properties, and Western scientists are now giving it the attention it deserves. Here are just some of the secrets they’re uncovering about curcumin’s anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and infection-fighting powers:

That’s an awesome list of benefits—and one of the most remarkable things about curcumin is that it gives you all this disease-fighting power without any of the severe side effects that drugs can have. That means that it’s all upside, and no downside!

So seriously… if you aren’t adding turmeric and its gift of healing curcumin to your diet, it’s time to start. And here’s one of the easiest ways in the world to do it.

And note that your body’s ability to absorb and utilize turmeric’s active compounds is vastly improved when it’s paired with black pepper and/or fat.

Bone broth + turmeric = magic!

There are lots of wonderful ways to use turmeric—for instance, in smoothies, scrambled eggs, soups, or the turmeric tea recipe I have here. But nothing beats combining it with bone broth (and a little coconut milk to make it smooth and creamy). Here’s the recipe… easy, delicious, and loaded with healing power.
