Bone Broth for Cold & Flu Season
Whenever someone is sick, we always repeat the same advice: get plenty of rest, drink lots of water, and sip on soup. In fact, chicken soup can be a better remedy than many over the counter medicines in reducing the symptoms of the common cold. If soup is so good for us, how come we don’t have it all the time?
What is Bone Broth?
Although scientists are still trying to pinpoint exactly what makes chicken soup so great at reducing the duration of colds, everyone seems to be in agreeance that drinking bone broth is healthy. Bone broth is made from the slow simmering of bones and vegetables to create a flavourful, and collagen-rich drink that also contains minerals.

Homemade Bone Broth
We make our own bone broth using lots of organic and grass fed bones that are simmered over the course of 24 hours along with vegetables and spices. All of our broths are made from scratch, without any preservatives,sugars or additives. We use a large amount of bones for each batch, resulting in a very concentrated bone broth can be consumed as is, or watered down.
You can also make your own bone broth at home. Check out our recipe here.
Staying Healthy this Flu Season
Getting your flu shot, taking time to relax, and washing your hands are all no-brainer ways to avoid getting sick this fall. But if you’re a planner, or trying to get more into #selfcare, then stock your freezer with bone broths! Sipping on bone broth can be a relaxing evening “snack” for some, while others enjoy it in the mornings as a light breakfast.
Bone broth can be kept frozen for up to a year and is easily re-heated either in the microwave or in a pot on the stove. It also makes a wonderful base for soups and sauces. Our broths have much more flavour than canned stock, or bouillon. Try it for yourself and see!
