Temperatures have dropped, snow fall feels imminent, and comfort food is appearing on menus and kitchen tables in full force. Winter is here.
Don’t let that chill get the best of you this year. Fortify yourself with something so nourishing, it will inspire you to live well all year long. It’s an age-old recipe that’s as soothing as it is simple, and it’s going to get you through these dicey months. It’s Pacific Foods Bone Broth.
Since it comes in a variety of flavors, there are an array of options that will keep you satiated throughout the season. Of course, there's the original Organic Chicken Bone Broth, but there's also sipping varieties that include seasonings like turmeric, ginger, and even chamomile. Or, go beyond chicken in your recipes with Organic Turkey or Organic Beef Bone Broth.
Drink it on its own for a warming and energizing pick-me-up that can be enjoyed on-the-go any time, from chilling mornings to quiet moments following a workout. Just like that, you’ve got a new daily ritual that will keep you warm and toasty all winter. Or you can use bone broth when you’re cooking grains for a clean and easy way to add extra flavor. If you're super chilly and short on time, use Pacific Foods’ chicken bone broth instead of making classic chicken soup from scratch.
In fact, you can swap in any flavored bone broth in pretty much any soup. Beef bone broth would taste great in this spicy carrot ginger soup with harissa, for one, making for a delicious dish that's also perfect for livening up a winter lunch routine. Or try chicken bone broth in a lentil soup, like this one with lemon zest, garlic and parsley, for an elegant take on a soup that could just as easily soothe your soul as it could delight a dinner party.
Unlike so many of the other comfort foods we look to this time of year to make us feel better, the deep, savory flavor of bone broth doesn’t come with added fat or unhealthy ingredients that will weigh you down and deplete your energy. Chicken, turkey, or beef bones are simply simmered in water with herbs, vegetables, and vinegar, building flavor over hours in the pot, just like it’s been done for centuries. The method is as pure as the ingredients. Whether you’re sipping a single serving on the way to work in the morning, or using the broth as a foundation for a hearty soup, you can rest easy knowing you’re fueling yourself with something good. Just the way it should be.
