I am crazy about drinking bone broth. I started drinking broth when I was recovering from cancer treatments to fortify my bones and reduce inflammation. I really ramped up my bone broth drinking when I started the 5:2 Diet. It’s called the 5:2 Diet because five days of the week are regular eating days (1600-2200 calories per day), while the remaining two days are restricted to 500-600 calories. Drinking broth each day and using it as a meal substitute on my fasting days really worked for me. The age-old tradition of having a hot pot of bone broth always cooking on the hearth sounds excellent but wasn’t realistic or convenient.
I started supplementing my homemade stock with Taking Stock Foods Organic Chicken Bone Broth. Taking Stock Foods is a woman-owned company based in St. Paul. I interviewed one of the founders, Molly Clark, on the @Makersofmn podcast I host. Molly brought me a sample. I cooked with it first but then I started drinking it because it tasted so good and was conveniently packaged.I was tired of scooping and measuring the gross powdered broths.
