Bone broth is one of the most nourishing foods for postpartum mothers.
The collagen in the bone broth is healing and nutritive for a mother's recuperation. It is incredibly easy to make at home which is great because drinking multiple cups a day is best.
Here is a basic recipe for bone broth. Feel free to add vegetables and herbs as you see fit.
A large stockpot
Bones from chicken, cow or lamb
Scrapings from the ends of vegetables. Onions, carrots and celery are great additions.
Place bones and vegetables in to the stock pot. Fill the pan with enough water to cover the bones. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Let cook for 10-18 hours. Strain and use the broth as needed.
