We can’t stop talking about the benefits of bone broth.
Why? Well, many reasons, one being that it contains collagen and gelatin, both of which are essential in the fight for optimal gut health. And a healthy gut, my friends, lays the foundation for your body’s overall health and wellness. Long story short, organic grass-fed bone broth keeps us feeling and looking great, and it gets serious bonus points for the fact that we can use it to cook delicious dishes.
What’s more, this tremendously versatile and flavourful whole food is the most bioavailable way to supplement our collagen levels, which means it gets right to work very quickly.
So if you’ve joined us at the Clean Living Company before, an article on our love for bone broth won’t surprise you. What may surprise you though, is just how many unexpected ways there are to camouflage this pre-prepared power-mix in your family meals! We know that while people of all ages benefit from bone broth collagen (yes, even kiddos need broth in their diets!), not everyone wants to drink it neat. We get that.
As parents with busy schedules and picky mouths to feed, we understand that it can be tricky to find healthy solutions the whole family will appreciate. That’s why today we’re serving up 5 modern family-approved takes on this digestive gem.
1. Veggie Risotto
Risotto is a great option for the whole family because not only is it super easy to make, but you can add anything to it and accommodate all types of eaters! An oh-so-easy, healthy option that makes for lunch or dinner with flair.
Use any traditional risotto recipe with just one twist: Cook your rice in Beef or Chicken Cone Broth instead of water. Sauté your veggies of choice and add Italian herbs for seasoning. Mix it all and serve!
Easy, versatile, delicious.
2. The Astonishing Smoothie
Thought you’d explored every juicy combo there is? Think again. This classic vitamin-packed green smoothie is taken to another level of goodness when you blend half a pouch of Beef or Chicken Bone Broth with 1 cup of spinach, 1 cup of kale, 2 apples and ginger to taste. Easy enough right?
The flavour of bone broth will be undetectable, but your healthy glow and confidence won’t!
3. Healthy Zoodle Spaghetti
Because who doesn't love spaghetti?!
This healthy take on a timeless classic will leave your kiddos begging for seconds. In just a few simple steps you'll have a delicious tomato sauce with Chicken or Beef Bone Broth as your base. Keep it healthy by subbing regular pasta out for zoodles!
Check out the full recipe from Food Renegade.
4. Bone Broth Veggie Sticks
This healthy go-to couldn't be easier to prepare.
Say goodbye to unhealthy snacks like chips and processed foods. With this simple trick, you won't need to stress about making sure the kiddos are eating well at school. Simply boil your veggies in your Bone Broth (carrots, broccoli, whatever you like!), serve with hummus or peanut butter, and there you have it!
You can even drink the leftover broth for yourself, or use it in another recipe, it's a win-win.
5. Premium Pancakes
This quintessential Saturday-morning favourite has never been better when you combine Chicken Bone Broth with your preferred style of batter (the linked recipe uses gluten-free oats.) Ladle it into the pan and fry until golden. Lastly, finish it off with the topping of your choice. Just remember, Chicken Broth is key here. Keep the beef bone broth for dishes with heavier flavour profiles, it will overpower this dish!

Tips for Cooking With Bone Broth
There are no unwritten rules here. If you’re feeling creative, use our bone broth in place of the liquid for just about any meal (don't even get me started on the creamy mashed potatoes).
But, if you’re not quite ready for a full-on fortified food adventure just yet, that’s okay. There’s nothing wrong with keeping it simple - use it as a base for soups, stews and gravies as a more nutritive stock swap. Or you could have some fun by popping it into a pasta or pizza sauce. We’re sure you won’t hear any objections to that!
Whichever way you prefer to use our bone broth, consistently adding it into your family’s diets will be a game-changer for their gut, brain, joint & bone health as well as for their overall immunity.

Keeping Up the Health Kick
The trick to sustaining these nutritional benefits over time is to use this ingredient in a variety of dishes. Change it up and spend some time experimenting to see which dishes are a hit!
As you can see from the recipes, pre-prepared bone broth opens you up to a broader variety of meal options. Luckily, the Clean Living Company's batch-made broths are the perfect solution to those who don't have time to cook their own broth. But there’s more to it. You’re also guaranteed to get the benefits you’re looking for; something which may not come from a home-made equivalent. This is because making your own broth is tough to get right.
Bone broth’s full benefits are reaped only when the finest quality bones are used and simmered in water for over 24 hours. That’s how much time it takes to draw all the nutrients, collagen and gelatin out, so anything less means you can miss out of key aspects of the broth. Even worse, you may even risk consuming hormones, heavy metals and other toxins - yikes!
