Below are just a couple of examples of the recipes that can be found in my new book, Lyme Natural.
Amina’s Bone Broth Recipe
Why is Bone Broth is so good??
Once the meat bones have simmered, all the nutrients and minerals such as Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium & Gelatin are drawn out of the bones and marrow into the stock. Together with the alkalizing minerals from the veggies, it is wonderful for digestion, feeding our good bacteria and your immune system. This broth is a highly nourishing recipe to use as a drink or a stock to add flavours and nutrients to other foods such as soups, rice or gluten free pasta. It can also be used as an immune boosting drink if one is not feeling hungry.
Method & Ingredients:
Cover meat bones (lamb, beef or chicken) with water and boil for 15 mins in a saucepan. Place bones with boiled water into a slow cooker.
Add 1 onion (peeled and cut in half), 4 celery sticks, 3 carrots & shitake mushrooms. Throw in chunks of fresh ginger, garlic & turmeric.
Can add 1 tbsp molasses for flavour, 2 tbs apple cider vinegar (to further draw minerals from bones), Himalayan salt, pepper & bay leaves.
Spices such as cinnamon, anise, clove and cardamom may be added if preferred.
Cook in a slow cooker for 12-24 hours, Remove bones, strain.
Add organic miso paste after cooking for extra nutrition
Can also add fresh garlic for the raw medicinal content of garlic, ‘allicin’.
Consume as a soup, stock, add rice noodles or just strain and drink.
Turmeric latte recipe: (Indian golden milk)
This delicious drink is very healing, dairy free, high protein, soothing, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant.
1. Mix 1 tsp of organic turmeric powder with a dash of hot water into a paste in your favourite mug.
2. Heat up one mug of organic almond milk (can use coconut milk but I prefer almond), just warm enough to drink.
3. Add 1 heaped tsp of coconut oil to the warm almond milk and stir.
4. Now pour milk and oil into your mug with the turmeric paste. Stir. Add honey (preferably organic or manuka).
5. Can sprinkle some cinnamon on top. (Black pepper can help enhance the absorption of turmeric). Enjoy
