Here is a great recipe for bone broth soup that is very high in collagen. Collagen contains high amounts of how hyaluronic acid. Hyaluronic acid has anti-aging qualities especially helping with skin health, skin elasticity, wrinkles and overall joint health. Collagen is also very helpful to prevent stretch marks and to help maintain overall skin health. By cooking these bones from healthy organic grass fed cows over a period of time collagen begins to seep out into the broth to make a real yummy nutrient dense snack!
3 large carrots, diced
1 head celery, diced
1 large yellow onion or 2 large leeks, diced
4-8 large cow bones with marrow (ideally grass fed/finished)
1 tsp. cardamom spice
¼ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
1 tsp. turmeric
truffle oil or truffle sea salt
Put all ingredients in a large soup pot, fill about 4 inches from top with filtered water simmer for 4-5 hours stirring occasionally.
Scoop 2-4 servings into blender. Blend at high speed until smooth. Add 2 drops of truffle oil to each serving and/or sprinkle with truffle sea salt.
Serve and enjoy!
