Restart

Today, I am starting again. For my health and happiness and that of my family. We won’t talk about how much I failed over the last week and a half.

So, for breakfast this morning I had 2 eggs, a sweet potato, and some sautéed onions. And coffee. I know I need to scale back on the caffeine intake, but not yet. 

There is a chicken in the oven. Once it is done, I will pull the meat off the bone and freeze it in portions (eating leftover animal protein is a no-no in the low histamine world). I will then put the carcass and maybe some veggies in the crockpot, cover it with water, and cook on low for 24 hours. 

Once the 24 hours is up, I will strain out/scoop out the fat/bones/veggies. What is left will be “bone broth”. I will freeze it in 4 oz portions. Every day or two, I will thaw a portion, mix it with 4 oz water, heat the mixture in the microwave, and drink it. (I personally cannot drink bone broth straight. It is too strong for my palate right now.)

The gelatin in bone broth is good for digestion. Bone broth is also good for the immune system (much like chicken soup). It is also high in protein and minerals. 

My family may not drink the bone broth, but they sure are happy that I am eating meat!
