Chicken stock and broth is very gentle on the stomach and has been known for centuries to aid digestion. Eating soup made with good quality broth provides healing benefits and many detox plans incorporate them into their protocol. It is one of the mainstays in my kitchen. Many of the recipes in our book, Eating Pure in a Processed Foods World®, include stock and broth and I make it regularly. It’s wonderful to pull out of the refrigerator to make a variety of hearty soups or main dishes.
To make the best quality stock and broth, it’s important to use as pure ingredients as possible. This includes the water you use to make the broth. If you live in town, you might want to consider buying a water filter to remove the fluoride and chlorine that may be in your water.
