I have an abundance of recipes to cook thanks to this little stack of books:
So I decided to do a series where I cook through all of these cookbooks, before I buy more. So I can save money and eat good food. Julia & Julia style. I call it: CGEP cooks through her books.
(I’m CGEP - Canada Girl Eats Paleo, get it?)
So stay tuned for many more installations of this!
One of the things that really got me interested in the paleo lifestyle is podcasts. I started out with the Everyday Paleo Podcast. After listening to a few episodes, I wasn’t convinced. But by all 28 (minus the first 5 which i can’t find to download) I was sold on the whole ‘paleo’ idea. Then I wanted to expand my horizons a bit, and I came across Practical Paleo and the Balanced Bites Podcast.
On the Balanced Bites Podcast they often discuss the benefits of bone broth and how delicious Diane’s recipe is. I decided I just had to try it! I bought a pack of chicken bones (all I could find) and some chicken breasts with the bone in. De-boned those babies and popped ‘em into my slow cooker for 23 hours!
Yummy Smashed Garlic
23 hours later…
We have broth!
It is good plain or made into soup. I also froze half in a style I had seen on pinterest:
Freeze in a ziploc freezer baggie on top of a cutting board. After it has frozen, remove cutting board and stack in the freezer for easy storage! I love this idea and it totally worked.
This broth was a smashing hit with me and the boyfriend! I’m happy to know it’s full of good things for us too.
