🌿A couple of weeks ago I was pleasantly surprised to be able to tolerate my homemade meat (chicken) broth. Meat broth isn’t cooked as long as bone broth, and is still lower histamine. You’ll still get all the veggies with it, so it’s packed with valuable vitamins, minerals, and nutrients galore. Anddddd, I used a herb that has antiparasitic properties! It’s a great substitute for bone broth, which I really miss. It has a full-bodied, hearty flavor to it that adds so much depth to soups. Since it’s soup season, this is pretty much a necessity 🙂 Drink it as is (+ tiny squeeze of lime juice) for a warning fall beverage.
🍗As a plus, meat broth provides building blocks for the rapidly growing cells of the gut lining. These cells have a soothing effect on any inflamed problem areas in the lining. In the past, it slowly but steadily helped heal my leaky gut, so I’m a fan for life and excited to bring this back.
🥣I’m making a yummy Tuscan soup with it today, and I’m excited to share it with you soon!

**GF/DF/LOW-HISTAMINE (I followed mastcell360 low histamine foods list very strictly initially, then added some foods from the SIGHI list as I began to tolerate more foods, all under the care of a dietitian. A low histamine diet is restrictive and not meant to be followed long-term, as nutrient deficiencies may develop.)**
