Anti-cellulite Recipe: Bone Broth

broth soup

There are two words that should never be uttered in the same sentence: cellulite and bikini. The two words should always stay diametrically opposed. And with Summer nearing closer it’s time to begin the annual battle to get the cellulite off before the bikini goes on. And guess what you’re going to fight it with – bones and vinegar!

Let’s face facts: cellulite is ugly – and stubborn. Mother nature, nor your DNA intended you to have it. The reason you have cellulite is because you’ve been poisoning your body with toxins and your body’s natural detoxification mechanisms have been overwhelmed by the gradual intake of more and more toxins at a faster rate than your body can handle. So unless you live like a Nun, chances are you have a bit of dimply skin to deal to.

Now it is true that anyone can get cellulite, but because hormonal changes increase the likelihood of it, women tend to be more prone to cellulite than men (a bit of a raw deal if you ask me). And while anti-cellulite creams may improve the appearance by smoothing and firming the skin but it will never solve the problem. The only way to eliminate cellulite is to address the toxins that cause it in the first place. Your solution (along with some reasonably moderate exercise) is this – bone broth.

If you aren’t making your own bone broth (stock) already you should start. Not only are the health benefits unbelievable, it’s also very easy. Bone broth is a powerful detoxifying as well as a deeply nourishing food. Broths made from bones have been used for its incredible healing properties for centuries. Those healing properties are one of the reasons why chicken soup is one of the best cough & cold remedies you’ll ever find. It helps to dislodge toxins from your lymph while immersing your body with important minerals. Real bone broth contains: Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Potassium Sulfate, Collagen, Chondroitin, Glycine and more. Boxed and canned broths are commercially available, and you can even buy organic and free-range meat broths, but they are often highly processed – and expensive!

To Make Bone Broth:
Simply throw the bones in a large crock pot and fill with water. You can get the bones from a butcher, or use leftovers from your meal (bones from organically grown, grass fed animals are best). Add three tablespoons of raw apple cider vinegar (Bragg’s is a good brand) – this is to pull the minerals out of the bones, and salt and pepper for taste. . Simmer for several hours – five hours will do, overnight is preferable. Drink at least 1 litre of broth every day or use it in soups.

If you haven’t already got the crock pot fired up I suggest you start now. It’s a simple recipe with a big and beautifying pay off!

Bragg’s Apple Cider Vinegar is available and most Healthfood stores.

    Hi there, are there any particular types of bones that are good to use (e.g. chicken, pork etc)? Or is it better to use a combination? Also should I use bones that have already been cooked? Or does it not matter? Thanks

      Any bones will do.
      I usually make broth after I’ve made a chicken roast for dinner – just wash the left over bones off and throw them in the pot.

    Hi Sarah,
    I’m a vegetarian. Are there any other recipes without meat that will reduce cellulite?

    • nbblog-admin says:

      As a matter of fact Apple Cider Vinegar has been known to help reduce cellulite.
      Try drinking 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed into a glass of water each morning. You can add a dash of honey as a sweetener.
