In 2014, we're not letting life get in the way of eating healthy (we mean it this time!). Unfortunately, with a busy life some forget about the many healthy recipes that are also quick and easy. These healthy recipes can help lead to a better lifestyle and are easy so they will make your life easier at the same time! Some people have work, school, kids, and a social life. However, it's important not to forget to stay healthy, and with these healthy recipes we've made it a little easier! With the class "Food as Medicine 101", hosted on January 8, 2014, teacher, Mary Ellen Hill showed us a few quick and healthy recipes to bring into our lives.
Mineral Rich Bone Broth
1.5 pounds chicken bones(from pastured-raised organic chicken) or beef bones (grass fed)
Onions (keeping the skins on will make the broth darker in color)
Himalayan sea salt
2 T. Bragg’s apple cider vinegar
Place all ingredients in slow cooker set to low. Add water to cover ingredients. Cook for 24-48 hours.
Strain liquid off and store in glass jars. Keep refrigerated or freeze.
Great to drink as is or use for soups, sauces, ect.
This is one of the healthy recipes which can go great with a variety of things. Whether you have already made soup or sauce, or if you ran to the store and bought some, this broth will add a nice homemade taste! Also, with the ability to freeze the broth you can plan many meals to use with the broth.
Sweet-Tart Blueberry Gelatin Treat
grain-free • gluten-free • dairy-free • nightshade-free1 cup blueberries, defrosted from frozen or fresh
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice Zest from lemons and/or limes as desired
1 tablespoon maple syrup (optional – this flavor doesn’t need to be sweetened as the lemon-lime does)
6 tablespoons grass-fed gelatin (Great Lakes) preparation
In a blender, combine the blueberries and lemon juice until no visible skin or large pieces of berries appear.
In a small pot over medium-low heat, whisk the blueberry lemon mixture with the lemon zest, maple syrup, and gelatin together vigorously until the gelatin is well dissolved and the mixture becomes a nice slurry. Pour the mixture into a small glass or ceramic dish. Preferably 6×9″ or so. The smaller the pan, the thicker your gummies will be.
This is another treat within healthy recipes that is also fairly quick and easy but! By restricting gluten, dairy, grain, and nightshade you can make a healthy sweet treat that many are sure to love.To learn more about other healthy living ideas check out our previous blog post by teacher Tracy Mortorana!
