When I am feeling that I need a good recharge and reset, I turn to this wonderful ‘vibrant life in a mug’ recipe. After drinking it, my energy almost instantly responds. I found this recipe from Stephanie Myers ‘Fresh Tart’ blog a few years ago and often use it instead of a morning cup of coffee when my body needs a bit more support. You can make yourself just the pure broth and drink it in a mug (delicious), or use the broth as a soup base adding in some proteins and veggies.
Healing Green Broth (Paleo, AIP, Bone Broth, Whole30, Low Carb)
serves 2 in small mugs or 1 in a bowl
1 cup rich broth or stock
1 cup watercress or arugula leaves
2 tablespoons each chopped tarragon, chervil, and chives (or other favorite fresh herbs)
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice (or more to taste)
1 tablespoon ghee or grass-fed butter (substitute extra-virgin olive or avocado oil for first stage of AIP)
1 tablespoon MCT oil or extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon collagen (optional)
sea salt to taste
Heat broth until very hot.
While broth heats, put remaining ingredients except salt in a Vitamix or other high-powered blender. Pour broth into the blender and (carefully, especially when working with hot liquids) blend on high speed until pale green and frothy.
Season to taste with salt and additional lemon juice.
