We’re on the verge of flu and cold season and I think like many of us, I’m scrambling to keep my families immune system up to speed and do all I can to prevent getting sick. One of the most important way to keep your body in check is by focusing on gut health. Bone broth has been around for decades and is still one of the most nutritional habits you can adopt. Not only does it help with gut issues-it boosts the immune system, improves joint health and even helps with food intolerances and allergies!
What is bone broth you might ask? It is a spice and herb liquid that is simmered with animal (usually cattle, chicken and fish) bones and ligaments for a prolonged amount of time to release healing compounds like collagen, proline, glycine, bioavailable minerals, anti inflammatory amino acids and glutamine.
Benefits of Bone Broth:
- Repairing torn cartilage
- Relieving joint pain
- Soothing an inflamed digestive tract
- Strengthening the gut lining
- Maintaining bone density
- Boosting immunity
- Improving sleep quality
- Improving energy levels
A few years ago, my family kept getting sick and could not rid ourselves of cold/flu symptoms. Looking for relief, my mother ventured into making her own bone broth. While it is a simple process, it entails buying bones and ligament and then heating them on the stove for many, many hours. She made a big batch and we had to consume it quickly before it went bad. I think my mother would say it was worth the effort because of the health benefits but buying bone broth from a trusted source in portion controlled packaging with a long shelf life is very appealing after that experience.
Kettle and Fire sent me 3 different flavors of their bone broth and I must say, all 3 are so tasty and drinkable. I’ve had bone broth many times before and I don’t love it, but Kettle and Fire’s broth is exceptional.
Kettle and Fire Bone Broth is:
- Made only using organic ingredients and grass-fed, organic bones
- Hormone and antibiotic free
- Slow simmered for a minimum of 10 hours, and up to 20+ hours
- The only shelf-stable bone broth with absolutely no additives or preservatives, and a shelf life of 2 years
- Shipped in responsible packaging and 100% recyclable material
- Packaged in tetra packs to take up less room in your pantry

**For improved health, it is recommended to consume 3 cartons a week.**
What’s interesting is that Kettle and Fire packages their broth hot in a vacuum sealed carton that has a two year shelf-life! The packaging is recyclable, sustainable, and made with natural materials. Plus, the cartons make it easy to prepare! Just open the carton, pour in a bowl or mug and heat!
Along with their different flavors of bone broth, Kettle and Fire offer soups made with bone broth like creamy tomato, grass fed chili, Thai curry and miso soup!
My favorite out of the three flavors I tried is the Mushroom Chicken. And I don’t even like mushrooms! It was so tasty and the great thing about bone broth is how easy it is to digest. It actually filled me up and did not upset my stomach. I will definitely be ordering more from Kettle and Fire!
I highly recommend Kettle and Fire bone broth if you’re looking for a source to add this healthy food to your diet! You can buy 1 time or sign up for a monthly supply where you get a 20% savings plus quite a few freebies and you can cancel or pause at anytime. Depending on how many cartons you buy at a time, the price varies from $6-8 a carton.
I recommend trying Kettle and Fire. Having cartons of bone broth on hand this winter is such a good idea. When illness strikes, you can be ready!
