I have been wanting to make something for a while now with my vermicelli rice noodles, but to be honest it has been too hot to make anything on the stove.
Today was cooler than it has been and I couldn’t think of anything better than a delicious nourishing bone broth with a good dose of fresh veggies (carrots, onions an kale), lots of chilli, thin rice noodles and topped with a poached egg (and more chilli!).
You have to try this bowl of goodness, a great one for a quiet evening in (also one if you working on improving your beauty sleep, did you catch my blog post on that here). I have made my delicious noodle jars before (great grab and go lunch, just add boiling water when you are ready to eat).
If you don’t have time or haven’t made bone broth (here’s how to make my homemade chicken one here), do not panic I picked up some delicious free range chicken bone broth from Harris Farm, Nutra Organics also do a fabulous dehydrated one.
So many benefits to the ingredients added. 15 minutes tops to make. Great mid week no-brainer feed.
Why it is good for you:
Bone broth; did you know that boiling your bones releases gelatin which is a gentle way of helping restore connective tissue within your gut. This gelatin will literally heal and seal your gut aiding with inflammation, allergies and unwanted foods being absorbed into your system. When the carcass is cooked for a long time, the bones, tendons and cartilage breaks down to release glucosamine and other sulphate compounds, which are actually the same compounds in expensive tablets used to treat arthritis and joint pain. This broth is also a great aid to boost your immunity.
Organic eggs are a full protein that contain all essential amino acids, ideal to help your body replenish, nourish and heal your skin, tissues and muscles.
Red onion and spring onions are a great source of sulphur as well as similar properties to garlic, it is antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral, it can help increase our immune function. They are also good for your blood and circulatory system. A nurturing antioxidant and anti-inflammatory on the body, their antioxidant (quercatin) helps mop up the oxidation of fatty acids.
Carrots are rich in beta-carotene too and also vitamin A (good for your eye health) and an antioxidant which helps mop up oxidising free radicals in the body.
Kale is a great source of fibre for digestion and beta carotene, the precursor to help make vitamin A, C and calcium.
