Ahead of my 4 year old starting school I worried about a great many things at length - how he would make friends, would he like his teacher, could he be trusted to wash his hands properly after going to the toilet, how damaging to his self esteem would it be sitting next to a boy with photographic memory. You get the idea.
What I completely failed to register was the potential threat to his dietary well-being.
It was only a matter of time before I caved into the Paleo peer pressure of bone broth consumption!
For months I have been using Great Lakes gelatin in my Nutribullets but the time has arrived. Throughout my childhood and teenage years and even now, whenever I visit my parents or grandparents, I am always presented with bone broth in some guise - chicken with red dates and goji berries well before they became a fashionable superfood, pork bones with a host of obscure roots, like wai san etc.
Some evenings all I want is a simple, speedy but still healthy and tasty supper.
It takes less time than perusing a takeout menu, phoning to order, then waiting for delivery. No wasted packaging or unnecessary fuel on the delivery. Best of all, no unknown or unwanted ingredients lurking unseen!
