Bone broth at breakfast?!

Waffles, pancakes, muffins, whatever the common breakfast themed food, it is typically loaded with gluten and grains.  This can make breakfast difficult to plan for when you’re looking to change your diet habits to include more healthy and high protein options.  Eggs and bacon are a great option, but may be difficult to eat everyday first thing in the morning.  While broth may seem like an unusual option in America, it is a widely accepted breakfast in many other countries! Here are 5 reasons to have Osso Good bone broth at breakfast.

1. It’s getting cold outside!

What better way to start the day than bone broth that will warm you down to your very bones?!  As the temperatures continue to dip down to the lower digits, a warming broth in the morning can be exactly what your body needs to get started in the morning.

2. No time!

Osso Good bone broth is perfect when you don’t have a lot of time in the morning.  Set your Osso Good to simmer over the stove while you’re getting ready.  Add in some leftover veggies, chopped scallions, minced garlic, and ginger.  Abra Cadabra and 5 minutes later, it’s done!  Out the door with your mug of hot breakfast.  How easy is that?!

3. Tastes GREAT with eggs!

Looking to include your daily ritual of eggs in the morning?  It’s a great and complete protein to add to your bone broth, and it is simple.  Simply crack an egg into your broth and by the time it’s about to boil, your egg is cooked in your broth and ready to go.  Your coworkers will be impressed!

4. Oatmeal is still an option!

One of the hardest parts of abiding by a gluten free diet was having to get rid of my oatmeal in the morning.  But savory oatmeal is even better than the sweet oatmeal I grew up with.  Don’t just take my word for it…you must try it for yourself!  Here is the recipe I adapted from Craig Fear,  that got me hooked:

Soak 1 part oatmeal to 2 parts water overnight.  Add 1 tsp yogurt or lemon juice.  By doing this step, you are making the oatmeal more digestible and also cook more quickly.

Drain the water and add Osso Good beef or chicken bone broth and minced garlic to taste.  Add frozen peas. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Season with salt, soy sauce, or hot sauce of your choosing. Top with peanuts and a drizzle of sesame oil.

This is a typical Burmese version of this savory oatmeal that I can’t get enough of!

5. Nourishing and Light!

Many of my friends can’t imagine eating breakfast, especially a heavy one.  This leaves them feeling empty and malnourished until lunch time, and not a good recipe for success.  Our bodies require breakfast to start the day off on the right foot.  Osso Good bone broths are high in protein, yet light.  This is a great option for those who can’t imagine eating soon after waking and an even better option for those looking to reset their digestion.
