Bone Broth Cleanse Day 2 – Are you feeling hungry yet?
First of all, despite an amazing meal last night, I went to bed feeling a bit hungry. Seems like this is a totally normal feeling after day one because it happens to me every time. Ideally, with any cleanse, you are attempting to rid yourself of bad habits and replace them with nutrient dense beneficial ones. That is our goal with the Osso Good 7 day Bone Broth Cleanse, to reboot your gut and revive your health.
Breakfast Lunch and Paleo Snack
For breakfast I had my same old 15 oz. of Osso Good Beef with 16 oz. of coffee, and a banana or orange for breakfast. When lunch came around I ate a bowl of my leftovers, which gave me another 5-10 oz. of broth for the day.
If you like Tofu, an easy snack to make for the next couple of days would be this Honey Tofu recipe. Just substitute the 3 tbsp. of soy sauce for coconut aminos and nix the vinegar. Usually when I make a snack like this I will normally just have 2-3 pieces of Tofu with a little 5 oz. shot of Signature bone broth. Just like when you take a quick shot at the bar, you want the taste and punch to be smooth and robust; that’s our Signature broth. If you’re weary of drinking it straight, but you need to reach your 40 oz. to freedom, it doesn’t hurt to add a little sea salt and hot sauce!
Yumbo Gumbo Soup
Finally, dinner time came and I had a delicious Gumbo bone broth paleo meal found on Zenbelly. It has a lot of protein, a lot bone broth, and tons of flavor. Especially relevant, 80% of the people I tell that I am on a paleo bone broth diet ask me, “why do you need to be like a caveman to eat well?” My answer, YOU don’t! I really believe YOU don’t have to eat paleo to eat well, but I do. As a result of growing up in Wisconsin I loved eating… cheese, dairy, fried cheese, Culver’s Frozen Yogurt!!!… all that stuff tastes amazing, but now that I’m in my 30’s that food can ruin my stomach and sap my energy for days.
Therefore, my Osso Good 7 day bone broth cleanse is my 3 month oil change, my blueprint to eat smarter, and a reminder of how good my body can feel. Consequently, I couldn’t have felt more full and more satisfied after eating this Gumbo. I have a feeling I’ll go to sleep a little easier tonight.
