I once made my own homemade bone broth every single week! No lie, it was my son’s first food after breastmilk. He LOVED it and would beg for it! I believe that has helped form his healthy savory pallet! He doesn’t crave sweets like most children. On my birthday we went out to eat and he devoured a 14 ounce rib-eye steak on his own! The restaurant owners were impressed!
Now that life is quite busy, I LOVE that I now have a quality bone broth product like Kettle and Fire! This is not your traditional watery stock broth that I grew up with. This is filled with collagen and nutrients just like you made a pot of bone broth at home, without the 2 days of simmering!
I LOVE how popular bone broth has become! When I get asked, “I am sick and do not have an appetite. What should I eat?” I always tell them, drink bone broth! It is filled with nutrients and will help them get better!
Bone broth provides a nutrient profile that is extremely healthy for any lifestyle!
1. It has collagen! That lovely collegen that helps keep skin healthy and joints feeling great! Read more on collagen HERE.
2. Electrolytes and micro-nutrients to replenish lost energy (AKA the dreaded “keto flu”.)
3. Broth has a hearty, wholesome flavor to get that “treat yourself” feeling that became less common when you threw all your junk food away.
I also get asked all the time, “Maria, if you do not recommend Gatorade for my kids, what should they drink when they are in sports?” Skip the sugary drink filled with fructose and food dye and pack a box of Kettle and Fire broth! You could think of bone broth as the healthy and natural “Gatorade!” Poke a hole in the top and toss in a straw and you have a healthy “juice box!”
Kettle and Fire is so generous! They are offering 25% OFF for my readers!

I also love slow cooking! Slow cooking makes the house smell delicious when you get home! I also love that you can open the slow cooker up and eat when you are hungry! If you are having a hard time feeding a busy family during the school year with sports, after school activities and work obligations, OR if you are practicing Intermittent Fasting and don’t eat at the same time, SLOW COOKING is perfect! After school or work, just open the cover and dish up a bowl as needed!

“Hi Maria and Craig,
I started my keto journey about a year ago. I knew it was working because I was feeling better, clothes didn’t fit anymore, the scale was moving down and people were commenting how good I was looking but as always hung on to self criticism that is wasn’t that big of a change. These were friends and family, they were just being nice right?
This morning really solidified how far I’ve come. At the Dr’s office they informed me I was 62 pounds lighter than I was last time I had seen them. That’s huge!!! 62 pounds!
Thank you again so much for providing the guidance and feedback that you do.” – Stelli
