Beef bone broth--newbie with questions

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I am 5 weeks pregnant and waiting for a friend who owns in butcher shop in Bend, OR to bring me some good beef bones. In the meantime, I bought some really good quality beef bone broth from a local shop who sells some traditional foods.  Now I am being indecisive and can't decide what I want to do with this goodness.  Anyone have a favorite soup or recipe??

 

This is my 2nd pregnancy.  My daughter is 2.5 and I had a rough pregnancy the first time. I had terrible morning sickness. I thought I was healthy then but I ended up with gestational diabetes (failed by one point) and pregnancy induced hypertension at 36 weeks. My daughter was only 5 lbs 12 ounces at birth. I am learning more about traditional food and though I have a long way to go compared to you ladies, I am willing to learn! I take liquid cal/mag and liquid fish oil each day.  I have been taking Garden of Life prenatals, just to fill in gaps.

 

I now own a Vitamix and make green juice with kale, chard, spinach (alternating greens for the most part) a little fruit and coconut oil and chia seeds each morning.  I am eating a lot of sprouted nuts and seeds.  I am drinking a blend of loose leaf teas with peppermint, nettles, RRL, etc. I am trying to make a lot of bone broths and we just bought 31 pounds of wild salmon and half a pig that was finished on truffles and hazelnuts.  I only drank Kombucha here and there pre pregnancy so do you think it is okay to drink it now if my body is not as used to it? 

 

I am trying to eat Bubbies sauercraut but that is all for fermented foods.

 

Since I am quite the newbie, can you suggest some other things I should or should not be doing? Thanks!

 I realize that my questions may be difficult to answer when you all do so much more than me and have more knowledge.  I guess I am just looking for suggestions of things to do/and or read to learn more about eating traditional foods.  What things did you change in your diet first?  What are your daily staples/meals?  Thank you.

Does bone broth contain B-12?
