My Secret in a Bowl !

A cure in most if not all traditional households. Broth has always been considered a healing food, especially if you consider the tradition of eating chicken soup when you’re sick with a cold. Meat and fish stocks play a role in all traditional cuisines be it, French, Italian, Chinese, Japanese, African, South American, Middle Eastern and Russian.

Traditional cooking uses meat bones as a base for delicious stock because it is the secret to cooking great recipes. But it’s also incredibly nutritious and has scores of health benefits. There are immerse benefits of bone broth, even our grandmothers used it.

Here are more than enough reasons  to make it one of your staple diets.

  • Great in nutrient absorption.
  • Supports hair, nails, skin and joints.
  • Great source of amino acid
  • Gut and immune health
  • Boosts immunity
  • Gets rid of colds
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Improve hydration
  • Anti-Aging
  • Can improve sleep.
  • It is also anti-tumor

Broth is great because of its versatility. Many chefs use it as a base for soups, gravies, sauces and more. You can use it as a base for soups and stews, in a mug by itself, as a warm drink, as a base for gravy and sauce. You can also use it to cook veggies in for a greater nutrient benefit.

Personally I am obsessed  with the chicken with vegetable soup and it had changed my life, I am so grateful to my Angel ” Jona” who got me to actually start having bone broth, and now, I  go on for weeks and weeks eating it daily from Monday to Friday (Sunday to Thursday while in Dubai). Here is how Jona  makes my daily soup.



  • 1 whole Organic chicken
  • 1 Ginger
  • 1 onion
  • Lemon grass and lime leaves
  • 1 chicken stock
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 cauliflower
  • 1 zucchini
  • 2 potatoes
  • Coriander leaves chopped
  • 1 Lemon

Boil the whole chicken in 1 and a ½ liter of water for 45 minutes to an hour, then remove chicken from the pan. Add garlic, lemon grass and lime leaves. After 5 minutes, put coriander and lemon juice. A few seconds later, your soup is ready to serve.

Hope you enjoy it.
