Hello All! For those in the states, I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. No post pie guilt. Just love and good food! We had a snowy one, that’s for sure! But cozy and quiet. I made the Kiwi’s favorite, lamb stew. And I also tried a new recipe from Salt Fat Acid Heat cookbook; roasted buttermilk chicken. I know, we’re crazy not to have turkey, but it’s kind of a tradition now.
I’ve also been enjoying mugs of hot bone broth latte on these cold mornings. Primarily, I drink it because it’s nourishing and and is fantastic for improved gut health. But also because it’s delicious. Warm drinks are the equivalent of wrapping yourself up in a cozy, soft blanket. You know what I mean? They’re relaxing, calming, and comforting.
Speaking of relaxing, are you familiar with the healthy living concept known as “The 4 Pillars”? Health experts believe that there are 4 keys to living a physically and emotionally healthy life.
What are the 4 pillars of health?
A healthy balanced life should include all of these:
Relaxation – Taking time to relax is very important, especially in the hectic, high paced lifestyle that many of us live in. We need to give our body time to release the stress that builds up inside of us. Sit on your back porch and watch the sunrise while sipping a bone broth latte!
Movement – A national TV commercial for joint health medication was released several years ago. The tagline for the commercial is, “A body in motion tends to stay in motion.” Whenever we take time to stretch or take a quick walk around the block, our body is reenergized.
Food – Plain and simple, EATING well plays an important role in FEELING well. The key is to fuel your body with a healthy balance of protein, healthy carbohydrates, fruits and vegetables, healthy fats, and dairy (if your body tolerates it).
Sleep – Do you know that sleep is the only time the brain is able to release the toxins that build up on it while we are awake? (source) Without adequate sleep, your body’s immune system is at risk of disease.
Now, keep these in mind as I share 4 similar, but different components of health. The CORE 4!
The Core 4
My bone broth latte recipe is an adapted version of a recipe from author, Steph Gaudreau. Her book, “The Core 4” is fantastic!
The book focuses on living with intention. With The Core 4, you’ll build your health in a sustainable way using her version of the four pillars:
- Empower Your Mind (Relaxation)
- Eat Nourishing Foods
- Move with Intention
- Recharge Your Energy (Slowdown, Sleep)
It’s an amazing resource with exercises, meal plan, recipes, and inner calming techniques. Which I all think we need during hustle and bustle of the season. Am I right?
Thank you Steph for your guidance and wisdom in this area of life! So needed!
This bone broth latte recipe really inspired me in more than just one of the core components. First of all, eating nourishing foods (see health benefits of ingredients below).
And two, recharging my energy. How? By taking time to refuel, nurture my body, and slow down while I savor this morning drink. Yes, despite the overcommitted schedule. Taking time to pause and savor the present moment, can return, create energy, ya know? Heck, now that I think of it, that relaxation is part of another Core 4; Empowering the Mind!
So, let’s talk more about this recipe for bone broth latte.
Benefits of bone broth latte
Bone broth is more popular now than ever before. It is similar to traditional broth in how it looks and tastes, but bone broth is much healthier than traditional broth. This is because the bones are cooked until the marrow releases. Bone marrow is a fantastic source of collagen, one of the key components our body needs for healthy bones, skin, blood, and tendons.
The body does create collagen, but we sometimes need help, and that’s where bone broth comes in handy. When you combine that bone broth with a healthy fat like ghee, coconut oil, etc., you end up with a hot drink that will help your body recharge and refocus!
How to Make a Bone Broth Latte on the Stove
- Heat bone broth, spices, and butter over medium heat, stirring until combined.
- Use a hand blender or regular blender to blend the coconut cream into the broth mixture. Blend until mixture is creamy and frothy.
- Divide equally into 2 mugs. Top with sea salt and herbs. Sip and savor!
