Bone Broth Borscht Soup

Borscht Soup

The absolute best thing that’s happened since my book, The Bone Broth Miracle Diet was released: getting random pictures of ‘first batch’ bone broth posted to my social media!  I’ve loved hearing all the incredible results that people are getting, and I’m glad that word is getting out that bone broth rocks! 

If you already drink bone broth, though, you might be like me – sometimes sick of sipping it plain, and always looking for a new way to use it.  #foodieproblems

On top of that, that I have a challenge with my seasonal organic product box – SO many beets right now, you guys.  It gave me an idea, though – Borscht soup!  Could you do it with bone broth?!?  YES, and it’s delicious

So, make or buy some quality bone broth today (or pull some from the freezer)!  And get this traditional Russian soup going.  It’s easy to make and is a delicious side for almost any meal.
