If you have been in to see our Acupuncturist Sarah,
Chances are she has recommended her vegetable or bone broth!
With Fall in the air it is a great time to start prepping these nourishing broths for the fall and winter season. Broths are a great way for a deep nourishment and immune boost.
Here is her recipe for the vegetable broth she prepped this past weekend!
This veggie broth can be substituted for when recipes call for bone broth and is 100% vegetarian. Sarah saves veggie trims over time and freezes them until she has enough to make a big pot of stock. Shitake Mushrooms are a great addition as they are antimicrobial , boost the immune system and high in vitamin D.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine they are known to boost qi and blood.
