Books I Recommend, Sleep Amounts, Vitamins, Food

Questions from a reader - this one's about sleep amounts, vitamins, and books.

Hi Sebastian,

I'd like to thank you for writing the blog posts on your website. I just found your blog today, but I see a lot of stuff I think I can use on there.

Bones

On Natural Health Hack

“Going Paleo” is not something I think we’ll incorporate into our family protocol anytime soon. Nor is being a vegetarian. Both of these lifestyle choices could easily take several blog posts all on their own and yet as if they were politics, I may stay away from them in their entirety….we’ll see.

However, both of these relatively drastic dietary choices have merits, and for the topic of this blog I want to talk about bones. Bones...as in using the complete carcass in the case of poultry. The nutrient dense stock you get from them when properly preparing at home makes it not even a comparable product to anything you buy in the store. If you look at the ingredient list in anything store bought there is no indication of bones or how the stock is made. The bones are the key, and usually the difference in terminology. Chicken broth is usually made when cooking the meat with some vegetables and seasonings. Chicken stock is what we’re talking about here….made with the bones.

When cooked at the lowest simmer possible, for the longest amount of time….as much as 24 hours or so, the minerals that leech from the bones are second to none. When I drink it, I seriously feel nourished deep down….it’s hard to describe.

Here are some of the reasons why:
