Benefits of Bone Broth?
As covered in my second book, I use bone broth in many of my recipes due to the health benefits. This Creamy Beef and Cabbage Soup is no exception. Bone broth improves gut health, it’s anti-inflammatory and very nutrient-dense. Simmering bones for a long time (not boiling) extracts the collagen, glycine, proline, and glutamine from them. Collagen is important to joint health as well as digestive health. Glycine is an essential amino acid and it helps you sleep. Proline plays important roles in protein synthesis and structure, metabolism (particularly the synthesis of arginine, polyamines, and glutamate via pyrroline-5-carboxylate), and nutrition, as well as wound healing, antioxidative reactions, and immune responses. Glutamine is produced in the muscles and is distributed by the blood to the organs that need it. Glutamine might help gut function, the immune system, and other essential processes in the body, especially in times of stress.
What Makes this Soup Work?
I use dairy-free cream cheese made from nuts that are also paleo-friendly like Miyoko’s Creamery Cream Cheese or Kite Hill Cream Cheese. You can also use my homemade cashew or cauliflower cream (for nut-free) – If you don’t want to purchase these specialty items. I find them at most grocery stores. Giant, Wegman’s, Publix, or Whole Foods.
