Understanding Your Stocks & Broths

Original Chicken Stock

Food always finds a way into our hearts. In a world of emerging allergies, chronic illnesses, and gut diseases, can we still enjoy food like we used to? With busy schedules, rising food costs and threatened food supply, is a healthy diet still manageable? As with life, never give up on food. Besides being a source of energy, food has evolved to serve us emotionally and mentally.

This motherhood journey hasn’t been easy. Balancing work, family life and ensuring the well-being of my child is a struggle. I’m well fortunate to have stocks and broths come in as my kitchen bestie. These culinary bases are nourishing and delectable. A quick simmer with freshly picked vegetables, high quality protein and your favorite noodles…voilà! In a matter of minutes, you’ve got yourself a healthy and scrumptious meal, made possible with your favourite stock or broth.

Why Stocks and Broths are good for you:

Broths are usually prepared with meat, vegetables, herbs aromatics, and spices. It has a thin consistency and makes your meal more flavoursome. On the other hand, stocks are made with a higher proportion of animal bones (occasionally roasted for enhanced flavours) and mirepoix and simmered for extended periods of time. Just like how we do it in Shane’s Kitchen, both stocks and broths can be left unseasoned for you to enjoy it your way, reaping all the benefits mentioned below.

  • Nutritional deficiencies are one of the main triggers for the development of gastrointestinal diseases. Broth and stock can heal and repair your digestive system. They aid in absorbing proteins and minerals, ensuring your body gets the most out of the nutrients you consume.
  • Consuming broth and stock can give your immune system a boost, helping you stay healthy. These liquids assist in detoxifying your liver, promoting overall liver health.
  • Dairy Substitute for kids: Broths and stock are great protein and mineral sources to support your baby’s weaning journey. Some broths are also rich in calcium and helping babies with development of strong bones and teeth.
  • Fish stocks and broth, made from fatty fish like salmon, can be a potent source of omega-3 fatty acids. These healthy fats support brain function and cardiovascular health.
  • The collagen and amino acids found in stocks and broths can maintain bone and joint health, enhance skin elasticity and hydration, improving complexion.
  • Some broths are also natural sources of essential electrolytes like potassium and magnesium, aiding in maintaining proper hydration, blood health, and supporting nerve and muscle function.
  • Stocks and broths also contain anti-inflammatory properties: celery, onions, garlic, ginger, herbs and spices are rich in natural occurring antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties, helping to protect and prevent your body from giving in to bacteria and viruses.
