Granola Bars

Many people turn to granola bars when trying to eat healthier - the problem is that most granola bars aren't very healthy.  They are over-processed, have too much sugar and sometimes taste like saw-dust.

Beef Stew

Serves 6

Comfort food is not only 'good for the soul'...

- Grass-fed beef is a great source of anti-inflammatory Omega 3 fatty acids

- Bone broth has l-glutamine - the main source of fuel for the cells that line the digestive tract

- Vitamins and minerals from veggies

Bone broth is often available at health food stores or butcher shops – if you’d like to make it yourself  – see recipe https://glendabritton.com/recipe/bone-broth/

Freeze leftovers for up to 3 months.  Before serving, defrost stew in the refrigerator for 24 hours and then gently reheat on the stove over medium-low heat until hot.

Serve with a loaf of all-natural sourdough bread!
