Chicken stock, like any meat stock, is rich in minerals, gelatin, and collagen; all of which can keep bones and teeth strong; joint ligaments supple; and hair soft. I personally experienced my hair improving tenfold!! I started drinking a quart of stock a day and in a matter of weeks, my hair softened with much less grey … thank God for collagen.
There always seemed to be a pot of soup simmering on the back burner of our stove growing up. My mother would toss in a whole chicken, couple of onions, carrots, celery, herbs, garlic and then top off with cold water. The smell, especially of bay leaves wafted up through my floorboards; enticing me down for the day ahead and for breakfast 🙂
