Making homemade broth may not be the first thing on your mind in these warm summer months – it’s been around 90 here for days and days – but broth and/or stock is an important staple of the SCD diet.
I like to make up a bunch and freeze it by the cup to have handy for recipes. Making broth is super easy and once you do it, you’ll never want to have anything else (which, we’re not supposed to do on SCD anyway).
Chicken broth is my favorite. I love the flavor and it goes with so many recipes. The recipe I’m going to show you is for basic broth/stock. This is not for bone broth, which cooks for a lot longer.
You can easily tailor this recipe to your own tastes and health level. If you are newer to the diet and still experiencing symptoms you may want to leave out the seasonings and even the vegetables. You can make it with just chicken, just chicken and carrots, or with just a little salt. It’s all up to you. I’m giving my full recipe, but it’s totally modifiable.
