No one, but no one takes their health more seriously than New Yorkers. Who’s at the forefront of all the farm to table food push, who’s drinking and eating up big at juice bars and salad bars and who but New Yorkers entertain each other at social events boasting about their spin class or cross fit routines or spreading the word about that very special fermented kimchee that is so good for you? Gwyneth Paltrow doesn’t need to preach good nutrition and a healthy lifestyle to New Yorkers, I mean who do you think she got all that stuff from?
So now anothr terrific health food kick is all the rage, Chef Marco Canaro has opened a take-away window called Brodo in the East Village and there he sells something dear to the heart of Jewish Mommas and Italian Nonnas, bone broth. It’s made with either chicken or beef bones and see the video for where they get the masses of bones they use to produce it. They also offer flavorings such as ginger and salt.
There is a reason all those Mommas and grandmothers from way back have poured the stuff down our throats when we were poorly. It speeds healing. And it also has a lot of minerals and the bits of cartilege and tendons in it that are great for joint pain. And it is terrific for our gut flora, that part of our body that is getting so much attention these days because it is so important to our health. So wander down to the East Village, join the sleek and beautiful New Yorkers in the line and grab yourself some bone broth. It tastes absolutely great and it’s just what you need at any time, especially when the weather turns nasty.
