What are you up to this weekend?
(This post may contain affiliate links)
I've been fighting a terrible cold this week, so we're going to stay pretty close to home. Earlier in the week, I was pretty miserable, but after a few good nights of sleep, I think the tide has finally shifted back in my favor
For those who follow The Veggies, I have a favor to ask. As 2017 kicks off, there are several posts planned for the year ahead, but I'd also love to know
What would you like to read about?
Are there topics you'd like to discuss?
We've talked about fun things like gratitude, parenting (and grandparenting), gardens and what's playing on our iPods. We've also talked about serious things like grief, saying “no,” addiction, and missing someone like crazy
But is there anything specific that's on your mind? Or that you'd like to read more about?
Smoothies? Kitchen Gadgets? Specific vitamins & minerals? Fermented foods? Healthy treats for the pets we love? Cookbooks? People who inspire? Superfoods? The best meal to impress a girl that's easy to make?
Let me know, and I'll get started
In the meantime, whatever you're up to this weekend, I hope you have a good one!
Today the final installment in a week-long series about bone broth.
In Part I .. the process our family uses, along with a few tips and tricks we've picked up along the way. Part II featured a recipe (of sorts) for my mom's bone broth stew, one of the most incredible things I've ever eaten. Part III highlighted a few of the many benefits of this amazing superfood
Where can someone go to source the best ingredients? Who offers quality bone broth for sale? What are some resources (books, websites, etc .. ) if you’d like to know more?

Making your own bone broth will by far produce the best-tasting broth for the least amount of money. But if you'd like to purchase it, there are several places it can be ordered online
When it comes to sourcing bones, start with your local butcher, meat locker, or coop. The Weston A. Price Foundation may also have a list of places to purchase. If you find yourself completely out of luck, there are a number online retailers
The Nourished Kitchen tested broth from a number of different online sources and published their findings
