I am looking to make some broths before I have VSG.
In your opinion which one is better? The homemade or store bought?
I am thinking about bone broth and veggie broth. I just can't seem to find what the best for you is and why. I will be freezing some if I do make it in the instapot
Thank you very much :)
Bone broth is much better for protein levels, collagen which is good for healing etc. This is the recipe I use in my instant pot. I would choose to use less of the salt because post op right now I'm sensitive to it, but I also use a garlic salt medley as part of my spices. I made a few batches, after skimming the fat once it chilled I froze it in ice cube trays so it was about 2tbsp in each. That has worked out because two equal a quarter cup which is how much broth I was told to take in per serving. It?s a great recipe...you can skip all their experimenting and go straight to the recipe if you hit the jump to recipe tab just under the description. Oh! Also I didn't use chicken feet because it creeps me out I just used a turkey carcass I had frozen and still got great gelatinous results.

I tried making my own ahead of time. I am a decent cook, but I found that buying low sodium soup in a can and draining off the solids worked best for me. I know that's kind of lazy but for a working gal trying to get all your liquids in and getting a decent flavor, this is what worked best for me. Just an option.
