Homemade broth VS Store bought.

on 2/24/18 6:44 pm

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 :)

I went to Au Bon Pain and bought the broth off of thier chicken noodle soup. Far tastier than canned and no work required on my part.

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.
