Do you make your own broths?

I am one week out from surgery and trying to add some variety since chicken broth is starting to be unappealing to me. I am mixing it up with my protein shakes but want to know what other options you can recommend for broths? any recipes? or tips?

there are y many options, really, for broth. There is beef broth snd vegetable broth.
Broth is bland for a reason. It is gentle on a healing system.
you can make you own broth by boiling any of these ingredients for a long time. Be careful of too much spice right now.

Thank you. I recently got (I think they are swanson) bone broth cups and I really like the ginger tumeric flavor. I hate spicey things, so I am steering clear

I just made my first batch of homemade broth and it's magical! I took the two carcasses (bones, leftover meat, skin) from Costco rotisserie chickens, put them in my crockpot with salt, pepper, onions, carrots, celery, and bay leaves, plus one tbsp of red wine vinegar. And left on low for 24 hours. Then I strained it through a sieve and put the huge Tupperware in the fridge. Once it was there a few hours, I scooped off the top layer of fat. The rest is a dark and rich chicken broth. I froze in separate containers and used some to make my gravy and my stuffing. Delicious!

One week out from surgery I was using Unjury chicken soup flavored protein powder, but you have to mix it with lukewarm water or it clumps. I also use Miner's chicken base with ho****er (can get it on Amazon, refrigerate it).

With my revision I made my own mostly. Like mentioned it's best not to get to adventurous this close to surgery. It is so much better though!

I used my pressure cooker to make big batches and freeze them in smaller containers.

I will have to see about getting a pressure cooker, too. I have a crock pot so I will have to start there.

Oh my goodness, that sounds magical! I will have to try that! How to you get how many grams of protein you are taking in?

It really is! I don't count how many protein grams it adds because I have no way of knowing. I know it's protein and not carbs so I just use it with abandon!

Here is my go-to for broth. So easy . I would freeze the chicken and save it till you can eat soft foods and grind it in the food processor and make chicken salad.

OOH, I never thought about doing that for later. I start mushy in a few days, kinda scared but really happy to actually (sort of) chew my food
