A year ago, I decided to quit coffee. Cold turkey.
Have you ever gone through caffeine withdrawal? It's awful. I felt like a heavy steam roller had run over my entire body. Everything hurt. It was worse than any bad flu I've had. I wanted to die. It was awful.
After 2 days, I started feeling human again, and ready to face the world.
I don't know about you, but I like to start my day with a cup of hot something. Since I had quit coffee to be healthier, I tried experimenting with different teas to start my day. But they just didn't have the same effect as coffee.
Then I took my own advice, and started having a cup of broth in the morning. It was different. It wasn't sweet (I like my coffee and tea with honey/cane sugar/agave). It was more savory than what I was used to. But after a few days, I noticed that I had more energy and that I was less hungry by the time lunch time came around, so I kept at it.
After a few weeks, I noticed that my nails weren't breaking like they had been (doing ranch chores/work is hard on my hands and nails) and that my digestive issues seemed to occur less often. I was also looking forward to my morning cup of broth! I liked how it made me feel!
Even during my travels, I've kept up my morning cup of broth. I love how it makes me feel energized!
But my travel broth cups (which I shared in my last post) only come in chicken, beef and vegetable. So when I'm home, I always make sure that I have lamb stock available so I can enjoy my cup of lamb stock in the morning!
It's so easy to make lamb stock (well, any stock/broth is easy to make really). And it can be used in so many ways, not just for your morning cup of healthiness!
Will you try making your own lamb stock, and enjoying a cup of warm stock in the morning?
