How to Make Fish Bone Broth in 45 Minutes
Hi Sweet Friends,
Today, I’m sharing a Fish Bone Broth Recipe that is iodine rich for good thyroid health and can be ready in 45 minutes! Fish Bone Broth is the queen of bone broths because it is not only rich in iodine, it’s rich in collagen too, which supports good gut health.
Fish Bone Broth is so inexpensive to make because you are using fish bones and fish heads that you should be able to buy for less than $2.00 per pound. So this is one bone broth you really should add to your culinary repertoire!
