Saturday, July 13th, 2019. Manhattan is in absolute darkness because of a power outage. I am sitting with a flush light and candles writing this post. How crazy is it?
You might ask, “What is a power outage in Manhattan, New York has to do with the best brand bone broth?”
Trust me – a lot!
Anyone remember the horrible and prolong Northeast blackout on August 14th, 2003?
That evening my friends and I were sitting on the balcony of my apartment on the 37th floor, sipping wine and getting crackers. Why crackers?
I canceled my birthday party restaurant reservation. Yes! August 14th was my birthday!
Today, over fifteen years later, again – the constant sound of sirens and part of Manhattan is off the grid. If it lasts longer than a few hours, all food in refrigerators will go to waste.
1. Bone Broth. Wise Emergency Food Supplies?
Imagine – your refrigerator and your freezer are out. There is no food, and it is summer. You cannot “hang” your plastic bag with some goodies outside your window.
What are you going to do?
O, and you cannot go to the local store or a restaurant because their refrigerators are not a big help either!
How about if you have kids or a sick person?
How long will you last on crackers? Will you be giving them the canned soup with 30% sodium and tons of crappy stuff in it?
Instead, would you like to have in your “emergency reserve” delicious and nutritious broth which doesn’t require a freezer?
And not just a broth but the one made from the marrow bones combined with organic vegetables and filtered water?
The only one thing you should do is to open the package and simmer the broth for a few minutes.
Lunch is ready!
After that blackout, we had quite a few “dark” days. And that bone broth served my loved ones dietary needs when we had no power.
We didn’t compromise our health with salty junk food. We drank bone broth and nourished our bodies with everything this golden drink has to offer – minerals, protein, amino acids, and other good stuff. Luckily, I stocked up!
What was the brand?
Kettle & Fire!
I wish it was available back in 2003.
2. Kettle and Fire Bone Broth Review
I started drinking and cooking with bone broth a few years ago as my oncologist suggested.
I needed badly to rebuild myself – boost Immune system, restore nutrients level, inject energy into my overly exhausted body, build my muscles from scratch, regulate circulatory system, restore the balance between all body’s functions and, of course, DETOX!
So, I began my very demanding rehabilitation.
One day, in a “drip room”—a medical facility where different IV protocols are administered—somebody mentioned the name “Kettle & Fire.”
I was curious. I tried, and it was love at first sight.
Well, let’s put Kettle & Fire on fire!
First, what is Kettle & Fire broth made from?
I checked all ingredients inside out, leaving nothing to chance.
Kettle & Fire beef bone broth. It’s not just bone broth. It is made from marrow bones of 100% certified grass-fed beef. Why marrow?
It provides a higher level of collagen with most amino acids and nutrients. So, you should appreciate when knuckles and feet bones are in your broth. And now you know why.
But these are also bones of grass-finished beef. What does it mean?
Grass-fed beef doesn’t mean that cows have been eating grass all their lives. It is either a grain-finished diet or grass-finished diet.
So, if you see grass-fed on a label, it also can be grain-finished.
Kettle & Fire chicken bone broth. If you drink it, rest assured it is from organic chicken bones and feet.
Yes! Those scary feet I saw when my mom was cooking the bone broth. She always reminded me, “The beauty is the chicken feet.”
Again, the trick is COLLAGEN. My mom got her first wrinkle at 51!
What else is the pot?
Organic celery, onion, bell pepper, onions, carrots, garlic, scallions and herbs—parsley, rosemary, and thyme.
Apple cider vinegar is a must to pull out as much good stuff out of the bones as possible. And the simmering process can take over 20 hours for the bones to release all nutrients.
Well, when sipping Kettle & Fire broth, you are a happy customer.
Some people might think bone broth is tasteless. WRONG!
I bet they didn’t try Kettle & Fire. Their broth has different flavors depending on ingredients.
Do you like a mild or nattier feel?
Kettle & Fire has everything for everybody.
Beef bone broth has a mild flavor and is my FAVORITE for cooking and adding in smoothies. It does not overpower the taste of my greens or whatever I put in the dishes. Yummy!
If I want just a broth tea, I love to sip their chicken broth or chicken and mushroom. It has more “character” and zest. It is perfect on its own. I love drinking it, especially during long commuting hours.
There are tons of other options—butternut squash, tomato soup, chipotle beef, ginger and lemongrass beef, coconut curry and lime chicken, turmeric ginger. Wow!
→ TAKEAWAY: No matter how demanding you are, “the nose knows!” There is everything here for your nose and your sipping pleasure.
3. Bone Broth Nutrition Data
Have you ever made a bone broth?
Since preparing a homemade bone broth is very time-consuming, I make it only occasionally. On average, I buy my broth and, of course, from Kettle & Fire.
Now, let’s look at nutrition data—beef bone broth nutritional facts and chicken bone broth nutritional facts.
Beef Bone Broth Nutritional Facts
