Avoid Food Waste During The Holidays (Or Anytime) With My “Kitchen Sink” Bone Broth Concoction
View this post on Instagram
I do everything I can to avoid food waste throughout the year. And of course, Thanksgiving meals can be rife with tons of food getting tossed into the trash.
So each year, I instead gather all the leftovers and make a giant pot of what I call my “Kitchen Sink” bone broth, since it really does use just about every ingredient I can find after the Thanksgiving meal.
What better way to use your leftovers than for concocting the perfect anti-aging, immune-boosting, gut-healing elixir that is equally nutritious and delicious?
Check out the original recipe from my Boundless Cookbook, which I like to consider your roadmap to keep your cells nourished, taste buds pleased, and body charged with healthy energy. The total time to make is anywhere from 6 to 24 hours with a slow cooker.
• 1 roasted turkey carcass and bones
• 1 large carrot
• 1 onion
• 2 celery stalks
• 3 bay leaves
• 3 garlic cloves
• 2 large thyme springs
• 3 quarts of filtered water
• 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
• A splash of leftover beer or wine
• Add all ingredients into a large slow cooker.
• Bring to a boil on high, and then simmer anywhere from 6 hours or up to a day or longer. (The longer you simmer, the more flavor “evolves” giving you quite the tasty brew.)
• You can store any leftovers in a large glass mason jar or BPA-free, freezer-safe container.
Not only can you minimize food waste with this broth, you can also help counteract those inevitable unhealthy holiday indulgences. Enjoy!
My New Parenting Book Is Available To Pre-Order Now
It's officially done.
That is, I just put the finishing touches on my brand new parenting book – which covers and decodes everything from education to baby nutrition to discipline to legacy to finances to college and much, much more!
It's called…drumroll please…
Boundless Parenting: Tools, Tactics & Habits of Great Parents.
This book isn't just written by me and my superstar wife Jessa. Rather, I put together a dream list of amazing and inspirational parents who I admire and asked them to share their best-of-the-best tools, tactics and habits for raising incredible children in this modern world.
Part of my motivation to create this anthology of parenting wisdom was my own wish to know “all the answers” before I became a parent. I would have loved to have had the perfect parenting blueprint. Unfortunately, when Jessa and I were young parents, there was no step-by-step instruction guide that existed for how to raise impactful, happy, and fulfilled young humans – so we, along with most parents, walked into this life-altering journey without a blueprint.
But now it exists. Why try to go on this parenting journey alone and make time-wasting and life-changing mistakes when parents who have come before you can share with you all their insider secrets?
So now Boundless Parenting is here…I couldn't be more excited, and guess what? Pre-orders are LIVE right now! Head over to BoundlessParentingBook.com to learn more and sign-up for pre-order notifications.

::: One Of My Favorite Products For Reaping The Benefits Of Grounding :::
I’ve used plenty of grounding products before.
Also called earthing, this is one of the top biohacks that I swear by for improvements in things like sleep, pain & stiffness, depression and anxiety, fatigue, metabolism, wound healing, and much more.
In fact, over 20 peer-reviewed studies have been published detailing the extensive health benefits of grounding using indoor grounding devices just like this one from my friends over at Ultimate Longevity.
After just four nights of sleeping grounded, those participants reported an impressive reduction of inflammation. In another separate case, an 84-year-old woman with an eight-month-old open wound experienced dramatically accelerated healing within just two weeks of grounding.
This stuff is the real deal.
I typically like to use the Ultimate Longevity sleeping mat when I travel. I also use the universal mat under my standing workstation and noticed a profound improvement in sleep, elimination of jet lag, and an uptick in energy while working.

Asking A Quick Favor About My New Book Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits For Spiritual Stamina
I just wanted to quickly thank all of you who ordered a copy of my new book, Endure: Tools, Tactics & Habits for Spiritual Stamina.
