You might be surprised to see a blog post about animal meat. Quite honestly, this post is more about avoiding waste than anything. For those who have been following me, you know I have adopted a "flexitarian" position when it comes to health and wellness. In short, flexitarian simply means inclusivity and allowing your body to guide you in choosing the best foods for your body. Even this idea can be a bit confusing, as many of us, evidenced by the growing number of diseases manifesting in our collective bodies, we are not as in tune with ourselves as may think. In many cases, being out of synch with our bodies, which sometimes governs our food and life choices, has the potential to lead us into a state of DIS-ease and suffering. Yet, that is different post for another day.
If you have chosen to include a turkey, quail, chicken, or any poultry meat, then consider repurposing the bones for an alternative. This Kitchen Klip will show you a few example of how to do just that.
I hope you had a wonderful time celebrating life and family this Thanksgiving season.
To your health,
