Bone To Be Wild – Kauai's new Bone Broth Company

 

Last month I was able to visit Bone To Be Wild’s new location in Kapa’a right on the main road. When you are in traffic it’s the yellow building with this awesome sign. Kristal (the owner) took me on a quick tour and we talked about her new endeavor into the Bone broth world.

Have you heard of the benefits of bone broth? You can read all of this on their website www.bonetobewildkauai.com but let me quote it for you here:
“Bone broth is an ancient, healing tradition that has been used across nearly all cultures for thousands of years. Animal or fish bones are simmered slowly with vegetables, herbs, and spices for several days, until the bones become soft. As these bones break-down,important nutrients and minerals are released. Bones are rich in calcium, magnesium, and potassium. They also contain high levels of the amino acids glutamine, glycine, and proline, which are the building blocks of protein–what our cells, muscles, and tissues are made of. Drinking these compounds stimulates healing of the body from the insidious. Bone broth also contains highly bioavailable collagen, which can help your body repair and strengthen its own tissues, tendons, and ligaments.”
Wow. I figured that would be the case but Bone to be Wild did a great job researching it and putting together.

So when you first get to the counter you are greeted with the most well-informed person about Bone broth. When I was there a visitor from Canada stopped in and asked a million questions. All easily handled with intuitive knowledge.
The bone broth is put together by Chef Adam Watten and they source 100% of the grass-fed beef bones from Wailua Meat Co. Just aside, I love Wailua Meat Co. They use local, organically grown vegetables, herbs, and spices that have been specially procured from farmers all around of Kauai. Then they use a housemade, small-batch kombucha vinegar that helps assimilate nutrients and provide healthy bacteria. They simmer the broth for a minimum of 48 hours.
So I ordered a broth and was mind-blown. They explained that this is perfect for people on a Keto-Diet, or doing a weight loss program that allows you to have meat. They also explain that its a great breakfast replacer since you get all the nutrients you need to start the day and is also great for after an injury. 
You get to choose all these add-ons which just makes the flavor pop out even more. The broth was quite tasty. Definitely a full-body taste, as if you just taken a big bite out of a steak but minus all the chewing. With the combination of all the vegetables and herbs after finishing my 8oz glass I definitely felt full. 
The best part of it after a couple of hours I still felt satisfied but light as a feather. It was as if I had a full meal minus to food coma effect. Anyways, it was so yummy and tasty that I highly recommend you checking them out. You can order online at their website and they send you a frozen version that lasts about 5-7 days. I just did their Gut Cleanse utilizing Bone to be Wild and Kauai Juice Co.
