Just Jenno meets Broya
I was doing some work online and came across an advertisement for the Broya Bone Broth. Like many people during the pandemic I was looking for ways improve my family's health and wellness through nutrition and exercise. I had heard many people talk about the benefits of bone broth over the years so I decided now is a great time to try it.
So, I decided to place my very first order with this Canadian company to purchase their variety pack so that I could try them all!
I should add that the customer service was amazing from the time I placed the order until the time it was delivered. I was eager to try their bone broth.
Each Sunday, I try plan out and prepare our family's meals for the week ahead or even make large batch meals for the month ahead. This often involves taking inventory in the pantry, freezer, and fridge to determine what else I can use or need to buy. So as a family we took a vote and decided on making Shepherd's pie with my new Broya bone broth in mind.
I am not sure about you, but Shepherd's pie is one of our family's fall favourite comfort foods. You know the kind of food that keeps you warm and full as the weather begins to cool down and the leaves begin to fall. If you wish to give the recipe using bone broth a try I have shared the recipe here.
