​The Benefits of Bone Broth

January 15, 2018   |   By Meredith Hendricks, RPM Manager MetroWest

Super old school. Bone broth goes back to kings and queens; it was a staple at meal times and was a way to prevent food waste. Included in the stocks were bones, hooves, knuckles, carcasses and tough meats to name a few. Broth is a staple all over the world but had been lost in American culture. Recently however, bone broth has been gaining popularity in the U.S., particularly with health conscious individuals who recognize the many health benefits of the dish.

 

Over the summer I visited our local community organic farm where they have organically- farmed animal ingredients for visitors to buy and take home. I asked if they had anything to make bone broth and a lovely gentleman brought me out organic chicken feet, “These will give you the most nutrients out of all the parts we have." He’s right. The feet are bones and tendons and no muscle which means these body parts are loaded with collagen and gelatin. When broth cools it turns into gelatin. This gelatin contains arginine and glycine which are amino acids (a.k.a. proteins) that have been shown to improve exercise performance and recovery, and has been used to help treat multiple diseases and cancer.

 

Broths contain minerals that are easy to digest and absorb; calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, trace minerals. It provides chondroitin and glucosamine- stuff that we PAY top dollar for! What about your gut- how does it heal gut symptoms? Bone broth has the ability to hold liquids in your gut which attracts digestive juices to help break food down for better absorption.

 

Click the link to the right to get my recipe/method for making chicken bone broth. Everyone has the flexibility to flavor their broth however they would like- and i do recommend you add flavors. I also used glass/ceramic containers with metal pots and utensils to avoid plastic leaching into the organic broth (but this is my own personal preference).

​Training vs. Working Out

February 2, 2017   |   By Thaddeus Babiec, RPM Director of Methodology

Simon Sinek gave a TED Talk back in 2010 explaining why some companies or people or organizations are more successful than others. His premise was that there is something fundamentally different about the approach these different groups took when taking a product to market or promoting themselves or their ideas to others. He said that the most successful groups all, beyond knowing what they are doing and how they are doing it (ex: Apple makes computers and phones by ordering parts, assembling these parts, programming, etc...) these highly successful groups also know why they are doing it. This idea has stuck with me ever since I first watched his talk and i believe it goes well with this idea of training vs. working out. 

 

When an athlete or a person is training, they have a goal in mind, something to focus their efforts towards, a "why". What sets a great athlete apart from a good athlete is the focus of the effort towards the goal. Every training session, every recovery session, every meal, every decision is taking them one step closer towards their goal. Anyone can come into a gym, sweat a lot for an hour, burn a ton of calories, do a great workout, and that's great, but then what? Did that workout make you better or did it just put you at a caloric deficit for tonight's big dinner? 

 

I am not trying to say that working out like that is bad; you're in the gym and that's great, but again, to what end? Those cardio kings and queens and circuit training fiends, they come in everyday and do the same thing everyday to the point of monotony. Your body has adapted already, change it up, try something new, have a plan!  A plan that extends beyond what you will do today or tomorrow but one that will look weeks and months out. Have a concrete goal, a "why." If what you are doing is working towards that, great, if not, maybe it's time to reconsider your method. Think of your body is a piece of marble or an engine ready to be built, without final drawing or instructions, how can you bring out the sculpture or put all the pieces together into something that works the way you need it?
