Drinking Broth Recipe

I love homemade chicken broth. I add it to soups, gravies, vegetables, rice, and really anything else that is simmering in my kitchen. Chicken broth does not only make all our food burst with flavor but it is extremely nutritious and healing. However, when it comes to drinking straight chicken broth, I am not a fan.

Maybe you have noticed that most modern education is designed primarily to produce passive consumerist serfs, and are looking for a way to break free from this pattern of cultural disintegration and instead, broaden the horizons of your mind and soul.
