Nourishing, healing and delicious, but did you know bone broth, served chilled can also serve as the perfect recovery drink after a long workout? If you've already transitioned yourself into a fat-burning machine, why insult the temple that is your body with a sugar surge found in all too many recovery drinks? Serve it on ice and enjoy it after a long session in the saddle or on the trail!
