A PASSION PROJECT
It started with vision. A vision that combined a passion for health and community. Something that would support local agriculture, local businesses and real people in their daily routines. Something that would honor a little island and leave the smallest trace on a big planet. In 2018, this vision became a reality when Kristal Muhich created BONE TO BE WILD. Bone broth is an incredible nutritional tool which supports the immune system, mood and overall health. Bone to Be Wild’s Kauai bone broth is simmered from humanely raised animals with ancestral Hawaiian medicinal herbs and ingredients to create a powerhouse of health in an easily drinkable form. At the forefront of Hawaii's “food as medicine” movement, Kristal has a polished record of economizing high-grade healing products to support the wellness of individual bodies as well as the community at large. During more than 15 years in the health and wellness industry, the creator of Kauai Juice Co. has brought to market dozens of healing, sustainably sourced foods. Bone Broth is her latest and dearest venture to date and it won’t be her final project either! She consistently strives to raise a beautiful Ohana extending from Kauai to all of Hawaii...and the world with healing foods!
ok but wait...WHAT IS BONE BROTH?
Bone broth is a silky, salubrious brew that offers the body a bounty of benefits. The difference between bone broth and regular broth is a longer cooking time, which draws out the collagen and minerals in the bones and tissues into the stock
Bone broth is an easy, delicious way to add a whole food supplement to your diet and provide so many different benefits to your body. The calcium, magnesium, potassium and phosphorus from the bones support the health of your immune system and digestive system, while also increasing your bone strength! The gelatin in bone broth enhances your gut health and the anti-inflammatory amino acid, glycine, fends off fatigue by stabilizing your blood sugar levels and regulating sleep hormones. Additionally, the collagen in bone broth not only supports and strengthens your joints, it also boosts the skin’s elasticity and helps diminish fine lines. This is really just the beginning of the plethora of reasons we LOVE bone broth!
HOW DO I DRINK IT?
Bone broth can be sipped from a cup or bowl. Try substituting bone broth for water the next time you simmer a pot of your favorite grains. Additionally, there are all kinds of great recipes out there. You can even freeze it in ice cube trays for up to a year and toss a cube in a smoothie.
Wait back up, add to smoothies? Like fruit smoothies? Yes! It actually does not compromise the flavor of your smoothie, but it does add tons of beneficial nutrients, like calcium, magnesium, potassium, and phosphorus. Not to mention, the loads of collagen and glucosamine can help keep cartilage healthy and joint pain at bay.
Our favorite way to drink it is on an empty stomach, as a sipping broth in between meals to keep your blood sugar levels stable and your energy high! For those who like to fast in the morning but also work out, it’s a great late breakfast to hold you over until lunch! The Broth contains and efficiently delivers high amounts of easily absorbable protein directly into your system to make you feel great. Try adding a dash of chili pepper water and pink salt for a full flavor effect.
BONE TO BE WILD offers the most medicinal bone broth Kauai has available. In comparison to other broths on the market, BONE TO BE WILD has a very high concentration of all the beneficial nutrients. It is a great source of protein, low in carbs and not to mention...delicious! The broth is simmered for 48 hours to ensure every last mineral and nutrient from the bones and connective tissue dissolves into the liquid creating more than a pound of organic, humanely raised ingredients in every 16 ounce cup!
All of the herbs are locally and organically grown by farmers whom we love and respect. The chicken is organic and free range and all of the beef is sourced from Wailua Meat Co on the east-side of Kauai. This-80-year-old spacious pastureland is nestled on the dewy slopes of Kauai’s iconic Sleeping Giant mountain and home to a lovingly cared for family of cattle. Across 1,326 acres, the farm’s 500 cows are humanely raised under the heed of expert ranchers. The beef is grass fed and grass finished with no hormones, antibiotics or any other weird stuff we can’t pronounce, making it easy for us to love and trust!
