    Bone broth

    Primal Fuel
    Is bone broth a good way to get quick protein after a workout? What all exactly- proteins, fats, etc., are in bone broth?

    Good question. This is the best answer I could find: What is the nutrient analysis of bone broth? - Paleohacks

    I don't think there's a consistent output in homemade bone broth. Each sessions going to have variables that aren't tightly controlled, and probably a few that can't be.

    different animals, cook time and method, other ingredients all will cause varying results. i use broth as a source for trace minerals and gelatin and do not think of it as a protein source. quick protein after a work-out can be some hard-cooked eggs.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    Yeah, in particular, this study on lead in home made broth freaked me out: The risk of lead contamination in bone broth ... [Med Hypotheses. 2013] - PubMed - NCBI

    This is what messes me up ALL the time.
    For every study that says DO there's one that says DON'T.

    Bone broth will have fat... which will slow down digestion after workouts.... but I mean, not everybody take post workout nutrition that seriously. For me, just getting protein in after workouts is good enough.

    Regular chicken bones vs grassfed beef bones aren't the same.

    I always avoided chicken bones for bone broth anyway due to the potential arsenic.

    Bones from grocery store meats that aren't USDA grass fed - I don't use them. I don't trust them.

    Bones from chickens that are primarily fed grass and bugs with a supplement of grain/feed - I use them occasionally.

    Wild pig bones, grass fed bison bones, grass fed beef bones, pasture based lamb or goat bones from farmers I trust, - I use them and pressure cook the snot out of them.
