I love eating food that reminds me of being a kid… and jello is one of those fun foods that takes me right back to childhood.
Plus, gelatin itself is one of the best foods we can eat to heal our gut! That’s why we recommend eating bone broth so much.
Here’s a few words about gelatin from published work by our friend Dr. Siebecker (1):
To summarize, gelatin (broth) can be considered for use in the following conditions: food allergies, dairy maldigestion, colic, bean maldigestion, meat maldigestion, grain maldigestion, hypochlorhydria, hyperacidity (gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, ulcer, hiatal hernia) inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis), irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, malnutrition, weight loss, muscle wasting, cancer, osteoporosis, calcium deficiency and anemia.
Sound like it might help you?
If you’re like me, you can only tolerate so much bone broth… which is why a nice break in the form of blueberry jello sounds just right. And fortunetly, our friend Angela from Paleokitchenlab.com stopped by to share her amazing jello recipe (YAY, thanks Angela).
Before we dive in, please note this recipe calls for dairy in the form of 24-hour SCD yogurt. I don’t tolerate dairy and I’ve made similar jello by removing the yogurt and it still tastes pretty amazing. So don’t let one ingredient stop you from making your own batch (minus the diary).
