Mastering Homemade Chicken Stock + Detox Tip

Confession: I love homemade chicken stock (broth). Growing up, my Nonna (grandma) would make us soup made from  homemade broth and little star pasta. Sometimes it had pieces of chicken, leftover from making the broth, or sliced up carrots from the pot. Other times, we'd sprinkle Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese in the broth for an added punch of flavour. In our family this "soup" cured everything: the flu, a common cold, tummy aches, a cold rainy day. You name it, soup was the answer.

So it's been my mission to try and master my Nonna's chicken stock recipe and I have finally, after years and years of trying, found my groove and let me tell you, it's making this whole healthy and fit lifestyle I've tried to covet a lot easier. There's nothing more comforting than a mug of hot chicken broth to get you through the evening when you're out of calories for the day. Or if you're like me, trying to detox after a night of eating nacho's!

While I don't have the recipe written out, I used a few recipes from Pinterest to guide me and I made modifications.
