The Bone Broth Diet

I’ve sidestepped the raw / vegan debate all these years and watched these fads with a long-range view. Very frankly, I’ve eaten 60%+ raw, and 95%+ vegetarian, vegan for 20 years. Even my recipes tend to be 99% vegan. I figure you KNOW how to cook meat, but the habit of eating raw plants is…
