#64 – Better Broths & Healing Tonics

Better Broths and Healing Tonics is a book that blew us away when we found it earlier this year. It is so thorough, so accessible and so creative – sharing many ways to make broths, and make them easy, plus incredible healing recipes for broth tonics, infusions, blends and meals.

In this episode, Andrea interviews half of the pair that created the book, Jill Sheppard Davenport. They talk about healing with nutrition and how Jill, as an experienced practitioner, approaches it. Jill shares her broth tips and tricks and also talks about the revelation to me in the book – sweet broth.

As Jill says early in the episode, “there’s so much healing possible in your kitchen”. Listen into Andrea’s chat with this expert and get playing with broth!

We have a copy of the book to giveaway!! Stay to the end, and we’ll explain how you can win your own copy of Better Broths and Healing Tonics. And if you’re a patreon, check out the treasure trove where you’ll find two of our favourite recipes from the book.
