    How many chickens to you need to make the bone broth? Since you are only using the neck and feet? Do you fry then simmer the whole chicken first? I’m so confused.

    I’d love to make this for my niece for Christmas dinner however she is lactose, fructose, and starch intolerant. What substitutions can I make for the butter and ghee and is coconut flour starch free? Thanks in advance!

    This looks like a good immune booster too, with the garlic, herbs and bone broth. Added bonus-this is a gluten free, grain free option to traditional meatballs. So excited to try this recipe!

    Love your recipes! I’d enjoy seeing the calorie count though. For those of us that keep track with sites like MyFitnessPal, it would make it a whole lot easier.

    Read “The Wahl’s Protocol” Doctor who wrote this healed herself of MS by eating the right kind of healthy food. A great book even if you can’t follow completely.

    Hi, I have MS for 17 years. I use a walker and scooter. i have been exercise almost everyday. My goal is that I want to have a good muscle and strengthen for my body. Let me know what I should or should not eat. I would be happy if anything helps me with muscle grow and strengthen. My goal is that I want to get my feet back on! I want to walk instead of using a walker and scooter.

    Many Thanks
