Bone Broth Part 2 I no longer bring broth to a full boil. I let it rise to a simmer and then simmer for eight to 24 hours. I rarely simmer over 16 hours. I also now cook it in a large covered Visions glass pot on the stove to reduce contaminants from the crock pot. The broth does not cook down much when using a Visions glass pot.

Anyone who has been reading my blog knows
that I enjoy a good experiment on myself, whether it is intended or not. In Born
to Run, Christopher McDougall states that people’s feet shrink after
wearing Vibrams for a period of time. Many people experience feet that increase
in size as they age. This is due to shoes, which prevent us from really using
our foot muscles, causing our feet to spread out and increase in size. People
who go barefoot a lot or use Vibrams are reported to have shrinking feet because
foot muscles are strengthening and tightening things up.
When I was 20, I wore a size 8, which became
an 8.5 by my late 20s and a 9 in my early 30s. Wanting to test McDougall’s
statement, and spurred on by my father who doesn’t believe that the foot can
shrink as McDougall describes, I tried on a favorite old pair of loafers I haven’t
been able to wear for about 8 years. The shoes used to barely fit and the fit
was very uncomfortable. I know, I should
have thrown them away, but I just didn’t want to. This morning I tried them on
for the first time in years and years, and while they are the tiniest bit snug,
they are wearable. I am glad I saved them, as they are a great measure of
change. I will try them on again in another couple of months and see if the
snugness goes away.
Now for the calves. The day after my 3 mile
trial run my calves are a bit sore. Running barefoot or in Vibrams is a whole different
way of running. Steps are shorter and the foot strike is more focused on the
ball of the foot, which somehow translates into working the calf muscles. I may
try a mid-week run and see if that helps me to be loose.
