How does this work?

I made the leap from small-business reporter to small-business owner to pursue my passion for real, nutritious and sustainable food. I'm obsessed with finding innovative ways to make healthy, whole food fast and convenient with no compromise. Specialties include channel strategy, cash flow management, budgeting, and operations management.

HarperCollins Publishers

Co-Author of The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook

From the founders of Bare Bones Broth Company, 125 delicious recipes for making and cooking with the latest food trend that's taking the culinary and wellness communities by storm: bone broth. Bone broth is one of mankind's oldest foods—and healthiest, boasting one of the most complete nutritional profiles of any food on earth. The collagen, bone, skin, marrow, and fat that is extracted when animal bones simmer in water for hours (or days) are the building blocks of life, containing proteins that help to combat inflammation; boost immunity; strengthen bones; improve hair, skin, and nails; and help a host of digestive issues by promoting optimum gut health. In The Bare Bones Broth Cookbook, Kate and Ryan Harvey, founders of the artisanal broth manufacturer, Bare Bones Broth Co., show readers how simple, inexpensive, and delicious it is to make their own nutrient-rich broth at home.
