On Thursday I am getting a whole chicken from a local farm.. I'm going to roast it in the slow-cooker, then I'll simmer the bones for homemade stock. I make my own stock this way to get the benefits of the minerals from the bones... I use the stock for soups, chilis, and curries throughout the week; it’s supposed to be as good for your joints as glucosamine and condroitin supplements, plus it is much more yummy than store-bought stock. I feel like it really helps me recover after a hard run.
