It’s been around for a while, but there’s been a spotlight on bone broth over the past few years (and with good reason). The nutritional superpowers of bone broth come from the gelatin and minerals that are extracted from the bones during the cooking process. Gelatin is a key component of connective tissue and aids various kinds of healing in the body. It’s formed via the collagen in the tendons and ligaments in the bones when heat is applied. In addition to gelatin, there’s a wide range of minerals that are filtered from the bones and marrow such as calcium, magnesium and potassium. This article containing tips for making top-notch bone broth sits proudly in third place – Read on.

Konjac noodles, we meet again… This article continues to pop up in our online analytics, so we weren’t surprised when we saw it appear once again in our most-read articles of the year! Konjac is a root vegetable that has been consumed throughout Asia for centuries. When made into pasta, no grains are added and they contain no sugar – perfect for any pasta lovers wanting to go grain or sugar-free. Previously, konjac products were only stocked in Asian grocers, however, they’ve slowly but surely made their way into Aussie supermarket chains (where they’ve been flying off the shelves). The question is, do these low-calorie pasta/noodle alternatives hold any nutritional value? This investigation into the highs and lows of konjac noodles sits proudly in second place – Read on.

Taking out first place in our most-read article race is this piece on the topic of men and breastfeeding. Sorry, what? It’s true! Although rare, there are historical records of men breastfeeding their infants, usually when the mother was unable to because of illness or death – One of the earliest mentions comes from the Talmud (published around the year 200 CE in Israel), which describes a man who nursed his infant after his wife's death during childbirth. How is this possible? Find out by reading our most popular article of the year.
