 Jeanette Hyde -

Author of 'The Gut Makeover'


Please tell us a bit about yourself

I’m a nutritional therapist and author of The Gut Makeover and The Gut Makeover Recipe Book, which have been at the forefront of the gut health revolution. I work with patients in private practice on gut health, and run workshops and retreats to help people develop healthy gut for long-term overall health and happiness.

And I love cooking and eating!


What are you currently working on?

Putting together a secret PhD proposal, and working on a randomised control trial designing a gut-friendly diet for children with ADHD with St Mary’s University in London.

I’m developing more workshops and retreats, I love working with women in groups, they can be very powerful for motivation and learning new ways to take care of ourselves. They are selling out quicker than I can provide them and there is only one of me!


Are you familiar with bone broth?

Of course!  Only use the real stuff. Use every feeding occasion as a chance to feed your body nourishing food, rather than impoverished impressions of foods which is what many stock cubes are.


Do you ever make your own stocks/broths? If so how do you find it?

I use an electric pressure cooker to make my own – no chicken carcass ever goes in the bin. New, safe, pressure cookers mean you can make them in a couple of hours without stinking up the whole house. I boil the bones till they crumble between your fingers and release all the powerful minerals into the water.


How did you find cooking with our broths?

Very handy.

Do you ever use a cheeky stock cube?


Would you consider using this regularly?

Yes – I like the portability of the sachets and you could empty one into a cup and heat in a microwave then add a teaspoon of miso as a great afternoon pick-me-up. See my Gut-vril

Did using broth make a difference to the taste and/or texture of your food?

See my recipe for German Potato Salad –  the broth soaks into the potatoes and make them taste absolutely delicious. Makes a lovely change, and much healthier than processed mayos.

Obviously it's only a short time that you may have consumed our broth but there is some evidence to say it has anti-inflammatory properties, can aid sleep, digestion and collagen levels. Did you feel better for consuming it? Sleep better? Improvement in skin? Digestion? Please elaborate if so.

I haven’t had a cold in years – and bone broths are a staple of those years. Good gut health, sleep, and skin are impacted by a concert of factors (stress, overall diet whether processed or unprocessed, variety of vegetables etc) but bone broths are definitely a key part of staying healthy for me

Which was your favourite flavour and why?

The beef broth – I make my own chicken stock a lot, but don’t usually have beef bones around, so having the sachets has been really useful.
