Do you really like chicken broth?

So do you? It seems like the perfect thing to have on a DD but it tastes so yucky to me. First I tried Swanson (I think it was low sodium) and I added some salt to it just to be able to get it down. Ick.

Then I searched around here and found that a few people prefer the Pacific organic chicken broth, so I got that. I usually buy their vegetable broth for recipes. I don't really like that chicken broth either.

I am going to try their vegetable broth (never had it straight / plain). And also the Knorrs vegetable that someone on here mentioned. To be continued...

So ... do you like it? What's YOUR favorite?

I usually buy organic chicken broth from Central Market (they are only in TX). I think it tastes great and there's no msg. I add Morton's lite salt and sometimes an egg for egg drop soup.

Broth also comes in handy if I'm trying to get in more calories on an UD but don't feel like eating another snack. Adding melted butter or hwc to broth makes it easy to get in another 100-200 calories.

I just use the little cubes dissolved in a mug of hot water. And I like it but I do NOT like drinking canned broth.

Better than Bouillon Chicken Base makes a much better broth than anything canned, in my experience.

I use Better than Bouillon Chicken and B.T.B Beef. The beef is only 10 calories a serving. The chicken is 15. I enjoy it.

I like the cubes or powder. It's the salt, I think, that makes it good to me. That said, I don't eat too much of it. I think I've gotten past my need for something like that to keep me satisfied on DDs (most DDs anyway).

I agree!
I've tried both the chicken and beef.
I have a preference for the chicken.

Me to, past the broth needing stage, but it was a huge help during my low dds/when I was actively trying to lose weight. I just used Meijer store brand organic broth and added a splash of hot sauce.

I like the better than boullion, but not the last bit because the stuff never seems to dissolve completely.

Also, there's a thread about this somewhere...adding Salsa Con Queso (SCQ) to your broth really makes it tasty too. Store brand is fine. I think one T is 10 cals.

Wyler's cubes, 5 calories for either chicken or beef, and it's yummy. I rarely have it these days, but loved it in the early days with a serrano pepper (2 calories) sliced thinly in it. Super spicy!

I guess I am in the minority since I still drink broth every DD.

Adi, every time I heat some on the stove at work, people say, "That smells so good!" I haven't had any in over a week though. I need to start drinking it again, because I'm eating instead.

Another vote for Better than Bouillon! BUT I rarely have it because I would normally want it on DDs, and because I'm sodium-sensitive on the scale and it tends to make me retain water, I'd usually rather skip it.

I got tired of chicken broth, if I use it, I use powder. Sometimes I mix tomato powder in it if I'm having a mug. My favorite is a concentrate cube I found in the Hispanic section called Cons-Mate, a blend of tomato and chicken.

I need extra sodium due to very low BP. The broth helps up my sodium for the day and I'm usually freezing so it warms me up, but I probably only have it 1-2 times per week now. I also like miso soup. The paste I have is 25 calories per mug. I haven't been as freezing since the last couple days got into the 60's!

Canned - yucky to drink straight.
I like cubes, powder & paste. Love it straight or on taters. Will often make a mug, use it for taters & drink the rest. I am also a salt fiend so the sodium doesn't bother me.

The miso soup that you guys use -- the one I saw at the store (Thai Kitchen) - it's $2.49 for one serving.

Is that right?

The only broth I can really just drink is homemade broth. Its really worth it to take a Saturday, pile the bones and veggies into a stock pot or crock pot and let them boil for a few hours. It actually isnt much real work, because you dont have to carefully chop anything.

If I take Kitchen Basics broth, and add a little garlic powder, black pepper, and squeeze of lemon juice its reasonably good.

The way to make your storebought stock taste really good is to boil some veggies in it. (the classic mix is carrots, celery, and onion) Or if you have any left over chicken bones..... even just the remainders of a rotisserie chicken breast.... and boil it in the stock for about 15 min, it will give a MUCH better flavor! I'm sure boiling veggies or bones adds a little bit of calories, but it cant be much.

Something else that wasnt bad - but was pretty salty - was using those liquid concentrated chicken stock packets. An example would be "Swanson flavor boost", but there are other brands. They are found next to the canned and boxed broths.


PS do you like V8 or Tomato juice? that can be a pretty low cal alternative. You can warm it up too.

I also make my own bone broth. Like most have mentioned, I kind of outgrew drinking broth on DD. But, I make soup a lot and use the broth for that and/or cooking. I have been on a real soup kick lately for both DD and UD. Soups are easy, low calorie, lots of veggies and with homemade you can control the ingredients, sodium, calories, etc. This week I had taco soup, potato soup, chili and vegetable soup. The vegetable was canned but everything else homemade; then, after I ate the canned I remembered I had some homemade veggie soup in the freezer.

I have plenty of homemade turkey broth in the freezer but I prefer the convenience of the cubes. I keep a jar at work which is where I consume most of my broth.
It just depends on your preference but plain canned is not a choice I will make.
Maybe it is the salt that satisfies me but a cup of broth made with one cube eliminates my hunger for several hours.

I don't care for the homemade broth. It seems to have a funky taste, to me. I've added herbs and everything, still made me gag. I can drink the boxed broth, or BTB fine.

I don't care for it plain either. I make it to use for soup base when I make veggie soup during the winter. My Thanksgiving and Christmas turkey remains make enough broth to last me a year. I just freeze in Dannon qt yogurt containers.
And I gagged on the bone broth and DH wouldn't even try it the second time and he has been known to eat just about everything.
Kudos to those that like or love bone broth. Even the yard dog sniffed at it a long time before he drank it.
So high sodium Wyler cubes are my first choice. I found a broth base by Orrington Farms that is O.K. Never found Better than Bouillon locally. I love a mug of hot broth to calm my hungries when I really don't need to eat even on an UD.

I get mine at an Asian market (H-Mart) and I get 8 servings for less than 2.49, so that sounds too expensive. Kikomann is 3 packets per bag and may cost about 2.50, but it's not as good as the paste imo.

I've never eaten miso but would love to try it. Dr Oz recommends one low sodium miso a day, what brand should I get that's not real expensive? I would have to order it as we have no Asian market. ty

The brand I use is not in English so I can't type it for you.
