Contrary to popular belief, the liver is not a storage facility for toxic waste in humans and animals. When we consume liver from grass fed, naturally raised pastured animals, the liver acts the way nature intended: as a filter.
The liver will only store toxins if it is sluggish or overwhelmed, such as in sick conventionally raised animals in confinement.
Liver is a great food for those needing to build or re-build, such as pregnant and postpartum women. It is an excellent source of easily assimilatable iron, Vit.A and Vit.D.
It provides the raw materials we need to boost the health and resiliency of our own liver…..something that many of us need with the onslaught of toxic chemicals in the environment and the prevalence of digestive issues.
In addition, special attention should be paid to the liver in adults or children who were never breastfed….or not for very long.
Enjoy this recipe! I am amazed that liver can taste well….. not like liver!
