Did you know that liver is a powerhouse superfood? It’s rich in fat-soluble vitamins, B vitamins, folate, amino acids, iron and other minerals. It also makes ya feel great due its “anti-fatigue” factor (read: gives you wings!)
Problem is, many folks–myself included–just plain don’t like liver or can’t stomach it. But the organ meats are the most nutrient dense parts of the animal, and it’s also important to use the whole animal. So in an effort to get you to eat more liver, I’ve compiled some of my favorite “sneaky” liver recipes. This isn’t your run of the mill liver and onions. I specifically chose recipes that mask the strong liver flavor so you can sneak liver into your diet and reap the benefits without grossing yourself out.
Aim to include liver at least once weekly–if not several times per week. The liver shooters and sneaky smoothies are great for including small amounts of liver daily.
