What are some good sources of folate other than leafy greens? Best I can find so far is chicken liver (or duck or other foul). Nice, because I wanted a good excuse to opt for chicken liver over beef liver now and then. I love them both. I... (more)

I've never seen white film on chicken liver until today. When I opened 2 packs of liver from grocery store I noticed something white on the top of each piece. I am not sure what it is, therefore I am in doubt if I should cook them. I hope it's... (more)

I buy the above chicken because it is much more reasonably priced than the ideal, pasture raised chicken. It comes with the liver and I have started saving the bones to make bone broth. Is it worth it to eat the liver and make bone brother with... (more)

There is a newly opened butcher on my way home from work, and ALL their meat is locally sourced, grass fed/pasteured, and I am picking up my first pasteured chicken livers on my way home today! Don't yet know how I am going to fix them, but they... (more)

I made the mistake of following a recipe that involved simmering the livers with aromatics, straining the liquid out, then processing with butter. I felt it was a waste of flavorful liquids (saving it for something at the moment) and will... (more)

I mix prepared horseradish in mine and it makes it so yummy if you like that kind of spicy.

What on earth is in chicken livers to cause an intolerance? I am having great success on paleo (4 weeks in now) and am doing it Leptin Reset style. Have tried chicken livers several times over last few weeks for my BAB and each time end up feeling... (more)

Jeannine, how much liver do you eat at a meal? And are the livers from chickens that roam around and eat bugs, or are the livers from chickens which are fed grains and "mystery foods" and given all sorts of antibiotics and who knows what? I... (more)

Or to put it another way, would I be missing any nutrients by choosing chicken over ruminant liver? Both options would be from local, organic, free range farms. I'm wondering about getting some chicken liver as I understand it's high in vit K2 (is... (more)

I have some cooking in the oven but I am reading both that they are good and that they are bad. Some say it's good to eat them, not to worry too much like for example Marks Daily Apply says this: "Livers from organic, pasture-raised animals are... (more)

I would, and have, ate them. Around here, conventionally farmed chicken livers frequently turn up for less than a dollar a pound (1.25lb tubs of Tyson livers at the 99¢ store, to be exact) and I buy them up and eat them. I do worry just how... (more)

After learning about the benefits of eating beef liver from various Paleo websites, I have been doing that once a week for a few months now. However, the one health food store I have access to that sold non-CAFO beef liver stopped selling it for... (more)

You've probably come across this article by Mark Sission, Does the Liver Store Toxins?, but it's a great overview of the issue you haven't. It would appear in most cases the liver doesn't contain many more toxins than lean muscle meat, and some... (more)

Saute and eat them, or if you don't like the texture, grind or chop them up and mix them with other meat or sausage to eat them. Or throw them in the pot with the carcas to make broth. I don't particularly like the kidneys so I usually eat the... (more)

I would separate them and freeze. It sounds gross but spreading on a baking sheet or using an ice cube tray can help freeze them into portions. A small amount like that can be mixed into entrees, soup, etc. So far my best liver strategies are... (more)

I've started buying chicken livers (organic, from chickens free to roam in pasture but still fed a cereal diet), and I have noticed that the odd liver looks diseased (to my completely amateur eye). The majority of livers are completely smooth and... (more)
