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 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)

I cannot afford Pastured Chicken, so I buy Organic Trader Joe's Chicken. I feel slightly guilty over the factory farming methods, but I still eat the liver if it looks good. (Some are kinda off). I always make bone broth. If you want chicken... (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 saute the livers in a pan with shallots and butter (and other seasonings), then deglaze the pan with wine or vermouth, then throw it all into the food pro. So the deglazing liquid which contains all of those yummy flavors becomes part of the... (more)

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)

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)

Can you post links to the naysayers? I'd like to see what they are saying, because conventional wisdom is to avoid all liver - the opposite of ancestral wisdom or paleo thinking. Grass fed beef liver is the best, nutritionally, and pretty cheap... (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)

Who told you gravy wasn't Paleo!??! Change the verbiage and you've got yourself a thick dense tasty sauce :) Do a slow simmer with all the goodies in stock. Remove when tender and pick the meat off the neck and finely chop the other bits. If... (more)

Grind grind grind your offal into your ground beef for meatloaf/balls - they'll never know and it improves the taste immeasurably! Also, here's a great liverwurst recipe that I use regularly : 1 to 1.5 pounds chicken livers Cook them up for 10... (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)
