Always take your turmeric with black pepper. I honestly would not worry too much about turmeric and hepatotoxicity. But if you're worried about it, take magnesium. Magnesium is good for the liver AND improves digestion and pooping.

I think it depends on you definition of "paleo", but you can definitely make gluten-free gravy. Some sort of starch is inevitable because the cooked starch is what gelatinizes and thickens the stock. This post on glutenfreegirl.com features a... (more)

I'd guess in the same way they reason you get fat by eating fat, you'll also get fatty liver by eating fat. But perhaps more from the fact that liver really does a lot of the fat metabolism that takes place in the body, such as synthesizing... (more)

i am in the uk and find oxtail, lamb hearts and sprats to be very cheap protein sources other than liver. lamb shoulder, brisket, beef neck, chicken feet and stewing meat are all cheap too. I don't really eat pork so can't comment on that.

They don't sit well with you mentally or physically? Because if it is a problem with taste, you can chop the liver/kidney up and mix into a meatloaf or burger patties. You won't be able to taste it.
