yes, bother with it. the liver detoxifies the animal, but it doesn't store toxins, that's sort of a myth. liver doesn't have much fat, so worrying about the fatty acid composition isn't really worth it. eat that liver!

No, it isn't unusual to have your fasting BG be the highest, especially when eating low-carb. Research "dawn phenomenon;" your liver prepares you for waking and can cause a spike.

Drinking them side by side, the marriage of the RAW vitamin A and D is perfection, no? And the ceviche preparation of the salmon reduces the risk of parasites (primarily tapeworm).
