Eating Duck Liver All Week?

by (2272) Updated March 11, 2014 at 6:00 PM Created March 11, 2014 at 4:19 PM

So on Saturday I buy some Duck Liver Pate from the farmer's market and eat it throughout the week. Most people say to only have liver once/week, but is there any harm in spacing out ~1/2 cup of liver throughout the week?

1/2 cup? No harm in that at all, specially since it's liver from fowl. I have been eating 1 pound worth of chicken liver in the form of home made pate this week, it was amazing. Last week I had some pork liver pate nearly every day of the week. I do have to warn you however, that if you are at risk for gout, you should tread lightly and not make it a daily thing. Also, if you are consuming cod liver oil or some other Retinol (vitamin A) supplementation, you should stop, liver already has a huge amount of Vitamin A, add to that a supplement and you could easily go into hypervitaminosis A territory, which is not very fun. Other than that, eat up, Pate is amazing. By the way, may I suggest Pâté de Campagne? It's more meat than liver so you should have even less to worry about.

Eat a varied diet. That said, that amount of liver (1/2 cup) over multiple days is not an issue.
