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 obviously going to be tastier (almost sweet, in my experience), more nutritious, and cleaner, but I think you can safely eat the occasional liver meal from conventionally raised animals, too."
But then I search other sites they say not to eat them at all.
I wont be buying them again, but should I throw these away?
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 too. But I wouldn't toss the chicken livers. Sisson's advice is generally pretty well thought out. Unless I saw some serious science that they were very bad for you - I would eat them!
I think the benefits outweigh the drawbacks.
But nothing we say is going to help you make up your mind. You've done your research, and you still aren't sure.
Me: I'd eat them. I can't afford good quality stuff, so I do the best I can, even if it's conventionally grown.
I'd say it depends on what else you have available to eat...ie what would you substitute them with in your food intake. If I had those chicken livers or some salad without protein, I'd eat the livers. If I had a nice grass-fed lamb joint I'd roasted the night before, just sitting in the fridge waiting to be cut (guess what I did last night!!!) I'd throw the livers and eat the lamb. And then buy proper ones next time...
what do i do with these chicken livers? 13 Answers
