SourceDoesn't that look yummy? ... ... ...
I have tried to love you, Liver. But to no avail, which is very sad. Liver is an amazing food! Full of vitamin A, and many of the B's, especially B12. (It is high in B6 when it's raw... B6 is highly heat sensitive though, and who wants to eat raw liver?!) Also it is, of course, a most amazing source of iron.
People used to eat liver weekly! Weekly I tell you! I don't know anyone who does that now. I don't even, and I'm a big fan. I have pondered over the idea if the lack of liver on our lives is one of the reasons there has been a stark rise in learning difficulties. There are so many things around us that are constantly affecting our systems, though, so I don't know if my above thought could ever be considered the only reason.
Honestly though, I do strongly believe that what we put into our bodies affects us in a tremendous way -- as I have written before, cognitively, spiritually, and emotionally. Let us not forget the wonderful lesson of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego in Daniel 1.
Now I've heard of this trick where you soak liver in lemon juice, or apple cider vinegar for a while, and then grind it and mix it with other meats to cook. You can scarcely even tell it's there! I confess, though, I am recently having a hard time getting even this down... To understand why read here.
So really this post is about a question. I know, I ask so many! This is a good one, though:
Does anyone our there have any experience with taking dessicated liver?
I just learned that you can get quality grass-fed beef liver that has been dried, powdered and pilled! I think eating it the old fashioned way is probably the most beneficial way, because I believe food vitamins benefit our bodies most when consumed with other food vitamins. But I think this will do in a pinch.
Women need extra iron, and pregnant women need even more. Thoughts on my new and exciting discovery?
