  • Raw Liver Smoothies

    I am a firm believer in the requirement of regular offal in the the diet for health and energy. I eat bone marrow and bone stocks regularly with no problem.

    I have tried every liver recipe in the book and hate them all. I had been cutting up frozen liver and washing them down like pills. I don't like that strategy.

    Tonight I made a frozen raw liver smoothie:

    3 strawberries
    honey
    small piece of ginger
    a splash of cider vinegar, a little water
    a pinch of salt
    and a couple chunks of raw, frozen sheep liver.

    It was the least offensive of the liver methods I have tried.

    Any thoughts on doing this weekly? What are the odds of getting a parasite from raw liver? My immune system is very suppressed from arthritis drugs and I am sure my doctor would loose his shit if he knew I was eating this , but I am desperate for better energy and liver is one thing that helps.

    Upon doing a little reading last night - I'm thinking this is not such a great idea. Maybe I'll try to put cooked liver in the smoothie - although that seems like the texture would be nasty.

    Maybe I should try getting hypnotized into liking liver

        i tried fried liver and the smell and taste was just awful, it makes me sick thinking about it now
        i read somewhere that freezing liver for 2 weeks kills any parasites
        If man made it, don't eat it

            Have you thought about dessicated liver powder? There are several on the market~

              Dude, that is WAY too paleo for me. However, I'm a big believer in COOKED organs and struggle to get them into my diet. In fact, as I write this I'm attempting for the first time to make a broth out of grass fed beef heart (wish me luck).

              I loathe the taste of liver. I recently cooked some chicken livers using this recipe from Mark Sisson's Primal Cookbook pg.52. I cooked them with onions and ate them with baked potatoes.

              I tell you something. This was the best liver eating experience ever. It was almost completely pleasant. I froze it up and plan to eat a little snack of it every day, or every other day.

                  I've heard this too. I also make raw liver smoothies.... just gotta plug your nose and gulp 'em down as fast as possible. And keep it plugged for a while after too while the taste is still in your mouth.

                    Raw cow liver tastes like milk to me. But chicken liver has almost no flavor once cooked. A little butter and herbs and you'll probably love it.

                      Good luck on the heart broth, but I think broth made with bones would be more nutritious. Last week I made a delicious soup with broth made from pig feet and pork neck bones and some leftover dripping from a pork roast, it was so good. This weekend I made a chicken feet broth. It's not a rich as the pork was, but still good. It kind of reminds me of the wonton soup broth you get in Chinese restaurants.

                        I have tried so many ways to prepare it. But I really do hate the stuff. I like pate - but only the stuff with lots of cream and eggs (off limits for me) and preferable on french bread

                          I do have dessicated liver pills. I don't mind it, but to be honest I don't feel the same energy boost. I wonder if I could just up the dose?

                            I've read that too. I have had this frozen for a couple weeks, so I'm hoping I didn't give myself of nasty parasite. But I have also read that even after two months to occasional worm egg can sneak through 0_0!!

                              LOL - believe me, if I could find a way around it I would NEVER do this! I am really desperate for a health improvement so I'll try anything.

                              Thanks for the recipe. Maybe when I get brave again I'll give it a try
