    Liver?!

    Primal Fuel
    I read all around that liver is very healthy to eat. Back in my mind I know that but there is a huge but for me...

    ever since all the crazy deseases starting to hit the animal world I have sworn off all organ meat. No liver, no bone marrow in the soup, ect... I'm deadly afraid of foods like that...

    Also I'm utter terrified to even eat a bite of liver... just because I know that I'm eating it...

    Is there something else I can eat that has the same nutritional value?

    or are there recipes that make me forget that it's liver I'm eating

    Make it into pâté with caramelised onions & butter and get some crispy bacon to use as ur dip !

    Not really nutritional wise
    liver is no1 , sardines no2 .

    Go for best quality liver u can get ur hands on

    Also soaking in salted water removed any impurities in bone marrow and offal.

    Marielle..I feel badly that you are so fearful of so much food. Be afraid to walk down the street, but please don't be afraid of liver, offal and bones. Yikes.

    it is just another part of the animal. my dog eats the liver over the fillets any day and we have fights over the liver and the heart. but i am nice. i let him have half of it lol seriously, i eat the liver, heart and kidneys of wild animals who've never been drenched or fed anti biotics in their lives and i am still alive and kicking.

    liver can be a challenge flavourwise to people not used to it. i reckon start on chicken liver and make pate. once you get into it, work your way up to rumminants like sheep. venison liver is the absolute bomb but it is very hard to get.

    Hello, what is terrifying about that ? I would rather be afraid to slip in my wet shower and bump my head badly ... which of course, I don't think about since I don't take showers ... just kidding, I do but I don't think of slipping on the wet floor

    My advice: just eat it, chill out and enjoy the vitamin boost!

    My dog loves liver offal anything heart !!! He goes mad , in fact Next time I cook some overcooked lean meat & have some raw liver . I will test it out but my money is on the liver. Even next to fish skin & lean expensive meat he will choose the skin / fat option .

    I grew up eating liver and I love it. If you have a problem with it, try calves liver instead of beef liver, it's milder in taste. So is lamb's liver, if you can get it at your store.

    Also, grind up your liver and mix it with ground beef for a great hamburger patty. That way you don't have the mental image of eating a slab of liver.

    The only foods to be afraid of aren't actually food anyway (synthetic trans fats, you know the list!). If it came directly from an animal (aka natural trans fats, you know that list, too!), or certain plants, you're good! Barring venemous glands in snakes, some animals' digestive tracts, yada yada.

    This might be a good idea. I'll ask the butcher to do it so that I don't even have to see the liver... For me hiding the foods I'm afraid off usually works great.

    What is it you are afraid of anyways? If you approach your fears as a question to be answered and not a monster to be feared you can face them and slay them. I am having steak liver and heart pie for breakfast without the pie crust.
