One simple way to add raw liver to your diet is to make capsules using desiccated liver. You can also add thawed liver into meatballs, sausage, and meatloaf. (I am sure to freeze the liver ahead of time to avoid any potential parasite issues.)
But doesn’t the liver store toxins? This is the number one concern people have about eating liver. While the liver is the center for the neutralization of toxins, it doesn’t store them. Drugs, pesticides, and other toxins that are not eliminated are stored in the fatty tissues and nervous system.
Instead, the liver stores critical nutrients such as vitamins A, D, E, K, B12, and folic acid.
How to eat raw liver
- Buy liver from a trusted source, making sure it has no added hormones, is free from drugs, and is truly grass-fed.
- Thaw in refrigerator overnight.
- Process in food processor.
- Pour into ice cube tray and refreeze.
- Cut into “pills” and enjoy!
