  • Anyone eat liver(beef)?

    Ate it as child, ceased when I left home. Reintroducing it back into my diet. Not abundantly available in all stores grocery stores(not at TJ’s or albertsons). $6.99/lb at whole foods behind the counter, so at my last visit I bought out their whole stock(which was 3 lbs). Curious as to what a small sample size of health care professionals think about this food product.

    My grandfather was a veterinarian way back in the 60s-70s-80s. He said it was great for fertility and would feed it to his big cats when they were breeding them. I think liver was also prescribed to expecting mothers in England as it is rich in iron.
    My mom prepares lamb liver: cuts in small cubes, marinates it for quite a few hours in the fridge with Indian spices and fries it. It's delicious.

        I love liver (both beef and chicken), but rarely think to buy it. But as luck would have it, I am supposed to get a small shipment of beef liver from a local farmer next week. Yum!

          Liverwurst from us wellness meats is delicious.

          I also eat raw liver occasionally. Well I swallow it like a pill.

            Stock up on the colchicine.

              Added salt pepper and random spices that we’ve accumulated over the last 2 decades. After I pan fried a cut of ribeye for my kids’ breakfast I fried three strips of liver in the leftover beef tallow. Cooked it to medium(where the blood starts to extravasate out of the liver). It took like 3-4 minutes. Never cooked it before but it was really good.

                Used to in my home country, eat it when I visit, but rarely eat it here. It's delicious stir-fried with spices.

                          Primate evolution has led to the loss of uricase activity. With increased fructose(from fruit/honey) ingestion you get increased levels of uric acid:

                          Increased uric acid leads to more ROS in mitochondria leading to more mitochondrial dysfunction:

                          Mitochondrial dysfunction=fat accumulation=able to leave areas where fruits are ubiquitous=the ingress of higher level primates into colder climes.

                            In my culture, we eat from snout to hooves. Don't want to waste anything.

                            So I found all these parts yummy: brain, heart, tongue, liver, tripes.

                            Now I'm a vegetarian and find fruits and veggies yummy.

                              I do enjoy liver in various forms but the only time I ate it regularly, and in fact craved it, was when I was doing keto. There was one particular braunschweiger by a local company that was simply perfection.
