Considering how very nutrient dense offal is, it’s been surprisingly hard to find organ meat recipes that do really well in the nutrition ranking because so many of the recipes are ‘diluted’ with lots of sweet stuff to mask the taste.
That is, until Tristan Haggard sent me their long awaited ‘ketogenic edge cookbook‘.
Tristan and Jessica Haggard from Primal Edge Health moved from California to Ecuador to seek a healthier place to live and raise their family.
Clean water. More sunshine. Closer to the equator.
These guys are the real deal.
The recipes in their new cookbook document’s how Jessica lovingly makes sure they ensure they ensure they thrive with their food. It’s not all offal, but it’s clean, nutrient dense and simple, even when it comes to the deserts.
This recipe for curried eggs with cows brains does spectacularly well with the vitamins and minerals as well as the amino acids while still being 68% fat.
The table below shows the nutritional data per 500 calorie serving.

Combining the brains with the egg, spinach and avocado makes for a pretty unbeatable combination when it comes to nutrient density. In fact it ranks at:
- #1 in the diabetes and nutritional ketosis ranking,
- #3 in the therapeutic ketosis ranking,
- #5 in the nutrient dense ranking, and
- #5 in the weight loss ranking.
The only thing really missing from the book is a family photo to show how health these nutrient dense whole foods are making them. So here you go.
