Chicken Liver & Eggs & Greens

Not everyone loves organ meats but live provides a massive amount of B vitamins, vitamin A, copper, iron, selenium and zinc.  It is also super satiating with lots of protein. The eggs in this recipe boost the choline, calcium and a bit of omega 3. The spinach rounds out the nutrient profile with manganese, magnesium, vitamin K and potassium which aren’t as plentiful in the liver.
