Chicken Liver & Eggs & Greens

Not everyone loves organ meats, but liver 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 omega 3. The spinach rounds out the nutrient profile with manganese, magnesium, vitamin K1 and potassium, which aren’t as plentiful in the liver.
