Chicken liver & eggs

Liver is a great source of B vitamin, iron, phosphorus, selenium, zinc and vitamin A while the eggs boost the choline.  Many people do better with less plant-based foods, particularly if they have digestive issues. At the same time, it’s worth noting that even the most nutrient-dense animal foods don’t provide high levels of a handful of important nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium and potassium and an omnivorous diet tends to provide the best overall nutrient profile.
