Liver & Eggs

Liver is an excellent source of B vitamins, iron, phosphorus, selenium, zinc, vitamin A, and choline boosted by the superfood eggs in this recipe. Many people find they do better eating fewer plant-based foods, particularly if they have digestive issues.

But not even the most nutrient-dense animal proteins provide high levels of vital nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin K, magnesium and, potassium.  So, experiment to find the ideal balance of plant and animal-based foods to optimize your nutritional goals.
