Grass-Fed Beef Liver Pate

Print

One thing I’m doing as a part of healing decades of being malnourished is incorporating more organ meat in my diet. With lots of garlic, rosemary, and bacon fat, this doesn’t even taste like liver. Plus, it tickled me more than a little to make what is basically meat dip ūüôā

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

The first thing that jumps out as super healthy, is the fact that the liver is from a grass-fed cow. That means the liver will have less bad stuff and more healthful fats. Another wonderful thing about this recipe is the onion and garlic. Beside flavor, these foods provide wonderful prebiotics-food for the healthy bacteria inhabiting your gut. However, if you are sensitive to fodmaps, or have SIBO (small intestinal bacteria overgrowth) those prebiotics will cause more harm than good. Both coconut oil and olive oil are extremely good for you, in different ways. Coconut oil is made up of medium chain triglycerides so they are easy to digest and absorb and are used for energy not for storage (weight gain). Olive oil is a good source of oleic acid, a healthful fat that most of us don't get enough of.
