Amplify Health After 50: Easing into Organ Meat My sister-in-law was a rockstar mom. She cooked organ meats for my niece. Who is to this day healthy, resilient and as strong a woman as I know.
I did not do this for my son. Just saying. I loved the idea of making my own baby food. I just never did it. Can you relate?
And I personally, cringed… and begged for an invitation to my next door neighbor’s house for dinner when my mom occasionally served liver for dinner. The smell alone made me gag.
With our world so polarized by vegans and carnivores, and keto and Paleo, and fasting and fueling… enter organ meats.
I am no expert in that arena and as you might guess I am not serving up liver in my recipe batching weekly. I am however an advocate for high micronutrient-dense diets that support muscle, bone and brain health.
Aren’t you? So if we put down our personal preferences for a moment and just consider the information as just that, this episode is for informed choices. Whether or not they’re right for you, is up to you.
