Learning to Love Liver: A Simple Chicken Liver Pate

nourishing traditions

Ah, the New Year! What an enlightening time it is! Now, with the glamorous fireworks and confetti of the season behind us, the annual persuasion for reflection and constructive life-review has started to settle in. Earlier this week, in tediously pondering my own resolutions, I came to the unfortunate realization that there are some basic life skills that I have yet to master. For example: I still tie my shoes using the 'bunny-ear' method I learned in preschool, I consistently clap off-beat to music, and the farthest distance I have ever thrown a baseball is about 10 feet. The act of eating liver and enjoying it also happens to fall into this infelicitous category of my un-accomplishments. So, in the spirit of goal-making and a fresh start, welcome to the "Learning to Love Liver" blog series! I hope you will join me in the coming months as I explore palatable ways to include nature's most precious superfood in the diet. And, if you happen to be one of the lucky liver-inclined out there, perhaps you will share some our your tips along the way. This week we will start with a simple Chicken Liver Pate inspired by Nourishing Traditions.

Liver. You know its good for you. Traditional cookbooks include recipes for liver patés that are filled with tantalizing descriptions like "elegant," "luxurious" and "velvety smooth." Blogs are cluttered with artsy pictures of browned liver and shimmering onions dished out onto colorful platters. Liver, once shunned and forgotten, is now being praised in health communities for its powerful protein content and unique blend of vitamins. But when it comes right down to it- that smell, that taste, that texture- well, put nicely, liver is just not for everyone. So, for all the offal-afraid out there, here is a sneaky burger recipe that uses a secret dash of desiccated liver, to make an easy, healthy and surprisingly normal-tasting meal.

I do a lot of writing about the things that go on here at Radiant Life, a whole bunch of writing.

Oh, I just can't help myself! Like many of you, I am simply captivated by the grace of traditional wisdom and natural medicine. Yet, one of the most incredible things I get to do is work within an inspiring community of empowered individuals who are dedicated to spreading a message of health and happiness that goes beyond conventional approaches. So today I want to show you some ideas of how other people are using the products and resources we share at Radiant Life. For some more inspiration, visit the Ideas We Love board on pinterest!

Preconception Planning: Eat Nutrient Dense Foods!

Nutrient Dense Foods

Of all the things we can do to support radiant health, consciously planning for our children is one of the most profound and far-reaching.

Additionally, awareness is growing about the importance of parental belief systems and psychological/emotional well-being before and during pregnancy.

Beef livers provide us vitamin-rich storage depots. When sourced from healthy, grass fed cows, liver is absolutely loaded with a wide spectrum of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fat.
