Turmeric greatly improves my sluggish digestion and impossible constipation, and I take a tablespoon with each meal. It is a fact that certain spices such as cinnamon and cloves can cause significant liver damage if used in excess. How much... (more)

I'm only able to get my hands on Tyson's "All Natural" (whatever that means) chicken livers, both due to price and simple availability. Are chicken livers (regardless of their quality) any better or worse than other types of animal livers? Are... (more)
I rather enjoy liver, but where I live it's still almost $5 a pound for the non-organic, non-pasteured beef liver, and $3 for chicken. I'd have to pay $12-$15 per pound for the good stuff.We only have a budget of about $200 per month for groceries... (more)

I'm getting a new BBQ/Grill today and I'm thrilled! I know for the most part how to do meat on it but what are some of the best veggies to grill, and how do you go about it? What about tubers and other USO's? Also, can you do liver on the... (more)
I just made a thread asking about paleo and from looking at old threads the advice is all sati ng do not eat more tun 150 grams a week. For the last week I have been eating 500-700 grams of chicken and beef liver PER DAY. Do I need to stop... (more)
i am in the uk and find oxtail, lamb hearts and sprats to be very cheap protein sources other than liver. lamb shoulder, brisket, beef neck, chicken feet and stewing meat are all cheap too. I don't really eat pork so can't comment on that.

Hi I am curious about trying other organ meats besides liver or kidney. These 2 I have tried and, frankly, don't sit well with me. I'm curious for example does stomach taste like liver? What about intestines or tongue? These would be... (more)

What can I do to help to repair my liver and what things can be done for good liver function in general? What should I eat and/or supplement? I have heard milk thistle and dandelion root are good. Thanks!!!
What are some good sources of folate other than leafy greens? Best I can find so far is chicken liver (or duck or other foul). Nice, because I wanted a good excuse to opt for chicken liver over beef liver now and then. I love them both. I... (more)
