Bad skin? Buy more expensive skin care, or eat more beef liver and shellfish.
“Take this pill for that problem” may be the medical model but never in history did humans take one supplement for one health issue. Healing is accelerated when nutritious foods are supplied, not when poor foods are supplied with added supplements.
The need for supplements arises when the diet is poor in nutrients and high in digestive inhibitors. The diet prescribed in The Way Up is high in nutrients and low in digestive inhibitors. Eating only foods that are high in nutrients powerfully increases the intake and utilisation of those nutrients.
Liver pâté is actually one of the easiest and best-tasting ways to eat liver, which is (rightfully) nicknamed “nature’s multivitamin.”
It’s nature’s most concentrated source of vitamin A; it is also abundant in B12 and other B vitamins, plus iron, choline, copper, folic acid, purines and natural cholesterol.
Liver Pâté Recipe /4 servings
- 500 g chicken liver or duck or beef liver, sinew removed
- 250 ml chicken or beef stock
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, duck fat, lard, chicken fat or tallow
- Sourdough slices, to serve
- 1 spring onion, thinly sliced, to serve (optional)
- Heat a medium saucepan with a tablespoon of coconut oil or fat over medium heat. Add the liver and garlic to the pan, then add the broth and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
- Carefully transfer the liver, garlic and any remaining liquid to the blender and blend on high until it forms a thick and smooth pâté consistency. Pour the pate in 4 x 200 ml ramekins. Place in the refrigerator to set for 2 hours.
- Once the pâté has set, garnish with some spring onions (if using).
- Serve with toasted sourdough and fresh fruit if you like.
- An excellent source of high-quality protein and amino acids to balance out the amino acids found in muscle meat.
- A concentrated source of vitamin A, vital for immune and skin health.
- A potent source of B vitamins, especially B-12 and folate, crucial for strong energy levels and cellular health and repair.
- Rich in trace minerals like iron, zinc, copper and chromium, contributing to endless enzymatic reactions in the body.
