Lately, I’ve been realizing more and more that I need to focus on eating more nutrient dense food.
That term gets thrown around a lot in the Paleo/Real Food Community for a reason; nutrient dense foods are amazingly good for you.
I started making broth again, making sure I was getting in my cod liver oil/butter oil and eating liver a couple times a week.
This is such a simple recipe but man, it is so good that when I make a batch, I cannot stop eating it.
It makes me feel like running when I know I should walk, and it is just packed with a ton of goodness for your body.
There is a pound of bacon in this recipe – yes, a pound and it helps a lot with the flavor.
If you’re new to organ meats, then reduce the amount of liver in order to build up your tolerance. Your body will thank you for it!
- 2 Tbsp coconut oil
- 1 lb bacon, diced
- 3/4 lb chicken livers

- Place this in a food processor.
- Separate the solid coconut cream from the milk and place the coconut cream in the food processor. Set aside the milk.
