Did you know that liver can be considered a superfood? It may not be a leafy green or wild berry, but liver is one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet. So, if you’ve been wondering if liver is good for you, the simple answer is absolutely! And did I mention that it’s completely gluten-free and can be considered a keto diet recipe? Give it a try and let me know what you think!
