I am not a liver fan.
Actually I pretty much hate liver – the taste and texture. Okay, you get the picture.
So why do I eat it? Because it’s good for me.
One of the top reasons I eat liver is because of B12. B12 is a vital nutrient, and I believe it helps us heal our brains since B12 is key in normal function of the brain and nervous system. And as a GAPSâ„¢ person that’s important.
If you want to read more about B12 check out: The Meat of B12 Deficiency: Interview with Sally M. Pacholok, R.N., B.S.N.
Do you have a favorite way to eat liver?

If you’re still looking for Christmas gifts I wanted to give you a couple extra ideas. Specifically Le Creuset one’s.
And they come in wonderful colors. Here are a few of my favorites.
Their Petite Round Casserole is wonderful to keep salt in. We keep ours beside the stove and use in during cooking.
I would love to own on of their Rectangular Dishes it would be perfect for casseroles.
The Enamel-on-Steel 8-Quart Covered Stockpots look really neat, and I wonder how they would do at making stock and soup.
The other thing I would love to have is one of their French Ovens. They have so many uses and one of my favorite things about Le Crueset pans is how easy they are to clean. (They’re almost like non-stick, without the Teflon.)
What are your favorite Le Crueset Items?
