Want to Get More Liver into Your Loved Ones?
It's easy when you hide it in their meals! The thing is, when you add liver powder to certain dishes, you can hardly taste it and it adds a depth of flavour and richness that you may not have had without it.
Liver in bolognese is particularly good! Give this recipe a try of you're looking for a nutritional boost for yourself and your loved ones.
The best way to make this is to slow cook it over about 3 hours (if you have to go to work, you could slow cook it all day in a slow-cooker or make it the night before and reheat). Re-heated tends to have even more flavour but won't suit people who have histamine issues.
If you do have histamine issues, you may find that conventional beef causes you issues? This is something I worked out awhile back when I discovered I'm HIT (histamine intolerant). I also discovered that I can eat fresh beef as it hasn't had the chance to develop the bacteria that cause HIT.
You may also want to remove the tomatoes and passata as tomatoes are high histamine. If you see a bolognese with red wine, this should also be avoided if HIT.

** Gluten is known to damage the gut lining which often leads to leaky gut syndrome, brain issues, thyroid issues and other autoimmune conditions. That is why we always say to use gluten-free (GF) where possible. 🙂
