An EASY Alternative to Liver & Onions

Got picky eaters? I certainly do. I work tirelessly each and every day to provide my family with the nutrient dense foods that their bodies need. Nothing is more frustrating than serving your family a nutrient dense meal that they simply refuse to eat. This is my family’s problem with liver and onions. Beef liver is one of the most nutrient dense foods in the world, but that doesn’t help me if my kids refuse to eat it! Luckily, I have found an alternative.

My family now takes desiccated liver pills! Well, my husband and I knowingly take the capsules. For the kids, I simply empty the capsules into foods like soups, stews, broths, and sauces. The trick is to stir in the powder AFTER the food is finished cooking and just before serving. Heating the beef liver powder will destroy some of the nutrients so it is best to add just before serving when the food has cooled to a temperature safe for eating.

Grass-fed beef liver is packed with nutrients and you can give your family these same exact nutrients in the convenient form of a capsule supplement. A typical serving of the desiccated liver capsules that my family takes contains 2.8mg of naturally occurring iron, 969 IU of naturally occurring vitamin, and 5.5mcg of vitamin B12. These nutrients keep my family healthy and energized on a daily basis.

Grass-fed beef liver is a lot like cod liver oil; it doesn’t taste great but I know that my family needs it. Thankfully, I can find both beef liver and cod liver oil in convenient and tasteless capsules. This has been a great option for my family. How do you get your kids to eat the nutrient dense foods that they are not very fond of? Let me know!
