LCHF foods I love – beef liver sauteed with onions

“Crammed full of nutrients, if a “superfood” truly exists, then we have to give that recognition to liver.”

– Michael Joseph

All beef, pork or chicken livers, are incredibly rich in protein, vitamins and minerals.

The nutritional of 100 grams of beef liver are as follows:

  • Vitamin B12: 1176% RDA
  • Copper: 714% RDA
  • Vitamin A: 634% RDA
  • Riboflavin: 201% RDA
  • Niacin: 88% RDA
  • Pantothenic Acid: 71% RDA
  • Folate: 63% RDA
  • Selenium: 52% RDA
  • Phosphorus: 50% RDA
  • Iron: 36% RDA
  • Zinc: 35% RDA
  • Manganese: 18% RDA
  • Potassium: 10% RDA

A weekly meal of liver is more than enough to ensure adequate micronutrient intake. As liver contains a high amount of Vitamin A, it is possible to experience toxicity if eaten  too often.
