Breakfast of Superfoods

beef liver burger and two eggs

What’s so special about this morning’s breakfast? It’s just a burger with two eggs, but that burger is a combination of two-thirds ground beef and one-third ground liver. It’s a tip I picked up from Dr. James DiNicolantonio to help mask the taste of liver.

Liver, beef and eggs are three superfoods that Dr. DiNicolantonio lists in his book The Mineral Fix. He states that liver is “arguably the most nutrient-dense food on the planet” and eggs are similar to liver in that they contain “all the vitamins and minerals your body needs.” Add beef to the mix and you have a winning combination.

I finished off the meal with a double espresso and a handful of macadamia nuts. Talk about energy… I can’t wait for this morning’s workout!

By the way, the “meat and nuts breakfast” is a concept that I picked up from the late Charles Poliquin. You can read all about it in my book Lean & Mean.
