"What Jill Eats" Series

If you are ever feeling under the weather, or if you just want to give yourself a boost, drink raw liver. This is some powerful stuff. I usually drink it in my special liver drink (see below) but today I juiced the liver, which is another easy way to get some raw liver nutrition. I actually make it a habit to drink raw liver juice at least 1-3 times per week. Try it, it's not as bad as you may think.

Breakfast: 1 piece of bacon, 1 soft-boiled egg yolk, celery sticks and sliced cucumber. Raw, home-made yogurt with 2 raw egg yolks and 1/2 banana.

Lunch: Leftover goat curry, 1 soft-boiled egg, mushroom, spinach and tomato salad with raw, home-made sauerkraut, sprinkled with nutritional yeast and dulse.

Dinner: Clam and fish chowder (recipe below), sauteed kale, bell pepper, cucumber and celery salad with raw chevre (chive and garlic) and freshly ground flax seeds. Tall glass of fresh vegetable juice made with raw liver. (see below)

Clam and Fish Chowder:
2 dozen little neck clams
1 lb roughly chopped Rockfish, snapper or other white fish
2-3 tbsp. butter
1/2 large onion
1 whole bulb garlic
potatoes (optional)
sea salt
black pepper
1 tsp. dried or fresh thyme
dash of white wine
2-3 cups fish stock
1 cup raw cream

Soak clams in cold, filtered water for at least 30 minutes to remove sand. Saute onions and garlic in butter until soft. Add thyme and wine and then add sea salt and pepper to taste. Let cook for about 1 minute. Add Rockfish and saute lightly for 3-5 minutes and set aside.

In a separate pot steam clams until they are fully open. Remove from heat, remove meat from shells and chop into small pieces. Add stock to fish/onion mixture, bring to a light boil, add clams and reheat. Add 1 cup of cream (preferably raw but if not try to avoid ultra-pasteurized).

If you are adding potatoes: Dice potatoes and boil separately. Add into soup with clams, just to reheat.

Jill's juice today:
2 stalks celery
1 whole green pepper
1/2 cucumber
1 whole fennel stalk
2 carrots
1 whole, raw chicken liver
1/2 bunch cilantro
few leaves of kale

Jill's Special Liver Drink:
1/2 chicken liver or 2 oz. beef liver
1 raw egg yolk
4-6 oz home-made beet kvass
dash of cinnamon
juice of 1/2 lemon

Add all ingredients to food processor and mix. Drink with a smile! Drink quickly if you have issues with liver. But the cinnamon is great at cutting the taste.


  1. Hi there Jill! I just wanted to encourage you in your journey towards real food and healing! I had Hashimoto's too and put it into remission using real food nutritional healing and other nutritional strategies. It is possible and there is so much hope!


  2. Wonderful to hear!! You're the second person in the past month who has said that. Sometimes it is hard to believe because doctors are so cut-and-dried about it. Not that I listen to doctors, he, he, he
