You can change up the veggies to whatever you have in the fridge, ie. broccoli, cauliflower, celery, zucchini spirals...

Energy Boosting Chicken Liver Pate

It's also a good source of Vitamin A which helps with wound healing and eye health. It also contains CoQ10 a powerful antioxidant.

Bone Broth

TIPS:

Bone broth can be frozen and used later instead of water to make grains, soups and stews. Keeps in the freezer for up to 6 months.

I like to cook the broth all day for one day then place in a cool spot (garage/bucket of ice/refrigerator) over night then cook it for another day.
