While ancestrally we once ate nose to tail, our diets have changed very dramatically and many of our meals are void of essential vitamins, and particularly collagen protein which is found in offal and slow cooked meat dishes like bone broth. Now it is easier than ever to reintroduce this powerhouse protein back into your diet especially for those time poor or simply not a fan of eating liver.
