Breakfast doesn’t get any simpler, more nutrient-packed, local, delicious, or more easily assimilated than this. A pot of rabbit and duck liver paté with an icy cold cup of raw goat milk.
If you’re still on the fence about liver, paté is your gateway to boundless good feels and health. You can search up #slowdownfarmsteadpate to find a full-out tutorial on how I make it. It’s easy, freezes well, and is a great real food convenience when you have to eat, but time is tight.
As far as raw milk goes, people, you can get it! Civil disobedience is mandatory in matters around bullshit laws to keep big biz rich and you away from real food. Start chatting with your farmers, get to know them, let them get to know you. Join local food co-ops, put out the word.

Trusting relationships need to be built. It’s the farmer that has everything to lose.
