Health Benefits of Warm Chicken Liver Salad
Rich in protein
Chicken liver is a fantastic source of protein: 200g of chicken liver provides around 45g of high quality protein. Protein is essential for building and repairing tissue, supporting muscle growth, and maintaining a healthy immune system.
Packed with essential nutrients
Chicken liver is packed with essential nutrients necessary for optimal health. These include iron, zinc, vitamin A, vitamin B12 and folic acid. Iron is particularly important for transporting oxygen in the body and maintaining energy levels. Meanwhile, vitamin A is crucial for maintaining healthy vision and supporting immune function.
Good for heart health
Including olive oil in the recipe adds heart-healthy fats to the dish. Olive oil is known for its high content of monounsaturated fats, which may help lower bad cholesterol levels and reduce the risk of heart disease. It also contains antioxidants that have anti-inflammatory properties.
Promotes digestive health
Green beans, chicory and watercress are excellent sources of fiber, which plays a crucial role in maintaining a healthy digestive system. Fiber promotes regular bowel movements, prevents constipation and supports a healthy intestinal microbiome.
The balsamic vinegar used in the dressing is a rich source of antioxidants. These powerful compounds help protect the body from oxidative stress and reduce inflammation. Consuming a diet high in antioxidants has been linked to a lower risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease and certain types of cancer.
