A good pâté can stand on its own when surrounded by soft-boiled farm-fresh eggs, steamed asparagus spears, raw cauliflower, and colorful beets, and steamed Brussels sprouts!
This combination also makes a potent methylation-friendly meal – liver provides a surprisingly high amount of natural folate, other B vitamins, and minerals such as zinc which are used in the clearance of homocysteine. Choline from eggs and betaine from zinc also participate in healthy homocysteine metabolism. The phytonutrients rosmarinic acid in rosemary, allicin in garlic, and sulforaphane in the cauliflower and Brussels sprouts work as methylation adaptogens, balancing methyl groups that attach to DNA and regulate genetic expression.
