Homemade Chicken Liver Pate & {WIN} With #FoodLoversFetive

Sponsored by Food Lover’s Market

I know a lot of people love chicken livers, but I’m NOT one of those people. I’m really just not a fan. I don’t like the texture of the liver at all. But I DO love a good chicken liver pate. 

And now I’ve found a recipe that is as good, if not better, than your favorite store bought chicken liver pate!

This recipe is divine. It’s rich and creamy and easy peasy to make! Delicious served as a dip with veggie sticks or with your favorite low carb seed crackers. Perfect as a starter to your Christmas lunch. The recipe also yields a fair amount so no need to worry if you’re serving a larger group of people. I got 3 large ramekins of pate from the one recipe.

    Argh I don’t think my previous comment loaded! If it did sorry for the repeat.

    I love their huge selection of fruit at the moment. Zoe and I have been experimenting with delicious smoothie recipes in the Nutribullet

    My favourite produce at food lovers is their fruit. They have a nice selection and I especially like their Wednesday bonus deals. I also like that you can pick and choose nuts and sweets from the barrel thingies (no idea what they’re called), allowing you to take as little or as much a you want /need.

    Definitely the bread section. lol. Love it!

    This recipe looks delish, and I love that it’s so high in good fats, and low in carbs. (The irony seeing as my fave produce consists of carbs! ha ha).

    I love FLM fish selection! My kids don’t eat it and it’s my one “me only” indulgence

    They really cater for everything one needs but I have been most impressed with their meat selection recently.

    My favourite produce at Food Lovers is definitely the fruit! My husband and I live on smoothies during the summer months and Food Lovers always has a wide selection of fresh fruit.
