Dr Jockers Comments:
I modified this recipe to add in garlic, red onion and turmeric (which I love) and make the chili pepper and red pepper optional (because I don’t like them…haha!). This is a really tasty, nutrient dense sausage that is sure to be a favorite.
Be sure to get organic turkey or ideally, pasture-raised turkey. Pasture-raised turkey is the most nutrient dense because the turkey’s were able to consume grass, bugs, etc. in a natural environment. They are also able to detoxify better because they are getting fresh air and moving their bodies rather than staying in a confined area.
I love to incorporate turmeric into my diet as often as possible because it is such a powerful anti-inflammatory. A powerful liver detoxification combination is turmeric with good fats like coconut oil and sulfur compounds like garlic and onions. You will notice that your skin and hair will feel softer and have better quality. You will also have less aches and pains and your brain will function better when using this combo.
