Fun Fact Fridays: Placenta Recipes!
got placenta smoothie?
The baby isn't the only thing being made from scratch these days. I'm sure you've always known this (but like me, never really thought about it) but the placenta is the only organ that humans grow as adults. When we need one, we make one. Then we shed the organ when it's no longer needed! How incredibly efficient of our bodies to do so! But the fun doesn't stop there, homies. Many people believe that there are health benefits to consuming the placenta. I did a quick recipe search online and found a cocktail recipe, a torta recipe and something that vaguely resembled a bolognese. So break out the chianti and start shelling those fava beans. After baking low and slow for forty weeks your dinner is served!
