According to Monroe, there was a time in her life when she would stop at the market close to her hotel every night and pick up some liver. “I broil [it] in the electric oven in my room,” she told Pageant.
When you consider that the liver helps to filter out the toxins from the blood, it doesn’t exactly sound like the most pleasant thing to eat. However, this didn’t stop Monroe from enjoying it when cooked rare. The liver is full of vitamin A and iron, as well as protein.
