Here is today’s fun tip!
This one is NOT for the vegetarians (sorry!) Today we are highlighting Bison.
A red meat, but lean protein source, bison is a way to mix up your protein sources, but still keep the fat content low (depending on the cut of course!)
It is not only a great source of lean protein, but is high in B vitamins, zinc and iron. This meat is native to North America, and is usually sourced locally, and is typically farmed more sustainably than other available protein sources.
It may not be found in every grocery store, but can be found at most heath food groceries, and even in Costco!
Sometimes nicknamed “the other red meat” here are some reasons to try bison:
• Much more likely to be “grass-fed” than beef
• Great source of lean protein
• High in energizing B vitamins • Fights inflammation due to higher levels of selenium
• Supports a strong immune system with zinc
• Helps prevent Iron deficiency ~~~
Four ounces of ground bison meat has around:
•6 grams fat
•17 grams protein
My favorite way to make bison is in a slow cooker bison chili!
