The American Buffalo, plural is Bison, is an amazing animal and eating it is good for you. IT kept the native American Indians strong for thousands of years and it can get you ripped.

 

I was recently introduced to Buffalo meat and I can’t ever go back to beef.

Benefits of buffalo meat ( also known as Bison )

  1. Bison tastes better than beef. It has a lighter sweeter more lively flavor and does not taste gamey
  2. Bison has 70-90% less fat than beef. There is never that greasy taste in your mouth.
  3. Bison has 50% less cholesterol than beef. Big bonus to heart health.
  4. Bison has 25% more protein than beef. This makes it an awesome food for building lean muscle.
  5. Bison has incredibly high iron levels for meat which lead Reader Digest magazine to list it as a top 5 food for women.
  6. Bison is rich in the essential fatty acids.
  7. Bison has no steroids or hormones added. The FDA forbids it so we can count on Bison always being free of feminizing hormones.
  8. Bison is almost always grass fed so we can eat it with good karma.
  9. Bison also has uncommonly high levels of zinc, phosphorus, niacin, vitamin B6 and B12
  10. Did I forget to mention bison tastes amazing!

Bison Recipes

  • Raw Bison Tartar – I have all my bison raw to get the maximum protein and minerals from it. Just take some raw ground bison and use my Egyptian Garlic Sauce to cold cook it.
  • Bison Curry Balls – Ok enough Street fighter references for now.
The Cobra says:

I been having raw bison recently and I’m hooked.

One question– how does it stack up against tuna? (Nature’s
other miracle meat– except for the mercury.)

Time to go old school and level up our health by focusing on gaining not losing. Gaining strength, knowledge and confidence. The weight loss will come easily.
