Looking to try a healthy alternative to beef, give Bison a shot and add some great nutrient dense ingredients like Ginger! The below recipe is easy to prep and easy to make.
Bison is a federally protected animal so you know that it will not have hormones and they live in a free environment. Their meat is high in protein and has a lower amount of saturated fat than normal cow beef. The meat is high in selenium which helps fight free radical cells, high in iron which helps spread oxygen throughout the body, and high in niacin which helps break our food down into energy!
Throw in a side of sauteed Kale and this dish will make for the perfect lunch or dinner!
