Trying different types of foods is not only fun and adventurous but it is also important for our health. At Practical Nutrition we believe in varying the foods in your diet as often as possible in order to allow yourself to get as many different nutrients as you can. If you are accustomed to eating beef, chicken, and fish you can try expanding your nutritional horizons with eating bison.
Bison is a great source of nutrients, it has the basics: zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6 and selenium. A quick review of some important functions these nutrients have:
Selenium – helps prevent cellular damage from free radicals
Zinc– does a lot- helps immune system, hair and skin health and overall cell function
Niacin helps convert food into energy for the body – all at the cellular level
Iron– carries oxygen through the body
B6– tons of value of for physical and even mental health
Bison is also extremely tasty so I recommend giving this recipe a try! Enjoy!
