Bison is a beef alternative that’s catching on more and more. Bison is markedly leaner than beef with a 3.5-ounce serving containing only 2–3 grams of fat compared with 8–9 grams in a comparable cut of beef. This also translates into bison containing 33% fewer calories than beef, making it a perfect protein source when you’re in the latter stages of getting lean and calories are at a premium. A study published this year found more favorable changes in cardiovascular disease risk factors when study participants ate 12 ounces of bison per day versus 12 ounces of beef.
