Last night, HM, the MIL and I made tacos. In the ever present goal to lose weight, I decided to sneak in ground buffalo in place of ground beef. I have to say, I really like it better than beef. Here is what the world wide interweb has to say:
Grass-fed buffalo is higher in iron and protein than beef, though the meats have comparable amounts of B vitamins. Grass-fed bison also contains higher amounts of Omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed beef.
Fat and calories
Ground buffalo has a lower saturated and unsaturated fat content than most ground beef, is generally lower in cholesterol and has an average of 143 calories per 3-ounce serving vs. 211 for ground beef. However, if you purchase 95 percent lean ground beef, the fat content is similar to buffalo.
After dinner we headed out on a walk to get ice cream at Baskin Robbins.
Say hello to the MIL Sweets! Buckley is such a spaz!Okay Sweets, that is it for the day. I will be back tomorrow with a new food suggestionHere is a hint about tomorrows post. It is about my new favorite breakfast item which the MIL introduced me to. Here is a hint:
- It is a species of flowering plant in the mint family
- It is a food that is rich in omega-3 fatty acids
- It may be eaten raw as a whole seed, providing protein, fats and fiber.
Any one want to take a guess?
