UNSUAL PROTEINS By ‘Paleoista’ Nell Stephenson


BISON www.paleoista.com


Chicken breast, filet mignon, wild salmon steak all sound like nice options for a healthy dose of protein at any given meal.


Ostrich, antelope and wild boar, though - do they sound a bit ‘exotic’ and perhaps even daunting?


Regardless of what your position is on eating meat, or not, you cannot argue with the concept that eating wild is far more beneficial not only to humans and animals but also to our planet, than eating meat that comes from animals who were inhumanely treated, injected with hormones and mega doses of antibiotics and raised with no purpose in mind other than to mass produce and make a profit.


On a personal note, I must include that these factors played a huge role in my own evolution from vegan to Paleo. The knowledge that an animal had lived its life as it naturally would, and died quickly and humanely made all the difference in the world to me and allowed me to transition into the Paleo Lifestyle I now endorse with complete conviction.


How about the health benefits of eating other proteins versus sticking with the tried and true, and very familiar, options? (see sidebar)


But even if you are convinced by the benefits where do you get it?


I recommend starting locally. Head out to the farmer’s market in your hometown and see what is sold. If that’s not an option, you can also check online to see what’s available for delivery. Granted, it’s not as local as the market down the street, but supporting the small businesses of farmers or ranchers who are doing their best to make positive changes in the meat we eat is instrumental in making lasting changes.


Now, what do you do with it?

• Finally, meat from wild animals is also higher in vitamin E, which is a potent antioxidant with anti aging properties.


Here’s a taste of what you’re missing out on!


• Wild meats tend to be higher in naturally anti- inflammatory Omega 3s, which are essential for optimal brain function, heart health and have been shown to slow progress of certain cancers.


• Wild or grass fed meats are high in conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) which is also touted as a ‘good fat’ and also may reduce risk of certain Cancers.


• Game meat, including venison, bison, ostrich, boar, rabbit and elk, has a higher content of EPA, another type of Omega 3 fatty acid, compared to domesticated meat, which is said to reduce risk of developing atherosclerosis, one of the major causes of heart disease and stroke.


• Dr. S. Boyd Eaton, MD, reports that wild game has over five times the amount of polyunsaturated fat than that found in domestic livestock.


• Bison is said to be ‘one of the most healthful foods for women’ due to its high iron content. It’s also very low in sodium.
