It’s summertime, which means a lot of grilling out- and the National Bison Association wants to remind people of the nutritional benefits of bison meat over ground beef as your choice in burger grilling.
The bison has been in the news lately, as the animal was recently named the official national mammal of the United States. But, unlike our national bird, our national mammal is both awe inspiring- and quite tasty.
“There’s no doubt that people are embracing the great taste, the great nutrition, and the sustainable story of bison,” said Dave Carter, executive director of the National Bison Association. There’s nothing more all-American than a bison burger, or steak on the summertime grill.
Because of the increasing popularity in bison meat, it’s becoming easier to find in conventional grocery stores and meat markets. Farmers’ markets are also a great place to find locally-grown, responsibly raised bison meat.
So, whether you’re a meat eater looking for a lower fat substitution to beef, or you’re a vegetarian looking to appreciate the beauty of this mammal, take some time this month to appreciate and celebrate the American Bison.
