The Phils’ Secret Weapon
Better for you
“Bison is leaner than most beef and some chicken, is low in cholesterol, and is a good source of omega-3 fatty acids,” says Katie Cavuto Boyle, the Phils’ dietician and chef-owner of Healthy Bites ToGo.
“Grass-fed bison is really flavorful,” says Cavuto Boyle. “Jayson likes bison ragu and chili. Chase loves the burgers.”
Mix 1 pound ground meat, 1 Tbsp. Dijon mustard, 1 Tbsp. low–sodium soy sauce, and salt and fresh pepper to taste in large bowl. Separate into four equal amounts; form into burgers. Grill.
Where to buy
Try Whole Foods for fresh steaks, ground meat and pre-made burgers, or sign up for Lancaster Farm Fresh Co-op’s buying club for at-home delivery.
“Since it’s a leaner protein than beef, it’s easier to digest, which means carbs break down faster for quick energy,” says Cavuto Boyle. “It also keeps you full and helps muscles recover.”
