Healthy Delicious Bison Burgers And Turnip Fries (With Homemade Sugar-Free Ketchup

Delicious Bison Burgers. Bison, the other red meat. I love beef burgers, steaks, and anything that is meat. And I have been a big meat-eater, but when I do occasionally consume it, I try to make sure to cook bison because of the healthy benefits. Here are just a few facts that I learned about a year ago.

Bison has 40% more protein than beef and much less fat, so you can buy less and end up eating more meat per serving.
– Chicken and fish have more calories and cholesterol than bison.
– Bison is the ONLY red meat that is non-allergenic
– They are free-range, grass-fed, without hormones, steroids, or antibiotics

I’m excited to share with you my Healthy Delicious Bison Burgers and Turnip Fries (with homemade sugar-free ketchup) recipe. And, it’s cheaper than picking up something from the drive-thru.
