Bison meat is a wonderful alternative to grass fed beef. It is high in nutrients with a richer flavor that is just as versatile as grass fed ground beef. Bison has less calories and fat than beef as well. It’s an excellent source of lean protein, and it provides a variety of essential nutrients, like B vitamins, zinc and iron, just to name a few. Organ meats such as liver and heart are the superfoods of the animal kingdom and are some of the most nutrient-dense foods you can eat. Organ meats from grass-fed animals are safe and rich in high quality amino acids, fat, B vitamins and B12, CoQ10, minerals, and vitamins A, D and K which are important for mineral absorption. Liver is one of the most nutritionally dense foods in existence and nature’s most concentrated source of vitamin A; liver is also abundant in iron, choline, copper, folic acid, B vitamins, purines and natural cholesterol.

We all know coffee increases our energy and wakes us but it has other nutritional benefits as well! Caffeine blocks an inhibitory neurotransmitter in your brain, which causes a stimulant effect. This improves energy levels, mood and various aspects of brain function. Caffeine can increase adrenaline levels and release fatty acids from your fat tissues. It also leads to significant improvements in physical performance. Coffee contains several important nutrients, including riboflavin, pantothenic acid, manganese, potassium, magnesium and niacin. Several observational studies show that coffee drinkers have a much lower risk of type 2 diabetes, a serious condition that affects millions of people worldwide.
