In the Practical Living [healthy eating] section of the October 2001 issue of the Diabetes Forecast, Robyn Webb, MS, LN, writes on bison, "I recently became a convert to this succulent meats. What I love most about bison is its superstar nutritional qualities. It has about 30 percent more protein and 25 percent less cholesterol than beef. In a 3 1/2-ounce. serving of cooked bison there are only three grams of fat, compared with 14 grams in beef sirloin, and about half the calories (120 vs.21 0). Bison is great paired with other indigenous American foods such as corn, tomatoes, and peppers.
