As if that isn’t the best endorsement ever there are also several other diet plans trending as we ring in the new year that suggest eating lean meats that are high in protein. Grass-fed bison that is also grass-finished is the perfect meat to fit the bill. You can’t beat the nutritional statistics of bison meat.
If eating healthy is part of your goals for 2017 we wanted to share some of the current lifestyle plans that bison meat compliments. Losing weight is the number one New Year’s Resolution of Americans. Staying fit and healthy is number five.

Best Day Ever focuses on eating healthy food, getting realistic exercise, getting enough sleep and generally being good to yourself. P.S.
