Trying to cut back on high-fat cuts of red meat? Nowadays, there are more choices than ever. These animal protein alternatives are turning up on restaurant menus and supermarket shelves — find out what they’re all about.
These cocktail-sized appetizers feature an unusual protein: venison (that’s deer meat). You’ll probably need to look harder for it at your local butcher, but venison is worth the 44 calories and 2 grams of fat per ounce (compared to 54 calories and 4 grams of fat for the same amount of ground beef). If you don’t want to try them appetizer-style in phyllo cups, make larger meatballs and serve them over whole-wheat spaghetti.
