Pop quiz, hot shot. You have to prepare a meal. What do you do? I'd be willing to bet your first response was "something-something-beef". Burgers, meatloaf, steak, or meatza, we all lean on the animal we know and love and for good reason. Meat is delicious. It's easy to prepare, a complete protein, great for recovery, and simultaneously combines the sweet taste of heaven and the excitement of a party in your mouth.
So what's wrong with loving meat more than the other animal protein sources on our "Eat With Abandon" list? Nothing. It's great to have favorites- favorite team, favorite movie, favorite child -but with great nutrition comes great responsibility. There must be balance. Our good friend and performance expert, Dr. Tom Incledon of Human Health Specialists, encourages Power Athletes to eat the colors of the rainbow which includes diverse animal proteins. However more often than not, we see diets laden with beef and lacking in other hugely viable protein and fat sources. Remember that if it has a face, a mother, and a soul, it's fair game. Let's talk about a species that more than meets this criteria but is regularly neglected.
