Wildin’ Out

Last week, I limited myself to seafood & plant based sources of protein. During that time I discovered that lentils are a great source of protein and I’m happy to say that they are now a regular part of my diet. Removing land-based animal protein from my diet was relatively easy, but I prefer the variety I’m allowed in a non-discriminatory omnivore diet. However, the number and quality of protein choices at my local supermarket isn’t exactly impressive. That is why I was one happy camper when my parents visited last week and brought a cooler full of wild game meat with them. Several pounds of both venison sausage and Canadian Goose breast all obtained and processed at my family farm in Maryland. Not only is wild game meat generally more nutritious than commercially raised livestock, but possessing the knowledge of where that animal lived, what it eat, and who processed it makes wild game meat my preferred form of protein.
