iVillage.com: Dr. Oz's Healthiest Superfoods -- How Many Are In Your Shopping Cart?

15 of 26

Supermarket Staple #15: Bison/Buffalo Burger (Sirloin Burger)

Why It's a Must Have: Believe it or not, bison (buffalo) meat is lower in fat and calories than chicken, says Dr. Brock. “Bison is considered a highly nutrient dense red meat because of its higher proportion of protein, fat, minerals, and fatty acids to calorie ratio.” And not only is it 76% lower in fat, but it also has 35% more protein than beef and may help you reduce your cholesterol levels. “Studies show that eating 5 ounces of bison meat, 3-4 times per week may help most people to reduce artery-clogging LDL cholesterol 40-50 percent over a six-month period.”

Budget Bonus: This is one investment worth making (think of all the money you are saving elsewhere) and buy grass-fed bison burgers or bison meat since its nutritional value is higher than conventional meat, recommends Dr. Brock.
