Bison (Buffalo) is a leaner red meat and can be a healthy alternative to beef.  It is packed with protein and has less saturated fat and calories compared to beef.  Bison is a great source of zinc, niacin, iron, vitamin B6, and selenium.   Since bison is leaner than beef, you need to be careful not to overcook it and dry it out.   Be sure to cook ground bison until it is just about pink in the center or has an internal temperature of 160 degrees Fahrenheit.   

The radishes add extra bulk and fiber without changing the taste. Fiber helps with regularity and aids in maintaining a healthy weight. Radishes are an excellent source of vitamin C helping rebuild tissues and blood vessels.

Your overall intake of calories and carbohydrates is decreased when you substitute it with a Portobello mushroom cap.  Mushrooms contain antioxidants and are rich in protein, vitamin B and selenium.  Over time, mushrooms may be good for your heart by lowing your blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, and inflammation.

1 tsp. olive oil
1 roasted red pepper, sliced
12 oz. bison, ground
