All three of my children (now teens/ adults) have high metabolisms and need carbohydrates and protein to keep their energy and spirits up! As a health conscious mother with a garden, veggies and herbs are always plentiful. I’ve found hundreds of ways to incorporate them into fun kid friendly dishes! Serving this stew in the acorn as a bowl encouraged my children to want to eat it!
It’s true that when our children eat healthy meals it warms a mothers heart. It is also a show stopper for any dinner guests. We live in the city and access to venison or moose is rare, so Manitoba bison has been a go-to protein for years. Bison is also featured throughout the menu at my restaurant, it is a real treasure to watch customers try bison sometimes for the first time and love it. It is a heritage food that has a long history among our Indigenous communities; buffalo are survivors, they teach us resilience and strength.
The meat has an intense rich sweet flavour, is lean, has less fat and fewer calories than other meats plus more protein and iron. My family enjoys anything with bison and appreciate the fact they are humanely raised, breed naturally and are as close to wild game as you can get.
