Default 6 Best Exotic Muscle-Building Meat Options

6 Best Exotic Muscle-Building Meat Options

Here are six exotic meat choices that, when consumed as an alternative to the staples of chicken, tuna and beef, will help build slabs of granite-dense muscle!

By Matthew Kadey, MS, RD

Bison

If you lament the bland flavor of burgers and steaks from factory-farm beef, itís time to hoof it over to your local butcher for some bison. With a slightly sweet, robust flavor bison (aka buffalo) is stock-piled with protein ó about 36 grams in a 6-ounce serving. Bonus: Unlike most cattle bison is not pumped full of growth-promoting hormones and antibiotics.

Elk

Loaded with iron, testosterone-boosting zinc and protein, farm-raised elk meat tastes mildly sweet, much like bison. Look for it as steaks, ground meat and pepperettes, the last of which makes for a protein-packed snack-on-the-go. Like all game elk can handle a lot of big flavors so try it in stews and chili.

Arctic Char

Casting your line for this northern swimmer is a surefire way to reel in docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), two superstar omega-3 fats shown to stimulate muscle protein synthesis. Astaxanthin, the antioxidant responsible for the pink hue of char, may bolster immune defense. Thatís good news for bodybuilders who train like animals. Substitute char for salmon in your favorite recipes.

Venison

Venison ó deer, in laymenís terms ó has an excellent woody, fruity flavor with a tender texture. Its stellar 9-to-1 protein-to-fat ratio makes it about as lean as chicken breast. As with all lean game meat, take care not to overcook venison; otherwise, youíll end up with meat thatís as hard as Metallicaís early years.

Ostrich

Weíve got no beef with chicken, but as a feathered red-meat alternative, ostrich is a serious heavyweight. It even has that same crimson glow and meaty texture as steak, but is often much leaner. With only 4 grams of fat in a 6-ounce serving ostrich boasts 36 grams of protein. As a red meat it also supplies creatine to help power up your bodybuilding.

Rabbit

Gnawing on Bugs Bunny helps you load up on protein, the potent antioxidant selenium and vitamin B12. Your growing muscles crave vitamin B12 since itís required for proper muscle cell synthesis. Rabbit is low in fat calories with a mild flavor. For ease of preparation have your butcher section a whole rabbit. Then add the cubes to casseroles, chili, soups and stews.

I'm personally love the Bison meat. Is super good, high in protein and low in fat. Plus, I just found a Bison farm close to my house. Good prices and even delivery for free on his truck. What else I can ask for?

Possibly never going to occur due to other fats in the diet but best to be aware of high consumption of very lean meat.

You beat me to it Babs. We talked about that briefly in a survival class. Apparently, once you get the hang of snaring rabbit it's easy, and survivalists like easy food sources. But you have to watch foods like this. I always found it to be a bit greasy and stringy when cooked anyways.

Personal tips that I've learned along my still short journey:

Leave your ego at the door.
Prepare. Showing up dehydrated, hungry, and tired will guarantee failure.
Be ready to fight for that grinder of a PR.
Listen and learn. Absorb everything you can, and assimilate that knowledge.
