There are a few staple meats that pretty much everybody in America has had at one time or another. A large percentage of people in the United States typically eat beef, pork and chicken. Although beef is slowly destroying the environment through carbon emission, and cattle runoff is creating huge dead zones in the ocean, people still eat quite a bit of it because it’s hard to change our habits, they don’t generally think long term, and McDonald’s is their master.
However, there are many meats out there that are less omnipresent in our society, yet are much better for the world, and often just as tasty. Here below are just a few of them.
Rabbits are a white meat. They taste like a slightly juicier version of chicken, and can be prepared in a variety of ways. The only problem with rabbits is, if you eat the wrong one, there will be no Easter.
Lamb is like beef, but healthier for you, and better for the environment. It is a little harder to eat lamb because lambs are adorable, but just remember this simple equation: the more adorable something is, the tastier it is. That is why the best tasting thing on the planet is Zooey Deschanel riding a baby dolphin into a pile of Teletubbies.
Much, much healthier than beef, and just as tasty. Buffalo tastes like steak but without all the fat. It is a little harder to find, but buffalo meat is exceptional for its taste, its texture, and the best part is every buffalo comes with a secret prize somewhere on the buffalo, usually a fun flip book, or a slide whistle–which is why the Native Americans always used the whole buffalo–to get to the secret prize.
Duck is more or less like dark-meat chicken. It has very good skin for crisping, and goes well with most vegetables and a wide variety of wines. Not to mention the added benefit that their stem cells can be used to make futuristic hand grenades.
