Alternative meats

Does anyone here eat different meats other than the normal ones like chicken, turkey, beef, pork, lamb etc.?

Ive been looking for a change and have just come acrros a website that suchs meats such as bison, crocodile, kangaroo, ostrich, and zebra among others
Are any of these beneficial in a bodybuilding diet?

    I have heard that Kangaroo meat is low in fat, and very high in protein. It is also one of the best known sources of CLA.

    Here is a website that has a good picture of the different Kangaroo meats.

    Here is a website with some nutritional information on Kangaroo meat.

    Only if you eat it at the wrong time of year and don't eat the fat from the body cavity.

    From http://www.price-pottenger.org/Articles/Aborigines.htm "The great challenge for the Aborigine was to obtain enough dietary fat. They were close observers of nature and knew just when certain animals were at their fattest. For example, kangaroos were fat when the fern leaf wattle was in flower; possums when the apple tree was in bloom. Other signs indicated when the carpet snake, kangaroo rat, mussels, oysters, turtles and eels were fat and at their best. Except in times of drought or famine, the Aborigine rejected kangaroos that were too lean -- they were not worth carrying back to camp."

    All types of game such as:

    wild boar, pheasant, rabbit, partridge, pigeon, duck (it is NOT fatty)

    I have some buffalo rump steak in the fridge right now too.

    ostrich is excellent and zebra meat is also very low fat and high protein. crocodile is not my cup of tea though.

    badasss, do those meats taste alot different from other meats? as in, would it be worth going to the effort to order those instead of say beef?

    ostrich and zebra aren't exactly running around England so are going to be pretty expensive, not really a replacement for the more common meats.

    Game on the other hand is plentiful and pretty cheap, tastes a lot stronger so isn't to everyones taste.

    Try some venison as that is quite 'gamey' and will give you an idea what some more exotic meats taste like.

    I've eaten ostritch a few times, i find it more like beef than chicken. High protien, low fat. Good stuff. Not exactly plentiful as stated but its is being farmed in the UK now.

    problem with all these is they are hard to get in uk and therefore expensive.

    kangeroo tastes awesome absolutly love the stuff (done as kebabs with plum sauce)

    zebras very tasty

    rattlesnakes very good as well

    not sure of the nutritional quality but would make a great change from the usual meats ( also not farmed in the same way as usual meats so less likly to have been messed with)
