The Instacart guide to game meat products
Game meat is any type of animal meat that's hunted for food. When you're stuck in a protein rut, game meat can be a nice change from the typical beef, pork, and chicken rotation that you're probably using for your daily meals. It's not only higher in protein and lower in fat and cholesterol than domesticated meat, but it's also packed with vitamins.

FAQs about game meats
Just like any meat, game meats need to be cooked properly. Don't expect to cook a venison steak the same as you would a rib-eye steak. That's because the fat content isn't the same in the two types of meat. Do a little research and find recipes that cater specifically to game meats, and the meat should be easy to chew.
If you're still apprehensive, choose one of your favorite meat-based recipes and swap out the old protein for a new one. This way, you know what the flavor should taste like, and you can make seasoning adjustments to get it as close to the original as possible.
This depends on how the meat is prepared. The game meats sold at the grocery store are extremely safe to consume, as long as they're prepared correctly. Previous research showed some concern about pregnant women consuming game meats regularly. Certain health agencies recommended that pregnant women and children avoid consumption of game meats harvested with lead bullets. However, these types of meat are not sold in grocery stores, so there's no need to worry about the possibility of lead.
