Have you ever been at a crossroads deciding which meat is best for you?

Meats are a great source of animal protein. But first, let's get the word meat clarified. Often misunderstood by many, meat isn't only cow meat. Meat can be the edible flesh and food source of any animal (mammal or bird) - cow, goat, sheep, pig, chicken, etc. Meats from all these animals have specific names.
