In Grill Yourself Skinny Heidi writes "When I was working with the NY Giants footbal team, I learned about Cervena, farm-raised venison from New Zealand.  Because the venison is farm raised, there is no gamey taste.  Instead these greass-fed, open-range animals produce very lean red meat - providing all the benefits of micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) but with a much healthier fat profile.  I loved it, the players loved it and so have all my clients who have since tried it."

Here are a couple of the recipes from Heidi's book for you to try:
