Offal v steak and chicken?

Hey guys. I was wondering what you think is superior in terms of nutritional profile, things like liver, lamb hearts and kidneys versus things like chicken breast, steak and lean mince?

I normally only have chicken and sweet potato and kale everyday but now I will be cooking for more than one I have to make things taste pretty good, while on a budget that needs to be kept.

My family all ahve different tasted but the one thing we always all love is hotpot. I was thinking a slowcooked hotpot with white potato on top would be a paleoish meal and taste superb.

With my current level of trainibng though I need at least one gram of protein per pound of bodyweight and I am not sure I will hit is with only cheap cuts and things like lamb hearts, which seem quite low in protein compared to their counterparts.

Also any recipies for things like heart, tongue, liver etc will be appreciated.

Agreed, same goes for red meat and saturated fat.

A little bit of offal goes a long way. 4-6 ounces per week is more than sufficient, assuming a nutrient-rich plant-dominated diet otherwise.

they all have different areas where one is optimal over the other.

For high protein, low fat go chicken

For high protein, high fat go beef

Offal has good protein, but it's real value is in the nutrients, Vitamins A, B, and D, CoQ10, Iron, Copper, zinc, and a variety of amino acids...

I suggest, as always, eat diversely

I am thinking of changing from the Rob Wolf paleo thing to a primal thing with some full fat milk and cream as well. I also eat a shit tonne of fruit which is pretty cheap and enjoyable when I am running low on cash. This is one of those times haha.
