Lamb meat: nutritional properties, benefits, and recipes
Lamb takes pride of place on the Italian table on Easter days when it appears in many different recipes depending on the region. In fact, it should be part of your diet throughout the year, as an alternative to other types of white meat, such as chicken or turkey.
Lamb meat is light, substantial, and digestible. If you are careful to choose the one coming from small and medium-sized farms, with an important zootechnical tradition behind them – like those of Abruzzo, a region always devoted to sheep farming and sheep breeding – you will ensure certain taste and benefits.
