Lamb and beef have similar calories, total fat, protein, vitamin, and mineral content—but lamb (especially grass-fed lamb) is the winner when it comes to omega-3 fat content. Grass-fed lamb also has higher quantities of the healthy fat CLA, which is beneficial for cognitive, cardiovascular, and metabolic health. Ground lamb plays well with strong spices, like cumin, fennel, and chili flakes. The best part, though, is how a little bit goes a long way because it’s so rich. Priced per pound.
