Are you having friends or family over, but don’t know what to cook because you want to cook something nice while staying true to your diet and macros? No need to despair, this meal is made for this predicament. It tastes delicious while you stay within your macros, this is a true feast!
For this meal you want tender meat, with lamb (and all animals really..) the best way to get that is if the animals eat their natural food sources, in this case grass and other fauna, and move around freely in the mountains and work those muscles. As strong believers in animal well-fare we believe that a happy animal with a good life is important. This is also why we have a policy in our house to never throw away any animal products, it all has to be eaten.
