Is a Feast Compatible with Good Health?
In every celebration, we can enjoy an exceptionally healthy meat. A lamb, less than a year old and fed with grass is very soft and exquisite and is compatible with the paleodiet. It is very rich in various nutrients, such as protein, iron, vitamin B3 and B12, zinc, selenium, niacin and is low in saturated fats. Now, how to preserve it before cooking it? If you are not going to consume it on the day of purchase, place it in a dish and covered with a cloth that allows the meat to breathe. You can also cover the piece with oil, rubbing it in once a day, always inside the fridge. So you can keep the meat two or three days in the coldest part of the refrigerator, at 4 degrees Celsius. And with respect to the goat cheese that is part of our recipe: it is a delicious cheese that is suitable for lactose intolerant people because it barely has casein which is the main component that can cause dairy product intolerance. Accompany your dinner with a good red wine, bon appetit!
