Healthy, because

Even smarter

Tender rack of lamb with fresh herbs on a bed of colourful vegetables - the perfect dish for low-carb fans! In addition, the lamb not only has plenty of protein, but also zinc. The trace element helps the immune cells to fulfil their tasks and provides for beautiful skin and hair.

Less, but better: this is the best way to go in terms of meat consumption. So ideally buy meat from grazing or walking lamb or from an organic farm. This is not only more appropriate to the species, but also healthier. Because grass feed means that this meat contains more anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids and less inflammation-promoting omega-6 fatty acids.

2 Rack of lamb (ready to cook, each about 400 grams)
4 sprigs parsley
3 sprigs thyme
2 sprigs rosemary
