Oregano Lamb Chops

by Simla on January 18, 2011

This is a favorite recipe among my Delicious Cleanse clients. What is red meat doing on a Cleanse, you may ask? Well, this is no ordinary cleanse. No deprivation or unrealistic juice- or smoothie-based detoxing or dieting here! It’s designed, instead, to help you transition to a way of eating that revolves around natural, whole foods and a sustainable, healthier way of eating that will support your body’s innate healing capabilities and balance.

Lamb, especially when purchased as grass-fed, antibiotic- and hormone-free, is a great choice of protein for busy people who have busy bodies – stress, nutrient deficiencies, and blood sugar imbalances in particular. Lamb is also usually a “safe” meat as compared to beef, which may trigger food intolerances or sensitivities in more people. A higher quality meat will have fewer heart-harmful fatty acids (like arachidonic acid) and higher levels of heart-healthy fats (omega-3 fats). And while lamb is a fattier meat when compared to poultry and game such as buffalo or ostrich, the fats in lamb will also help you feel fuller, satiating your appetite, and support your brain and adrenal glands, which are hard-working glands in your body that control your stress response, manage inflammation, and contribute to the production of sex hormones.
