For many people, lamb has a long tradition as the featured food for Easter dinner. Opt for organic and/or grass-fed lamb whenever possible to ensure you're getting meat with the least amount of preservatives, nitrates, antibiotics or hormones. Grass-fed lamb can also contain valuable amounts of CLA (conjugated linoleic acid), a health supportive fatty acid. Lamb is also fattier than beef or chicken, so be sure to trim off any extra fat before cooking to keep the meat as lean as possible.
