This lamb chops recipe is a fantastic savory dish that is high in healthy fats and protein and low in carbs. If you are looking for a great fat burning dinner dish than pair this up with some great vegetable side dishes and you have an amazing meal!
Lamb is a great free range meat that is rich in zinc, selenium, iron and B12. In addition, it is rich in mitochondrial enhancing nutrients such as CoQ10, carnitine, creatine and carnosine. The lime zest, rosemary and basil provide great flavor and antioxidant compounds that neutralize free radicals formed during the cooking process.
I like to combine this dish with our cauliflower keto mashed potatoes and buttered broccoli or garlic herb green beans for a balanced keto meal. If you are looking for more great keto meal ideas than check out our complete Navigating the Ketogenic Diet program here
