Health Tips:

  • Lamb chops are a rich source of protein and Vitamin B12, which is necessary for blood formation. They are also rich in zinc and niacin.
  • The very high fat content (including high saturated fat) of lamb chops makes them a restricted food for weight watchers, and people with heart disease or diabetes.
  • Restrict consumption to not more than one serving per week, to avoid the risk of getting gallstones and obesity.
  • To reduce the calories and fat content of this recipe, decrease the amount of olive oil used for the marinade to one tablespoon.
  • The garlic and onion used in the recipe are a good source of ‘allyl sulphides’ – helpful compounds which reduce the risk of cancer and blockages in the arteries. They have also been beneficial in alleviating the symptoms of cold and flu.
