The Fat That Makes You Thin is in Every Grassfed Lamb Loin Chop Recipe

As you serve a grassfed lamb loin chop recipe to you family, know that it can help them lose weight.

There is a substance in the meat of grassfed animals called CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) that is necessary to metabolize fatty foods. CLA is called the good fat and the fat that makes you slim. Research shows that CLA's job is to turn the fats we eat into muscle and energy. And without CLA the fat we eat simply turns to flab!

A hint about mint in this first recipe for grassfed lamb loin chops: You can grow it in your own garden, but watch out! It can take over. My wife says it's best to plant mint in some isolated corner of your property. When she was pulling the excess mint out of our garden the kids had to pack armloads of the stuff, carry it down to our pasture and let it get started there. Mint grows profusely and makes a tasty seasoning for any lamb loin chop recipe.
