Updated: Mar 19



COOKBOOK: Delicious - Valli Little

There was nothing that I didnt love about this recipe. I could have this every day! Delicious & simple to make.

Lamb has a large source of iron (more than chicken and fish), and in addition it provides essential amino acids, zinc and vitamin B6. They say eating lamb may promote muscle growth and in addition prevent anemia.

Peas are not always loved by all. Keep in mind they also are a very nutritional vegetable. They’re full of vitamin C , E, zinc and other antioxidants that strengthen your immune system. They help prevent arthritis, inflammation and lower your risk of chronic decease. Dont leave these little beauties out of your diet.


Enjoy
