I am chronically anemic. It's a real drag and I've been taking iron supplements for years now. I eat meat but for some reason my body just doesn't absorb all the iron that I need. Any suggestion?
Anyway, I've been trying to eat healthier meats and I think lamb has become my new favorite. The thing about lamb is that they (the huge-o food indurty folks) haven't figured out a way to feed lamb grains and plump them up in inhumane ways so for now all lambs are grass fed. I get my lamb at Costco because it's inexpensive, compared to other places, and the quality is just as good.
If you haven't tried lamb yet or if you're unsure how to cook it I suggest making this stew because all you need to do is throw everything in the crock-pot and it's easy to make variations to this recipe adding ingredients that you like. I made this a couple nights ago after taking care of 2 kids solo all day. So I just added 2 of everything that I had in my fridge. This is what happens when I'm exhausted and can't think complicated things like measurements beyond 2. This is also when I bust out my crock-pot.
