    icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Hajar, you really do your research well!! I read through that -- never knew that the US imported so much lamb from New Zealand. It's all very interesting.

    Now I must confess that South Africans of all skin colours are great meat eaters. I always ask for the meaty shanks, from the back leg part. Husband and I can't really finish one each -- there are always leftovers -- but I promise you, I get guests who "polish" a whole large shank!!

    (By the way, it is so interesting that many research scientists now say, eat your chicken skin, your goose fat, your piece of fatty lamb. Apparently we should eat like our forefathers did: the good foods God/Allah gave us: butter, milk, meat, eggs!! The fats contain Co-enzyme Q10, which is vitally necessary for heart health ... Oh, it's a long story, and of course one should not go overboard and start eating a lot of fatty meats! It's just that I've always been so irritated by the "food police", who pops up with new advice every week! I've always believed one should eat everything in moderation!) rotfl.gif

    icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif Okay, Hajar, when you come back, I hope you read this: I'm also a Virgo!! That makes us bosom pals, or what do you think?? icon_biggrin.gif

    I also hate and detest margarine! I don't use it. Here in South Africa we have perfectly good butter-and-oil or butter-and-milk-solids (or something like that) mixtures for spreading on bread -- always soft. Otherwise, it's plain butter, whose only problem is that in summer it gets too soft outside the fridge and too hard inside!

    My father is now 93. He grew up on rendered animal fats, especially pork fat (which is soft and white). He comes from a time when a lot of fatty meats were eaten -- doesn't seem to have done him any harm!

    Anyway, I am NOT advocating gobbling on meats and fats. My blood sugar is also somewhat high, but I still believe in eating the good foods of the earth.

    By the way, Hajar, there is an American product on the market called Cellfood -- drops you take in a small amount of distilled (not ordinary) water every morning. It's an amazing product and brings down blood sugar. I'm taking it, but haven't had my blood sugar tested in many moons ... It's also good for fatigue and just about everything else including cancer patients. They have a website but I can't remember it.

    Miss you already. icon_confused.gif

    Now I moved from Britain to Canada so already ate lamb and several other meats mentioned by Hajar. But I too have found that many Canadians I meet and many from the US don't like lamb and certainly won't touch kidneys from whatever animal. So I wonder where all these lamb eating North Americans have got to icon_biggrin.gif

    This is a pity as it is difficult in my part of Canada to buy lamb at a reasonable price. I mostly end up with a lamb leg when I see them on special.
