    I'm a Kiwi - never had to have anyone give me a reason to eat roast lamb :happy:, ditto mutton.

    (But yes - very important not to bond with those delightful little happy creatures before they get mutilated, and then, yes, killed to be eaten.:()

    I used to have a workmate/friend who was extra soppy - she wouldn't eat anything that had lived if you gave it a "personal" name even if it was sitting cooked on her plate! :wideyed:

    And although I don't eat serious keto I've never even considered that protein might even be an issue.

    Who is truly evil and used to tell one of her puppies that I could just eat his plump little thigh....

    And we should take that literally since protein is essential for our bodies' repair and maintenance...

    I would like a dollar for every lamb, hogget, sheep I cut up in thirty years in the meat industry, same applies to pigs and cattle.
