Pally's Festive Choice: Roast Beef Or Roast Lamb

10 more days to Christmas! Bet all of you are already in the holiday mood!

Today's selection is a tough one.


Both types of meat are high in protein and iron. However, roast beef might very well be healthier than lamb due to its cholesterol content.

If we compare an equivalent type of lean meat portion, beef probably has about 83mg of cholesterol per 100g of meat, compared to 97mg per 100g of lamb, according to Ms. Jaclyn Reutens, a dietitian at Aptima Nutrition and Sports Consultants. 

Fat saturation levels are also slightly lesser at 3.4g per 100g compared to the lamb at 3.5g of saturated fat per 100g.

So which is healthier? Pally's choice goes to the Roast Beef! Coz we enjoy our steaks!

Pally Healthy Tip: Go for the leaner cuts of meat. An easy rule to find lean beef quickly is to look for anything with “round,” “chuck” or “loin” in its name. They are usually either extra lean or lean.
