07 Jul Shepherd’s Pride at IDEA World Convention
About 15,000 health & wellness pros attended the global fitness expo in L.A. where thousands learned about the nutrition and raising protocols of Shepherd’s Pride American Lamb, the only third-party, source-verified American lamb never ever administered antibiotics, hormones or artificial ingredients. Generation after generation families raise these sheep with care and experience, knowing how to dependably deliver the best tasting, freshest, wholesome lamb.
More and more athletes and fitness pros are incorporating pure American lamb into training and recovery regimens as they understand what makes it a lean, clean, nutrient-packed protein.
Kathy Kaehler, an internationally renowned fitness authority who has trained A-list celebrities, served as the Today Show Fitness Correspondent, and been inducted into the National Fitness Hall of Fame, tells her fans and followers why she is a BIG fan of Mountain States lamb.
I have spent years studying health and fitness. Watching food documentaries, reading blogs, researching articles and learning the importance of clean living has become an obsession. However, my focus was for learning the best ways to obtain ideal body weight and to be fit as a fiddle. During my [hip surgery] recovery, I have had more time to truly appreciate the significance and partnership of making optimal lifestyle choices as they are a direct reflection of how the body functions inside and out.
For example, if you are dehydrated your body has to compensate and heal from the destructive damage the lack of water has caused. Headaches, poor urination, dizziness, dry skin, lethargy to cramping and possible convulsions. Your choices in what you eat, how you move, how you rest and hydrate yourself are key to optimal physical health.
Everyday we look for food that tastes good and good for us, but shouldn’t we be asking questions about the food? What is it made of? Where did it come from? Is it nutrient dense and able to give the body the vitamins and minerals it needs? Take for example your choice in protein, a vital macronutrient. Everyone has their own idea of what is best, which is why I am excited to share my discovery. I am a meat eater, but I am a very, very picky meat eater. I want to know where it comes from, what it eats, how it was treated, if it had a great life with only one bad day, if it is nutrient rich and has never been given antibiotics. I made this discovery about a year ago and it is American lamb. Talk about a nutrient rich, nutritious choice of protein. Get this, a 3oz serving of American lamb (yes, American lamb) is packed with 47% protein, 38% selenium, 21% riboflavin, 37% Vit. B12, 27% niacin, 10% iron and 30% zinc. Remember all the jobs our body has? Well all of these nutrients promote normal functioning cells and nerves, aides in digestion, promotes healthy skin, helps red blood cells carry oxygen to and from other cells, helps form enzymes and insulin and so much more. Not to mention lamb has five times more omega3 fatty acid than beef. Plus another bonus, it’s easy to make. Here is a super recipe from my pal Jamie Oliver. Lamb Recipe
So you can see how important our food choices are, as they go well beyond the calories! Let’s heal our precious vehicles that take us through life each and every day. Never before have I felt the power and passion in the words… make good choices in how you eat, move, rest, and hydrate.
Here’s to healthy living!
