Slow-Cooked Lamb with Mint & Green Beans

Have you decided what to cook on todqay? Tender and juicy lamb leg cooked in a slow cooker with herbs and spices is super easy and simple - you'll only need a few common ingredients. Apart from being delicious, lamb is perfect for the keto diet because it's naturally high in fat.

This recipe requires a slow cooker. If you are serious about healthy eating, you should consider getting a slow cooker or a pressure cooker. I use it on a regular basis to cook meat I get from my local farm: lamb, mutton, beef and pork. A slow cooker is not just convenient but [you'll also save money,]((/Blog/post/2014/10/08/Keto-Diet-on-a-Budget-Meal-Preparation-Tips) as it's great for cooking inexpensive yet delicious cuts of meat such as brisket, pork shoulder, oxtail, etc. If you don't have a slow cooker / crock pot, you can use a dutch oven or bake it in a regular oven.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
