Mbuzi choma: Why you should take it this weekend


Why goat meat is good for you

Mbuzi choma, matumbo, karanga … these are just some of the popular items you are likely to find in a Kenyan hotel menu.

But nyama choma rules them all when it comes to weekend getaway joints in and around Nairobi.

Goat meat is not only delicious but also nutritious. Also known as mutton, it is one of the most nutritious red meats around. No wonder your in-laws demand several goats before letting go of their daughter.

Here are reasons why you should eat goat meat this weekend:

Prevents anemia

Goat meat has more iron than beef and chicken, making it such a delicacy among women.

Anti-cancer properties

The Conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) helps stop tumour formation and inflammation, making it a strong anti-cancer agent. Mbuzi Choma also supplies you with selenium, a nutrient that is known to prevent and stop the development of prostate, lung, stomach, and skin cancers.

Good for the heart

Goat meat has low levels of cholesterol compared to beef, pork, and chicken. It also contains high levels of heart-friendly omega-3 and omega-6 fats that help prevent cardiovascular disease. This type of meat also helps stabilise the heartbeat.

Good for the unborn baby

It is recommended to pregnant women as it helps prevent birth defects in the unborn baby.

Reduces menstrual cramps

Goat meat helps reduce menstrual cramping due to its high levels of manganese, selenium, and iron.

Gives you glowy skin

When you eat goat meat, you are supplying the body with Vitamin B12 and E which help prevent skin problems such as eczema, psoriasis and acne.

Natural stress reliever

The high traces of Vitamin B12 in goat meat helps lift the mood, making it a natural stress reliever.
