Is it ok to eat the fat/rind that comes on pork/lamb chops?
I find it the tastiest bit of the meat but am keen to learn if it is really ok to do so although i do keep it to a bare minimum!

I personally love it & wolf it down without a second thought, it's part of the animal. I'm sure our ancestors didn't separate the fat from the meat & i'm not about to start either. As long as its from a healthy animal(free range/grass fed) i wouldn't worry about it. I render my own lard from pork skin & enjoy the cracklings with salt & pepper. Enjoy my friend.

The fat is good - and the rind is a great source of gelatin, collegen etc. Go for it!

we are commanded not to eat PORK, it is an unclean animal, they clean up our world, like garbage trucks, they have some 70 diseases in there flesh alone, buzzards won't even eat them when they die, but they are essential to our environment, they absorb bacteria to keep the barnyard clean for the other animals. As far as the fat, of any animal, THE FATHER says DO NOT EAT THE FAT, OR THE BLOOD, they belong to HIM. Bottom feeders in our waters are the same as pigs, they clean up the ocean floors, and rivers, if they don't have fins & scales, DON'T EAT THEM!
