It is economical to breed rabbit because they are known for their insatiable reproductive habits for good economical reason. They breed three to four times each year. This is because only 15 percent of baby rabbits make it to their first birthday, as they are a preferred breed of protein for people who recognize what they are worth. Although some people say that nothing beats the taste of chicken, a person who has tasted a slice of yummy bunny rabbit would not agree with this statement.
Rabbit meat is well known for its high protein content which is even higher than what is available in beef or chicken. Rabbit meat also provides a wide range of minerals, containing like 204 mg of phosphorus and 292 mg of potassium according to nutritionists. It is rich in proteins and has an extremely low percentage of fats which makes it the best meat for dieting and muscle building.
One should consider consuming rabbit meat with a serving of vegetables or any kind of soup/stew along with a healthy side attraction like fufu, eba, tuwo, or amala etc.
A serving of rabbit stew contains far fewer calories than the same size portion of beef and pork. Research shows that meat is cholesterol-free.
