This may be hard for some people to hear, but rabbit meat is delicious, nutritious, and a cheap and easy meat source to produce. It has a relatively low environmental impact, making it a much "greener" form of protein than other meat sources.    For these reasons, and many more, rabbit meat is gaining in popularity.

Rabbit meat has fewer calories and less fat and cholesterol than chicken, turkey, beef, pork or lamb.  It also has the lowest sodium content and it is high, (second only to turkey), in protein value.
