Lamb for Pork?

I was recently gifted a cookbook that has a few dishes that say "pork/lamb". Is this a usual sub, or maybe only for a few dishes, or is this just a weird book? Is lamb really any more healthy than pork?

The substitution is most likely to accomodate dietary restrictions for religious reasons, not for health concerns over pork.

Lots of recipes work with a number of different proteins. It's probably not recommending a sub, it's saying you can choose which protein you like better. I bet you could use chicken, too.
Less is not more. More is more and more is fabulous.

almost all recipes that call for ground meat now list pork, beek, lamb, chicken, and turkey.
