Protein

๐—ช๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฃ๐—ฅ๐—ข๐—ง๐—˜๐—œ๐—ก? Protein is one of the three essential macronutrients our body needs to function properly. Proteins are made up of aminos acids - 9 of these amino acids are needed for all the rest of amino acid and protein builds (i.e. essential) but our bodies cannot make these 9 essential amino acids and therefore we MUST get them from our diets.

Proteins provide many of the essential functions in our body - building and repairing muscle and bones, regulating and coordinating bodily functions, transporting and storing nutrients, providing energy, aiding in digestion and immune system supportโ€ฆto name a few.

So you might be thinking โ€œcool, protein is important and I need to get it from my diet. But how do I do that ?!โ€ Eat a variety of both plant and animal-based proteins to make sure you are getting all 9 essential amino acids. Include a high-protein food at every meal. Snack on protein-rich foods like cheese, Greek yogurt, nuts, edamame, or lean jerky. Incorporate a protein supplement, such as a protein shake, into at least one meal a day.
