HABIT OF THE MONTH – To have a palm-sized portion of protein with each meal 🍗🍣🍳
Protein has many vital functions in our bodies. Protein repairs and replaces structures like muscles, bones, connective tissue, skin, hair and nails, to name a few. Therefore, eating adequate protein promotes muscle building and recovery as well as helps us to look and feel younger. What’s more, Protein is the most satiating macronutrient, meaning it keeps you fuller for longer, thus should be prioritised if you’re trying to stick to a calorie-restricted diet. So whether your goal is fat loss, muscle building, performance or simply health and well-being, Protein should be a staple in your diet.
Here are just a few good Protein sources you could try:
- Lean Mincemeat
- Egg whites
- Whey protein supplements
