What Protein Should I take?
Protein is an important part of maintaining our healthy bodies, but how do we get it and what does it do?
It seems the unfortunate and often scary reality of today is that fast food and processed foods are growing increasingly popular. Let’s face it, they’re quick, convenient and not all that expensive.
Manufactured to the extent that all nutritional value seems ineffective, modern society has embraced a calibre of food that insults our need for high quality protein. So where can we find these amazing protein sources?
Animal based proteins are an excellent and often delicious source of high quality protein. Ranging from different meats, poultry, fish, eggs and dairy products, there is much variety for picky eaters.
Vegetarian? Not a problem! Protein is also a rich source from plant foods although they need to be eaten in the correct combination to ensure you get the optimal protein levels you need.
Our recommended protein sources include
- Skinless chicken (free range, hormone free)
- Lean beef, veal & lamb
- Skinless turkey
- Fresh fish fillets
- Lean pork
- Eggs (free range, hormone free)
- Canned fish (tuna, salmon & sardines) in spring water
- Seafood (mussels, calamari, prawns, etc.)
Vegetarian proteins; combine the following with whole grains such as wheat, rice, quinoa, millet & corn. Alternatively, combine with nuts & seeds to provide a high quality protein:
- Kidney, Cannelini, Black & Soy Beans with nuts
- Tofu & Tempeh
