Our nutritionist’s top 5 reasons to eat more protein this year:

  1. Protein helps your body recover from exercise, giving your muscles the fuel they need to repair properly.
  2. Protein is in every cell in the body and it’s vital for healthy hair, nails and skin.
  3. Protein can speed up your metabolism, and it takes more energy for your body to process than carbohydrates.
  4. Antibodies are made of protein, and are a really important part of our immune system (it may even give you a fighting chance against colds).
  5. And there’s loads of tasty natural ways of getting protein in your diet, without relying on powders and shakes.
