Why do we need protein?
Protein isn’t just for bodybuilders! If you’re trying to get active and move more this year, protein is your new best friend. Many people who work out often look for “smart fuel” and “workout recovery” foods -- this simply means foods that are high in protein and a source of essential amino acids which help repair and strengthen muscles.
Protein is a macronutrient which we need to be active. In fact, protein is part of every single cell in your body! Protein is key to the cells that will help you enjoy healthier skin, thicker hair, stronger nails, lean muscle and tone, healthy digestive tract, tough immune system and so much more. In addition to protein, carbohydrates, fiber and healthy fats are also important! All of these help replace worn out cells to aid muscle growth and repair.Read More
