Protein Power For Your Day
Hmmm…..What do I know about protein? Well, a lot, but yet maybe not enough.
We know the incredible benefits of protein. Eating whole foods and especially healthy protein is a natural thing for our bodies and part of our history through the generations of family before us. Our parents and grandparents ate protein as a staple, but we have somehow strayed from this lifestyle into the convenient processed fast food lifestyle. What a shame. What choices of food we eat makes an incredible difference in our daily life. This everyday choice affects our LIFE directly because it affects our ENERGY, the BALANCE of our body’s systems and processes, and it affects our STAMINA and even our OUTLOOK for the day.
Unfortunately, the food industry is not helping us out in this regard. Our food supply has become more watered down than ever and actually is filled with things we don’t even need or want (extra sugar, dyes, artificial ingredients, and fillers of all kind, many hidden even in the labels we are reading!). We are all super busy and we do our absolute best each day, but deep inside, we all know we could do BETTER. We don’t have to harp on that or be hard on ourselves, we just have to keep striving to eat foods that are closer to nature…whole foods, foods we prepare ourselves from scratch. Each day is a NEW day to improve our health, eat healthy protein, increase our food’s nutritional value and in the process literally gain more LIFE!!
It’s all about getting back to the basics and treating our body to exactly what it needs. It’s so easy! It’s not just convenience and buying the latest greatest processed and perfectly packaged and marketed food that we have been sold on. It’s taking that extra step feeding ourselves and our family what our body can actually utilize and build on. Educating yourself on healthy alternatives to processed foods. A little bit of knowledge goes a long way and toward long lasting health.
We need to eat everyday anyway, why not pick something healthy that sustains you. Whatever your meal consists of, focus first on a healthy protein as the center, allow yourself some healthy fats and a few healthy carbs to fill it out, then it’s a perfect meal. Or whip up a whey protein shake. They are easy and super healthy feeding your body the protein it needs.
