Quote of the Day

Healthy Diet Habit Tip of the Day 
or a Recipe of the Day

Protein is a macronutrient that is essential for health, and is considered the building block of the body. All of your body parts are built, using protein. It is made up of 20 amino acids. Your body can manufacture 11 of these, but you must get the other 9 essential amino acids from the foods that you eat.

Protein is a macronutrient that is essential for health, and is considered the building block of the body. All of your body parts are built, using protein.

Animal proteins, contain all of the amino acids, but vegetable proteins do not, therefore if you are a vegetarian or vegan, it is important to eat a large variety of fruits, vegetables, beans, nuts, seeds and grains.
