National Nutrition Month Challenge: Picking Protein

For the fourth and final week of the challenge, we'll be talking all about protein. This macronutrient gets lots of time in the media. From exercise to weight loss to vegetarian and vegan diets, it seems like everyone is talking about it. Protein is essential in our diet as it provides the building blocks for things like tissue repair, growth, making hormones. This week, I'll be writing about protein sources, how much protein we need, and also posting some recipes. Good luck in this final week and happy cooking! With love,
