Getting enough protein is a common dietary concern and for good reason. Protein is required by every cell in our bodies, essential for building everything from hormones to muscles.
Contrary to popular belief, meals don’t need to include a large piece of meat to meet your protein needs – and you don’t have to rely on soy or heavily processed fake “meats” either. Many plant-based foods are good sources of protein. Eating a wide variety of whole, unprocessed foods each day will put you well on the way to meeting your daily protein intake – no tofu dogs required!
