Something I’ve learned about recently…
My hubby has been preaching to me for YEARS that I don’t get enough protein in my daily diet. (I really am not a huge fan of meat or nuts)
I had no idea how important protein was until I started researching it for myself…honestly, I was hoping to prove him wrong.
And actually, all I did was prove myself wrong and him right! You actually are “supposed” to get around 0.36 grams of protein per pound each day!!! 😳😳
Protein is needed for:
✅ building and repairing cells
✅healthy hair, nails, skin and more
✅maintaining a healthy weight and creating lean muscle
My kids drink a protein shake every day (they looove it!) and I’m going to join them! I just ran 1.5 miles and am drinking my favorite all-natural chocolate shake with whole milk (no shame here – I seriously don’t like the other kinds of “milk!”
Post Run Meal:
💥20 grams protein
💥3 grams of leucine
💥only 3 grams of carbs
💥only 1 gram of sugar
💥no artificial flavors, sweeteners or preservatives
❓❓❓who else is with me and comes no where close to eating the amount of protein you should in a day? (I need 55grams a day! 😳😬)
