Fill up on nutrient-rich, delicious protein to help maintain a strong and healthy body throughout the year
It’s no secret that a good source of protein is essential for a healthy body, especially if you're thinking about upping your exercise routine. This hard-working nutrient helps to build tissue and cells and is particularly important in helping muscles recover and grow after working out.
Some foods are naturally richer in protein than others, such as eggs and fish. A medium egg has around 6g of protein so it makes a great pre-gym breakfast or recovery snack. Salmon is also a good option as it’s typically low in fat and high in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
