How much protein do you eat a day?

What types of proteins do you eat?

What are your favorite protein dishes?

Our bodies need protein for our muscles, skin, hair and internal organs. Protein travels through our bodies in blood as hormones, red blood cells and enzymes.

Why we need protein:

  • Anti bodies that consist of protein are essential in helping our bodies fight/resist diseases
  • You need protein daily to keep your body functioning
  • Protein is needed to help heal or repair the body from injurires
  • Has chains of 22 amino acids, 8 of which are essential to our bodies because we cannot make them

I eat plenty of protein: usually 2 eggs for breakfast, at least 2 oz. of protein at lunch, and definitely 1/4 to 1/3 of the dinner plate is protein. We eat eggs, beef, pork, poultry, and fish, along with cheese. No legumes here.
