10 Foods High in Protein

Ever find yourself worn out at the end of the day and can’t figure out why?
September 27th, 2013 by: Maria Muro

You’ve been eating plenty of leafy greens, getting in your whole grains, and drinking lots of water, but you’re tired all the same.

If this is happening to you, it may be that you’re not getting enough protein! Protein is a macronutrient, which means we need to eat enough of it every day in order to function well. As our bodies break down protein, its amino acid components play vital roles in immune function, structure and movement. Unlike fats and carbohydrates, the body does not store protein.
