Some High-quality Protein Sources.

I am an LPN who ate my way back to health. Read my continuing story about researching a different kind of nutrition. I used food as my medicine.

The Value of Protein.

Protein is one of the major types of nutrients in the human diet.  Protein is built  from  a large combination of twenty-two Amino Acids.  Your protein needs vary according to activity level. Of all the twenty-two amino acids, there are eight, which cannot be synthesized by the body and must be obtained through the diet. 

Fat and Protein can be used to produce energy, their primary function is to provide building blocks for tissues, hormones, enzymes, and other structures for the human body.

I know we are talking about Protein but it is all interconnected, you’ll see. That is if I explain it right.

I love my carbohydrates, but most diets restrict their intake. After reading Dr. Fife and Dr. Mercola, I found a very neat answer.

I can continue to eat bread! I can continue to eat pasta! I can continue to eat my carbs!
