Protein is one of the essentials of your diet intake of foods, but nowadays some of us like to add a little extra to help
us through our busy days especially if you go to a gym too. In some cases cutting down on carbohydrates and replacing them with protein-based foods might be better for you in the long run.
We are not experts or asking you to eat an extra helping of meat, as that is a main sauce of protein. There are others, eggs, dairy, fish, and for vegans nuts and pulses, all with a varying degree of protein content.
So just changing your diet slightly by taking out some carbohydrates such as pasta, potatoes, or rice and adding a cooked egg could help sustain a more healthy lifestyle especially those who workout at a gym on a regular basis.
Next time you’re cooking up a beef bolognese, maybe only cook a third of the amount of pasta but add a tin of borlotti beans to your bolognese. In this way you are adding more protein to your diet but not in the form of red meat.
Starting the day well might make you feel better in yourself with a handful of fresh berries, to give you some fruit sugars for energy, combined with natural yoghurt, nut granola and again a sprinkle of extra almonds.
Please be careful when focusing on weight loss and using fat-free foods, somewhat surprisingly, some use extra sugars for taste and can be misleading. A good breakfast can set you up for the day and is a good way to start.
As we have said, we are no experts in nutrition, but would like to think taking a sensible approach to what you might eat, taking out a few foods or just cutting down, is a good place to start.
Create food to enjoy, this way you might enjoy what you eat.
