National Nutrition Month Facts – Proteins

 

With any food group, always practice variety and moderation. Daily recommendations depend on factors such as age, sex and physical activity. Proteins can be a great source of nutrients such as B Vitamins, Iron and Magnesium. But you should watch your intake on cholesterol and saturated fat.

It’s also important to note that protein isn’t just meat but has vegetarian-safe options too such as nuts, lentils and soy products.
