Protein: Are you getting enough?

Anna Cortesi Blog

A common dietary dilemma is that you may be trying to cut back on high-fat products that are rich in protein, especially plant-based-protein-rich foods like seeds and nuts, but it is doing you no favors if you are trying to adopt a healthier nutritious plan. This is because; you are missing important protein components. Your body does need proteins and eliminating it from your diet in order to avoid fat may be an unforgiving mistake. Switching full to lean sources of animal protein is a no-no, especially with cardiovascular diseases and cancer on the rise – so what is a  health-foodie supposed to do? 

If you experience any of the following symptoms, consider searching for the right types of dietary protein within your daily diet; feeling mentally and physically tired all day, muscle cramps, lack of concentration, abnormally susceptible to sunburn, breakage of nails, suffering from continuous headaches or nausea, feeling too cranky and moody. Experiencing these symptoms are a definitive indication that you are running low on protein levels that are ideally required by your body. And to get tis right, I’m not talking about going huge with protein sources and supplements, what I am talking about is that essential 20-25 percent of energy your body needs coming from protein.

To overcome the fear of gaining weight, digesting  animal proteins, cholesterol and fats, or if you simply want to go plant based, you need to also opt for plant-based proteins. Search for foods like tofu and other seafood, nuts, whole grain dishes, beans, wheat-rich meals, quinoa and pasta. If you are looking for creative ideas, surf through the web and get instant recipes. Look for vegetable kebabs, whole-grain pancakes, baked apples, noodles with stir-fried asparagus and cashews and much more. Before you decide to change your daily diet plan, you must first work on changing the way you think. Do not go for typical meals, like a high-protein dish with baked potato as a side serving and a few green vegetables. Think out of the box and incorporate plant-based food components in every meal of the day. Snack up during meals so that you do not end up consuming food in a large quantities. Search #wholefoods, #macrobowl and #veggiebowl on social media to get an idea of the most nutritious meal.

Just remember, a good nutritious diet is the one that incorporates all food components in an entirely balanced manner. Enjoy eating everything, but in proportionate quantities.
