5 reasons to increase your protein

A Day in the Life Food Health & Fitness Recipes Things We Love Tried & Tested

I have been using protein powder for the last 4 years. I always knew that protein was an essential macro in our diets, but until I had a coach work with me on my macros, I never had enough.

A go to source was always a protein bar, and still is, but now to ensure that I am getting close to my bodyweight in protein, I’ve started adding protein powders to my diet. Sometimes its to replace my breakfast, sometimes its next to a meal, and sometimes its adding additional protein to recipes.

Here are 5 reasons why you should increase your protein intake:

  1. Increasing your protein intake can help you build and maintain muscle mass. This can help you look and feel stronger while promoting better overall health.
  2.  Protein is essential for healthy hair and nails, and can help keep them looking their best.
  3. Protein is an important nutrient for a healthy immune system. Eating enough protein can help your body fight off infections and illnesses.
  4. Eating enough protein can help you to feel full for longer. This can help you manage your weight and avoid overeating.
  5. Protein is important for healthy skin, bones, and organs. Eating enough protein can help ensure that your body is functioning properly and can help you look and feel your best.

I’ve written a post about some of my favorite protein bars as well as share some protein shake recipes HERE.

I also have shared my opinion on plant based vs whey protein.  I’ll share soon why as a Cancer survivor, I choose vegan protein.

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
