A salad is not complete without protein
By Lindsay Mustard, CNP
A common mistake that I see a lot of my clients making is under eating on protein. The most important macronutrient that we need to support our metabolism, muscle mass and to provide a sustained source of energy for our bodies throughout the day.
Next time you sit down to enjoy a hearty salad, make sure that you have a healthy source of protein to pair with it. By adding a bit of chicken, tuna, salmon or plant-based source of protein such as hemp hearts, it will keep you fuller for longer and keep your sugar cravings at bay until your next meal.
Use the diagram below to learn about each macronutrient and which of them overlap and serve as two sources. I encourage you to ensure that you have a pure source of protein at each meal and a healthy source of fat with every meal and snack.
