Here’s a shocker, most people in America consume too much protein. Want to know what too much protein intake looks like? A shortened life, kidney stones, dehydration, and calcium loss.
So how much protein do you need a day? Online answers fall around 46 grams for women and 56 grams for men.
You can find a balanced amount of protein in a ton of foods whether you are a carnivore or vegetarian! Just take a look below…In college I was a vegetarian, because I couldn’t afford to eat the good meats listed below. With getting sick I added regular frozen chicken and tuna fish into my diet because I’m living at home and don’t have food options aka I don’t have money to buy my own food so I eat what is here.
grass-fed beef not grain
organic chicken not regular frozen chicken
wild salmon not farmed salmon
tuna fish not fish sticks or popcorn shrimp
Nuts and Seeds:
almonds and almond butter not peanuts and peanut butter
quinoa not green beans or any other large starchy beans
organic DHA-enhanced eggs not egg substitute or regular eggs
organic plain European Greek yogurt not regular yogurt
tempeh not tofu and mock meats
dairy products, but these are not the healthiest forms of protein for us
