Protein is essential for the growth and repair of the body and maintenance of good health. It is the best source of energy and fuel for the day. Protein is your best friend when trying to build muscle with training.
Though protein is key, it’s important to make sure our proteins are organic and that the conditions in which they are grown, raised and processed are sustainable, local and healthy. The more local the meat the less the meat has been processed- more nutritious and contains less calories.
Some terms to look for to ensure your meat is natural and locally grown:
- Grass-fed and grass-finished
- Pasture-raised Poultry
- Heritage Pork
- Wild-caught fish and seafood
