September Wellness Challenge

September 4, 2019 0

Your Wellness Challenge for September is to have at least one serving of protein in each of your meals, 5 days per week. Wondering what a serving is? For lean protein, it’s 3 ounces, or about the size of your palm.

Wondering what protein does for your body? One or two things:

• It is a component of every cell in your body. In fact, hair and nails are mostly made of protein.
• Your body uses it to build and repair tissue.
• You need it to make enzymes, hormones, and other body chemicals.
• It is an important building block of bones, muscles, cartilage, skin, and blood.

Wondering how to get this important nutrient into your diet? Here are some ideas.


Have a happy and healthy September! #behealthywithus
