77 Healthy Protein Recipes with Nuts, Eggs, Lentils, Fish and Meat (2024)

Proteins are the building blocks of our bodies. Our muscles and organs are made of protein. Essentially we are of protein.

It's important to eat good quality protein.

Protein in Food

We eat protein in the form of meat, fish, dairy products such as eggs. Protein is also found in nuts, seeds and other vegetable sources e.g. garbanzo beans (aka chick peas).

Most people eat lots of meat. (How much meat we eat is a controversial topic. Some experts say that red meat causes serious health problems. Others say that grass fed red meat is very healthy.)

I want to concentrate on other forms of protein that we don't eat so much of.

We're going to look at nuts, eggs (a fantastic source of good and cheap protein), fish and lentils.

There are some meat recipes at the bottom for those of you who are looking for new meat recipes.
