If you are looking for a healthy way to shed weight, get more energy, and nourish your muscles (especially after a good workout!), protein is one of the best ways to help you feel your best and round-out your diet.
Numerous studies, including a recent one reported in the Journal of Nutrition, found that moderately high protein diets, around 0.73 grams of protein per pound of body weight, helped people lose weight faster and preserved muscle mass better than those who were on low-protein diets.
However, not all protein sources are created equal, so make sure that you’re getting the best-quality and maximum nutrition from your protein sources. So what do nutrition specialists recommend for high-quality protein sources? In the top list, poultry, pork, and lean beef are listed as top choices for a healthy diet.
However, before you go racing to just any grocery store to grab some chicken nuggets or pulled pork, take note – the quality of the animals matters just as much as the protein source itself. If you are what you eat, as the adage goes, make sure you’re getting your protein from animals that eat a 100% natural diet, are never given growth-hormones or antibiotics, and are able to forage and roam for a well-balanced diet.
Lucky for you, our family farm in Florida raises high-quality, healthy protein
When it comes to meat sources, how the animal is raised and what it eats is one of the most important determinants of the meat’s nutritional value. In fact, purely pasture-raised animals have up to four times more essential vitamins, such as vitamin E, as well as lower cholesterol and more omega-3s than animals raised in industrial settings.
In short, paying attention to where your protein comes from is just as important as what type of protein you choose if you’re going for maximum nutritional punch.
Our family’s sustainable farm in Summerfield, Florida exists to provide the tastiest, healthiest protein sources possible.
