Protein is a macronutrient. To put it simply, protein is one of the main nutrients that every person needs to maintain a healthy body. It helps to repair any internal or external damage, supports the immune system and contributes to an overall feeling of wellbeing.
While macronutrients supply us with the necessary calories (energy) to move and function on a daily basis, micronutrients are the “spark plugs” that literally turn on the ignition, helping the body to effectively and efficiently utilise calories, and driving the many biochemical reactions that occur in our cells.
We’ve all been there – that low grumble that happens between meal times that makes us realise that we could do with a snack. Depending on what we have nearest to us, there’s always the risk of grabbing a pastry, packet of crisps or chocolate which are often unhealthy options. Instead, you can prevent those snack attacks by eating foods that keep you fuller for longer!
