The food that we eat every meal can affect our health. To make your health better, you need to change what you eat. This can be done by choosing to eat more protein, especially lean protein. It is an important nutrient that should be eaten in your meal. Lean protein can provide the nutrition that your body needs. When you eat lean protein, your body can function well.  So, you need to choose healthy lean protein sources at every meal. This will help your body gets its needs every day. Most of your sources should be lean protein.

Changing What You Eat

Lean protein has less fat and higher amounts of nutrition. This protein will help you to have a healthy body and weight. You can choose protein such as lean beef, eggs, pork, seafood (especially sardine, salmon, and tuna), legumes, yogurt, and low-fat dairy products. Besides those foods, you need to eat fruit and veggies for nine servings daily. These foods are low in calories and high in fiber as well as protein. Fruits and veggies are rich in other nutrients too. Eating a decent amount of fruits and veggies will help you to fulfill the standard amount of nutrient goals every single day.

For your information, a small piece of fruits is one serving of fruits. As for veggies, one or two cups of veggies is like one serving of veggies. Since you need to eat nine serving fruits and veggies, you need to put them for a half portion of your plate. This amount is needed to help your body meet the standard amount. You can choose many fruits and veggies that have dark colors. Those foods have more benefits than fruits and veggies with paler color. You can choose an orange over lime or you can choose kale over iceberg lettuce.
