Pack Your Diet With Protein

meal storage bags

No matter how you get that extra kick of protein into your diet, whether it’s a scoop of protein powder in your pancakes, a protein shake or an extra chicken or turkey breast make sure that you load up. Of course you don’t want to over do it on the protein train, but when you’re training hard there’s nothing worse than under doing your protein intake. It is vital for far too many important reactions within your body and since your body cannot produce these effects on it’s own, you better make sure that you’re packing it in every single day.
