Protein sources - grains, seeds, nuts, legumes, vegetables Protein - it is one of the 3 major categories of nutrients we consume on a daily basis, the others being carbohydrates and fats. But what is so significant about having the  right amounts and types of protein in our diet? Protein is made up of 20 amino acids, 9 of which are essential and can only be gotten by consumption. That means the other 11 can be produced by the body. Proteins are the  building blocks of muscle and, therefore, strength. Muscle is primarily comprised of protein and water, hence another important reason to stay well hydrated.

Nuts - an important protein sourceProtein plays an important role in many functions of the human body. It helps your immune system by creating antibodies to ward off disease. It helps muscles repair and grow. But not just muscle, it is a component of every cell in your body. Although protein can be used as a source of energy, it is best to consume carbohydrates for this purpose, so that protein can be reserved for other functions.

Protein from animals are complete in that they contain all 20 amino acids. Sources would include meat, fish and dairy products. Other sources of protein include legumes (like beans and lentils) and grains, seeds, nuts and vegetables. For vegetarians, it is important to combine legumes with at least 2 plant sources in order to get complete protein. This is why it is more of a challenge for vegetarians to acquire the necessary amounts and types of protein.

Another excellent method of supplementing your protein needs is by consuming protein shakes as a meal replacement and bars as snacks. Again, this is especially important for active vegetarians.
