Five healthy protein-rich dinners that will keep you full for hours Wine News

The past week saw the much anticipated reopening of restaurants, pubs and bars across England. But, for those of us who saw our step counts drop dramatically in the third lockdown, it’s the opening of indoor gyms and swimming pools that makes us (literally) jump for joy. And many of us will be looking for a protein rich meal to refuel after a workout.

Responsible for building tissues, cells and muscles as well as hormones and antibodies, protein is an essential nutrient for daily functioning, but especially after exercise, when muscles are particularly receptive to protein synthesis and need to recover and develop. It is recommended that you consume around 50g of protein per day, and a little more after exercise – for perspective, an egg contains 6g of protein.

Eggs, nuts and seeds, lean meats like chicken and turkey, fish, beans and pulses, and soy products including tofu are all great sources of protein. , so achieving your goals does not require the use of protein shakes or bars, which are often full of artificial flavors and colors. Instead, whip up something delicious like a spring frittata, chicken salad, or a delicious turkey burger to satiate your appetite and give you a boost.
