Welcome back to Macronutrient Monday! Fats are one of my favorite things to talk about because there are still so many myths out there about them. Fats are a vital part of our daily diet, but most people are confused about what types to eat (if any) and in what quantity. While some fats are finally being revealed as healthy (hello, egg yolks!) I want to help you understand exactly what fats are, and why we should be eating them.
For the second part of our macronutrient series we are going to move on to Protein. Now that I’m sure you have a nice big glass of water to sip on while you read this post, we’ll get right into it!
I feel like most people probably know that protein is important and a fundamental part of a balanced diet (whether you are paleo, gluten free, vegetarian, vegan, etc.), but I think it’s important to learn about why proteins really are so essential.
