How do I get Enough Protein? What Foods Should I be Eating

Have you also been told that you must consume animal protein sources to be strong, healthy and thriving? Fun fact... its all a lie. There is protein in just about everything! Every food source is made up of all the macronutrients, carbohydrates, fats, and proteins. Even a simple bread roll has roughly 11 grams of protein in it.
