Food Week 10 - Protein
Frozen foods month continues and we are storing 5 pounds of protein per person this week. Frozen fish and meats should be on sale. Check the grocery store ads today and see if there are meats or fish on sale that you may want to add to your freezer. I scored last week on shrimp and it is still on sale until Wednesday when the specials change. If there is a good deal on protein today go get it and if not wait to see what next week looks like.
No other nutrient plays as many different roles in keeping you healthy than protein. Protein is important for the growth and repair of your muscles, bones, skin, tendons, ligaments, hair, eyes, metabolism, and digestion. Protein helps create the antibodies your immune system needs to fight disease.
